Google has just announced the much awaited successor to the Nexus S, the Galaxy Nexus. Like the Nexus S, the Galaxy Nexus is also made by Samsung. The Galaxy Nexus sports a mammoth 4.65-inch display with an eye-popping 720p (720×1280) resolution. The phone has a curved display, and is also crazy thin at just 8.94mm.
Inside the Galaxy Nexus is a 1.2GHz processor from OMAP, along with 1GB of RAM and 32GB of internal memory. Like its predecessor, the Galaxy Nexus also does not have a microSD card slot.
At the back of this new Nexus handset is a 5MP camera, which is capable of recording videos in 1080p HD resolution. There is also a 1.3MP camera in the front. Other camera goodies include a zero-shutter lag, silly faces, panorama mode and background replacement features. The Galaxy Nexus includes all the usual connectivity options include a 4G LTE model for Verizon, and a HSPA+ version for T-Mobile.
On the software front, the Galaxy Nexus is the first Android phone which runs on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. This new version of Android brings many new features including redesigned UI, improved multi-tasking and web browser, facial unlock and much more.

The Galaxy Nexus will be available in the U.S, Canada and Asia sometime in November, and will be gradually rolled out to other countries.
