    So does this picture show an edge-to-edge screen?

    What IS edge-to-edge screen technology anyways? Does this picture show it?

    If it were real why would they have just taken a full phone shot? That can be done discretely.
    It's a tease. Chances are it's a controlled leak.

    That definitely looks fake because why does the top edge look like that then the letters at the bottom look different from the top and the bottom letters are hanging off the side.

    It's the gradient effect of the background mixed with the angle, picture focus, and lighting.

    The letters on the bottom are not on the phones actual screen. It is super imposed as a watermark for GSMARENA.com who released the photo

    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.
    That's the great thing about Android though, u always have choice. U r not stuck with almost the same design with every phone. (Cough cough iPhone 4s.)

    I would have preferred no leak at all today. Its not like there was anything jaw-dropping about today's other announcements.

    Oh I can't wait for the 3rd.

    Those buttons are part of the screen lol you can see the separation of the screen and the bezel on the right im pretty sure this is fake

    Edit: I saw the thread explaining the 4.6 inch screen thingy and now im about half half with believing it or not lol sorry guys

    Well...they are both made by Samsung so I'm sure there will be similarities to Samsung's GSII line.

    So it would appear that all was done was moved the buttons up to the screen which now leaves an empty big bezel.

    user "edizzle" mentioned a cool idea: It would be pretty awesome if the big bezel space was used for a touch sensitive swipe area. You could make the buttons appear and reappear or use it to lock/unlock the device.

    Would be cool too if you can change the software/onscreen buttons to like something custom...of if you could theme these new software buttons.

    wishful thinking.

    Edited: added respect

    I always said the Prime would look like the Hercules. Which looks like a bigger Nexus S.

    I think it would be a really cool concept idea. Many would probably say that there's no point though because you already have a giant 4.6 inch screen to swipe on....but i'd like the giant bezel there to do SOMETHING haha.

    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
    Very clever

    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?
    Maybe they couldn't find a way for ICS to detect if the device it's running on, has hardware buttons or not so they had to add an option for it. I'm just guessing right now but that seems like the most logical thing to me.
