The first purported image of the upcoming Nexus Prime smartphone has been published by, possibly giving the world its first glimpse at Google’s next flagship Android handset. The image doesn’t reveal much, though it does show a sleek contour and it seemingly reaffirms the presence of a 720p Super AMOLED HD display. BGR reported exclusive preliminary details on the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich-powered Prime back in June, and we followed up with additional details later that month. In late August, we reported that Verizon Wireless would launch the phone this month as the DROID Prime, helping to explain why the carrier passed on Samsung’s wildly popular Galaxy S II smartphone. Samsung and Google are expected to unveil the device at a press conference next week, where BGR will be reporting live.
