EXCLUSIVE: Samsung Nexus Prime first live shot leaks - GSMArena.com news
it seems confirmed that nexus prime is metal unibody with gorilla glass
Hopefully it won't have a pentile matrix display.
personally I really hope to find a pentile matrix in the Prime.
at such a huge pixel density the pentile matrix will be invisible and pentile technology will have the room to show its advantages:
1) Really more efficient screen
2) Better contrast
3) Improved sharpness
4) Improved color gamut

From that blog:
September 14, "I just got my hands on what is currently the highest resolution PenTile panel with pixels at 325 dpi. This resolution is very similar to the dpi in an iPhone 4. It is in a smartphone from a major brand supplier that is not Motorola.
As it turns out, this display is a PenTile RGBW LCD rather than a PenTile RGBG OLED. I measured the white luminance at about 400 nits.
Any guesses from the phone experts which phone this might be?"
4.5" 1280x720 = 325ppi. Could this point to this phone being the Nexus Prime, and that the NP would therefore have a 4.5" Pentile screen?
Whoops, I missed the LCD instead of OLED part. Might make it a HTC phone then, Vigor maybe?
I assumed the Prime would have a Super AMOLED+ RGB screen just like the GS2 except higher resolution? Why are you all assuming it will have a Pentile display? I'm not way too concerned about it since they both have their trade-offs, but I think I would rather have an RGB screen for fear of the visible lines that plague Pentile screens. I just got to handle my friends Droid 3 over the weekend and it was the first thing I noticed about it. Even though it's higher resolution, it doesn't even seem as crisp as my old Droids lower res LCD RGB screen. But I know Moto's Pentile displays aren't AMOLED, so maybe that will make up for it.
No, it'll definitely be Samsung. It's been confirmed that "Verizon Wireless will soon launch a Samsung device with very similar specifications as in, nearly identical specifications but it just wont be a GALAXY S II" (source). That definitely doesn't meet the Stratosphere specs, so there has to be another Samsung phone coming, which lines it up as the Prime. Also, everything leaked about the Vigor so far (which has been a lot, included a whole system file dump) pretty much confirm it's not a Nexus/ICS device.
The curved screen indicates OLED, too. I don't think it's possible with an LCD.You need to read a bit better. I just pulled up a quote from the Pentile blog that I thought might pertain to the Prime. Upon someone mentioning the LCD vs. OLED comment I concluded that the comment did not refer to the Prime (because that is pretty well established to have an AMOLED screen) and instead the comment on the Pentile blog referred to another device which I speculated might be the Vigor (~4.5" 720P Pentile LCD Screen).

I never said that HTC would be making the Prime.
*Looks at GS2, looks back at Nexus, back at GS2*
I want the Nexus
is anyone else gonna think that there is a curved tablet behind/docked to that phone?
That 720p looks delicious when using video out to a huge TV. Also NFC transactions and first time google support is awesome, I think I'll trade in.
Trying to decide which carrier I want to get this phone one. For the Verizon customers here, what kind of 3G speeds do you typically see in your market? Sprint's is atrocious so I think I'm done with them. LTE I don't care so much about because of the battery-sucking nature of that beast.
A co-worker just brought in an S2 and is getting 6.5mb down on HSPA+ through AT&T. Fast, but I swore never to go back to AT&T.
Man, it does look nice. If it's a metal unibody and has good battery life, I'd consider going Samsung.
I really hope this is the mother of all Android phones and comes out with ICS day one. It would be nice to have a true successor to the Nexus One, that is, a phone that sets precedents for subsequent phones. The Nexus S was nice but it wasn't quite as defining.
