Samsung and Google team up to launch the Galaxy Nexus

The ever-competitive Smartphone market has just entered new territory with the immediate release of the Galaxy Nexus. The Nexus is the world’s first Smartphone to run Ice Cream Sandwich, the rather amusing name for the Android 4.0 operating platform.


With power in mind, Samsung have given the Nexus a 4.65″ HD display using AMOLED technology. This gives a crisp resolution of 720p, making it one of the most vibrant displays on the market.
With a 1.2 GHz dual processor at its heart, the Nexus is well placed to shake up the market and take vital sales away from its competitors.

So how does the phone compare with its other competitors on the market? Well the raw spec can be found below, although when compared to its nearest rival, the Samsung Galaxy S2 (which represents great value for money whilst packing a punch) we will opt for its older cousin for now…

Processor: 1.2 GHz Dual Core Processor
Display: 4.65” 1280X720 HD Super AMOLED
OS: Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich
Camera: Main(Rear) : 5 MP AF with LED Flash, Sub (Front) : 1.3MP for Video Call
Video: Playback / Recording 1080p
Google Mobile Services: Android Market, Gmail, Google Earth, YouTube, Movie Studio, Google 3D Maps, Google Calendar, Google + app
Connectivity: Bluetooth 3.0, USB 2.0, Wi-Fi 802.11 (2.4 GHz), NFC
Sensor: Accelerometer, Compass, Gyro, Light, Proximity, Barometer
Memory: 1GB RAM, 16GB/ 32GB Internal memory
Size: 135.5 x 67.94 x 8.94mm, 135g

As you can see, the power is certainly there and it ticks every box for a Smartphone, along with the fact that it comes complete with Ice Cream Sandwich to tempt you. However, we think the real competition will come when Samsung release their Galaxy S3 phone, which you can almost guarantee it inevitably will.
