Improved Galaxy Nexus Details Leak; Update is Minor: 8MP Camera, Better CPU, Better Front Cam
Since rumors about the new and improved Galaxy S II Plus leaked online, why wouldn’t Samsung also updated the Galaxy Nexus? This is exactly what leaked online now, an enhanced version of the Nexus, that was discovered in a comparative spec sheet courtesy of SamMobile. The current GSM Galaxy Nexus is the GT-I9250, that will be replaced by the GT-I9260 codenamed Superior.
The display stays at 4.65 inches and it’s still a Super AMOLED one, but this time the processor is bumped from 1.2 GHz to 1.5GHz, while the camera is an 8MP one instead of the 5MP shooter. Also, the front camera goes from 1.3MP to 1.9 MP this time. Apparently there will also be a microSD card slot on board, although that seems pretty unlikely if you ask me. With the Galaxy Nexus released in November last year, it’s time for a follow-up and hopefully it will be greater than a specs bump.
I particularly liked the speculation that Google was going to unveil 5 Nexus phones made by different hardware partners this Fall, when they celebrate the years of existence of Android. Excited about the new Nexus? Will it cannibalize Galaxy S III sales?
