Google+Samsung Galaxy Nexus becomes official!

So it’s finally out and official — the Samsung Galaxy Nexus has been revealed and it’s powered by Samsung. The Galaxy Nexus is also the first handset to run Google’s Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.

Google/Samsung Galaxy Nexus specs:
4.65″ HD Super AMOLED screen @ 1280×720 (315 ppi)
TI OMAP 4460 1.2GHz dual-core processor
PowerVR SGX540
16GB and 32GB internal storage
HSPA+ 21Mbps, HSUPA 5.76Mbps
WiFi 802.11 b/g/n
Bluetooth 3.0
5MP autofocus camera w/ LED flash
1.3MP front-facing camera
1080p video recording at 30fps
1750mAh Li-Ion battery
Google Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich

It’s not as thin as the Galaxy S2 but very close to it at 8.94mm. Most probably, the HSPA+ variant will arrive in the Philippines instead of the LTE one since our telcos aren’t ready yet to roll out the latter to the public.

The Galaxy Nexus will first be released in Europe, US and Asia this November followed by a global release in the following months. We don’t have any idea on the price though but we’ll update once we get additional details.

    The new UI of Ice Cream Sandwich is very coool.

  7. Please, Abe/Yuga, need your advise here!

    Anyone can give advise too, but please NO FANBOYISM here:

    Which one is a better choice? Samsung Galaxy S2 or HTC Sensation XE?
    Considering the following aspects: (in order of importance)
    1. User-interface – Fresh, lively, presentable, unique, user-friendly, not complex and boring
    2. Future-proof: can be upgraded to Ice Cream Sandwich and beyond and support present & future upgrades like 4G, LTE etc…
    3. Speed: fast internet browsing
    4. Camera/Video: can take high quality pictures and videos in any condition
    5. Hardware/software issues: minimal to zero issues
    6. Wow-factor: very pleasing to the eye, demands attention and awe, unique but classy
    7. Battery life
    8. High-quality sounds
    9. Built: solid-feel, not too light, easy-grip, toughness, more resistant to scratches and dents
    10. Customization
    11. Apps: which smartphone supports apps better (not in quantity but in quality)
    12. Resale value:
    13. Brand equity

    I did not include price and other aspects coz the factors mentioned above are far more important to me (and the price difference is not that high).

    Please choose between the two only, no stupid answers like “iPhone 4S!” or “Galaxy Nexus!” or “Droid Bionic!”

    SALAMAT po!
