Google’s flagship device Samsung Galaxy Nexus with Ice Cream Sandwich is now a reality

Google and Samsung finally unveiled the Samsung Galaxy Nexus phone running on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich in Hong Kong earlier today.

The Samsung phone will be the first phone running Ice Cream Sandwich which combines the power of Gingerbread and Honeycomb with additional improvements. The Galaxy Nexus is set to debut in early November in the United States, Canada, Europe and Asia.


The super slim Galaxy Nexus with a 4.65-inch Super AMOLED touchscreen, will run on a 1.2 GHz dual-core processor. With 1GB of available RAM and the choice of a 16 or 32GB of internal data storage, the Nexus phone should fulfill everyone’s needs. Add to this a 5 megapixel camera with LED flash that can capture 1080p video, and you’ve got yourself an awesome phone/ camera.

Thanks to Ice Cream Sandwich, taking panoramic pictures just got easier with the panorama mode, and with the included live preview software editor, there’s no limit in modifying your best shots.

What else can the Samsung Nexus offer you? High speed 4G LTE or HSPA+ technology. And yes, the Nexus phone includes NFC which for the moment lets you share your content with other Android users via Android Beam.

Ice Cream Sandwich also comes with some new features such as improved multi-tasking derived from Honeycomb as well as a new Facial recognition tool to unlock your phone. Just look at your phone, and voila, your phone is unlocked. If your life is not simplified yet with all these new features, then how about voice typing? Just dictate your message and it will automatically appear on your screen.

It seems like Google and Samsung fulfilled most of the features we were all eagerly waiting with the Galaxy Nexus. I don’t want to bash, but sorry, the iPhone 4S is not part of my wishlist anymore, and you?
