 First Nexus Prime video sighted

Hands-on footage of what appears to be the third Nexus handset has leaked online.

Posted by an anonymous user, the minute-and-a-half-long clip shows a handset that doesn’t look a mile off the Nexus S, but has some obvious differences such as ditching four touch-sensitive buttons in favour of three on-screen buttons.

It’s also powered by the upcoming Ice Cream Sandwich iteration of Android, although that doesn’t necessarily prove anything considering video of a Nexus S unit has previously cropped up running the new OS.

Although it’s really hard to tell due to the low-res quality of the video, and we’re really guessing at this point, the handset boasts a slightly flatter top and bottom edges that recall the Samsung Galaxy S2 but retains the rounded corners of its predecessor, the Nexus S.

Features mooted to be on board, according to leaks, include a 1.5GHz dual core processor with 1GB of RAM, a curved 4.65-inch Super AMOLED display with 720p resolution and an eight-megapixel camera with HD recording skills at 1080p.

Samsung was supposed to hold an event tomorrow, widely expected to unveil the Nexus Prime, but postponed the announcement until October 27th following the tragic death of Apple founder Steve Jobs last week.

"Under the current circumstances, both parties have agreed that this is not the appropriate time for the announcement of a new product. We would ask for the understanding of our clients and media for any inconvenience caused. We will announce a new date and venue in due course," Samsung revealed in a statement.
