We haven’t had any shortage of rumors about the Nexus Prime and ICS over the past few days. We have already seen a leaked video of ICS, leaked ICS versions of Google+, and Google Music (which is available for download). The most recent bit of news comes from a rather reliable source, one you can definitely trust, the FCC.
It is said that Verizon will be the first carrier to receive the new Nexus device and will be known as the Droid Prime or Nexus Prime (SCH 15-15) which we have yet to see an FCC filing for. The Device that passed through the FCC late Friday night, The GT-i9250, thought to be the Galaxy Nexus, offers support for bands that work on AT&T and T-Mobile’s 3G networks. The document makes no mention of LTE or CDMA support.
The FCC documents confirm that this version of the phone will feature dual-band Wireless-N, Bluetooth, as well as NFC. Test reports show the device will measure 68mm x 124mm, about the same size as the popular Samsung Galaxy S II.
Although the official announcement for next Tuesday has been postponed, we will still be at CTIA next week for all three days crossing our fingers in hopes for a surprise appearance. For those who were hoping to see the Big Red version drop first, have faith, we will probably see that one pass through the FCC very soon. Stay tuned for further details….
