Samsung Galaxy Nexus successor said to pack a 1.5GHz dual-core CPU, same 4.65-inch screen
Before we present you with the latest bit of spicy Android news, allows us to stress that what you are about to read is just a rumor. With that out of the way, Samsung fan site SamMobile is speculating that a successor to the Galaxy Nexus is in the works. The handset in question is said to be codenamed "Superior" and supposedly carries a model number GT-i9260. As a side note, the GT-i9250 is the HSPA+ version of the Samsung Galaxy Nexus we all know and love.

On the hardware side of things, the rumored Samsung Galaxy Nexus successor is equipped with a 1.5GHz dual-core Cortex-A9 processor and a 4.65-inch HD Super AMOLED screen, according to the source of this rumor. The camera on its back is said to be of 8 megapixels and a 2-megapixel front-facing shooter is allegedly fitted as well. Interestingly, the smartphone is supposed to have a microSD card slot, which is really hard to believe given Google's disdain for removable storage.

Again, keep in mind that rumors like these should not be trusted just like that, or at least not until some solid evidence backs them up. Having that in mind, don't get your hopes high just yet. Sure, a new Nexus smartphone will most likely come one day, but whether it will be what this rumor claims remains to be seen.

The inclusion of an SD card slot does seem to support that hypothesis.

I think it is the best way for Google to sell many Nexus.The price will be affordable this time and thanks to Jelly Bean phone will work smooth without any lag.
So it can be considered as a smart movement from Samsung and Google.

Affordable does not mean low specs. Google should continue with Nexus 7 strategy.

I agree. Their next phone needs to be at least a quad-core if it's going to be an ARM A9. If it stays dual-core then they really need to have an ARM A15. Anything else would be a BIG disappointment.

I like the screen size but bigger would be a plus. 4.8 inch would be nice. Also 2GB of RAM should be standard among top tier phones. 8MP is fine with the right lens & all the other Google goodies that come with a Nexus is standard as always.

Every Nexus has been a big leap features wise & I don't see the next Nexus deviating from that mold.

This is just RUMOR. Google wouldn't do this especially after all the great features & specs the Nexus 7 has. Why can't they do the same with the next Nexus?

+1

Make it the mpq8064 Quad-core, at 2.0Ghz, 3000Mah, then root it, overclock it to 2.5. With 3Gb Ram.

Why dual core? -.- Might end up being a cons at the PA review, if it actually is dual core!

Nothing is confirmed yet. It should have Quad-core.

17. kweldude101 (Posts: 9; Member since: 09 Aug 2012)


it could be quad core but if they make it quad core the price will go way up and the Gnex has proven that with jelly bean, u dont need a quad core processor to be smooth

Agreed, with JB consistently pushing 60 fps, even on an older Ti-OMAP processor it's super smooth. Unless there's a significant battery life improvement or seriously need it for future proofing your phone against unknown advances Google is getting ready for, some of the dual cores are enough at this point in time.

I don't know why everybody is complaining. My laptop is 1.5GHz dual core. It's also 4 years old, runs a crap load of programs and it still runs fast. I'm sure google tested the quad core and maybe they are leaning towards a better battery life. This phone will still run great as long as it has jelly bean on it and can handle the next great OS. I'm personally hoping for a great camera and more ram. I'm really hoping the sd rumor is true.

thank you! Jelly Bean has proven to run on the Gnex just as fast as the S3 runs touchwiz. id rather google keep the price lower and increase battery life than adding an unnecessary quad core processor. 2gb ram, that 8 mega pix camera, and an sd card all combined and at the most, maybe $400 unlocked. now that would be perfect!
