We are just days away from the Ice Cream Sandwich and next Nexus smartphone launch, but none of the leaks or rumors has painted a believable picture. Joining the growing queue is BGR’s today list of specifications that are allegedly part of next Nexus phone or Samsung Galaxy Nexus as they term it.
Starting from the naming confusion itself, while Nexus Prime seems to be the biggest contender, Droid Prime, Galaxy Nexus and Droid Nexus have also been rumored. Next are the specs, BGR is reporting that next Nexus device will come with the following features:
- 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 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
- 1,750 mAh battery
As all this information is coming from an unnamed source, there are chances that it turns out to be all wrong but considering BGR’s track record, it was worth giving time to.
But, I am skeptical about the 5MP camera part. As 8MP has almost become the standard these days for high-end devices, unless Samsung wanted to keep the device cost under a specific target, the 5MP camera does not make sense.
If these specs are correct, overall the device looks less powerful than the recently launched Galaxy S II variant Galaxy S II HD LTE in South Korea, but power has not an important factor in Nexus S too. What are your views?
Update: New set of specifications have leaked, details and more here.
