While little is still known (officially, of course) about the upcoming Nexus Prime, we do know that it will be coming this fall as the flagship reference device packed with Google’s next generation of Android –  Ice Cream Sandwich, the device has currently leaked prematurely under its Nexus Prime name by UK retailer Handtec.

There’s been a lot of confusion in the blogosphere regarding the upcoming Nexus Prime, and for good reason. There’s been leak, after leak after leak. Some of it has been legitimate, while some has been distracting and irrelevant. Here’s to setting the record straight. The Nexus Prime will have the following specs below, in addition to the latest iteration of Android – Ice Cream Sandwich Android 4.0

Specs & Details

  • 4.5-5.65 inch curved glass display with Super AMOLED HD screen that supports a 720p HD resolution of 1280 X 720 pixels.
  • a sleek shell with edge-to-edge glass and very minimal bezel and metallic chrome trim
  • 5-megapixel camera, capable of 1080p HD, thanks to its vastly improved image sensor
  • dual-core Texas Instruments 1.5 GHz CPU
  • 1 GB of dual channel RAM
  • 8.8mm thin

Thanks to recent leak on retailer Handtec, it looks like the day for the release of the highly anticipated Nexus Prime is upon us. Additionally, we know from Executive Chairman of Google, Dr. Eric Schmidt’s public disclosure, that the Nexus Prime will be available as of late October, but in all likelihood will ship by early November.

It looks like they have really hit this one out of the park, if the above render is to be taken as fact. For now, let’s sit idly by and keep our fingers crossed that this is, in fact, the case. I for one will be holding off on buying any Android phone until Ice Cream Sandwich devices come out, and it’s looking like that day is less than 6-8 weeks away

The recently leaked image above shows us that the Nexus Prime will, in fact, be sporting a 1280×720 display!

With its contoured Super HD AMOLED Plus display, lightning fast dual core 1.5Ghz processor, Ice Cream Sandwich with all of its improvements and full support for dual core processors built under the hood, as well as its claimed 180% performance improvement over previous iterations of Android, it’s likely to be the best superphone on the block, and will likely give the iPhone 5 a real run for its money too. And that’s a wrap, folks.

Anyone holding out for the Nexus Prime?
