    I REALLY hope its metal instead of plastic. Plastic would be terrible.

    And was black man x being sarcastic on his last tweet? I couldn't tell. The first part sounds serious and the second part sounds sarcastic

    I asked on that chat page and they answered it. Don't know who answered it, but according to people here, it's gospel! ;)

    This wouldn't surprise me too much knowing Sammy's history. Hopefully it'll be good quality plastic.

    View this page and then click on the magnifying glass (near the top right) to bring up a Flash viewer of the whole photo.

    EDIT: Photo's been removed. Oh well.

    idk people on irc are sometimes worse than 4chan. irc lost a LOT of credibility over the years.

    It could be that Samsung is looking to take the wind out of Moto's sails and Google is trying to prove it isn't going to favor Moto. I, of course, base this on nothing but my own thoughts.

    The only thing about the new date is that it's not in the US (Hong Kong). I don't really care. Just announce it. It could be on Mars for all I care.

    Thanks. Zooming in, you can see how hairy and ape-like his hands are. Good enough for me!

    There's a lot of dorks on IRC but usually it starts out with some knowledgeable users, then gets flooded with idiots. I got on there when it was just getting started and I trust much of the info that was posted early. I would bet my bottom dollar that they did in fact get this info from a test phone. The only question is...was it the final product? Makes sense that it probably would be since otherwise there's no real reason to test in the first place. They admitted "older" firmware but unlikely that the hardware is going to magically change unless they updated the phone's internals and left them out of the loop which once again doesn't make any sense other than an intentional deception campaign which is reaching bigtime.

    Similar, but if we remember, vz_wired said there were four incorrect specs from BGR.
    Comparing this new set of specs to BGR, we find the following differences:

    1) TI OMAP4460 with dual-Cortex A9 cores clocked @ 1.5GHz (BGR claimed 1.2GHz)
    2) 2MP Front facing camera (BGR claimed 1.3MP)
    3) Rumored SAMOLED+ display (just because it's samsung, not actually confirmed) (BGR claimed regulard SAMOLED, not SAMOLED+)

    Which would leave just one more difference. My guess would be the battery (BGR claimed 1,750mAh).

    However, I'm a bit skeptical about the SAMOLED+ screen, which would then leave an additional difference...

    In case anyone cares, the photo's definitely legit, the guy who took it is a Google Product Manager, i.e. definitely an employee likely to be in a position to handle the device ;)

    Edit: Ugh, always late to the party.

    I hope this doesn't become like a love triangle. Sometime they end tragically.
