Samsung has teased us a few times about the Nexus Prime which is expected to get a full debut at CTIA Enterprise. We got the invite and will be at Samsung Mobile Unpacked 2011 on October 11th with full coverage of everything going on there. Not to be outdone by today's iPhone 4S announcement, Samsung has released another teaser today in video form which possibly gives a quick glimpse of the upcoming Nexus Prime. 

Just from looking at the video, right at the 20 second mark we get a glimpse of what's quite possibly the device itself. It appears that Samsung will continue the curved front glass trend that started with the Nexus S, with a display that has an even smaller radius of curvature. There's a small trademark bulge at the bottom, three contact points possibly for a dock (just like the Nexus One used to have), and finally a power button. 

For those not following the Nexus Prime, the device is expected to arrive with Android Ice Cream Sandwich and be powered by a 1.5 GHz OMAP 4460 SoC.

    I wonder if this will be getting Samsung's 1.5GHz Exynos. Seems likely, since this is their own flagship and all. The 1.2GHz variant is already the fastest SoC in a smartphone shipping today, and its rumoured the new one will have double the GPU clock speed as well, so that will be quite a beast.

    A 14" tablet :D

    So... who has the patent for curved glass on phones? That's how pathetic the patent situation has gotten. Glass has been curved pretty much since man first discovered how to make it. But the first thing that crossed my mind upon seeing this was, who holds the patent for the "innovative" idea of using curved glass on a phone?

    This seems that it will be a nice device.

    Do we have any good direct comparisons of their relative power? It sounds like the A5 has a particularly excellent GPU, and I'd love to know the relative performance expected of the 4S vs the Prime.

    That's what I'd like to see too. Apparently the 1.5GHz Exynos will have a GPU clocked nearly twice as high as the 1.2GHz one, so that would put it in the MP2's range of performance.

    is there any article that discusses the duel-2 processor in the smartphone?
