The Samsung handset rumored to transform into the Nexus Prime upon release has received the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) stamp of approval just recently–and FCC documents suggest that not only is it compatible with AT&T, T-Mobile, and Canadian networks but is also as big as the Samsung Galaxy S II.
The Samsung GT-I9250 appeared in recently published FCC reports, which showed that the handset carries communications equipment compatible with GSM 850, GSM 1900, WCDMA II, WCDMA IV, and AWS 1700 bands.
No hints of CDMA or LTE support were reported, but the FCC information does suggest that the GT-I9250 (FCC ID A3LGTI9250) would work with the 3G [...]
A tipster who asked to remain anonymous has unleashed what could potentially launch a new wave of rumors and speculations about the Nexus Prime. In a nutshell, the Samsung GT-I9250 is the Nexus Prime, and it comes with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, a 5-megapixel primary shooter, and a 1,750-mAh battery.

But, here’s the freshest and the juiciest so far–straight from Romania:The version number [...]
The iPhone 4S disappointed a lot of Apple fans expecting rumored specs for an iPhone 5. Will the Nexus Prime go the same route? Probably yes, and probably no–depending on whom you believe at this rumor-filled stage of the Nexus Prime saga.
Two conflicting reports have surfaced just a few hours ago regarding the upcoming Nexus Prime. Both reports claim to have been based on credible hearsay from reliable sources.
While both new reports affirm most of the Nexus Prime specs that have been circulating the Web, one report depicts an inebriated set of Nexus Prime specs that will truly make the flagship device an outstanding pioneer, and the other report depicts rather [...]
Samsung decided this week to tease everyone with its “perfect combination” video, which almost everyone claims to be definitely referring to the Nexus Prime. Alas, the video does not seem to show signs of a release date for the Nexus Prime, but if leaked tips were to be believed, we can see the Nexus Prime on Verizon Wireless on October 27.

Just this week, Samsung released a teaser video that showed a quick glimpse of what almost all Android fans suspect to be the Nexus Prime. And, if you look close enough at the frames in the video’s last few seconds, it looks as if the Nexus Prime is hanging on to something very slim, interesting, and curved.
While everybody else was still drooling over the teaser video, Joe Lancaster had an epiphany, and it goes a little something like this:

Three of the hottest Android smartphones that many people have been patiently waiting for have started appearing within the Cellebrite system–the Google Nexus Prime, the Motorola DROID HD, and the HTC Vigor.
