iPhone 4S Rival Alert : Phones4U Puts Samsung Galaxy Nexus On Preorder

Major UK phone retailer Phones4U has put the Samsung Galaxy Nexus on preorder on O2, Vodafone and Orange with T-Mobile and Three being the two only major providers that have yet to announce the phone.

The handset (opens in new tab) will be delivered on the 17th of November according to Phones4U, and the preorder almost guarantees that the customer will get their hands on the handset on launch day.

The Samsung Galaxy Nexus is available for free on deals starting from £41 on a two year contract. Orange gives 1200 minutes, 3000 texts and 250MB data allowance while Vodafone provides less minutes (900) but three times the amount of data allowance, and O2's offer includes only 600 minutes but 1GB data and WiFi as well.

The phone will be the first one to be released in the UK with an HD touchscreen. At 4.65 inches and with 1280x720 pixels, it is smaller than the Samsung Note but bigger than all other contemporary handsets' screens.

It comes with 16GB onboard storage, a dual core system on chip clocked at 1.2GHz, a five megapixel camera with full HD recording capabilities, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, a front facing camera, NFC, Bluetooth 3.0, Wi-Fi and what Google calls a super slim curved design.
