System App List for the Galaxy Nexus Leaks: No Bloatware in Sight, Lots of New Stuff

The folks over at MyDroidWorld have posted what they (and we) believe to be the system application list for the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Nexus on Verizon.  Some very interesting things are embedded in this list, most noticeably the fact that there are no bloatware apps.  As a possible “Nexus” device, we wouldn’t expect there to be any, but this is a good sign that at least this build does not currently have any.

Some other things that stuck out were the apps labeled NFCGoogle.apk and FaceLock.apk.  We expected to see NFC technology as a Nexus, but were not necessarily expecting to see facial recognition software just yet.  Remember, we first saw this demoed at Google I/O just a few months back.

Also, there is an app called ChromeBookmarksSyncAdapter.apk which suggests that there will finally (seriously, FINALLY) be a way for you to sync your Chrome browser with the new Ice Cream Sandwich browser.

We are just a little over a week away from seeing this all unveiled at CTIA.  Full list below.

    Can I switch from a thunderbolt to this phone because I really want to try Ice Cream Sandwich.

    vzw is on there, verizon away!

  • J Dub

    I am in a dilemma. I want to be surprised and blown away on Oct. 11 @ 2:30 PM EST but I also want to get all the latest leaked news.

    In other news, how does this stack up to the D1’s from the factory app list? When the OG launched it was a pretty much stock phone? I can’t remember because I rooted and ROM’d the thing while it was still charging for the first time.

  • Bobby Perry

    Hey dudes, I really hope the Galaxy Nexus comes in ceramic white. What do you all think?

  • shdowman

    I have a crazy theory that just kind of struck me today…..

    Maybe VZW ISN’T getting the *phone5 and is instead being offered the *phone4S.

    This would line up with a couple of things:

    1. VZW backing Samsung in the dispute with Apple (as is T-Mobile, who we know isn’t getting the new fruit phone)

    2. VZW allowing another stock android device on their network, free of bloatware and the like. I always assumed the OG Droid would be the first and last stock experience on VZW we would see.

    3. The push to have so many top tier android phones at one time (Bionic, “Vigor”, Nexus), when they have been putting out mediocre, at best, updates to existing lineups. (my opinion…RELAX)

    Just a thought. Don’t care either way as I am crossing fingers for Nexus, which I am 98% sure is coming for VZW. But there are others who will be most tearful if that ends up being the case.

    • Joseph Moreno

    This better be under $600 full retail. Because I want this thing on day 1.

    • Connor Moore

      As much as I would love for this to be priced under $600, I would be willing to bet my manly hood that it wont be. 

      • Jason Purp

        I just figured it would be because the Charge and Bionic were. Dammit, I really hope it is. I have no way of spending any more than that. And this phone will be the one that I use for 2 years. I’ve never done it with another phone, but this is the one that I do.

    Any estimate on screen size? I might have missed this in a previous post… if so, Sorry!

    • Anonymous

      If I remember correctly; 4.3-4.5

        Thanks! Nice… and probably typical samsung thin… I’ve really stayed away from samsung since some crap experiences in my feature phone days, but a Nexus device with ICS… idk if I can resist that regardless of manufacturer.

        • Philip Van Luke

          This is my next, i got burned on a tbolt in the panic to lock in unlimited 4G only to find out it was un-needed, i miss my DX. i cant wait for this.

          • Anonymous

            oh yes, me too. I’m hoping to find some sucker who wants the tbolt for at least a few hundred, and to get rid of my old DX for something so that I can afford this beauty on day 1!

    • Philip Van Luke

      4.65 inches is the most often rumored spec

    Not only do I not see any bloatware, I also don’t see any TouchWiz stuff in there, and most especially NO BING!   I’m starting to want this more and more the closer it gets to launching.

    poll question: lcd screen on my og droid is bleeding. should i get bionic or wait for this?

    • Jurquhart4

      wait

    • http://www.facebook.com/joseph.a.yager Joseph A. Yager

      agreed – wait

    • Sinofue

      Absolutely wait. Bionic Pentile will drive you nuts if the audio whine doesn’t.

      • Anonymous

        thats what i was thinking also. it better come soon cuz the corner of my screen being blacked out is driving me nuts….

    • Anonymous

      It depends on your taste.

    • Wunderwaffe

      The BIONIC is not a bad phone at all. People who don’t own one are probably the ones telling you different. Im not saying get it, but id say look at it in person and decide. I can tell you the qHD will look better than any other phones screen out in the sun.

      • Anonymous

        the only reason i’m willing to wait is because of locked bootloader. screen doesn’t bother me. will nexus have gorilla glass? i work in construction and my phone takes a beating. thats why i love my og :)

      The Bionic is now 1 cent.. what does that tell you… EOL
