Samsung Google Nexus Prime pops up on pre-order in Singapore

The official reveal for the Nexus Prime might not have happened as planned, but that hasn’t stopped the still-to-be-announced Ice Cream Sandwich phone popping up on a Singaporean e-tailer’s site.

SGBEST has set up what looks to be a holding page for the Nexus Prime ahead of announcement; there’s a page with a rather blank spec list along with three views of the phone from the front back and side. Well, kind of.

Thing is, the images all appear to have been cropped from various leaked pictures and videos of the phone which we’ve seen already. The back shot here also looks an awful look like a Nexus S.

Right now, there’s a dearth of information on the page, but Phone Arena, where we first saw this, has managed to grab a screenshot from when it was still populated with delicious spec.

Can you say high resolution?

The listing appears to confirm much of what we’ve heard about the Prime on the rumour-vine, that the screen will measure 4.65-inches across, have a display res of 1280 x 720 (720p) and an eye-melting PPI count of 316.

The battery apparently weighs in at 2050 mAh, a good thing as a screen of that size and pixel density is going to need some juice behind it. Phone Arena also mentions a 1.5GHz dual-core Exynos chip, so it looks like Samsung is putting its own chips into the Prime here, as it did with the S2.

Samsung has already announced the 1.5GHz Exynos 4212 which features an enhanced GPU promising “50 percent higher 3D graphics performance over the previous processor generation from Samsung.”

So yes while those images are misleading, it’s possible that this is simple a holding page (remember the Prime was meant to be announced yesterday) which has slipped through the net and gone live.

Though the 11th of October event hasn’t been rescheduled yet, we’ve heard that the Nexus Prime will be announced “sooner than you think.” The truth will out soon enough.
