The first Ice Cream Sandwich Android 4.0 Android Phone is here
Today Samsung Electronics and Google announced GALAXY Nexus in Hong Kong, the world’s first smartphone running Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich, the latest release of the Android platform. GALAXY Nexus features a 4.65-inch HD Super AMOLED display technology at 720p resolution and a 1.2GHz dual core processor. The GALAXY Nexus is the first smartphone to feature a 4.65-inch display with a resolution of 720p (1280×720px).
Succeeding the original Contour Display of Nexus S, GALAXY Nexus comes with a rounded shape that fits within your palm or to your face for phone calling. Hyper-skin backing on the battery cover improves the ergonomic feel of the device and makes the phone slip-resistant. At just 8.94mm thick, with a minimal 4.29mm bezel, GALAXY Nexus provides still portability alongside an expansive screen.
Other features of the GALAXY Nexus include 4G LTE, 5MP Camera (why not 8MP?), 1GB RAM, 16GB/32GB Storage, and a 1,750mAh battery. Measurements of the GALAXY Nexus are 135.5x67.94x8.94mm and the weight is 135g.
The Samsung GALAXY Nexus will be available in the U.S., Europe, and Asia beginning in November and gradually rolled out to other global markets.
