Samsung Nexus Prime model number confirmed, resolution not so clear

Samsung Nexus Prime model number confirmed, resolution not so clearAfter months of speculation, it looks like Samsung  - not HTC or LG - will develop the successor to its Google Nexus S, and a leaked XML file has given us a couple of details to mull over.

The user agent profile – or UAProf, if you prefer – is called nexusprime.xml, and includes both the model number and a slightly confusing (and hopefully inaccurate) resolution.

So, the model number first of all. The Samsung-developed Google Nexus Prime will be the GT-I9250. That ties in with the recently leaked roadmap.

The Google Nexus Prime’s resolution isn’t very clear (no pun intended). The UAProf mentions 480 x 800, which seems incredibly modest. We’d be surprised if that was the case.

Incidentally, that roadmap I mentioned suggested the GT-I9250 would have a 4.65in 1280 x 720 Super AMOLED display. Samsung told us to take the roadmap with a pinch of salt, but that certainly sounds more like it to us.

A few minutes ago I was saying that Ice Cream Sandwich will land in October or November, as revealed by Google’s Eric Schmidt, so it looks like we won’t have long to wait for the Google Nexus Prime.

Could be a placeholder or maybe the prototype only has this resolution, I guess. Would be a letdown if it did have this resolution though.

Probably worth saying that Android's UI doesn't really take full advantage of higher res screens yet. Hopefully ICS will sort that out.
