Galaxy Nexus uses fortified glass, not Corning Gorilla Glass

Galaxy Nexus uses fortified glass, not Corning Gorilla Glass

Though Corning's Gorilla Glass has all but dominated the review circuit when it comes to must-have features on mobile devices over the past year, it appears that Samsung and Google have opted for a different solution for their next hero device, the Galaxy Nexus. This device will play host to Google's next-generation mobile OS Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and is set to have a host of powerful features that make it a force to be reckoned with. Corning has assured the public that lo, and alas, the Galaxy Nexus does not have Gorilla Glass sitting on its front.

What you're seeing here in this post is a stack of benchmarks that've been recorded by AnTuTu (an app which tests synthetically several innards of an Android device including CPU, graphics, and more) and right up on top you'll see nothing less than the ASUS Transformer Prime, complete with a quad-core processor running at 1.4GHz! Below that you'll see another couple of hero devices from Samsung, (including the Galaxy S II from AT&T) but take note: they've only got two cores, half the power!

Galaxy Nexus appears in Samsung site search results

It appears that there must have been nothing the team at Samsung.com could have done to avoid an early outing of the search results for "Galaxy Nexus" as the listing has appeared for all to see just hours before its official unveiling in Hong Kong. Anyone who might have a try can right this minute search for either "Galaxy Nexus" or "Nexus Prime" over at Samsung and the "Best Match" result will be the "Galaxy Nexus from Verizon."

Samsung Galaxy Nexus photos caught on Google+

Photos apparently taken on a Samsung Galaxy Nexus have been spotted on Google+, with two Google engineers sharing images that, according to the EXIF data, were shot by the currently unannounced handset. Stills taken by Roman Kirillov and Chris Yerga list "Galaxy Nexus" under camera, though Google+ default resizing of uploaded shots to 3-megapixels mean we can't see the full quality the new Googlephone is capable of.

Google’s Next Nexus Phone Details Roundup [Mid-Sept 2011, pre-release]

Each time Google creates a new version of Android, they work with a manufacturer of smartphones or tablets as well as a processor manufacturer to create a hero device to host a completely vanilla (otherwise known as totally nude, clean) version of their software. The most recent examples of this come in the Nexus S, out for sale now on three carriers across the USA working with Google's latest smartphone OS, Android 2.3 Gingerbread. For tablets, there's the Motorola XOOM, available as both a Wi-fi only device and a Verizon-carried device featuring Google's latest tablet-based mobile OS, Android 3.0 Honeycomb. Though the XOOM isn't technically following the naming scheme, each Google Android hero phone is part of the "Nexus" line, the next of these set to feature the Android system to tie handsets and tablets together in one: Ice Cream Sandwich. While we still do not know the Android number (2.4 or 4.0), we have a collection of details on this device that's sure to get you salivating.
