Google Galaxy Nexus Price in the Philippines, Features and Tech Specs: Announced in October 2011, the Galaxy Nexus is Google’s latest and most probably greatest Android smartphone released to date. It serves as a worthy successor to the not-so-popular Nexus S. The Galaxy Nexus is the first smartphone to run Android 4.0 ‘Ice Cream Sandwich’ mobile operating system, which offers tons of new features and enhancements.
Like the Nexus S, the Google Galaxy Nexus is manufactured by Samsung. It is equipped with an awesome 4.65-inch Super AMOLED HD touchscreen that is capable of 1,280×720 resolution (315 ppi) and 100,000:1 contrast ratio. I think the display is really amazing and could easily beat other competing high-end smartphones like the iPhone 4S. So, there’s no doubt that the main selling point of the Galaxy Nexus will be its gorgeous screen aside from Android Ice Cream Sandwich OS.
Talking about Android 4.0, it offers several advance and innovative features that power users will surely love such as Face Unlock, Android Beam, Google Plus integration, and Voice Typing. Most users will also love it for its simplicity, speed, uncluttered user interface, and overall ease-of-use.
In terms of design, the Google Galaxy Nexus is drool-worthy. Despite its giant display, it remains highly portable and could comfortably fit in the pocket of your jeans. You can thank its super slim body (8.94 mm) and narrow bezel (4.29 mm) for that. Like the MeeGo-powered Nokia N9, the Galaxy Nexus has no home button or any button at all at the front. However, it has on-screen soft keys that are easily accessible using its huge touchscreen.
Having a dual-core 1.2GHz Ti OMAP 4460 (ARM Cortex-A9) processor, the Google Galaxy Nexus is at par with Samsung Galaxy S2 in terms of raw processing power. But its PowerVR SGX540 graphics chip is more powerful than that of the SGS2. The processor is complemented by 1GB of RAM, which should result in multitasking or running different apps at the same time a breeze.
Although it only packs a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera, they say that it is capable of taking high quality images the way higher resolution cameras can. It can also capture videos in full high definition glory. Like the previous Google phone, the Galaxy Nexus has a built-in NFC chip. The NFC wireless technology is utilized in Google Wallet and Android Beam that further adds handy features and capabilities to this smartphone.
All things considered, the Google Galaxy Nexus is a certified game-changer that gadget lovers should all be excited. It has the looks, the brains, and the power that keeps it way ahead of the smartphone pack.
The Galaxy Nexus will be available to consumers this November and will be sold in 16 GB and 32 GB storage configurations.
