EXCLUSIVE: We get the allegedly proper Nexus Prime specs - read the full textToday is a busy day for Nexus Prime - it's been all over the news more than twice. Just hours earlier, we told you about a 'trusted source' who told BGR the phone's key specifications. Well, they may turn out to be completely and utterly wrong. We were contacted by a tipster from inside Google,...

so how fast is the PowerVR SGX543MP2 compare to the ARM Mali-400 MP do you think? 50% or more faster? GPU

4.65inch is soo big but if its 50% faster then i might get it instead of the sgs2. i dont care about cpu i can overlock the sgs2 to 1.5ghz so just tell me how fast the gpu is

"...which should be good for a couple of days use without charging..."
Hahahaha, since when does: 1.5GHz dual-core CPU + dual-core GPU + 4.65" screen + only 2050mAh battery = couple of days without charging ??? Yeah, maybe if you only look at the phone and don't actually use it.
This beast will eat batteries for breakfast! :)
On a side note:
Why do smartphone manufactuers keep trying to push screen size to the max? This thing doesn't go in every pocket! And I would like to have my phone in my pocket!
This is neither a phone (too big) nor a tablet (too small)!

There's no way it will have the new Exynos in it...atleast the Verizon Prime version won't. The reason being is that Ice cream Sandwich was the chosen Chip for ICS and ICS was built for that chip like Honeycomb was optimized for the Tegra 2. So the Omap 4460 is the only chip that ICS is optimized for at the moment...meaning that it is coded for that chip and it will be blazing fast and smooth...hopefully like the Iphone is so smooth due to it being optimized for it's hardware. I don't see the ICS Verizon Nexus being anything but an OMAP 4460. Just my opinion

The Exynos 4212 is 30 percent more energy saving than its predecessor with the new design on Samsung’s 32nm High-K Metal Gate (HKMG) low-power process.

Rumor has it saying that the Samsung Exynos 4212 processor will be powering the upcoming Samsung Nexus Prime.

The GPU on Exynos 4212, is NOT yet named, so it could be anything, we don't know yet.
p.s BGR were always Apple fanboys

> In reply to [deleted post]not exactly...

there is this new exynos 4212 chipset... and its GPU is not named yet...

but it was rumoured to be either a higher clocked Mali 400MP-GPU or something new from Imagination...

something interesting about the exynos 4212:

its 30% more power efficient because of its 32nm production (usual other phones have 45nm produced SoCs)

If this batch of rumors turns out to be true, I seriously might consider selling my laptop for it :) I only use it for gaming anyway :D But the purported graphics chip is what really got my attention; if it's true, then the iPhone 4S is outdated before it even shipped :))
