The Oxford Street store in London of Phones4U will be the first place in the world that will sell the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, from 8am tomorrow morning, 17 November.
The phone shop has just announced the exclusive deal to sell the first ever Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) handset, at its flagship store at 112/114 Oxford Street in London, with doors opening at 8am.
Phones4U told us that the first 100 customers will get £250 worth of vouchers for free music, movies and other content. The shop will even provide breakfast for those queuing outside the store and Samsung will have demonstrators on hand to show you everything you need to know.
The Samsung Galaxy Nexus has a 4.65in high-definition sAMOLED Contour Display with a 1280 x 720 resolution - a first for a smartphone. It has a 1.2GHz dual-core processor which, combined with a sizeable 1GB of RAM, should ensure the Galaxy Nexus is searingly fast. The device is thinner than the Nexus S, at just under 9mm thick but weighs a little more, at 135g.
Its rear cameras has a five megapixel sensor and is capable of shooting 1080p video. Samsung claims it has no shutter lag, includes autofocus, takes decent low-light photos as well as time-lapse video. It also has some very impressive shooting modes including panorama and live effects akin to the photo booth app we’ve seen for years on Macs.
The phone will come in 16GB and 32GB versions, the latter option being a first for Android devices.
Phones4U will be offering the Galaxy Nexus for ‘free’ from £46-a-month, or for £29.95 on a £41-a-month tariff, on a choice of networks.Will you be heading to Oxford Street in the morning? Let us know in the comments.
