Samsung Galaxy Nexus and ICS announcement: Live Coverage!

Welcome to our Live Coverage post, dedicated to the official unveiling of the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, and Ice Cream Sandwich - the latest version of the Android operating system by Google. As you might guess, we'll be treating you with up-to-the-minute updates during the course of the event, so that you can be in the know of all that is happening right now over in Hong Kong, where the announcement takes place.


We’ll be starting our liveblog around 7:00pm pacific time | 10:00pm eastern time. We expect it to finally bring Google’s answer to iOS 5 - Ice Cream Sandwich, a statue of which has already been erected at Google’s HQ. Samsung is expected to back it up with the Nexus Prime, a 4.6” technological behemoth with a curved glass display, dual-core processor, LTE and everything else you can imagine save for a built-in coffee machine.

The most interesting thing here might be the OS since manufacturers now can add more robust hardware to it

why don't they talk about how weak the gpu of the nexus is compared to the likes of the powerVR 543mp or even the mali 400?

because any manufacturer can put ICS on the hardware you want

NFC is hands down the most exciting addition in my opinion!! It will be awesome to see what developers do with this.

And PA is still calling it the Nexus Prime, despite the words "galaxy nexus" plastered all over the event stage.

1.2ghz dual core Ti omap 4460, 1 gig ram, and a 5mp camera. I knew this phone can't beat the gs2! For all of those saying the Prime is ALL! HA!

they both have their ups and downs.. wait for the official announcement and any surprises before making final judgements.

People really need to get over the 5 MP/8 MP thing. Just because Apple caved to market demands doesn't mean Samsung must follow suit. Just give me a really great camera and I'll be happy.

In my opinion, I think the Galaxy Nexus is simply the constant variable in the next gen world of superphones. First 720p Resolution screen and ICS, so more and more androids will come out constantly improving the specs of ICS phones.

Well, there it is, folks. No lag photos. I'll definitely take that over a 3 second shutter lag on an 8 MP camera.

Nexus has the edge in visuals and aesthetics and the OS seals the deal.
