The Nexus One could recharge its battery when placed in a car or desktop dock the “three gold dots” on the bottom of the smartphone. The Samsung Galaxy Nexus appears to have the same type of “gold dots”, this time on the side of the phone. We assume they function just like the dots on Nexus One… but that means you’ll need a special dock to take advantage of the “plug-less” charging.
We haven’t heard anything official from Samsung regarding accessories for the Galaxy Nexus, so we’ve been left to wonder.
If one particular website is correct, not only will the Galaxy Nexus get its own special docks, those and some other accessories are available for per-order right now. Shipping is scheduled for November 21st, 2011 (or later, for some accessories).
Also, if the information is correct, the site confirms that the Galaxy Nexus will ship with a 1750mAh battery.
