Edited the month in the title to the correct month. sorry guys!

BTW I love my X but it needs to be replaced and this is going to make for a REAL hard decision in October since I was going to originally wait to decide on the Vigor or Bionic then. Now its going to be between all three??? PITA

Well as long as this is the Nexus and updates are from Google, I will be happy, assuming the rest of the spec match up to previous speculation.

I do find it a little funny that VZW doesn't think the SGSII will be "competitive" if the BGR source is to be believed. The SGSII will be awesome. This may be better, but who can tell at this point ...

Given that it's labeled as a Droid Prime, it's probably going to be full of bloatware and whatnot. But I could care less, if Samsung keeps with its practice of unlocked bootloaders and donations to devs.

If this is the ICS, 4.65" beast we've been hearing about, this will be the phone of the year, and will make me perfectly happy until my upgrade in 2013.

Edit:
For what it's worth, I texted my sister (VZW employee) and asked about this. She texted back "What's the model number?" and I texted back "SCH-i515" (from the article).

She texted back "Can't say."

Who knows what that means, but at least she didn't say "No."

Sorry guys. But I can't believe that this phone will be the only ICS phone out there.

And given the fact that this is the "Droid" Prime, Google/Samsung might be releasing other Primes on other carriers, maybe even within the same general time frame.
BTW, this is also suggested in this link.

One thing doesn't make sense. Why would Verizon pass on the SGS2 because it couldn't compete as well with iPhone 5 as the Prime?

Isn't Verizon going to sell the iPhone 5, too? Why would it want to compete with itself?

Well remember, it's basically a battle between Android and IOS. Google vs. Apple, when you get right down to it.

Verizon doesn't really have a horse in the race in the sense that you mentioned.

But Google's going to want the first ICS device if it's going to go head to head vs. Apple. How it got Verizon to do it is anyone's guess. But I could see Samsung agreeing to "Prime instead of SGSII", because it will still make a ton of money.

But I highly doubt that other carriers won't be getting some version of the Prime, including those that will be carrying iPhone 5. It won't be labeled DROID Prime, of course, but I'm sure they'll have their own versions.

I do think that October might be a "best case scenario". I hope it's realistic, but if it gets pushed back to November I still see it worth waiting for.

This just keeps getting better and better. Now it's the Droid Prime, not Nexus Prime. I came here from the Stratosphere subforum which came about with the extinction of the Function subforum. Crazy.

I'm in the exact same boat as you man. I was definitely thinking I'd be a proud owner of a Function by now! I guess we just have to wait and see. I'm just hoping my Og Droid will last until Verizon actually releases something decent.

Yeah, I feel the same. Function and Stratosphere just came and go here without seeing light of day. Apparently verizon ditched original SGS2 in favor of something better with LTE from Sammy. I don't mind them getting recently announced LTE SGS2 before Prime, but looks like they are just gearing up for Droid Prime. Hopefully this device is real and doesn't end up like Function, Stratosphere.

Now I have a new phone to watch. I wanted the Bionic but settled for the Thunderbolt. I was thinking of buying the Bionic off contract after some early adopters had been used as Guinea pigs, now it looks like I will be waiting to see if VZW gets the Prime. Now I know why the fanboys like having just one iOS device.

It seems pretty solid that Prime will be heading to Verizon. But regardless, hopefully by the time the Vigor comes out we'll have some more info on release date, etc. so that you can make an informed decision.

I really like the looks of the Vigor, but I've heard bad things about HTC and battery life.

Calling it Droid Prime instead of Nexus Prime does not give me warm and fuzzies at all. I'd hate to get the Droid Prime (full of Verizon bloat of course and stuck with Samsung's slow updates) while all other carriers get the Nexus Prime version of the phone.

Hopefully it will be labeled as a Nexus device for Big Red.

I hope so too..

Lest we all remember the Xoom and the reasoning Google wouldn't let VZW brand it as a Nexus device..

Here's my concern. Up till now, the model number rumored to be associated with the nexus prime is : GT-I9250.

Now, they're saying the potential droid prime will be: SCH-i515

Totally different model numbers. So are these totally different phones with different specs, or is "sch-" just a verizon model numbering scheme?

Some rumor-guys are saying the DROID branding is full of BS.

P3Droid

TeamAndIRC

Which kind of makes sense, given that it would be strange to have 2 DROID devices with a month of each other.

But the Droid X2, Droid 3, and Droid Bionic are all pretty much in the same time-frame, so who knows.

Argh!

The Nexus Prime is going to have so many rumors. One contradicting the one before. I think we should wait for something concrete. I just hope this beast comes to all carriers.

SCH is a Samsung specific model number.

GT-I is model number scheme for global version. SCH is just for samsung phones on Verizon, which is ususally CDMA variation of GT-I one.

It doesn't take much to speculate that the next Verizon Samsung phone would be the SCH-i515, so that doesn't really prove anything.

I don't think this will be Binged no matter it's Droid or Nexus. No phone ever got Binged with such name. I don't care for name as long as it comes to verizon with rumored spec list.

I'm inclined to lean towards BGR reports on the Prime. They were the first ones (in another Exclusive, probably by the same sources as the latest Exclusive) to report that Samsung was making the first ICS phone and that it would be dubbed the Prime. ICS has been long-rumored to be released in October. It all makes sense.

Google's first Ice Cream Sandwich phone to be manufactured by Samsung, possibly dubbed 'Nexus Prime'

They also leaked in an Exclusive some of the specs that have been leaked by the Korean Times.

http://www.bgr.com/2011/06/15/exclusive-google-nexus-4g-detailed-720p-display-4g-lte-android-4-0/

http://www.bgr.com/2011/08/18/google-nexus-prime-android-4-0-phone-could-launch-in-october/

So yeah, I think they have a good amount of credibility.

Nice find, thanks. I really don't care in the least if this is actually a Google Nexus phone or not. What it appears to be is the same Prime that's been leaked to BGR since June, meaning that the specs are the same. (LTE, 1.5GHz dual core, 1 GB RAM, 4.5" Super AMOLED HD screen, and ICS.)

If the Nexus 3 comes out in December, I can't imagine it will be any better than this, except for maybe a thinner 4G chipset. And, if Nexus 3 comes out later in the year, it probably won't be a Verizon phone, just like it hasn't been the last 2 times.

If all we get is this Prime, I think that's plenty.

The discussion about Bing was a joke to an earlier post I wrote, with a mock discussion between Verizon and Google about a Nexus Phone on Verizon. I think we can all agree no Droid or Nexus phone will ever be Binged.

Muuuuuch more useful than more megapixels, which just get thrown away when cropping photos to any practical size.

Agreed, that would be absurd.

I just want to know if this will come to Telus and the release date. I need to get rid of my BB Storm thats just a POS now constantly rebooting and freezing and it'll be between this and the Samsung Hercules which is rumored to come onto Telus.

Not to be a prick or anything, but there's an awful lot of "[carrier|manufacturer] has never done X before, so we know they won't be doing X in the future" which doesn't really hold. The industry has had its share of seismic shifts lately (Google/Motorola/HP), so it won't be too surprising if some corporate strategies change to accommodate.

It doesn't take much to speculate that the next Verizon Samsung phone would be the SCH-i515, so that doesn't really prove anything.
Not just Verizon. i own a Cricket store and our Samsungs are SCH as well so are Sprint's. SCH is the "pre fix" for CDMA Samsung phones as mentioned earlier.

It won't be exclusive to Verizon. It's either a completely different phone or bad news when it comes to rumors. They can't & won't rebrand a Nexus. Just wait until it becomes more concrete. Nexus 3 on multiple carriers

I do hope you know that stuff you were "pricking" to was P3Droid's tweet. I agree with you.

Just so we're clear. P3Droid was pricked, not me, right?

It won't technically be a Nexus if it's really a DROID Prime, but like mentioned earlier, OG Droid was the first with Eclair, so another Droid could be the first with Ice Cream Sandwich. Google has only debuted new software on 2 devices so far, right?

They didn't put out some Nexus tablet, they debuted Honeycomb on the Xoom. So I don't really put a lot of stock in the "Is it a Droid or isn't it" spiel.

The rumors, since June, have been that a "Prime" device was going to be made by Samsung, to be released alongside ICS, in October. BGR has had a few exclusives on this line of reasoning that have panned out. Until proven otherwise, I'll believe BGR, no matter what P3Droid says.

To me BGR is more credible than Droid-Life or P3Droid.

I don't care what it's called, but if updates aren't handled by Google, I don't know that I'm still interested. That was the whole point of me wanting to move over to the Nexus world in the first place.

I've never had a Nexus, so I'm used to slow/no updates. ANYTHING is a step up from what I'm on now... well, almost
