Samsung Galaxy Nexus Press Shot and Specs Released Ahead of Tonight’s Event?

The internets were already buzzing this morning after Japan’s Docomo semi-announced that it would be carrying the world’s next Nexus device in November and then this image just showed up. I’ll admit that I have no idea where it came from, but it looks like a catalog or magazine photo from Docomo for the Samsung Galaxy Nexus. It definitely doesn’t look like any of the fake renders that have been released over the last few weeks, so at this point we are willing to roll with it.

Couple of things we immediately notice are the words “Android 4.0” for Ice Cream Sandwich. And then once your eyes cruise towards the bottom, you will see in fine print a couple of the rumored specs that could now be considered “confirmed.” What do we have? 1.2GHz dual-core OMAP 4460 and a Super AMOLED HD screen.

And today got started a lot earlier than we had anticipated…

    Seems very similar to the Nexus S.  Whatever the case this will be mine on launch day!!!

  • Billy Thompson

    Wouldnt it be funny if all of those iPhone 5 tapered case prototypes were really for the Nexus?

  • I need this on AT&T.

    Samsung has had great success presenting their devices outside of the US, now I know why they cancelled their opening event here in the US for Japan.  Just like the SG2 was a big hit internationally in the UK, Asia, China and finally the US.

    This might be my next device 😛

    I can already see all the pissed off Verizon customers when the even better nexus is announced on the other 3 carriers

    The shape of the phone looks significantly different than the teaser pic – doesnt seem to be a bottom hump, and looks less curved in the screen… or am i crazy?

    I’m so anxious I’ve been practicing on my soon to be eBay’d Droid Bionic

    Nice!  I think the thickness of this is very badly shown off in the press shot, theres now way to know for sure since the screen is rumored to be 4.6″  tonight all will be revealed 😛

    Moto can keep the RAZR or DROID HD whatever they plan to call it, won’t change the outcome 😛

    notice the 3 dots on that right image, I still wonder if that is some sort of tablet dock related point

    • EC8CH

      same docking ports as the N1…

      What is interesting is that they’re on the same side as the power button, which is an odd placement for a standard style dock.

      I’m very curious what those docking ports are intended for…

      • FortitudineVincimus

        wasn’t one of the published advertisements along the lines that “some things go together” and so the implication this phones “goes better together” with a tablet – hence the curve and attachment points.

        • EC8CH

          exactly… it seems like a pretty big thing to keep this well under wraps, but what else do you use docking ports for when the power button is covered up, unless it is placed into a device with it’s own power button like a tablet or something?

          Could be something BIG… or it could be nothing more than bad placement of the docking ports… but I can’t wait to find out 🙂

    anyone else see the 4.7 in screen mention at the bottom right?

  • Welp does anyone want a rooted Thunderbolt?

  • EC8CH

    Dock Ports  on the same side as the power button…

    “What Does it MEEEEEAN?

  • OMAP? No Exynos? Too bad. 

    • Keith Sumner

      Why too bad? It’s well known that Google and TI worked together to ensure that the OMAP would be optimized to work best with ICS.

  • Espnman36

    no matter what any android is a MASSIVE upgrade over my BB Curve.  Been waiting for this phone so I could finally join the android community!

    To be frank, Samsung is making the best hardware in android at the moment. I don’t know whats going on with HTC but they are releasing a new device every week with a new horrible name to it. I thought the sensation was going to be the flagship HTC device for the year and then build on it with variants  like the Sensation XE.  

    As lame as it sounds, I love having options in android, but do like some for of consistency as opposed to a completely scatter brain release approach. Can’t stand the 1 phone per year apple structure, thats too far on the other side. 

    The GS2 has had minimal if any bugs, its actually quite hard to find bona-fide market wide complaints about the handset, and the reviews are to die for. The amount of small details in the phone are striking.  

    If samsung puts that love and effort into the Nexus, then you will have the best phone on the market.

    Says they will be released in Japan in November. But released on a par with the speed of Verizon, that would be the point that does not correspond to the LTE.http://translate.google.com/translate?sl=auto&tl=en&u=http://reviewdays.com/?p=22767

    Have to take your hats off for the choices you get with android devices. While this is like a polished Ferrari, the RAZR looks like the batmobile. Whatever your taste, you get the choice. This is a slick looking device and will do quite well. I am sure the same will be for Moto as well. It is nice to have choices that aren’t a one size fits all approach. Maybe I want pecan pie instead of Apple.

    • Alexander Garcia

      Well said my friend. Well said indeed. I’m already getting a buttload of backlash for CHOOSING the Batmobile over the Ferrari! Haters gonna keep on hatin’ regardless!
