With excessive publicity and ensuing commotion of the iPhone 4S dying out and the realization there is no iPhone 5, Samsung has the chance to capitalize on the Apple ennui with its upcoming Nexus Prime.

The phone is said to have a 4.65-inch curved glass screen with 720p resolution. The curved glass supports a greater degree of privacy when looking at the screen. Other impressive features are 1GB of RAM and the TI OMAP 4460 dual-core Cortex A9 processor clocked at 1.2GHz. It also provides 32GB of built-in storage. It will be possessing 5-megapixel rear-facing camera, 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera. The videos can be recorded in 1080 HD. The phone will also be LTE/HSPA 4G enabled and feature Near Field Communication (NFC) technology.

Samsung Nexus Prime might acquire more market share from Apple. A recent analysis says Apple has 27.3 of the smart phone market. Google has captured 43.7 percent of the market since its Android OS is available on a much wider array of smartphones.

Much hyped “Let’s talk iPhone” ended in the disappointment, Apple dropped the unveiling of the iPhone 5. Instead of iPhone 5, Apple announced iPhone 4S.

The screen of Nexus Prime is comparatively a full inch bigger than the 4S’s 3.5-inch screen. When tech reporters hoped the release of the iPhone 5, 4G and Near Field Communication also showed up on a lot of wishlists.

The announcement of the phone was to be on Oct. 11, but it is said that Samsung has postponed the announcement at CTIA Fall. New date and venue will be shortly announced,” the companies announced, according to Engadget. Engadget also says that the announcement is postponed as the way to pay due respect to the death of  Steve Jobs.
