While leaks are great, and the rumor mill is a fantastic way to talk about when a phone is coming, what kind of specs it will have, and which carriers it will launch for, there’s just something about a manufacturer’s higher-ups divulging information. Especially when we’re so close to an announcement (at least we think). And that’s where Samsung UK comes in.
Over at CTIA right now, T3 is having their Gadget Awards, and Samsung just took the trophy for the Phone of the Year Award. And while Andrew Glass was up on stage accepting it, he let this out:
“You will have an announcement of the Nexus Prime very shortly and will be seeing it in shops sooner than you think.”
Now, while this is great news in and of itself, there’s still no date here. But, “very soon” and “sooner than you think” are some pretty exciting phrases for anyone who is excited to get their hands on this device. And, perhaps just as noteworthy, is the fact that he called it the Nexus Prime. That sounds like it will be the unlocked version of the device to us, with other names coming to market when necessary (like Verizon’s DROID Prime). But, we’ll have to wait and see.
