Another Nexus Prime render leaks, but is it real? Probably not.

At this point, we’re almost certain that the Galaxy Nexus and the Nexus Prime may not be the same thing but that’s anyone’s guess at this point. A new photo of the handset has landed online and it looks pretty real but with all of the news being thrown around concerning the upcoming Nexus handset, everything is rumor until proven otherwise.

The picture shows the face of the device, along with the now familiar profile that we saw not long ago. The Samsung Unpacked video looked to embellish the curvature of the handsets but if this picture is real then we may indeed have a very curvy device on our hands. We have nothing wrong with that, by the way.

We must say that we hope no one is screwing with us because this phone looks gorgeous.  We knew the previous renders of the device were not real but this one does have us scratching our heads.

As far as specifications go, the only thing that we can really expect is a 4.65 inch display that sports a 720p resolution. Other than that, everything is up in the air. The CPU seems to range from a 1.2GHz CPU to a 1.5GHz CPU, both of which are dual-core and could either be coming from TI or Samsung’s own Exynos processor. The camera also seems to differ between a 5 megapixel camera and 8.

The specification differences certainly lends to the possibility that the Galaxy Nexus is a beefed up Galaxy S II, with the Nexus Prime sporting the higher specs that have been reported.

While we’d love to continue to speculate about the upcoming handset but we’re only a couple of days away from the official announcement from Samsung and Google. We’ll be there live, so be sure to stay tuned.

So what do you think? Real or fake? We want to it be real but we’re pretty certain that this fakery. Yes, fakery.

    As someone else pointed out, Ice Cream Sandwich is supposed to nuke the off-screen buttons in favor of an entirely screen-based experience. Fake.

      While I agree that it’s fake, it’s not because of the buttons. The buttons are actually on screen, as you can see a similar layout on the actual picture of the device that leaked a few days ago that showed the real screen resolution.
