Samsung Galaxy Nexus Finally Announced! First Android 4.0 Phone

Today, finally at the Samsung-Google Unpacked event, the Galaxy Nexus was announced, the first mobile device of the Nexus family to run the Android 4.0 operating system. It was leaked several times before, but the official specifications are still quite different from the leaked ones. The Unpacked event has now ended and the announcement has given some good relief to the techies around the world. Since the new phone is the part of the Android and Galaxy family and it will very likely bring huge profits to Samsung as well as Google.

This phone consists of Face Unlock, which you can use to unlock your phone with your face(using the front facing camera). In this phone you would be able to share contacts, apps, directions, etc. very easily using Android Beam. Guess what, now there would very less use of the touch keyboard because this phone has Voice Typing, which enables you to enter text using your voice. Being a Google phone, the official Google+ App would be built-in.

Google claims Galaxy Nexus to be the first phone with a 4.65 inches high-definition sAMOLED 720p display which is quite big and the HD-ness makes it a lot more better. The slimness of the smartphones these days, make them more and more desirable. It is just 8.84 mm thick with a 4.29mm bezel. It runs on Android 4.0(Ice Cream Sandwich). The Galaxy Nexus has 4G enabled so you could have some awesomeness while browsing, watching movies on internet, etc.

On one hand, where the 4G makes browsing fast, the Dual-core 1.2GHz processor makes operating the phone faster. It also has a 5 megapixels camera with autofocus, LED flash, touch focus, geo-tagging and face detection. You can also record videos at 1080p high-definition.

This phone looks awesome with great design and the curvy and slim design. It has a hidden notification area in the bottom of the phone which lights up in green when you receive a new email, message or a missed call. The back cover is protected with some designed material to prevent it from slipping. It will be available on NTT Docomo and is expected to be available on Verizon as well.

Samsung Galaxy Nexus is going to hit the markets in November this year and it is definitely going to be quite a competition for recently launched Apple iPhone 4S. Not much word on the price, but it may be around Rs. 30,000(just a guess). You can check out the official website of this phone.
