Details Of Samsung Galaxy Nexus Unveiled

The main specifications of the Samsung Galaxy Nexus have been revealed by US tech news website days after the release of the iPhone 4S.

According to the site the phone, which will be called the Nexus Prime, is set to be released next month and will come with Android Ice Cream Sandwich (otherwise known as Android 4.0 and one of its USP will be its ability to monitor the data usage for each app), it will be a mere 9mm thin and have a 4.65-inch 1280x720 pixel Super AMOLED HD screen with curved glass.

BGR didn't say whether the display will be covered with Corning's Gorilla Glass and it seems that the new handset will have a quasi-retina display pixel density.

The rest of the specification reads as follows: a TI OMAP 4460 SoC (dual Cortex A9 clocked at 1.2GHz), 1GB RAM, 32GB built-in storage, a five megapixel camera (full HD video capture) with a 1.3-megapixel front facing camera, NFC, a 1750mAh battery, Wi-Fi and we suspect Bluetooth 3.0 (rather than 4.0).

The site also confirmed that the phone will be a "Google Experience phone" which means that there won't be any third party user interface or other extra modifications. It is likely that the phone will be available exclusively on Verizon Wireless in the US.

Desire worked at ITProPortal right at the beginning and was instrumental in turning it into the leading publication we all know and love today. He then moved on to be the Editor of TechRadarPro - a position he still holds - and has recently been reunited with ITProPortal since Future Publishing's acquisition of Net Communities.
