Samsung Galaxy Nexus CPU
The new device has a dual-core 1.2GHz Texus Instruments OMAP4460 processor, with the same speed as the one used in Samsung’s Galaxy S II. In fact, a lot of the Nexus Prime’s core specs copy that of Samsung’s existing top end Android smartphone.
Galaxy Nexus OS
The Galaxy Nexus is the first smartphone to feature Android 4.0, or Ice Cream Sandwich. The OS will be available to other high end Android devices including the Nexus S. Ice Cream Sandwich is configured to bridge the gap between the user experience on Android 2.x phones and Android 3.0 Honeycomb tablets – the same OS will run on both types of hardware.
Galaxy Nexus memory
Just as the Galaxy S2, there will be 1GB of system memory available onboard. That means double memory as an iPhone 4S.
Galaxy Nexus display
The big 4.65-inch Super AMOLED screen with 720p resolution. It’s bigger than the 4.27-inch display available on the Galaxy S2 but just smaller enough than the crazy 5.3-inch display found on the Samsung Galaxy Note.
Galaxy Nexus dimensions and weight
The smartphone has a similar form factor to its predecessor, the Samsung Nexus S, but it just got thinner with only 8.94mm thick and weighing not more than 135 g. The footprint? 36 x 68mm.
Galaxy Nexus Design
The design follows the previous Nexus S and Samsung Galaxy S2 with the lip at the bottom of the phone.
A button-less display may be confusing sometimes while searching to press the Home key to get back to the main menu, but Google wanted a slick design with edge-to-edge front to the phone.
Galaxy Nexus camera and video
The Galaxy Nexus can record 1080p video, exactly like the iPhone 4S and Galaxy S2, and comes with a 5-megapixel rear camera with integrated LED flash. The front-facing cam is 1.3-megapixel. There’s also a panorama mode plus, according to Samsung, with no lag to the shutter .
Galaxy Nexus mobile payments
As we thought, NFC technology was inherited from the Nexus S – though the tech is still slow to roll-out across other devices.
Galaxy Nexus connectivity and sensors
The smartphone also comes with Bluetooth 3.0, 802.11n Wi-Fi and HSPA+ (enabling download speeds of up to 21Mbps) on 4G networks, rolling out in the US for the time. The phone is equiped with a proximity sensor as you’d expect and, strangely enough, a barometer.
Galaxy Nexus storage
The device will be available in two versions – 16GB or 32GB of internal storage
Galaxy Nexus battery
The handset comes with a 1,750 mAh battery – way better than the 1,420 mAh unit in the iPhone 4S.
