Verizon: Galaxy Nexus coming ‘later this year’
The carrier did not announce an exact release date or pricing at this time, but Samsung and Google said last week at the unveiling event that the smartphone would start shipping in the U.S., as well as parts of Asia and Europe, in November.
The Galaxy Nexus is the first device to ship running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, which includes such enhancements as a facial recognition unlocking feature, photo-editing tools, and Android Beam.
On the hardware side, the Galaxy Nexus rocks a 4.65-inch Super AMOLED HD touch screen with a curved design, a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 1GB RAM, and a 5-megapixel camera and front-facing 1.3-megapixel camera. The handset will also support Verizon’s 4G LTE network.
