Anonymous, 04 Oct 2011Might be the Galaxy S II killer this one. Apple are still yet to produce a Galaxy S II killer.The Galaxy S II is the past, we should all be speculating about the Galaxy S 3 by now. Now THAT monster of a phone WILL set the standards and raise the bar ten fold.
Here is my slogan which I posted many times. Samsung: The future is here. :> The Nexus Prime has monster specs, no one will beat it this year.

AnonD-455, 04 Oct 2011Those virtual buttons are taking up my precious screen estate! Bring back the hardware buttons... morethe "touch buttons" dont look superimposed over the screen, they look to be similar to capacitive-like, yet built in. It seems like it wont really be taking up screen "real-estate". Let's hope for that? :)
Its so much more versatile than a piece of fruit (apple). Iphone 5 eat your heart out.
Milkyway_Galaxy, 04 Oct 2011Do you mean the Nexus Prime is a developer device. Err i thought it was going to be a consumer... moreThe Galaxy series are consumer devices ,the Prime is not a Galaxy device ,it is a Samsung-manufactured Google dev phone by definition ,being sold to consumer markets does not change a thing ,it's still a dev phone . Why do you think all the Nexuses have the stock android and are easiest to develop on ? [easiest to unlock / root etc.]
This is the high tech phone, not the iPhone5 or iPhone6! Eager to know more info about hardware spec!!!
AnonD-1036, 04 Oct 2011no hardware button? so how about 2.X.X users? can we update our phone to that firmware? There's already been leaks showing ICS running on a Nexus S. So, it will be backwards compatible. Soft-keys will probably only be enable with a HD resolution display.
AnonD-455, 04 Oct 2011Those virtual buttons are taking up my precious screen estate! Bring back the hardware buttons... moreThe advantage with soft keys is, you can go full-screen and use more of the front real-estate.
The risk is of course that they will be more sensitive to bugs in apps, causing them to be inaccessible. But I guess there will be a "fail-safe" using the lock button.
I wonder I wonder.Mmaybe LG got the contract deal for the better Fugitsu-Toshiba LCD 367PPI AH IPS for their LU series handsets. Samsung may have had to make do with technology as good as Hitachis 327PPI 4.0" LCD & stretched it to 4.6" upon the glamourous SuperAMOLED PLUS HD
no hardware button?
so how about 2.X.X users?
can we update our phone to that firmware?
Anon, 04 Oct 2011>>2. PenTILE matrix THAT. IS. NOT. SOMETHING. ANYBODY. IS. SUPPOSED. TO. BE. PROUD. ... moreAye your right :(, that not matter it looks like the device has a RGB three pixels per sub pixel Liquid Crystalk Display anyway. So no worries. Nice one eh!
Anon, 04 Oct 2011While that is true... I don't exactly know how they make their measurements, since xdpi __shou... moreit should not be lower if it is measured with real pixels, but my presumption was made because those numbers are not equal, so the measurement is maybe made with subpixels...
Nexus Prime image leaks only couple of hours prior to next iPhone announcement. How convenient :-)
Hitachi have developed a 4.5" AH In plane switching Liquid crystal display. 1280x720 pixels, 1.100.1 contrast Ratio, 329 Pixels Per Inche.
Toshiba or Fugitsu-Toshiba have developed a 4.0" Liquid Crystal Display. 1280x720, 1.500.1 Contrast Ratio, 367 Pixels per Inche.
Tһеѕе two חеw displays υѕе Low Temperature Poly-Silicon technology wһісһ enables tһеm tο һаνе a 1,500:1 contrast ratio, tһе ability tο ԁіѕр&#406;ау 92% οf tһе colors іח tһе NTSC color gamut, аחԁ viewing angels οf 176 degrees both horizontally аחԁ vertically
So is this samsungs own or are they using Toshibas LCD??? This is strange, the smaller 4.0 lcds are 367PPI but the larger 4.5" of the Hitachi are 329PPI. So Samsung must have struck gold & flawed the competition with with their own R&D or Hitachi or Toshiba have made advancement & sammy are using one of the two technologies.
How interesting indeedy!
Milkyway_Galaxy, 04 Oct 2011Samsung have some super exciting advancement announcements. Read on...

If anything, it's the biggest step back in display technology ever.
Marko K., 04 Oct 2011I think it is not pentile, look at the xdpi and ydpi, one is three times bigger than the other... moreWhile that is true... I don't exactly know how they make their measurements, since xdpi __should not__ be lower than the dpi value
it should be xdpi 320 and ydpi 960 or something (rgb stripe has 3 subpixels aligned horizontally)
also, check out that dropbox link I posted earlier. it shows some vague typical pentile patterning
