Google and Samsung have unveiled the Galaxy Nexus, Mountain View’s next flagship smartphone that will feature all the awesome additions that come with Android 4.0. Like its predecessor, the Galaxy Nexus will be 4G capable and have a slightly curved display (bumped up to a healthy 4.65 inches). The phone contains a 1.2GHz dual core CPU under the hood, and like all the other cool kids, is able to shoot 1080p video. It is unknown when ICS will be released to all Android devices, but it shouldn’t be too long after the Galaxy Nexus is available to the public.
The first smartphone to feature Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich
Ice Cream Sandwich brings an entirely new look and feel to Android. It has a redesigned user interface with improved multi-tasking, notifications, Wi-Fi hotspot, NFC support and a full web browsing experience. GALAXY Nexus features software navigation buttons, a first for Android smartphones. The lock screen, home screen, phone app, and everything in between has been rethought and redesigned to make Android simple, beautiful, and useful.
Blast on past the break for the full spec list.
