The Galaxy Nexus ships with Android 4.0.1 has a 1.2GHz TI OMAP 4460 CPU with 1GB of RAM and 16GB of onboard storage (with no microSD slot). The front camera can take photos at 1.3MP and video at 720p, while the rear camera is a 5MP shooter with a flash, and can record full 1080p video. The display is 4.65″ at 1280×720 resolution (making for a DPI of 315), and is of the Super AMOLED HD variety. The phone also supports Verizon’s 4G LTE network for extremely fast download speeds. You also get WiFi b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, aGPS, digital compass, a barometer (to assist with GPS accuracy), and NFC. The phone is 135grams, and just 8.84mm in depth. Powering everything is a 1850mAh battery.
Unlike some other recent Samsung smartphones, the Galaxy Nexus has a bit of heft to it. That’s not a bad thing either. It feels very solid in the hand. It’s not too heavy and not too light.
