Nexus Prime: A better look with a helping of speculation
I toyed around with a pair of screenshots from the Nexus Prime video (I have been bored today, and it took all of 5 minutes ). Basically, I managed to get a pretty good view...of the side of the phone. Not much of interest, per say. 2-tone design, docking connectors, camera hump. However, the interesting part comes when you start taking measurements. (measurements on attached pic, not the SGS2 pic )
If we assume the power button is the same size as my galaxy S (big assumption) of a quarter of an inch, you find the whole device to be right around 5" tall. What else is right around 5" tall? The SGS2 HD LTE with it's 4.65 SAMOLED HD screen and buttons, there's about 1/8" difference, little less.
Then again, I always thought the SGS2 HD LTE buttons looked like they were squeezed on as an afterthought, and I'm not sure they could cut any space without cutting buttons. What do you guys think?
Also, it makes it look like the total height difference from the curve is about a quarter of an inch. Not a big curve at all. I forgot to add the lines in the picture, but it would also appear that at the thinnest point in the middle, the device is 6.4mm thin! Almost 13mm from bottom of the chin to highest point of the glass.
Also, ignore the colors around the text. There was overlapping text from the separate screen shots, and it was butting me. Everything else is just lining up two images from two different times in the clip where the light was hitting different parts, and lightening it a little.
And yes, massive levels of speculation and assumption. I'm just taking this in good fun. Entertaining myself with what
may well be probably is wrong till the announcement.
