iPhone 4S Rival Alert: Samsung Galaxy Nexus Prime Pic Emerges On Greek Website

A rendering of what looks like the new Samsung Galaxy Nexus Prime has been published by a Greek website called Digital Life (opens in new tab).

The handset is positively massive with a curved profile and a huge screen, surrounded by a rather thin bezel.

Digital Life presents it as the Nexus Prime, or the GT-9520, the handset which was supposed to be launched last week, but whose launch was postponed because of the death of Apple's former CEO, Steve Jobs.

The device is set to come with a 4.65-inch Super AMOLED screen with a 1280x720 pixel resolution, which means that it will approach Apple's Retina Display pixel density.

Other unconfirmed specifications include 1GB RAM, 16GB onboard storage, the absence of a microSD card slot, a dual core SoC clocked at 1.2GHz (possibly an Exynos one like on the Galaxy S2), a front facing 1.3-megapixel camera and oddly, according to the Greek website, a five megapixel rear one.

There are three virtual buttons at the front and not surprisingly, the smartphone is set to run Android Ice Cream Sandwich completely naked, without any additional code either from networks or from the manufacturer.
