While it carries the signature elements of the Nexus S like the curved concave screen, the outside visuals have went through a major overhaul. Actually, there are two versions of the handset - one with CNC-machined brass body adorned with 24-carat gold and the other with CNC-machined aircraft aluminum. On the back, two stunning pieces of sapphire crystal come together at an angle and the battery cover is made of the same material.
Just like the original Nexus S, the screen here is 4 inches in size and 480 x 800 pixels in resolution, but it’s changed the technology now sporting Super LCD instead of the Super AMOLED on the original handset. Under the hood, the same internals including the 1GHz chip, 512MB of RAM and 16 gigs of internal storage run the Gingerbread show. On the back, the 5 megapixel camera is the same one as on the Nexus S which is a good thing as you liked it best in our latest outdoor test.
The Grand Touch is sold unlocked in a variety of colors. The price? Not yet disclosed, but the rule of thumb here is that if you ask – you can’t afford it. Ogle for free, though, we can.
