Samsung Galaxy Nexus official: Available this November in US, Europe, and Asia

It’s official, folks. The Samsung Galaxy Nexus has been unveiled to the world and while we pretty much knew almost everything there was to know about it, we’re still excited. The Galaxy Nexus is the first handset to launch with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and packs a mouth-watering specs-sheet.

The expected 4.65 inch Super AMOLED display at resolution is finally confirmed, along with a 1.2GHz dual-core TI OMAP 4460 processor, 1GB of RAM, and 5 megapixel camera. The camera may sound like a disappointment to some but it’s said that there will be no shutter lag what so ever. We’ll certainly have to put that to the test when we get one in our hands.

You can also expect that sexy curved display, 16/32 GB internal storage, and NFC on the Galaxy Nexus, which should please some soon to be Google Wallet users.

Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich will bridge Android phones and tablet together, making the OS significantly less fragmented going forward. That said, we still wondering if Google has implemented some sort of solution for updating Android devices with custom skins on them. Still, Ice Cream Sandwich is a large, large leap in the right direction, as it features many Android 3.0 Honeycomb elements throughout, making way for an overall cleaner and more polished experience.

Like Honeycomb, Ice Cream Sandwich eliminates the need for physical buttons, so we’ll likely begin to see newer Android devices ship without them but existing handsets will not need to worry, as they will still work if you have them.

You can expect to see the Galaxy Nexus to land sometime in November in the US, Europe, and Asia. Now we play the waiting game. Again.

Stay tuned for more information the Galaxy Nexus!

    damn!!! im irritated as hell. Galaxy Nexus is mediocre at best, the GSII is faster, more megapixels, better screen resolution, minus the ICS. but im sure GSII will recieve an update. i just dont understand what the hell samsung was thinking?

      How is the GSII faster? The Galaxy Nexus has a significantly higher resolution than Galaxy S II.. And megapixels aren’t everything that you should consider when talking camera quality..

    The new Galaxy Nexus has a resolution of 1280×720 which is incredibly awesome, and plus it’s a super AMO LED Screen.
