First image of the Samsung Nexus Prime surfaces

The Samsung Nexus Prime appears to be a phantom of sorts. Previously, there were just rumoured specifications as to what the flagship handset from Google would possess from an anonymous 4Chan member. This has changed slightly with GSMArena acquiring a leaked image of the Nexus Prime, which is set to be unveiled next week at the Samsung Unpacked event.
