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

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.

come in 16GB and 32GB versions, the latter option being a first for Android


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.
