First Look: Samsung Galaxy Nexus

1:22 /

CNET Asia gets a First Look at Samsung's newest Android phone, the Galaxy Nexus. The big-screen, feature-packed phone runs on Google's new Ice Cream Sandwich operating system.

-Samsung has just announced the Galaxy Nexus smartphone together with Google in Hong Kong. This new Android smartphone is the first to feature the latest Ice Cream Sandwich operating system. Its hardware features include a dual core 1.2 gigahertz processor, 1 gigabyte RAM, and near field communications technology. Another highlight is the huge 4.65-inch touchscreen with a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels. The new Android 4.0 OS brought many new features. Here, you see a unified menu screen that puts all your apps and widgets in the same place. The camera app is now capable of panoramic images. Just use the guide and the phone will stitch the shots for you. Here's a demo of the camera's speed. This is a big improvement over previous Nexus phones and I'm sure you don't miss shots because of shutter lag. Buttons are all software based in the Ice Cream Sandwich, so they are very few physical keys on the Galaxy Nexus. Just power and volume controls. On the back is a 5-megapixel camera and a textured back cover made from a material Samsung calls Hyper Skin. We still don't know how much the Galaxy Nexus will cost, but we do know it will be available before the end of the year.
