samsung-galaxy-nexusofficial

Samsung is set to officially unveil its new Galaxy Nexus Prime smartphone at an event in Hong Kong on Wednesday morning (Tuesday, 10pm EST). But details about the device appear to have been released early by NTT DoCoMo, a major wireless carrier in Japan.

In a tweet published earlier today, DoCoMo said, “the latest Android OS smartphone with Google and Samsung Electronics [will be] announced on October 19 in Hong Kong tomorrow. DoCoMo is almost equivalent to the fastest in the world, scheduled for release in November. More later.” (Translated from Japanese.)

The tweet included a photo of the device, along with a release date of November 20 for the Japanese market.

AndroidCentral translated a post on the site Blog of Mobile, which provides a list of hardware specs for the Galaxay Nexus Prime that match up with details leaked earlier this month. Those specs are as follows:

  • Dimensions (length x width x thickness): 136.0 × 68.0 × 8.8 fine piece – 11.5 thickest part
