Samsung's latest smartphone is a specs monster

Samsung offered a brief teaser of its upcoming Google "flagship" smartphone earlier this week. The Samsung Galaxy Nexus (previously known as the Nexus Prime) will be the standard bearer for Google's Ice Cream Sandwich mobile operating system.

Today, Boy Genius Report (BGR) is revealing the full specs of the Galaxy Nexus that will be unveiled next Tuesday:
  • Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich
  • 9mm thin
  • 4.65-inch 1280 x 720-pixel Super AMOLED HD with curved glass
  • TI OMAP 4460 dual-core Cortex A9 processor clocked at 1.2GHz
  • 1GB of RAM
  • 32GB of built-in storage
  • 5-megapixel camera on the back, 1.3-megapixel in the front
  • 1080p HD video capture support
  • LTE/HSPA depending on carrier
  • Wi-Fi a/b/g/n
  • NFC
  • 1,750 mAh battery
According to BGR, the Galaxy Nexus will at least initially be tied exclusively to Verizon's wireless network. BGR also notes that since this is a Google Experience device, you won't have to worry about dealing with TouchWiz getting in the way.

After BGR's iPhone 5 debacle, I doubt we should be looking to them for proof of what the Nexus Prime's specs will be. Hopefully they are wrong about it being a VZW exclusive, and Samsung has some surprises for us.

I think the specs have to be wrong. Why would the Galaxy Nexus have an inferior SOC to the Galaxy II that contains Samsung's Exynos 4212?? I can't imagine the Nexus using a SOC with a 45nm node. If that is the case I'll be waiting for something that comes in at least a 32nm.

BGR has already been debunked by insiders. Their specs are mostly incorrect.

Didn't other carriers get the Galaxy SII not too long ago?

It might seem a bit plausible due to someone at Verizon stating that they will be getting a Samsung that would be tailored for them after not receiving the GSII.
