Yesterday saw the launch of the Nokia Lumia 800 and today it was Samsung and Google’s turn with the launch of the new Samsung Galaxy Nexus smartphone. Similar to Nokia, Samsung and Google chose Oxford Street in London as the launch venue with Phones4u’s store on Oxford Street opening at 8am to launch the device.
Google’s newest Android device is the first to run the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system, and features a 4.65-inch HD super AMOLED display. It is powered by a 1.2GHz dual-core processor and features an advanced 5 megapixel camera with 1080p Full HD video capture and playback.
The Galaxy Nexus is also going to be available from tomorrow via Three UK and from next week sim-free through online retailer Clove.co.uk.
