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.

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:

But, a tipster has said that the upcoming Google phone from Samsung will be called the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, rather than the Nexus Prime, Nexus 3, Nexus Plus, or some other rumored name being floated around.

The Samsung GT-I9250, rumored to be the upcoming Google Nexus Prime, was spotted appearing on Samsung’s official support page.
A tipster pointed out the page to AndroidGuys and was able to provide a screenshot.
Assuming authenticity of the tip, the presence of the GT-I9250 on Samsung’s support site practically confirms the existence of the GT-I9250. Such confirmation will bring us one step closer to knowing more about whether it is or is not the Google Nexus Prime rumored to be running out of Samsung’s stables in October.
Handset model GT-I9250 appeared on a leaked list of upcoming Samsung devices and was shown on the list as the only [...]

Samsung’s own legal department confirmed these juicy tidbits about the Nexus Prime–that is, if the cease and desist letter that Geek reported about earlier today is authentic.
A developer apparently got hold of leaked firmware purported to be that of the Nexus Prime. When Samsung [...]
