Samsung today officially announced the specifications for the newest member of the Nexus family - Galaxy Nexus. The announcement closely matches what we've been anticipating for some time now, including a TI OMAP 4460 SoC at 1.2 GHz, 720p Super AMOLED HD display, HSPA+ or optional LTE connectivity and a few other things. We've put together a table with the specs handed out by Samsung at the event.

Battery 1750 mAh Li-Ion
Network Support HSPA+ 21.1 850/900/1900/1700/2100

Connectivity 802.11n a/b/g/n (2.4/5 GHz), BT 3.0, NFC, USB 2.0

The profile of the Galaxy Nexus matches the teaser photos that Samsung has been pushing out, including a thin curved profile with a thickness of 8.94 mm at the thinnest point. Samsung also stressed that although the display size has increased, the phone hasn't gained much in terms of outline thanks to a reduced bezel size of just 4.29 mm on the left and right. Of course, the device will be host to the newest verison of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich when it launches.

Samsung has announced that the Galaxy Nexus will be available sometime in November, and we look forward to getting some hands on time with the device and giving it a full review.

    It should be pointed out that a the subpixel density of the Droid Charge is actually higher than the Droid Prime (648subpixels per inch vs 640 subpixels per inch)
    Also, because of the nature of how pentile displays render blue and red, certain images will result in a reduced clarity over RGB. Text may appear as sharp, however. The advantage of the Droid Prime is that it has a larger screen and thus can be held further away.
    Withholding judgement until I actually compare the Prime to the Charge, I expect the Droid to have a better overall display.
    I figure its only a matter of time before SAMOLED+ HD, anybody have any insights?

    eek, need edit, I expect the *Droid Charge* to have a better overall display...

    Roughly 22 fps with Egypt and that is not even that new of a game. The SGX540 is way under spec for a 720p screen. Simply put this thing will not be able to play modern games.

    Especially for the price.

    Anyone know how much of Ice Cream Sandwich is GPU-assisted (if at all)?
  • cherrybombaz - Tuesday, October 18, 2011 - link

    It says in the SDK "Beginning with Android 4.0, hardware acceleration for all windows is enabled by default".

    But honestly, the GPU is such a disappointment.

    I could care less?

    I don't buy smartphones to play crappy mobile games that pale in comparison to even consoles let alone PCs. The only thing I care about is if it runs the OS and built in functions/apps well, and judging from the stream it most certainly does. :D

    Well, personal usage scenarios will obviously vary, but a GPU accelerated GUI is always a good thing.

    Personally, I fancy some emulation, so a decent GPU would be awesome. Plus, the Galaxy S line tends to be real easy to ROM and what not, which is definitely something I am interested in (running the SpeedMod kernel and Darkys ROM final on my SGS currently).

    Then you don't need a current generation phone. Get a Samsung Galaxy S or an iPhone 4.

    If the Galaxy Nexus does indeed use the SGX540 then that would be very disappointing. That's the same GPU that was used on the original Galaxy S!

    However, they haven't confirmed the GPU on the Galaxy Nexus yet. They actually didn't talk about it at all last night.
