The wait is finally over, Google and Samsung execs just got off stage in Hong Kong where they unveiled the Galaxy Nexus alongside Android 4.0, a.k.a Ice Cream Sandwich. We’ll be bringing you a closer look at Ice Cream Sandwich shortly, but until then, here’s what you need to know about the Galaxy Nexus.
Sporting a slightly curved designed as hinted in teaser videos leading up to the event, the Nexus will feature a 4.65-inch 1280 x 720 Super AMOLED display, 5-megapixel rear camera, 1 GB of RAM, 1.2GHz dual-core processor, built-in NFC and 4G LTE capabilities, 1.3 front-facing cam, 16 or 32GB of storage, 1750mAh battery, barometer, and the majority of other goodies you’ve come to expect.
When it comes to the physical design of the device, there aren’t many huge surprises. It pretty much just looks like your average high-end Android device, although it’s really hard to tell before getting your hands on one. UberGizmo reports the HSPA+ model will be 8.94mm thick with a 4.29mm bezel (the LTE version could be slightly thicker). The Verge has already gone hands on with the device in the video below (looks pretty huge in the hand):
There is no mention of what carrier the device will land on in the U.S., although we already know MTT DoCoMo will be offering it sometime in November to the Japanese market. However, when it comes to an LTE Galaxy Nexus, Verizon is obviously the likely ideal partner. You can check out the official ad below or swing by the official page Google just put up.
UPDATE: According to Mashable, it looks like Android Ice Cream Sandwich features integration with Google+. Check out their live blog for all of the latest updates about the OS.
