    Leak: Is This the Nexus Prime?

    It shows software only buttons, and the info on the screen indicates a 1184x720 screen. No clue of validity but it looks interesting!

    Pentile doesnt seem to matter with THAT kind of clarity...

    This has got me excited

    Yeah, don't like the really large bezel. In fact, I'd be really disappointed if that is in fact the Nexus Prime. While not necessarily a deal-breaker, but I'd have to give other devices more serious consideration should that be it.

    It looks so similar to the Nexus S from what we can see. That's a lot of bezel in the bottom though. What's up with that? Might as well have buttons if you're keeping the space anyway. Lol.

    Edit: Also, if you look at the banding around the device , it looks grayish -- like metal or something of he sorts? I hope it's not a plastic backing.

    I was expecting a thinner bezel. Not really a big deal for me and there could be some unforeseen hardware limitations to having the screen cover the entire front (internal housing of antenna, mic, etc.?). Not sure if that would make a difference.

    Otherwise maybe they went with a 4.3 inch screen to get higher pixel density?

    Taking this with a big grain of salt this time around.

    the bottom bezel looks huge. Otherwise it looks pretty good to me.

    After reading the comments, I feel like I'm the only one who doesn't think the bezel is that big and doesn't really care.

    I don't care either, ifs just surprising. It seems bigger though because of how black the bottom navigation buttons are. If you look at it a certain angle, you'll see that its slightly less than the Nexus S.

    I'm confused. It looks like the screen is around the same size as the GS2. I'm not sure where 4.3" came from.
    What you are seeing here is the first live photo of the Nexus Prime (or part of it), which comes to confirm several important specs of the upcoming device. First, we've got the HD resolution of the Super AMOLED confirmed - that's 720p on a screen just 4.6" in diagonal. As you can see from the image itself this gives you a pixel density of over 320 dpi, which is certainly more than anyone could need.

    Well I'm definitely reserving judgment till we actually see the whole phone instead of just a grainy, angled corner shot.

    the screen is 4.56". it just looks and acts like a 4.3" because of the on-screen navigation buttons.

    1184 x 720 = 322 dpi at 4.3"
    1280 x 720 = 322 dpi at 4.56"

    the missing 96 pixels are the on screen buttons

    To help put my extreme dislike for the bezel in perspective ... I really don't like the idea of having software buttons. I'd much prefer the capacitive buttons (and most prefer hardward buttons). That said, I was thinking that I could possibly overcome my dislike if the software buttons were roughly in the same place on the front of the phone as the capacitive buttons (basically keeping the physical size the same, but increasing the display size, and thereby allowing the software buttons to be in the same location relative to the front of the device as the capacitibe buttons). But, with this screen shot, it appears that the actual display size didn't change and there's a huge bezel where capacitive buttons would normally be, but yet no buttons. Just don't care for it at all. So, I'm with those that really hope that this is a fake.

    For this discussion, it's the area between the bottom of the actual screen display and the edge of the phone.

    The story originally said 4.3". I saw it when they first posted it.

    Here's a thought ... Could the large bezel actually include capacitive buttons, but are dimmed out/turned off and therefore not visible in the picture? Maybe there's an option in ICS to use/not use capacitive buttons in order to be compatible with phones released prior to ICS. Now, if this is the case, I'm definitely back on board.

    seems like a giant waste. Obviously ICS will use capacitive buttons in older phones (see Nexus S leak) but why include that on the new Nexus?
