Nothing personal - but that's the way it's got to be.

This is now the Number One Thread on the Internet for user-vetted Prime News - let's respect that newcomers have a right to know, with less noise.

Cheers, many thanks to all for working with us on this.
One of these posts from a mod isn't like the others. I plan to observe the rules of the thread, but if they've changed then maybe the first post above should be updated.

FWIW, sometimes it seems that when a few of us really get into talking chip tech (on topic!), other people get bored to tears. I guess there's a middle ground in there somewhere.

You should be able to search the FFC yourself for the info without waiting for it to be leaked I have done it many many times looking for amateur radio information.

Not to be rebellious or anything, Steven, but he's right. I literally hold my head in my hands and glaze over with all this chip crap, and sometimes we need to lighten the mood in order to keep us from spiraling into a depressive mood because of negative news coming out.

But I will abide by the rules. Although I still think CK should be banned for that Shelby Township talk!

First of all I want to apologize to anyone who took my post this morning that was deleted by the Mods as being rude or inappropriate. I am not sure looking back at what was wrote how it could have been taken the wrong way but that it not my judgement and it was removed so again I apologize.

Second I have posted my opinions on lots of things in this thread and they are nothing more than opinions and as I said I will own them when the facts come out so that being said I am going to put my final opinion on what Specs I believe Verizon's version of the Nexus device will have.

I am going to use vz_wired's posts as my guide and attempt to go from there and put the specs down using logic and maybe if vz_wired feels generous he will chime in on my results...or maybe not, and that's OK.

We had BGR release specs on Oct. 6th that were less than stellar and most were disappointed including myself, I remember vz_wired tell us that we would be VERY HAPPY when the phone was announced. By the response of the members in this thread that was not the reaction so those specs must not be accurate.

Later that morning vz_wired posted this...

#1 - One of the biggest disappointments seemed to stem from the Processor spec, it has long been rumored that the Nexus would have a 1.5GHz dual core processor and the TI OMAP 4460 cloked at 1.2GHz just didn't make us VERY HAPPY so as I have stated I believe the processor will be the exynos 4212 clocked at 1.5GHz that includes the PowerVR SGX543MP2 GPU that processor is produced by Samsung and I believe is ready and will be used in the Nexus for Verizon.

#2 - The next correction I believe will be in the Camera, maybe it wasn't such an issue with us in this thread but I believe it is a focus for Samsung and Google in the Nexus phone. I believe it will have a 8 MP rear and 2 MP front facing camera with Samsung's new S5K2P1 CMOS image sensor.

#3 - Next correction I believe will be in the Radio, some of the main issues we have debated in this thread is the idea of multiple phones going to different carriers and how that would impact the phones specs because of case size (thinness) I believe they will use the same case the larger SCH- i515 case and use its depth to include a LTE + Dual CDMA/GSM system so they only have to create one phone for the US markets and another for the global markets.

#4 - The last correction is going to be the Battery, I am not sure on this one but have two theories, either the Nexus will have a 2050mAh replaceable battery like we are are used to or there might be a chance that this device may go the route of the iphone and have a closed battery system and will need to be serviced for replacement if needed to save space within the case for the dual radios.

One last bit of information I used to base my logic from...Samsung released the Galaxy S ll on the other carriers and for the specs to be anything close to those of that phone would not make any sense. But Samsung also announced the specs of the Samsung Galaxy S ll LTE HD for the Asian markets for Nov. of 2011, those specs I mentioned have all been rumored to be used in that phone and in fact that phone has the HD screen that nobody rejects will be in the Nexus device. I contend that the LTE HD phone announced for Asia is in fact the basis for the Nexus device.

Anything less than those specs found for the Samsung Galaxy S ll LTE HD device would be a step backwards for Samsung and Googles Nexus device.

So I believe the following will be the core specs for the Nexus ...
Quote:
Procesor: Exynos 4212 clocked at 1.5GHz that includes the PowerVR SGX543MP2 GPU
Screen Size/Resolution:4.65-inch 1280 x 720-pixel Super AMOLED HD with curved glass

NFC
Battery:2050mAh
WiFi: a/b/g/n
Storage: 32 gb on board(no comfirmation on micro sd slot)
Again I own my opinion and will look back to this post to determine how close or far off I was once the announcement and specs are released by Samsung and Verizon when that time comes.

You're right. I admit my mistake. I'm sorry.

My frustration is that this thread was getting too much off topic. Let's stay on or close.

Slashgear and some other blogs are all saying the same thing. "They wouldn't be surprised to see the 4212 show up in the Nexus"

Nuff said

not to regress or anything but how are they going to fit the LTE radio and a 2050 mah battery in the prime...it's too small @ 8.8 mm.

EDIT: maybe it's possible since the phone does seem to taper off towards the end...

That's a little bit too logical for Verizon. Here's hoping you're right.

Oh, and FWIW, my sister got off work and called me from her non-work cell. She told me that she can't text me anymore from work about anything phone-related. People over there are a little scared of getting in trouble. She told me that there was someone in a high position at Corporate who got fired! No one knows the exact reason, but they suspect it was for leaking info.

So I think that well has dried up, not that it was very full to begin with.

Steven and I are much alike personally and are actively skyping real-time on our actions here.

We're ok with the original ground rules - but when the noise far outnumbered the signal in posts, then the contract was broken, honestly.

And what you aren't seeing is the management performed already.

When posts flood in, no one reads anything except the last off-topic post and respond to that, in leap-frog manner, the whole thread was getting hijacked.

It was getting out of hand.

That helps no one.

People pull back from extremes, we will too - but first, let's just please get back on track.

Key phrase in my post - Cheers, thanks for working with us on this!

For things like this, the FCC transactions are sealed during review and for an agreed-upon time after, due to competitive issues over international trade.

That's why we rely on leaks.

Even then, only in rare cases do leaks get out of hand. I had the schematics for the Evo 3D well before the phone hit shelves, something that was supposed to remain confidential for some time for obvious reasons.

So I did some poking.

Samsung says the 4212 GPU (unnamed) is 50% faster than the 4210.

The ARM Mali 400MP in the 4210 SoC is rated at 30m triangles/second.

The PowerVR SGX543MP2 is rated at 35m triangles/second.

Maybe it is another metric they are using...but the specifications there don't quite match...

1. GPU performance is not only triangles/second
2. GSMarena mentions only a Dual-Core GPU by imagination... they suggested the PowerVr SGX543MP2...

quote:

"On that chipset will also reside a powerful dual-core GPU from Imagination. We suspect it's going to be the PowerVR SGX543MP2, or in other words, the same GPU found in the iPad 2 (and quite probably on the iPhone 4S as well)."

well i think it's gonna be the PowerVr SGX544Mp2, which is slightely faster and newer than the apple A5...

So, are there any events coming up from anyone that could present a decent stage for an announcement? Anything coming up for Google, Samsung, or Verizon?

In all the technical frenzy we tend to get into, it's sometimes the simple things we miss. Since I can't talk chips, I'll mention something far more practical.

Does the darn thing have external volume controls? If Samsung is willing to potentially leave off "essentials" like a micro-sd slot and notify LED, perhaps no volume either. I hope not because that would bug me.

If they do have volume buttons, I hope they put them on the same side as the headphone jack. My DX has the jack on the opposite side and it's a pain to change the volume between songs when it's in a belt case. You have to take the whole phone out to get at the volume.

I hope Samsung thought this one out.

Just when i thought i knew everything and had a date set for me to wrap my head around all the rumors floating around (was away from technology for a few days), everything gets delayed just like that overnight.

O well. Glad i got to see the phone and ICS though in that video.

Loving the ongoing processor debate though~ lol

I keep thinking about them cancelling the reveal on the 11th and I can't stop thinking of them saying "you know we really shouldn't drop this thing right now. Its just not right."

They must be holding onto some serious hardware to feel bad about unveiling it during this time of Mr Jobs death. I mean that's a HUGE decision and this reveal may be so newsworthy in the tech world that its in bad taste.

You know they were going to try and drop kick the iPhone out of the news and came prepared in full battle dress. For human emotion to shape a corporate decision this phone must be truly epic and in bad taste to release now. That's pretty heavy if you think about it.

This was EXACTLY my thought this morning. They didn't want drop kick apple a week after Mr. Job's demise. It's bad form, bad karma, bad deed, sin or whatever you want to call it.

This phone's gonna be a game changer. I LOVE THIS thread (like I loved the Incredible thread of yore.)

I really hope this phone is worth the wait. And based upon what I've read about the Nexus S, it sounds like HDMI out is unlikely. Which SUX. Straight up. If I'm going to move to Android, I want HDMI out, and the ability to send a text message from any app. Similar to what a jailbroken iPhone has (QuickSend). It's an amazing feature, and every search I do on the subject has all Android users asking "what does it do?" It's amazing that they don't know more about the competition. QuickSend is something that Android needs. Game changer.

Have there been other Android phones w/o volume controls? I think they'd be making a big mistake if they did. I wouldn't want to be on a phone call and have to hunt for soft volume controls.

At least some of the SGS2 versions do have the LED, so it's not impossible that Prime for VZW will. The videos and photos floating around may not show one, but I don't really trust them anyway. Also as far as I know the only reason for the missing micro-sd slot rumor is that it wasn't listed in leaked specs -- which really doesn't prove anything.

No idea, but the presence of a docking connector might(?) influence the position of other controls and connectors.

At this point, the worst we can do for the main specs is still rather amazing.

So I'm going to hit on a few points (again).

ICS hopefully brings about a much more solid:

Keyboard. Gingerbread's keyboard was a step in the right direction. Now hit it out of the park. I expect nothing less than amazing.

Messaging app. Something like handcent/gosms/ect. only integrated into the experience much better.

Phone app. Sorry, but dialer one just straight up blows android's phone out of the water.

A BBM/WhatsApp-esque service. Perhaps through google+, but it *has* to be non-clunky. No having to set up an entire G+ account and only being able to add people who have G+ accounts. Should be as simple as BBM where everybody with an android phone has the service automatically.

There's quite a bit more I have, but these are just the few I felt needed to be said right now. (wasting time 'till launch haha)

Exactly.

But you know what, I think I reserve the right to say it actually shouldn't matter. With all due respect; I don't believe the world should stop spinning because of this..

Anyways.

I'm excited about the next leak (hopefully another video). I wish the guy in today's leaked video would have shown the back of the phone.

Android Police just dropped Google+ from ICS to add to the already released music. We might be running ICS before the Prime arrives

Default Sim card?

Hey after looking at a screenshot it says no sim card... Doesn't GSM phones use sim cards? not CDMA? I haven't worked with world phones or GSM phones but don't they use sim and, but Verizon doesn't use Sim right? Does that make any sense? I know very little about networks pretty obvious with this post...

-Google Talk. You can IM with anyone on an Android phone and on a computer (if they're logged in to gmail) I'm almost off text messaging because most ppl I know are on Talk.

When I do text though, I use Google Voice, which I do hope is improved and is integrated more into the phone.

There was a great anticipation for an HTC Thunderbolt release date announcement - and then things got quiet until the iP4 was out on Verizon. People were upset, the sources of good rumors (yeah - I did it) mostly dried up.

There is a great anticipation for a Prime release date announcement - and the iP4S has been announced.

And - Samsung is now seeking an injunction to block the iP4S from release in France and Italy over claims that Apple is violating two of their WCDMA patents.

So - I don't about it being or not being a gesture of respect over Steve's unfortunate demise.

But - the patterns are starting to take an interesting form.

Maybe I missed something but what makes you guys so sure that Prime is Verizon exclusive? And if it is exclusive what's the usual time period until it comes to AT&T?

I have a question I hope one of you can answer. It seemslike everybody in here has Verizon? The two of us with Sprint are here too. The Iphone 4S is a world phone with GSM/CDMA radio but no LTE OR WIMAX does that mean if the rumors are true the phone has some sort of combo radio does it mean us two People with Sprint will not have WIMAX OR ANY 4G?

I hope this is on topic and gives you chip guys something good good to talk about and gets Sprint people into the discussion.

Well - if we're talking Nexus, the S has a special version for Sprint using WiMAX/4G - so if this is a Nexus Prime, no reason it couldn't get similar treatment.

Then again - we have Sprint saber-rattling again about going to LTE, or least the press is saying it.

And if you're referring specifically to the iP4S, nothing was said in the launch announcement about any advanced radio beyond a straight one-model world capability.

AnandTech - Apple iPhone 4S includes HSPA+ 14.4, GSM/CDMA Dual Mode, Diversity

The iP4 already comes in two flavors, CDMA and GSM - I think Apple would rather just price and market it with both radios and have one version.

Unlike Android, where we get lots of hardware variations.

Prime = custom, the Android way

iP4s = one size fits all, the Apple way

In my opinion.

Ok, the flood of off-topic posts has died down and the thread is now clearly back on track.

So, many thanks from Steven and I on this, so now, let's go back to the original rules.

Please stay mostly on-topic, side chatter ok within polite reason.

Thanks for working with us on this!

assuming the video is the Prime I dont understand what has been
touted as no hard buttons or capacitance buttons due to ICS.I see how the
5 icons along bottom disappear - would that compare to the
launcher on my Incredible? Those disappear when an app or video is launched.
What are the "buttons" along the bottom? are those capacitance?
They seem to be permanent and a non usable area. Sorry if I got terminology
wrong, I was just thinking this device was basically all screen (which
would cut down on overall size)

Thank You for your answer. That was my concern none of the leaks mention any kind of WiMAX 4G. Only mention of it ever was the poem from Black_man_x. I am tired of my Evo 3D I have to sit next to power supply. I am one buy it now away from buying a Nexus S. I'm waiting to see if I can get Nexus Prime instead. The delay and all the rumors are killing Me!! Will it be on Sprint in November?

The buttons at the bottom (back, home, menu) in the video of ICS are on screen and not capacitive. Which means they can go away and be used for screen real estate when watching videos then brought back up on demand? Not sure how yet lol

Hi All, been away for awhile and finally decided to put in my 2 cents. I'll be crazy and try to apply a bit of logic.

1. Many people on these forums believe that BMX, tfleming, P3 and britishturbo (you know who I mean) to be among the most reliable sources. vz_wired, for whatever reason is becoming this way - whether it's logical or not.

2. BGR has proven himself over and over again to be a largely unreliable source for quite some time.

3. Samsung has indicated that something BIG was headed our way.

4. Samsung has nominated a gaming unit - as yet unidentified - for the CTIA awards.

5. Virtually everyone in the world believes the Prime to be a game changing device.

6. So, here's the tie in: If we think BMX, britishturbo, P3, vz_wired to be reliable sources, and most of us do I think, then I'd draw this conclusion:

THE GSM SPECS ARE LIKELY ON POINT.

Why? Because BGR (and then everyone else) published specs that appeared to contradict all the above logic. Most of us think P3 leaked the info to BGR, so is P3 wrong or is it possible that he's screwing with BGR to make him look worse? What if P3, who looks very much in concert with BMX, britishturbo and others - at least on Twitter, did it as a red herring?

Let's face it, everything points to a 1.5 Ghz processor, an 8 MP camera, and the other big specs. Vz_wired disagreed with BGR's specs, britishturbo disagreed with those specs, BMX didn't agree or disagree with the specs but commented essentially that it was quite a surprise (sarcastic) that BGR screwed up the specs ON THE GOOGLE + PAGE FOR britishturbo, etc. They have all said that we'll be very happy with the outcome, so I have no reason not to believe that they've held the device and know what it contains.

Couple all of this with the upcoming release of the SGS II HD LTE in Korea and I frankly think it's highly illogical to believe the NP will launch with anything but equal specs, and likely better specs than it. Will it be an Exynos? God I hope so, but I think it's 50/50...I'll ask a basic question that's been on my mind for quite a while:

If Samsung has been developing the 4212 for months and they've been in communication with Google re: NP for months, is it not possible that they decided awhile back to use the 4212? Why is it impossible that they've thoroughly tested it in house and it's ready for internal distribution? All the speculation about 2012 is predicated on SAMSUNG'S STATEMENT. Isn't it at least possible that they've kept it under wraps, not unlike the information or disinformation about the Nexus Prime? I'm not saying it's a done deal, but it seems plausible that Samsung announces the device is "out for testing" to the world, but knows that most of it is already done in house...Someone tell me why that's not possible. Until then, I'm hanging on the specs provided by britishturbo, including the 1.5 Exynos!

Thanks and sorry for the novel...Hook 'Em!
