Google: Samsung Galaxy Nexus Unveil

Google and Samsung Galaxy Nexus Unveil 
Android 4.0 Codename Ice Cream Sandwich OS


The wait is over! With this smartphone, it will boost your cool experience!
The Samsung GALAXY Nexus is the first phone to run Android Ice Cream Sandwich - the version that is meant to put an end to fragmentation. The handset uses the concept of buttonless front and thin bezel to fit a 4.65" HD Super AMOLED display in a phone the size of handsets with smaller screens. It is powered by a 1.2GHz dual-core TI OMAP 4460 processor, and capable of shooting HD 1080p video.

According to Engadget, Focusing on Ice Cream Sandwich for a tick, Android 4.0 will bring "an entirely new look and feel to Android," boasting a redesigned user interface, bolstered multitasking / notifications, full-on NFC support and a new People app, which enables users to browse friends, family, and coworkers' photos whilst peeking their status updates from Google+. ICS also introduces Face Unlock, which taps into facial recognition protocols to unlock your handset. And then there's Android Beam, an NFC-based technology that allows you to "quickly share web pages, apps, and YouTube videos by simply tapping two phones together." According to Goog, the "lock screen, home screen, phone app and everything in between has been rethought and redesigned," and this is quite the beastly phone to launch with. Pics and a link to register for more info await you below, and PR per usual is after the break.
