Samsung Galaxy Nexus is officially announced with LTE and HSPA+ variants
Well the wait is finally all over, but the Samsung Galaxy Nexus is now official-official as the handset was introduced in the long awaited press event in Hong Kong. After all the numerous leaks and whatnot, we can seemingly confirm most of the smartphone’s features and specs.

Right off the bat, it was made well known that the Samsung Galaxy Nexus will be available in two specific variants – both LTE and HSPA+ depending on the market. So yeah, in terms of raw data speed, you’ll be covered in enjoying those next-generation speeds – though, we're naturally inclined to expect the LTE version to offer the superior speeds.

Additionally, it’s confirmed to feature a truly magnificent 4.65” display that’s being referred to as an HD Super AMOLED touchscreen. So what does that mean? Well, for starters, we won’t have to deal with WVGA resolution that we’ve been seeing used by the handful of Samsung Galaxy S II versions out there, but rather, our eyes will feast on a staggering screen resolution of 1280 x 720.

Besides that sexy looking display, this juggernaut features a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 5-megapixel camera with LED flash, 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera, 1080p high def video recording, 3.5mm headset jack, Bluetooth 3.0, embedded NFC chip to share things on the go, 1,750 mAh battery, 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi, compass, gyroscope, proximity sensor, and a barometer. From the sound of it, the handset will pack in either 16GB or 32GB of internal storage.

Aesthetically, the handset continues to pack all that great hardware into a shell that’s 8.9mm thick. Not only that, but they’re able to actually stuff that massive screen without compromising overall size because of its 4.29mm thin bezel that’s able to keep the display very close to the edge of the handset.

Obviously, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich is also the star of the show with this beauty. Thankfully, we won’t have to wait that long as it’s mentioned to become available starting in November – though, there’s no exact date for its release. Nevertheless, the last piece of the puzzle to it all is going to be pricing, which is still unknown at this point. Regardless of that, does the Samsung Galaxy Nexus live up to your expectations?
