The epic countdown to the official launch of the Galaxy Nexus (Prime) and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich is on folks, and the glory gates from leak-heaven keep opening further, dropping us delicious Nexus Ice Cream Sandwich flavored treats in abundance.

In but a few short hours, Google and Samsung will unveil two epic things: Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, and arguably the most hotly anticipated Android device of 2011 – the Galaxy Nexus (Prime). The leaked image above looks very much to be the Galaxy Nexus, and it appears to be taken from a magazine, further lending itself credibility.

To make matters even more enticing, it looks like a near perfect match of the video leak of the Galaxy Nexus running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich that came out last week.

While it does appear to be a touch different from the teaser image Samsung threw at us last week, it just simply doesn’t matter. As far as we know, and we’ve done more research on this than the sum of 10 kids going to college for 4 years each, these are the specs:


  • 1.2 GHz TI OMAP 4460 dual-core processor
  • 1 GB of RAM, 16 and 32 GB of storage
  • 4.65″ 1280×720 Super HD AMOLED  display
  • PowerVR SGX 540 Image Technologies GPU
  • 2G/3G/4G LTE Connectivity
  • 5-megapixel (rear) camera with 1080p video recording and an improved low light image sensor
  • and the usual suspects: Bluetooth/WiFi/NFC.

Is this the best phone of the year? I think it very well might be – do you? Stay tuned to Android Authority – we’re going to be covering the event like crazy! Also, we’ve just received word that carriers around the world are prepping for late October/early November release dates- more on that right after this!
