You forgot to mention LTE support on both phones
I guess we know what the Nexus Prime is going to be touting when it gets released

Surprisingly, HD version is slightly narrower than the regular version

Was hoping for a better SoC and it seems that Samsung is still stuck using pentile sub matrixes at that resolution so sharpness-wise it won't be much better than the SGS II.

Guess we'll see another iteration of this phone, aka Nexus Prime, come October 4th.

without having seen the screen i wouldn't make that statement. Also everyone that has seen the Galaxy Note has commented on how sharp the screen is and this is supporting the same res but in a much more compact screen size

While that is true, I have serious doubts concerning anything pentile after having used the Samsung Galaxy S.

Hmm could this new beast be carrying one of TI's newer 4470s with an SGX544?

96k pixels/inch (SAMOLED Galaxy S) vs 198k pixles/inch (SAMOLED HD Galaxy S2 HD)

It's a pretty substantial jump in pixel density

"The screen merits a deeper examination, but here are the first impressions we got from it. First off, having a 5.3" SuperAMOLED is pretty cool. Graphics are smooth and you have to look close to see the PenTile matrix."

Still noticeable and the display appears to be dimmer than that of the SGS2.

Hasn't this thing been reported to use an MSM8660? That kinda kills it for me.
Not talking performance or anything, there's just something about Qualcomm's chips that make me dislike them.

In the GSMarena article they said it was a prototype regarding the screen brightness issue - and by all the newer (last few days with the actual release) accounts, it's actually incredibly bright.

As for the PenTile thing, Phonearena also said it's not visible to the naked eye. The key here is: look at it for yourself, in person before deciding if it's visible.

you don't need English to know what this means



quite clearly shows HD uses 1280x720 resolution instead of normal 800x480
