Samsung Galaxy Nexus Details Leak: Fully Stock Experience and a Verizon Exclusive

The folks over at BGR have received what they believe to be the official spec list and name for the next Nexus device, thanks to a trusted source.  And what name has been decided on?  Galaxy Nexus of course.  The same name we have been using for weeks now thanks to a couple of our trusted sources.

They are also reporting that the G-Nex will be a Verizon exclusive and a completely stock Ice Cream Sandwich device, something we haven’t seen in years. No bloatware or skins here, folks.

The spec list is after the break.  I’ll just say that this matches up perfectly to what I have been told and believe it to be legit (aside from the processor, front camera and battery).  Thank Buddha, someone else finally reported on it so that we can start talking about it more openly. 🙂  

  • Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich
  • 9mm thin
  • 4.65-inch 1280 x 720-pixel Super AMOLED HD with curved glass
  • TI OMAP 4460 dual-core Cortex A9 processor clocked at 1.2GHz
  • 1GB of RAM
  • 32GB of built-in storage
  • 5-megapixel camera on the back, 1.3-megapixel in the front
  • 1080p HD video capture support
  • LTE/HSPA depending on carrier
  • Wi-Fi a/b/g/n
  • NFC
  • 1,750 mAh battery

So, the only thing I was not told about was which specific processor was included.  Knew it was an OMAP at 1.2GHz, but with rumors of delays on the 4460, we were assuming they had just overclocked the 4430 to 1.2GHz – hoping they figured it all out and went big.  Also can’t confirm the battery, if the internal is 32GB or if the front camera is only 1.3MP.

Is this your dream device?

    The name will definitely be “galaxy nexus”, this is the “combination” the teaser was getting at.

    If this was an HTC phone, yes.

    If the specs are true it may not have the fastest processor but it beats the crap out of my Droid X.  I held off on the Bionic because I knew that true 1280×720 res display were coming out.  As for the camera I don’t care if it’s 8mp or 5mp, just that it take decent shots and is quick.  This is a worthy upgrade from my Droid X.  My next draft pick would be the HTC Vigor.  

  • Is this going to be faster than the Vigor or slower ???

    Why a Verizon exclusive, and then you’re talking about an LTE or HSPA radio depending on the carrier? Which report is correct?

    Something’s fishy.  If it’s Verizon exclusive, then why would it include “LTE/HSPA depending on carrier”? And a 5 MP rear camera only?  Did we slide back two years into the past??

    I really hope this has a MicroSD Card slot because if it doesn’t that’s really going to be a pain.

  • Must… have… this…. now!

  • um, so the HTC Vigor has better specs…?

    I thought this will have a 1.5 mgz and 8 megapixels. So the only thing this device will have over the droid hd is the ics lol. This is a joke

      The OMAP 4460 is indeed clocked at 1.5 GHz. I don’t know where the monkey BGR picked it up as 1.2 Ghz..

    • Klintster

      So the Droid HD has ICS, NFC and is vanilla Android? O_o

        It has amoled. It will have ics

  • Now BGR is normally pretty good….but they did have the supposedly leaked iPhone 5 SPRINT 20Billion$$$ earlier this week that turned out to be a flop…..so props to BGR as most of their stuff is solid….but it is yet unreleased and suspect until it’s officially unveiled

    All that being said….even if half the rumors are true this thing is smoking….so it looks like a high spot contender for my OG Droid replacement.

  • niteperson

    I dunno. This thing will be a beast, but I’m not sure I want a screen that big. The Droid X pushes the limit of what is comfortable, at least for me.

    It truly sucks how when specs are released for the phone that NO ONE pays attention or ever lists the GPU. GPU will be VERY important and related to battery life with a fully hardware accelerated UI like Ice Cream Sandwich. The days of JUST showing the cpu should be over, it’s NOT enough information without the GPU as well. That is all. 

  • QQMore

    Wow, I was seriously debating going with a Win7 Mango specific phone (i.e. new model not yet released) if an LTE one comes out so I could integrate my Zune stuff, but if this thing comes out looking like this and with those specs…….  Well, let’s just say I found my upgrade from my OG Droid finally.

    • I was in the same boat. I love Zune app and Xbox Live so I was hoping a nice LTE Mango device would show up but after looking at the Nexus Specs… looks like I’m staying with Android for another 2 years. Goodbye OG Droid, it’s been awesome

  • Anonymous

    Looks like im not getting a camera MP upgrade 😀 but i know that my pics will be awesome! OG Droid has a horrible 5MP camera. Can’t wait for this thing all my friends have lightning fast phones compared to mine(overclocked) and its time for change 🙂 My only concerns about the phone now are battery life and sd card slot (unlike the Nexus S). Everyone on other carriers should be jealous if this is verizon exclusive.

    As I suspected, BGRs specs are already being shot down in circles across Android Nation. Kellex, could it be that you have been misled? I would be surprised to see Samsung release THE DEVICE of 2011 on THE BIGGEST (U.S.) network with lower specs than the SGS2 HD LTE they have already announced.

    Samsung rides the cutting edge of tech and isn’t afraid to take risks, so I highly doubt they would regress on certain specs like camera and battery capacity. If nothing else than for bragging rights against their most hated rival. Nope, just can’t see it happening.

    As a little backup to my guesses, isn’t the 4460 clocked to 1.5GHz, not 1.2? The numbers don’t match up.

  • Better not be Verizon only. 

    • Anonymous

      Not a chance. This is Samsung’s i*hone world beater, therefore it’ll need GSM radios by default. Will just be a temporary exclusivity period.

  • I hate that the screen is so big 🙁 4″-4.3″ is the ideal size. This is too big!

  • Anonymous

    I don’t buy Verizon Exclusive. At most, it’s a US exclusive for Verizon or a timed exlusive. A verizon exlusive would mean no Nexus phones outside the US. Not happening. Either way, those two are very different from a Verizon exclusive.

  • I gotta say, I know that megapixels aren’t everything, but I’m (and I’m sure some of YOU) are a little dissapointed about this 5mp business.  I’ve got a DROID3 now, 8mp, and post update (fixing the smurf issue), the thing takes really good pictures.  Video is high quality as well.

    And now that the thing has rooted, we can probably expect that we’ll see an ICS build running loose before too long.  

    And I would be losing the sweetest keyboard on any DROID ever!

    I’ve been a Nexus Prime screamer-from-the-rooftops guy as much as anyone, but the blow to the CPU and the downgrade (I know, I know) in MP is something that I will definitely pause over now.  

    This would have been a day 1 purchase for me.  But with these specs, it’s going to be a wait for reviews, and wait to actually play with it in the store purchase.  

  • Kellex or Zep…………..im concerned with the 32 megs internal they went without an sdcard slot like the previous nexus device. please tell us this is not true.

  • Any word on whether this will be 4G? I’m thinking not b/c it’s so thin and the 4G devices have been bulkier. 

    *d’oh, sorry, it says LTE right there in the specs. Thanks Ernesto. This is gonna be crazy.

    • Ernesto Chavez

      it shows it as an lte device.

  • After two years of my wonderful OG, the Galaxy Nexus will be my upgrade device at the beginning of November. America.

  • Tony Cooper

    That right there is what will replace my OG Droid.  /drool.  And here’s to hoping that the sensor on that camera is amazing.

  • rrosotho

    My only issue is battery life, it has crazy specs but i wonder if they will make an extended battery for a slim phone curved like that?

  • Eric

    Definitely my next phone. If someone is too stupid to understand the whole megapixel deal they are too stupid to appreciate this phone. The 5MP camera on my Vibrant is amazing and this one will obviously be better. I’m still pissed that they never fixed the GPS though.

    5MP in my opinion is good enough as long as it has a good sensor, I always thought iPhone 5MP was better than DInc’s 8MP. 

    Hope they make it World Phone

  • Hep

    Why is there always ONE feature that is weak on a phone?  They make it all great and just want to keep us slightly dissatisfied with a weak camera.  Doesn’t make any sense.

    • LionStone

      Neither does your gripe without snapping ONE photo! Geez…

      • Hep

        Sure it does.  Editing 5MP photos sucks because there’s too much digital noise.

        • LionStone

          Well you’re already calling it a weak camera without the final specs being announced or reviewed. If editing pics is that important to you then maybe you should get a dedicated camera!

    Why 5 MP, why not 8 with a bigger, optimised sensor? I’m a semi-professional photographer and while I do agree that 5 MP with a larger sensor is good enough for casual photography but since when did we start being content with good enough? Yes, no amount of mega-pixels can balance out a crappy sensor, but 8 MP is always better than 5. I’ve used the Nokia N8, and if there’s anything in the market that could come even close to that thing, I’d take it. My GS1 has a 5 MP shooter and it does take decent pictures, but, it’s more than a year old!
    So no, I don’t believe the 5 MP part is true, considering this is a flagship Google phone being released after the GS2 (which has a decent 8 MP shooter). I really hope it has a 8 MP camera with a larger sensor and hope it can get somewhere close to the N8’s quality.Also, aperture is much more important than any of the above. I heard a clueless bloke (won’t name him) on one of the live video-casts during the iPhone event who was raving about how he “was walking around Boston with his iPhone 4, Droid X and a DSLR and taking pictures with all three and the iPhone 4 almost matched the DSLR pictures”. I can bet anything that he was either lying or, as I said, completely clueless about what a DSLR is and/or how to use it!

    Anyway, I hope it’s at least f2.8, 8 MP with a larger sensor & has image stabilization. That’d make for a pretty good camera. And it’s fair to expect those specs from a device of this level.

      Actually, that is my disappointment with the bionic.  It should have be at least 4.5  I am looking forward to this screen size and hope the rest of the phone is better than the droid.  I love my OG, but I want the next big thing and Yes, docking will be an issue. 🙂

    I hope it has a larger battery, I really don’t care if a phone is 9 or 11mm thick, just give me more battery. 5″ 720p display will eat this thing quickly.

  • Questioning the 5MP camera. I saw it was like “Whaaaaaaat?” I realize that cameras on phones are more about the software, but 8MP is going to be the standard for this gen of devices…even the iPhone is getting one now. Baffling.

    Totally time for VZ to get a vanilla device. I totally hope the rumor about a gutless tablet is true as well. That would completely be the cherry on top of the icecream.

    Dream device

  • Juan Moreno

    Exynos is a gaming oriented SoC while the OMAP is more application based; it was chosen as the reference for its content streaming security features and not so much for its technical prowess. And yes the Hardware acceleration in ICS WILL make that much of a difference in terms of User Experience. Also, let’s not forget you can’t compare a 1.2Ghz single core to 1.2GHz dual core. I imagine the experience to be totally different.

  • tjmonkey15

    I’m really glad they kept the camera to 5 MP.  No point in going higher, especially on a phone.  I just hope they upgraded the internals of the camera.

  • joejoe509

    Huh. I’m not terribly techy but one thing I do know: These specs are super sweet, but ahead of the curve? Eh… How in the world does this have worse specs than the GSII? Why do we not have similar specs to the GSIIHD? Well, being a Verizon customer this will have to be my next phone regardless of specs. I’m still super stoked for this phone, but can’t help but feel a little deflated after all the hype. Still a gorgeous looking phone and it will be a worthy reward for not letting me have a GSII weeks ago.

  • slimb9

    is this going to have a microsd slot unlike the nexus s?

    • Juan Moreno

      If this doesn’t have a MicroSD slot, I am packing my bags.

      • Bionic

        why?  its had 32GB inside

      • You are already getting 32gb of onboard memory..Maybe take that down to 29 max with the software and what not and you should still be good. I have 1,500 songs, 4 movies, and a bunch of pics on my 32gb Ipod touch and i still have 6gb left. I rather get 32gb out the door than to get a 16microsd pre-installed and then have to shell-out more cash to buy a 32gb microsd

        • Juan Moreno

          That’s fine but how exactly do you access this memory? I just like the ability to load files onto my phone via external storage. Removing that is a step back.

      Great find. I hope that 8MP camera and 1.5 GHZ dual core is indeed the actual specs.

    Quick!  Someone pinch me and tell me that the specs I am seeing for this phone can not be real. These are the

  • djinn

    Do you think an unlocked boot loader is a given on this device since it’s a pure Google/developer device?  I would sure hope so.  Any thoughts or information about this?

    • If anything it will not have a locked bootloader like a Moto device, it will have a very simple to deactivate bootloader if its locked at all.

    • Juan Moreno

      Yes this is almost a certainty. Just look at the OG Droid. It was open as well.

  • Anonymous

    What’s with the lower processor speed? HTC is soon pumping out 1.5Ghz phones. Will ICS support hardware acceleration this time to off-speed that slower-clocked processor?

    I want a rationale similar to how we defend the decision to go to a lower MP camera… anyone care to enlighten?

    • Well a high mp camera with lower quality parts-lens-sensors, etc. is worthless and can not compare to a higher quality camera of even 2mp.

    • Anonymous

      Slower clocked processor does not mean less performance.

      You have to take into account several different things, such as cache size, cache miss strategies, pre-fetching strategies, etc.

      It is not as simple as “Oh, that one has a higher number, it must be faster!”

      • Juan Moreno

        All these damn SoCs use the Cortex A9, so your argument is somewhat moot. It is Apples to Apples here, and the higher clock speed does indeed make a difference.

    • Juan Moreno

      I’m with you on that. It’s not just about the camera, but about the fact that the processor is downclocked. However, this honestly matters little to me because it is spec’d at 1.5GHz meaning we can Overclock to at least that.

  • Nmnarora

    i think omap processor is for sure. because, google owns motorola mobility…..and motorola’s devices were based on omap architecture. So, working on a omap chip like 4460 would be great work from google’s side….as long as its smooth and apps launch really quick, processor dosent  bug me! but a 4.65” screen is too big. The ideal size should be around 3.7” to 4”. It should fit in the pocket. Its more than enough. Else one should own a tablet. why own a monster phone.

      Apple’s A5 chip contains an ARM A9 dual core processor with PowerVR SGX 543 GPU. This OMAP 4460 contains an ARM A9 dual core and a PowerVR SGX 540. The truth is that the A5 is the better processors, graphically anyway.

  • I NEED A RELEASE DATE!!!!!!

  • anyone else think these specs are a bit off considering the fact that Samsung announced that the specs of the Samsung Galaxy S II HD LTE are:

    Camera: 8 megapixel (flash)/2 megapixel on the front
    Battery: 1850 mAh

    omap processors are known for good battery life….and since archos g9 tablets are supporting it….so itll be able to run ice cream sandwich perfectly. Only thing that worries me is the low camera…..after seeing the iphone 4s…….it might be a hard choice for users to buy nexus or 4s…… :-s

  • LionStone

    YES! My buddy was right, it wont just be a rehash…it IS the real deal. Time from Droid Inc to TB was 3 mos. Time from TB to Nexus 7-8 mos. NO VZW logo, NO VZW bloat, killer new camera tech (yes ppl, 5.0mp will take fine pics!), LTE, NFC, nice size battery, thin, light and fast, new form factor..looove it.

  • Yeah I kinda want to know that stuff as well, I hope it’s thin size doesn’t make it so that you can’t swap battery, add sd card, hdmi support etc.  even thought it’s 32 gb’s i still have a 16gb card i would hate to waste.  Will that curve effect car mounts and other crap?  Also I hope the speaker is loud cause that was my biggest complaint about my DX.  I can barely hear people while driving when they are on speaker and can’t hear music from it in the shower.  AHHHH so many questions.  I want answers now!

  • Juan Moreno

    Is anybody else dissapointed with the Processor? 1.2 GHz? I was expecting more….
    The battery seems weak too. The 1.3 front Camera also pales in comparison to the
    Galaxy S2 model. In many ways, this seems like a downgrade from the Galaxy S2.
    Furthermore, That SGX 540 is aging, and cannot easily handle the 720p rez.

  • with a 4.65″ screen, it better be edge to edge display, I don’t want a phone larger in size than my TBolt.  Hopefully this is the case w/o the need for buttons in ICS, same physical size as the current 4.3″, just will less bezel.

  • Opie1995

    Does anyone know if the Samsung Nexus prime will be able to natively play MKV and DVIX files like the galaxy S and SII media player does? or is that a feature of Touchwiz? I hope it can unlike the stock android player. That was one of the great selling points of the Samsung phones…especially with the 720p display the Nexus will have. I have tons of 720P and 1080p MKV and DVIX, AVI files on my Synology server that I would love to be able to watch when I travel on the train.

  • I might have to upgrade early…. 

  • depends if they make Miui available as a ICS build, but the specs look awesome, i’m still leaning toward the HTC Vigor (thunderbolt 2?) with the dual 1.5ghz and it has the compasative buttons which I prefer on my phone.  I just think the Honeycomb sort of all software driven navigation is great on tablets but not so much on my phone.  but it maybe one of those things i’ll have to take time to get use too.

    For everyone saying 4.65″ is too big a screen, remember, home, menu, back buttons are now software keys. Screen should take up about the same space as a 4.3″ screen w/ capacitor buttons.

      Yea I also get this feeling….Don’t care too much about the 5MP camera, but I do care about the SoC. That 1.2Ghz is…..weak. 4460 is not pushing any limits here, but then it’s not meant to. I look forward to future.

    Doesn’t make sense.  It is stated to be a Verizon exclusive, yet lists LTE/HSPA (depending on carrier).  Exclusive means only on this network…..so……  Sorry, don’t believe it.  Why would they assign 2 different part numbers to this phone for Verizon and other networks if it is the same phone?  Then call it exclusive.  More rumor mills then you can shake a stick at.  This is beginning to sound like the reports on the newly released i*hone 5….oh wait, that was a fabrication of the blogs itself.  It would be awesome if this happened but no one really knows what is going on here and we won’t know until next week.

  • Fd2blk78

    Ive been waiting for this forever…I’m soooo waiting for this, wait, it only has…what? But I’ve been waiting for soo long. For a year, I’m so pissed. This phone sucks! I’m holding out for the Droid razr!

  • Jrod196

    I’ve got to admit, the specs so great except for the screen size. In my opinion, 4.65 is just too big for a phone! I’m not really sure why they would want to go that large on a phone screen size. I’m sure the S AMOLED +HD will look gorgeous on the size, but damn, thats a rather large footprint in the pocket. I am REALLY hoping ICS makes me forget about the size. I can’t wait for next Tuesday!

    • Kris Brandt

      4.65″ doesn’t mean the phone is getting proportionally bigger.

    • CephalicCarnage

      Perhaps they’ve increased the screen size a bit by pushing it closer to the edges of the device, and remember, there should be no soft keys for navigation, it will be all on screen.

  • Jamdev12

    I don’t know how this phone is ahead of the curve. Can someone fill in and tell me why the screen and ICS will be the only things this phone will be ahead of the curve compare to the new iPadMini4s? I’m no Apple fan, but to be ahead of the curve means replacing these specs.

    Camera: 5MP to 8MP
    Front Camera: 1.3MP to 2.0MP
    Both are in the GSII so is bull that Samsung can fit it.

    CPU: OMAP 4460 to 4470. The latter has the latest PowerVR chip which would compete with the iPadMini4s and give this beast a performance boost at this higher Res.

    Everything else is right on. I hope Samsung changes these. I would pay up to $350 for a device with the specs above and mine to make it better. Of course as many have also stated making it a universal phone would be awesome. I would have gone with a Marvell all in one comm. chip to offload all of that work, but that chip was announced a month and a half ago. Too soon for it to appear on any phone and probably making the phone a $400 device which is too steep for many people to buy in these economic times.

  • really only a 5mp camera? everything else has an 8 and this seems to be a step backward. On top of that on another tech site I read they have mad a 16mp sensor small enough for cell phone usage and will begin shipping as early as November and this is stuck with a 5mp. Not really a detractor for me since my Samsung Omnia has a 5mp and it takes great shots. Still really surprising! All of you in the know, please educate me, is this 1.2 processor actually better than the 1.5 in the Galaxy SII?

  • Anonymous

    hopefully the screen is corner to corner, otherwise this thing is going to be way too big.  It’s bordering on tablet size, and I already have a tablet.  4.0″ or 4.3″ would have been better.  Otherwise, color me impressed.

    Specs look good and if the sensitivity on the camera sensor is good, 5 MP will not be bad at all. A 4.65″ screen seems big, hopefully the physical form factor will not be that much larger than the 4.3″ devices.

  • Slimgym20

    I’m going to be very disappointed if the other carriers don’t pick this phone up shortly after Verizon. It would be pretty lame of Google to bail out on everyone that has been working so hard on their current nexus line up.

    Only question now is… whats the price going to be? 
    Please dont make it more than  $300!!!

  • Anonymous

    So reading the specs I’m hoping they mean:
    1) The camera is point and shoot quality, making the 5MP more than enough and much better than any other Android phone
    2) The processor was chosen as the faster possible (and battery would be respectable)
    3) Overall size will be fine.  Not any bigger than a 4.3 phone and thinner/lighter
    4) Battery is only 130 mAh less than my DX extended battery, so thinking that will be enough if it is as efficient (or more) than my phone

    Can’t wait for confirmaiton on the Vigor specs (unless I missed it) and much, much more importantly hands-on for each.

    • I use to have the LG Dare (feature phone) and it took better pictures then the cameras that came out later with high MPs

  • There are some things to really like like the fact that this phone is ICS stock, thats its super thin, the screen, NFC, LTE and hopefully more efficient in energy use.

    My only concerns are that its 1.2 ghz vs all the 1.5s coming out, 4430 and not 4460,

    Can someone explain why the curved screen is better or good?

    The Verizon-exclusive means I wont get it (nor will many of my Sprint-dwelling friends). On a week when the iPhone is launching on nearly all carriers, it seems like a bad move for Google to make their flagship device locked to just one.

      I’m not big on pixel stuffing, personally.  The early rumors stated that the camera would be 5mp, but with highly refined optics.  If that’s true (and it’s fast) I’ll be very pleased with 5mp.  It also means that your pictures will take up less storage, which is a big plus in my book (particularly if this phone ends up not having any removable.)

          • Anonymous

            qHD meaning a quarter of HD, that’s like calling a 4-cylinder car a half-a-v8. qHD is just a marketing term to make it sound better. However I’m glad you admit your Droid Bionic has an inferior screen. The first step is admitting a problem. We’ll see what the Nexus and Vigor screens look like and then revisit. If it sucks as bad as a bionic screen I’ll be looking at the Vigor, however I don’t see them dropping the ball on screen tech.

          • Anonymous

            qHD is 960×540 or one quarter of 1080p, not 720p. 720p is 1280×720. Once again, you won’t be able to notice a difference between the two at sub 5″ screen sizes unless you take a magnifying glass or zoom lens to it. You will notice some of the pattern effect from the pentile vs non-pentile though. Yes, the Bionic has pentile, yes it’s noticeable but I live with it just fine, especially in bright sunlight. Obviously RGB stripe is better. Let’s see if you cry about pentile on the AMOLED HD as much as you do about the Bionic’s screen.

      I’m imagining the screen goes right to the edge, plus there are no hard buttons so you have extra screen on the bottom to accommodate those. I think total size will be on par with current phones.

    • GinoSylum

      i don’t get the obsession with massive screen sizes. 

      • Jarred Sutherland

        I really don’t find 4.5 inches to be massive. I could ask a similar question of “why are you so obsessed with small screens?” … answer? It’s all about preference. I like having a large screen. It still easily fits in my pocket, and allows my old eyes to see a bit better.

        As these devices are used more for productivity and recreation than placing calls, a bigger screen is more desirable for a majority of people. Plus, they likely lengthened it to rid physical buttons. I’d assume(before actually seeing it in person) it’s not much bigger than a DroidX or similar 4-4.3” screen device.

A lot of you say “who cares” how often do you travel?  Reason, resale value.  These phones 12-18months old are still in demand in the US on the gray market because many buy them up to send to relatives abroad.  A DINC1 will get you less money then a DINC2 – if you unlock it, they will buy it for top $$.  that’s why old ass iphone 3g still have a good resale price.

      It’s all about the sensor size. 5mp is usually something like 2500×2000 pixels. 1080p is 1920×1080. You can cram all the MPs you want, but if the sensor is the same size, its the same picture quality with tinier dots.

      Samsung cameras are usually really good, so hopefully they made a good one for this. Over 5mp for a smartphone is overkill, unless you start putting MFT sensors on them. Which is probably impossible with current tech.

          I agree, that’s why the iphone takes good pictures because of it’s sensor.

      • Anonymous

        Totally.  People seem to forget that there’s more to a camera than the sensor.  The other equally important part is the lens.  If the lens can’t resolve all the detail to fill up each pixel of the sensor then there’s no point in having a larger mp sensor.  Also if the lens isn’t fast (meaning it lets in more light) you won’t have as nice pics.  This is why people who buy DSLRs with 15+ MP sensors and then buy cheapo lenses for them are idiots.  A 5MP camera with a good lens is plenty large for 8×10 printed images.  

        • These days, people rarely print out their photos.

          That being said, I think it’s justify to complain because look, we are not competing with just other Android phones. We are also competing against the iPhone 4S. Secretly, of course, I want the Nexus to beat it on every front. Apple wouldn’t spend almost 1/3 of their presentation to talk about the 4S’s new camera if they didn’t make the new 8MP sensor as good as the iPhone 4’s 5MP sensor.

          Of course, we still get a 720P display, which can beat the iPhone 4S w/ just the pinky.

          • Anonymous

            Even more reason then not to sweat the MPs.  If you want to beat the iphone’s camera just take a picture with the nexus and look at it on screen and see if it looks better/worse/same as the iphone’s.  The more MP’s the greater chance for noise, especially in low light conditions, and usually the more compression artifacts.  I can guarantee that if it was a 16MP the images would look like $hit.

    I kinda wish it wasnt so freaking big. I dont need a 4.65 inch screen, I’m fine with 3.7 so I’m sure 4.0 or 4.3 would have been more than enough. 

  • I’ll be posting this comment on every site that puts up this “rumor.”

    I’m sorry, but I tend to believe that this will end up being a situation like the OG Droid and the Nexus One. Google would be foolish to release it’s so called “developer” phone that’s only compatible on one network in the United States.

    I think this is what Verizon is getting instead of the Galaxy S 2 and that the rest of the carriers in the United States will see a true nexus phone a month or so after this launches. To give exclusive rights to a company for a nexus device goes against everything the Nexus line stands for, and giving that this is BGR (The same BGR who “broke” “exclusively” that the iPhone 5 was a Sprint exclusive) I’ll hold my breath until Tuesday and see what Google’s plans are.

    Like I said previously, I imagine this will be the first 4.0 device, as Verizon had the first 2.0 and 3.0 device, however I feel confident in saying this will not be the nexus device, rather just what Verizon gets instead of the Galaxy S 2. The rest of the world, and the other carriers in the United States will get the true Nexus, whatever that name may be, and this device will more than likely just be the first 4.0 device.

    • BGR was also the first source (to my knowledge at least) to break the news of the OG Droid. A lot of their info is solid.

      It’s also possible an i*hone 5 is in development and even nearing completion, but due to major shortages from their suppliers (as BGR reported) Apple felt as though announcing it and being unable to fulfill 90% of their orders would be worse than just announcing the 4S.

            You’re right. I still don’t see great battery life on this. I have to charge my Bionic mid-day while at work or else it will die by 4 PM. Not a big deal, but not great either.

            The extended battery makes a big difference, my Bionic just went over two days, of course that was with light use for the most part but the battery lasts a good day with heavy use as well.

            It is? Now that changes things 🙂 that is the only thing that i dont like about sammy and their display saturation. If it is not plastic, then it will be close to perfect. I hope that they fix the saturation when we take portrait pictures.

          Some previous rumors had suggested that there wouldn’t be a microSD slot.  Thoughts?

          Also, people know all these freakin’ details, and we can’t get the measurements of this thing!  I want to know how big it is overall, in comparison to say, the DroidX.

            The x is the best build device to this date 🙂

        So, software aside, the “only” upgrades to the Nexus from the SGS2 are LTE, more memory, and an HD screen?

        Hmmm..

      In the article it says that this is confirmation of information Kellex received from other sources. 

      Kellex posted before that he often gets info, but is not allowed to post it.  So, when someone else posts details it allows him to share with us the things he has already learned.

          It makes me wonder all the things that you know and will never say. 

          … are aliens real?

            Maybe… why don’t you look behind you!

            Nothing? Kellex, you were supposed to sneak up behind him!

        so he cant break any news and can only repost articles from other sites? awesome.

    only a 5MP on the front? seems like it should be at least 8. Either way this will be my next phone most likely.

      1.3 on the front *

        Sorry I meant on the back…doh.

      how many times do we have to say that MP don’t matter unless you’re going to blow it up to poster size? its the internals and sensors of the camera that count.

    • Anonymous

      All around performance, especially low-light will be better with 5mp.  The sensors in these phones are WAY to small (right now) to do really well with an 8mp camera.

    Yepppp.. this is definitely my next phone. My OGD can finally rest <3

    Oh god… I have never wanted a phone so bad. My ThunderBolt is so jealous. I believe she sees the writing on the wall and knows her time is limited.

  • Bryan Williams

    Sorry for the double post, I’m just THAT excited!

  • Bryan Williams

    Hooooooooly bejeeeeeezus!

    Please hurry up!

  • Dammit, I made a mess all over my desk

    The 5MP camera is somewhat surprising, but the phone looks like a winner.

    • John

      ya but we all know mp isn’t the issue with our cameras

    • Megapixels only tell you the resolution of the resulting image.  There can be 5mp pictures that look a LOT better than 8mp pictures.  It all depends on the hardware used.  Lets hope it has a NICE 5mp cam in it.

      Yea, kinda disappointed on that. It’ll be interesting to see the curve form factor.

  • I’ll take it!

  • Peter

    YAYYYYYY

  • Some Random Dude

    First!

    • Calvin Williams

      Kinda wish it was a little thicker to make it have a 2000mah battery and a 2mp front cam (I skype a lot.)

      Also I always put my pictures on 5mp anyways just because they shoot faster, but when people are buying a phone, they look at how many mp’s there are so that might steer some people away.

      Sexy phone though! Hope we get to see the front soon and some hands on time with ICS!
