Samsung Nexus Prime: Galaxy branding and possible metal design

Earlier on we gave you some exciting information on possible specs for the Samsung Galaxy S III smartphone, but now we have further details on the Samsung Nexus Prime handset, thought to be releasing some time before Christmas.

This information is definitely worth sharing, as although it’s still not anything official from either Samsung or Google, the details have come from the same source that has apparently leaked hardware specs for the Samsung Galaxy S III as we mentioned above.

First things first as we may be hearing of a potential name change for the handset which has commonly been referred to as the Google or Samsung Nexus Prime. Instead of this, consumers may find that the final name for the handset could turn out to be the Samsung Galaxy Nexus.

Aside from the 1.5Ghz dual-core processor that we already know about, the Samsung rep responsible for the info claims that the device will be packed with a 2000mAh battery, as well as a new metal body for the phone which is thought to be around 8.8mm thick.

The source also reiterates that Verizon will be the exclusive carrier for the Samsung Galaxy Nexus and that the performance is apparently meant to be ‘blazingly fast’ – and so it should be with a 1.5Ghz Exynos processor running the show.

Surely we are just weeks way now from an official announcement from Samsung and Verizon – how longer are they going to keep us waiting? Mind you, the Droid Bionic has only just been released on Verizon, so maybe Big Red are holding out for a few more batch of sales before they start advertising their next big smartphone launch, pretty logical from their point of view when you think about it.

How interested are you in the Galaxy Nexus, do you like the name change? The idea of a metal body with a Nexus S-like design is certainly appealing so we hope this part is true.
