Samsung Droid Prime profile shows just WVGA screen, TI chip

Samsung Droid Prime user agent slips out

Samsung's Droid Prime, possibly the Nexus Prime, has had its user agent profile leaked in a form that at once called into doubt and confirmed rumors. The web recognition code for the phone, the i9250, has the Android phone running a 480x800 screen and not the 720x1280 screen commonly rumored before. It would also use an ARM11 architecture more closely linked to TI's OMAP chips, which could support its using a dual-core 1.5GHz processor.

Whether or not Samsung is being completely faithful to the features is difficult to determine. The company might deliberately underreport specifications and shows the MMS photo resolution at 1600x1200. That may be a reference to the front camera and not the back.

Most anticipate the phone being a showcase for the next version of Android, Ice Cream Sandwich, which may use TI chips as its reference. It has repeatedly been attached to Verizon and may be Verizon's substitute for the Galaxy S II. A similar resolution could hint that the Droid Prime and Nexus Prime are just adaptations of the Galaxy S II or its LTE variant for Ice Cream Sandwich.

A release is due as soon as October and may see the Droid Prime a Verizon exclusive. [via PocketNow]
