Just in case you have been pulling a Rip Van Winkle and have slept through the dissemination of the specs, the Samsung GALAXY Nexus has a massive 4.65 inch Super AMOLED display at 720p and a 315.8ppi. A dual-core 1.2GHz TI OMAP 4460 processor is under the hood with 1GB of RAM aboard. 16GB of native storage is aboard and the phone has 4G connectivity over the carrier's HSPA+ pipeline. A 5MP rear-facing camera offers AF, flash and video capture at 1080p. A front-facing 1.3MP camera is great for self portraits and video chat.
If you are a Telus customer with an upgrade in your pocket and have been pining for the Samsung GALAXY Nexus, you can save yourself a lot of cash by buying the phone before the sale ends on January 26th.
