Samsung Galaxy Nexus- the most ambitious smartphone- will be launched on November
- We've been speculating over Google's third Nexus smartphone, the so-called Nexus Prime/Galaxy Nexus all year long. Finally, Google and Samsung announced the Galaxy Nexus, the first LTE-enabled smartphone to feature Android 4.0- better known as Ice Cream Sandwich, out of Hong Kong on Tuesday night.
- A few of the specs listed confirm some past rumors, like a curved screen; NFC support; dual-core Texas Instruments OMAP 4460 processor running at 1.2GHz; 5-megapixel rear-facing camera with LED flash and HD video-recording.
- The Galaxy Nexus will offer a 4.65-inch Super AMOLED display with a 1280 x 720 resolution — more properly described as 720p. (Yeah, that's a big, bright screen and even though your eyeballs probably won't be able to tell the difference — it's certainly superior to the Motorola Droid RAZR's 960 x 540 qHD resolution display.) There will be a 5-megapixel camera in the rear of the device and a 1.3-megapixel camera in the front — for video calls, of course.
- In addition, the alleged spec sheet lists:
4.65-inch AMOLED screen
Dimensions of 5.4 × 2.7 × 0.45 inches (slightly thicker than the 0.36-inch iPhone 4 and 0.36-inch Nexus S)
1750 mAh battery
Micro USB 2.0
Bluetooth 3.0 + HS
CDMA, GSM, LTE, HSPA, EDGE, EV-DO
- Focusing on Ice Cream Sandwich for a tick, Android 4.0 will bring "an entirely new look and feel to Android," boasting a redesigned user interface, bolstered multitasking/notifications, full-on NFC support and a new People app, which enables users to browse friends, family and coworkers' photos whilst peeking their status updates from Google+.
