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?

    Verizon only kills it for me.  Was hoping to see it on Sprint.

      *Scratch’s head* You know this site is dedicated to Droid/Verizon right?

      Pretty sure Sprint’s had a Nexus opportunity already.

    So wait…the galaxy nexus and the nexus prime are two different phones?

  • cream cheese

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

    If this was an HTC phone, yes.

    well.. d2, say hello to craigslist.

    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 ???

    my best friend’s mom makes $78 an hour on the computer. She has been out of job for 9 months but last month her check was $7587 just working on the computer for a few hours. Read about it here HardRich.com


    so free tethering right? better be…

  • Gimme!!! Gimme!!!

    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…?

  • Anonymous

    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

      • Anonymous

        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.

    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.

    “Is this your dream device?”

    Close enough for me.

  • Lanhoj

    “Haven’t seen in years”?
    This site just lost credibility with me. Nexus’ are all stock Android.

    • Davros

      No stock Google phone on -Verizon- since the Droid

    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.

      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.
