Market Status: Not Released
Release date: Renamed to Galaxy Nexus
The Droid Prime was a rumored name…it’s now called the Galaxy Nexus.
Many were disappointed that the Galaxy S2 ended up not hitting the Verizon smart phone lineup this year. However, Verizon said they passed because they have an even better phone! And, lets be honest, the Droid Bionic is very similar to the Galaxy s2 and a slew of other high end 4.3″ screen smart phones.
The latest fairly certain rumor is that Verizon will be selling the Nexus Prime….or the Droid Prime soon.
- 4.5-inch+ Super AMOLED Plus (or even HD) touchscreen
- Texas Instruments OMAP 4470 (or 4460) dual-core processor clocked anywhere between 1.5 GHz and 1.8 GHz
- 1280×720 HD display resolution
- 1.0 GB of RAM
- 32 GB of internal storage
- Verizon’s 4G LTE connection
Since Verizon passed on the popular Galaxy S2, Verizon said they’d have a new phone that is even better.
Also, the Droid Prime (or Nexus Prime) will launch in October and possibly have Android 4.0 as well as an even faster processor than the Galaxy S2. Android 4.0 or the Android “Honeycomb” build is tailored for tablets.
Why is Verizon betting on the Droid Prime? Because they think the Galaxy S2 is a great phone but might not hold up to the new iPhone 5 that will be launching fall/winter 2011.
In addition, Verizon is launching the Droid Bionic on September 9 and it has very similar specs to the Galaxy S2.
It’s obvious that Verizon wants devices to separate itself from the pack versus the iPhone 5.
