Samsung and Google's next Nexus specs leak
Ice Cream Sarnie flagship to be be unveiled next week
Samsung and Google have yet to announce the next of their Nexus handsets - the debut is expected to take place next week - but the smartphone's spec has already leaked out.
Samsung cranked expectations up a notch when it released the following teaser video yesterday which claims "Something BIG is coming" above an image of an unknown handset with a curved display:
Today, BGR confirmed the pictured phone as the Nexus Prime and posted full specifications of the handset, based on "new information from a trusted source".
Apparently, the 9mm-thick Samsung Galaxy Nexus - codenamed Nexus Prime - will pack a 1.2GHz dual-core processor running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. It'll sport a 4.7in OLED curved-glass display with a resolution of 1280 x 720, and include 32GB of storage with 1GB of Ram.
There's also a 5Mp rear-facing camera that handles 1080p video capture, as well as a 1.3Mp front-facing lens.
While there are no details on pricing or availability, more will undoubtedly come to light at Samsung's event next week. ®
4.7 inches? That's a fecking tablet.
When will this madness in oversized phones end?
Sounds like it may be a little bit BIG
And just like that
The iPhone 4S has its ass handed to it. Well, I say that as if it hadn't already happened.
Can I have one thicker with longer battery life?
You sound like Steve Jobs a couple of years ago when he said phones with screens bigger than 4 inches would flop.
How did that piece of futurology work out?
