Galaxy Nexus product launch postponed

UPDATE: Word has it that the product launch event was postponed due to Steve Jobs recent passing. “We believe this is not the right time to announce a new product as the world expresses tribute to Steve Jobs’s passing,” the spokesperson said. “We do not have information on the rescheduling of the event.”.

With less than 5 days away till Samsung Unpacked event, Google and Samsung has announced that they will postpone the launch of their upcoming device, the Galaxy Nexus.

They didn’t explain the reasons behind the last minute postponement but had released the following statement:

“Samsung and Google decide to postpone the new product announcement at CTIA Fall. We agree that it is just not the right time to announce a new product. New date and venue will be shortly announced.”

There are couple of speculations over the move with one of it being Steve Jobs recent passing. Another possibility are issues on either device or software that needs to be ironed out before launch. Despite not giving any new launch dates, we hope the delay is a short one.

If you missed it earlier, the Galaxy Nexus was revealed in video which gives a clear view of the upcoming device and Ice Cream Sandwich operating system.


(Updated with video) First real look at the Google Galaxy Nexus

Update: More drool inducing stuff. Now we’ve got a 1min 30sec video of the Google Galaxy Nexus running on Ice Cream Sandwich. Watch after the jump.

Boom! Here it is, the first real look at the Google Galaxy Nexus (aka Nexus Prime) and oh boy does it look good! We seriously can’t wait for this bad boy to come to Malaysia.

Actual specs on the device is still up in the air with the processor (1.2GHz dual-core vs 1.5Ghz dual-core), camera (5MP vs 8MP) and battery (1,750mAh vs 2,050) being strong argument points at the moment.

What do you think?

In any case, we’ll be doing live commentaries when the Galaxy Nexus breaks cover at the Samsung Unpacked in San Diego on October 12, Wednesday at 0230hrs Malaysian time.

Nexus Prime officially named Galaxy Nexus. Full specs leaked

The Nexus Prime is probably the most anticipated Android device right now. As the shape and design of the device have been all but revealed, focus now turns to its specifications. Ahead of its launch, BGR revealed the full specifications of the device once codenamed Nexus Prime. Here’s the low down on the device that will officially be called the Samsung Galaxy Nexus:

  • Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich
  • 9mm thin
  • 4.65-inch 1280 x 720-pixel Super AMOLED HD with curved glass
  • TI OMAP 4460 dual-core Cortex A9 processor clocked at 1.2GHz
  • 1GB RAM
  • 32GB of built-in storage
  • 5MP rear camera with 1080p HD video capture, 1.3-megapixel front camera
  • LTE/HSPA depending on carrier
  • Wi-Fi a/b/g/n
  • NFC
  • 1,750 mAh battery

BGR says that the Samsung Galaxy Nexus will be a pure Google Experience device which means there will be no third-party UI skins or modifications. So TouchWhiz fans, you’re not getting any on the new Google phone. It’s cool that the Galaxy Nexus will be getting Ice Cream sandwich but we’re pretty bummed that its running a 1.2Ghz dual-core processor instead of the 1.5Ghz Exynos unit rumoured earlier. We were really looking forward to an 8MP camera as well. In any case, as you know, numbers only tell one side of the story. How the hardware performs in real-life is another thing altogether.

We’ll be giving live commentaries during the Samsung Unpacked event happening in San Diego on October 12, Wednesday at 0230hrs Malaysian time. The Samsung Galaxy Prime is set to be revealed then, so stay tuned.
