Samsung's Nexus Prime for Google may hit Verizon

Verizon might get a Google Nexus phone for the first time if rumors are accurate. A "Samsung Prime," a reference to the Nexus Prime, has supposedly been seen in Verizon's offices, supporting the notion that it was in testing. What TechnoBuffalo was told lined up with earlier talk that had it carrying very advanced 4.5-inch, 720p display and Ice Cream Sandwich.

Not much else was mentioned. The phone may be a close relative of the Galaxy S II with a dual-core processor. A recent roadmap pointed to an even larger 4.65-inch screen but a lower five-megapixel rear camera. Samsung has since responded and said the roadmap wasn't accurate, although it hasn't said whether that was the whole roadmap or only certain specifics.

A launch for the Nexus Prime could come as soon as October. Verizon isn't likely to have a worldwide exclusive and might not have a US exclusive either. Previously, T-Mobile was the first to get each model and has now been joined by AT&T and Sprint.
