Samsung and Google have officially unvieled the highly anticipated Galaxy Nexus.
Here are the phone's main tech specification:
- 4.65" Super AMOLED 'curved glass' screen with 1280 x 720 pixels and a 16:9 aspect ratio that's 'perfect for watching movies'.
- Screen contrast of 100,000:1.
- Pixel response time of 0.01 ms (that's something we'll need to test for ourselves, as an LG OLED TV also announced with a response time of 0.01 ms scored a 5 ms ghosting time in our tests).
- Slim 4.29 mm bezel around the screen (the slimmest yet).
- 5-Megapixel camera (is that all? Does it have a backlit sensor? In any case, Samsung claims it works particularly well in low light.). The camera has a built-in flash and Samsung is promising 'zero shutter lag' so you can snap a scene in under a second. We're certainly keen to test that for ourselves, as shutter lag is one of the main weaknesses of current cameraphones! Samsung also says that the zoom function has been improved, with sharper picture quality and more detail, but there's no word of what technology is involved.
- HD video recording in 1080p.
- Front camera: 1.3 Megapixels.
- Processor: Texas Instruments 1.2Ghz OMAP 4460 dual-core Cortex A9.
- RAM: 1 GB.
- Internal memory: 32 GB but there's no microSD card slot listed in the tech specs.
- Wi-Fi n, Bluetooth 3.0, GPS, proximity sensors.
- Battery: 1750 mAh
- Dimensions: 136 x 68 x 11.5 mm (8.8 mm at its slimmest point).
- Weight: 135 g.
The Galaxy Nexus is also very much integrated with Google with apps like the new People app, which allows for easy updating on Google+. Other Google services built-in on the phone include “Android Market, Gmail™, Google Maps™ 5.0 with 3D maps and turn-by-turn navigation, Google Earth™, Movie Studio, YouTube™, syncing with Google Calendar™, and a redesigned Google＋ app.”
