    will the bezel stop you guys that have a problem with it from buying the phone?
    Absolutely not. As long as the phone overall is aesthetically pleasing, powerful, and an actual Nexus (on Verizon), then I'm game.

    Upside-down photoshopped Nexus S displaying a picture?
    I don' t think so. Look at the top of the pic. Looks like a volume rocker. Seems like if it was an upside down Nexus S, the volume rocker would be a little lower in the pic.

    I'm calling fake, as well. Why? Because I took the image into Photoshop and cranked up the brightness on the image three times and the black area on the left of the bezel at the bottom refuses to lighten due to brightness being increased. This tells me that something has been blacked out/tampered with in an image editing program. Just my opinion, but that's how I feel.

    I did notice, without using photoshop, that that area of the image in picture is "blacker" than the other areas of the phone. Could be the user/camera blocking out ambient light, but it certainly looks different.

    After closely comparing the S to this suppposed Prime they sure look the same. If you take away the lit up buttons on "prime" pic the bezel looks exactly the same size. Vol rocker is in same position and the only thing that seems maybe different is the color of the very outside edge which could be easily made misleading. Hmmmmm... def not sold.

    Compare that to this:
    Google Images

    Realize the phones prob will be very similar but still seems kinda fishy.

    I pretty much always see eye-to-eye with you when I'm reading this forum. I do now as well. That area of the image is ABNORMALLY darker than the rest of the image. Also, though the new Nexus will, reportedly, have the curved glass, I just can't see this thing being just a larger Nexus S. I think it will be a lot different. If it was just a larger Nexus S, then that wouldn't be revolutionary or game-changing. It would just be old-hat, and boring. Again, just my opinion. This thing has been so tightly under wraps that I think we are in for something very special and game-changing. I've never seen a phone, in the last few years, arrive without even one credible image leak. This phone, in my opinion, might make it to announcement without a real image being leaked, and I believe that speaks volumes as to how amazing and game-changing it will be. At least, that's what I hope will happen.

    October 4, 2011-- "GSM Arena, this is Mission Control (Google). You're clear for take off".

    There's no doubt this is a marketing ploy by the Sammy/Google team for us Android Geeks just in time for the iPhoney event.

    Looks very promising. .. Additionally, my perspective of it in his hands sees this phone as being VERY thing. (Hump or no hump on bottom -> can't be determined), but at least we can kind of tell the mid-portion of the phone..

    I don't think the bezel is that big. That picture is taken at the perfect angle to maximize the perception of a large bezel. This is much ado about nothing.
    the bezel to me looks in line with the Charge (which I, as in ME, like).. it helps my PTU case latch on and protects it from face-down falls!

    has anyone thought it might be the nexus prime upside down. i.e. virtual buttons at the top of the screen and that's the top bevel? Although I'm not seeing a speaker grill.

    Yeah, with that larger photo, it looks like the bottom half where the screen dimensions are has been modified in photoshop.

    okay this may be off topic, but regardless what's Nexus Prime design is going to be, we know it won't be worse than what Apple has to offer now.

    That photo doesn't look modified in any way to me. Who knows, but it looks legit to me.

    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
    I calculated 4.33 without counting the buttons, and 4.59 counting the buttons. And that is at 319.96 ppi, since it says 320 not 322, but yeah same thing, just saying I wouldn't be surprised if they officially called this 4.6 inches, I mean the Galaxy Tab 7.7 is actually 7.67 inches.

    .....especially now that we know there is no iPhone 5. It's the 4s. The live blog I've been watching says a A5 dual core (7X faster than iPhone 4) but same form factor and resolution. The cloud stuff seems cool. The iPhone doesn't need more speed since it's OS isn't asked to do a whole lot. Much more interesting stuff going on here IMO.

    I also call fake. If you look closely at the image:
    http://st.gsmarena.com/vv/newsimg/11...marena_001.jpg

    You can see at the botom how the s,w,x,y letters on the left (scaled,width,xdpi,ydpi) are off the screen. In fact that entire block of text on the bottom half appears much crisper than the top half. Also it appears to pop off the screen, whereas the top is definitely inside the glass.
