If you missed Google’s Ice Cream Sandwich event in Hong Kong just hours ago, you’ll be pleased to know that we have a collection of hands-on videos of the new Galaxy Nexus smartphone for you to enjoy, as well as some official press shots from Google.
The Galaxy Nexus will be launching sometime in November, perhaps November 10 if recent rumors are to be believed. As seen at the event, the device will run on Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0 and its key specs will include a dual-core 1.2Ghz processor, a 4.65-inch 1280Ã—720-pixel Super AMOLED HD display and a 5MP camera with LED flash capable of 1080p HD video recording.
Other exciting new features of the device include Face Unlock, Android Beam and a brand new and stylish way to organise your folders on Ice Cream Sandwich. We have found a hands-on video for you to enjoy now, courtesy of Engadget and we’ll update this when the collection of other hands-on videos pop up online, which they inevitably will.
The video gives a great initial run-through of Ice Cream Sandwich up close and personal, and we see some of the great little gestures such as swiping away unneeded menus in the apps list, as demonstrated by Google at the event a few hours ago. We also get a preview of the fantastic new data usage feature that is built into Ice Cream Sandwich, which will allow users to set a limit on the data you use so you won’t go over each month – the interface to display this on the Galaxy Nexus looks very impressive indeed.
Check out the video below and have a look at the Galaxy Nexus running Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0.1 for yourself – yes, maybe an update is planned to upgrade all handsets to 4.0.1 upon launch, we’ll let you know about that one.
Finally, check out some product images of the handset below as well. We’ll add more videos as we get them.
