But the word on the street is that the Samsung Galaxy Nexus will featuring a sophisticated 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 4.65-inch 1280 x 720 Super AMOLED HD display, NFC (Near Field Communication), 8 megapixel camera with the ability to record HD video, as well as a faster cellular connectivity.

Though not confirmed, there is speculation that the device will be compatible with both GSM and CDMA connections, just like Apple’s iPhone 4S.
