[Rumor] Nexus Prime Could be Called Samsung Galaxy Nexus with 4.65" Screen
As if all the other rumors circulating about the Nexus Prime weren't enough, now we have a new one. This one seems rather "iffy" so take it with a lot of salt. Supposedly, sources have indicated that the next Nexus device will indeed be from Samsung and will be the GT-I9250, but that the name for this device will actually be the Samsung Galaxy Nexus.
According to the report, this will be the first Google Ice Cream Sandwich device, and will have a 4.65" screen. Additionally, the phone will reportedly have a metal shell, instead of plastic, and an approximate 324.6 pixel density. Finally, the source also indicated that an October release announcement would be coming fairly quickly.
What is rather telling about this latest rumor that makes it "less than credible" are a couple of things. First, the name sounds fishy... like something a Samsung "fan-boy" made up. Second, the idea that Samsung would use a metal casing on their flagship phone is highly unusual. This would be a substantial break from the norm, as almost all of their high end devices have been plastic to keep them light.
What do you guys think?
