Google and Samsung has just announced the Galaxy Nexus (leaked as the Nexus Prime) at the Unpacked 2011 show in Hong Kong.
Android co-founder Andy Rubin, also Senior Vice President of Mobile at Google, has made the Galaxy Nexus official.
The Galaxy Nexus will be available in LTE and HSPA+ versions, depending on the model and intended market.
Technical specifications include a 4.65-inch HD (720 x 1280 pixels) resolution Super AMOLED display with 16:9 aspect ratio; a TI OMAP 4460 chipset with 1.2 GHz Cortex A9 dual-core processor, and a resolution-optimized Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
The curved display is the same contour design found on its predecessor, Nexus S, but the Galaxy Nexus will be 8.94-mm thick and have an ultra-thin 4.29-mm bezel, the thinnest at this form factor and large display.
Rubin claims that the handset will have a quicker response time of just 0.01 ms.
The back cover uses a specifically designed soft touch “Hyper Skin” for extra grip and the front now has no hardware buttons thanks to the inner Honeycomb of Ice Cream Sandwich.
The Galaxy Nexus carries a zero-shutter lag 5-megapixel still camera with support for 1080p HD video recording and video stabilization.
The Samsung Galaxy Nexus will come to the US, Europe and Asia in November.
