Samsung and Google To Finally Show Off The Next Version Of Android This Week
This week is really looking like the week of Android. First we’ve got the big Motorola/Verizon event on Tuesday (the 18th), where we expect them to release an incredible beast of a phone known as the Droid RAZR. On Wednesday though that may already be old news as Samsung and Google will finally show off the next version of Android— Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich– and with it the all new Galaxy Nexus (previously known as the Nexus Prime or Droid Prime). Yeah, this will be a crazy week indeed.
For those who don’t know, the Galaxy Nexus is, like the Droid RAZR, said to be a beast of a phone headed to Verizon over the coming weeks. Rumored specs on the Galaxy Nexus say that it will have a massive 4.5 inch or 4.65 inch 720p HD screen (or in other words, it’s like having your HDTV in your pocket and everything– movies, games, pictures, Facebook, texts– should look beyond insane on here), a pencil thin design with a curved screen (like the new Galaxy S IIs and Nexus S), a fast dual core processor with 1 GB of RAM (so everything– from opening Facebook, to sending a text, to gaming, to doing all of that at once– runs fast and smooth and without any freezes or lags), and support for Verizon’s 4G LTE network. Yeah, now’s a pretty great time to be on Verizon and have an upgrade.
And while we won’t be at this new event live (it’s taking place in Hong Kong now), we’ll of course have all the info you’re gonna want and need to know about everything Google and Samsung show off. And if you’re interested in watching all the action live as it unfolds, head to YouTube.com/Android at 10 PM Eastern (7 PM Pacific) on Tuesday night (it’ll be 10 AM Wednesday morning in Hong Kong) for the livestream.
