Samsung's Galaxy Nexus is sportin' Android 4.0, aka Ice Cream Sandwich

After weeks of teasing and false starts, Google and Samsung are finally ready to get official with Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0) and the Galaxy Nexus. Being that this a "pure" Google phone, customers will get the full Ice Cream Sandwich experience without the added fluff that carriers like to spray all over their smartphones.
 
For those that doubted Boy Genius Report's leaked specs a few weeks ago, you'll have more than a bit of egg on your face tonight. BGR's earlier story matches up perfectly with the production Galaxy Nexus:

  • 1.2GHz dual-core processor
  • 4.65" 1280x720 HD Super AMOLED
  • 1GB RAM
  • 16GB of memory (optional 32GB)
  • 5MP rear camera with LED flash plus a 1.3MP front facing camera
  • 1080p (30fps) video recording
  • LTE
  • 1750 mAh battery 

It should come as no surprise that Samsung has thrown in dual-band 802.11n, NFC, a barometer (!), and Bluetooth 3.0. Those looking for the nascent Bluetooth 4.0 spec in an Android phone will have to mosey on over to the Motorola Droid RAZR.
 
The most distinguishing feature of the Galaxy Nexus is its curved display which better conforms to your face while talking. In addition, the Galaxy Nexus is 8.94mm thick and weighs 135 grams. This compares to 7.1mm and 127 grams for the just announced Droid RAZR.
 
The Samsung Galaxy Nexus will operate on Verizon’s LTE network according to a leak from earlier today, which will be serving 178 markets by November 17.

Resolution is overrated. 8MP way too much for the sensor size. I'd rather have 5MP because that's more light for the cells. And what do you want to do with 8MP anyway?

Not if the pixels on the higher resolution sensor are lower quality (generally the case on tiny sensors). Believe it or not, zooming in on crap is going to look like... crap.
