So we are finally done with iPhone 4S and now let’s have a look to the other side of the smartphone world. Last week we saw a teaser trailer which said ‘Something big is coming’. I thought it is pointing towards the next Nexus phone about which I updated on my wall. Yes, the next Nexus phone called ‘Galaxy Nexus’ codenamed as ‘Nexus Prime’ will be floating soon.
Recently hardware specifications of the upcoming Galaxy Nexus were leaked which says the phone will be out of this world. Samsung and Google together will be bringing such a phone that will not only kill iPhone 4S but also Samsung’s own Galaxy S II.
Samsung Galaxy Nexus Prime Tech Specs
- TI OMAP 4460 1.2GHz dual-core Cortex A9 CPU
- 1GB of RAM
- 32GB of built-in storage
- 4.65-inch curved glass screen
- 1280 x 720-pixel Super AMOLED HD
- 5-megapixel rear camera
- 1.3-megapixel front camera
- 4G LTE/HSPA
- Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich
This is stunning new Samsung Galaxy Nexus, these specs can easily overkill iPhone 4S. Still complete idea regarding the CPU clocks is not available as different trusted website stats different clocks.
Galaxy Nexus’s dual core CPU clocked at 1.2GHz/1.5GHz and along side with 1GB RAM will make the device fly as it will be providing best possible speed and multi-tasking for the running applications. Along with this the screen’s stock resolution is 1280 x 720, that’s epic. Even my 17inch desktop monitor runs on the same resolution and this time Samsung has ported the same semi HD or HD Ready resolution on such a small device, this will not only increase the pixel density but will make every pixel alive. Well, this will surely bring loads on the CPU but since the phone has very good hardware the TI OMAP can easily handle it.
Along with this the display panel will be none other that Samsung’s own Super AMOLED, this is one of the best panel ever made and I personally love it. It will make this 4.65 inch display look even more richer. From the teaser it can be confirmed that this phone will be having curved screen which I was expecting in next generation iPhone. This is one of the extra-ordinary concept which will be first implemented on Galaxy Nexus Prime.
Galaxy Nexus Prime will be coming with inbuilt 32GB storage capacity without microSD card slot for memory expansion. And it seems this is the only variant available. It is noted that the rear camera is 5mp (What?) but still other leaks says its 8mp and supporting 1080p video recording. 5mp was last year’s king and it’s 8mp which is known for today. A device being made much powerful than the iPhone 4S wont end up getting the same old 5mp camera sensor. The front camera is however 1.3mp and obviously for video calling.
Like the others in United States, Galaxy Nexus will be getting 4G LTE network support which will be dependent on serivce provider. News says, Verizon Wireless will be getting Samsung Galaxy Nexus.
Lastly the Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) Google’s all new updated Android. An operating system specially designed to support high end hardware, more resolution and give better experience. Ice Cream Sandwich will be coming along with the Galaxy Nexus, let’s see what’s packed in the box.
Earlier Galaxy Nexus was supposed to be announced this week, but due to really sad sad demise of technology Galaxy Nexus is pushed away. The actual dates will be announced later on.
