With the bigger manufacturers turning their focus to India, how can Google miss out on an opportunity? That is precisely what Google must have in mind when it decided that India will be amongst the countries that will receive Google Galaxy Nexus, the next generation of Google’s flagship Android device in the first phase of delivery itself.
And that’s not all; Google has also added a dedicated India specific Nexus page for the upcoming device where people from here can register for news and perhaps for prebooking as and when Google starts taking orders for the device, which is scheduled to release in November.
Galaxy Nexus (GT-I9250) will be based on Google’s latest and most advanced mobile operating system — Android Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS). Along with that the device will be capable of connecting to fourth generation networks and delivering data speeds of up to 21 Mbps. Galaxy Nexus will feature an 8.94 mm slim form factor and dual-core 1.2 GHz processor by Texas Instruments coupled with 1 GB of RAM and 16 GB onboard memory.
It will have a 4.65 inch Contour touchscreen display based on Super Amoled HD technology. This Contour display has rounded corners and possesses a curve just like its predecessor model Nexus S. The Galaxy Nexus’ Super Amoled HD display comes with 1280 x 720 pixel resolution support natively with 16:9 aspect ratio.
This smartphone is to have a 5 megapixel auto-focus camera with LED flash at the rear. It will be capable of recording 1080p full HD video. Google has also apparently tweaked the camera app for zero lag, and on the front there will be a 1.3 megapixel camera for video calls and chat.
