    That's the nexus s I believe. Not the upcoming phone. The picture is just there as a sort of reference.

    What I don't understand is... why would Samsung use a third party SOC when they produce their own? They've partnered up with nVidia in some markets for their SGSII, but that appears to be a special circumstance.

    What did they use in the Nexus S?

    Because even though the phone is made by Google I think they have the final say on everything in it. Hence why even though it's also a Samsung it doesn't have touchwiz on it as well. They are just using every available resource they would like to make it the best and THE android phone out there. Hence the usage of the First IC OS, the best screen on the market and possible in Google's opinion the most reliable and fastest processor.

    That's what I don't like though. The Exinos seems far superior. I don't like the fact that the 4460 is just a 4430 at 1.5ghz while using the same PowerVR SGX540 from last year's humminbird. The Mali400 seems to be fastest atm, though I wouldn't consider it the best.
    *Please correct me if I'm wrong.

    I really, really hope this is true and Verizon finally gets a Nexus phone. Nexus+LTE+Super AMOLED= Perfection.

    If Verizon were to ever receive a Google flagship device, I wish they would let out some of the information. I'm due for an upgrade in September and have given up on Verizon ever getting a pure Google phone again. I'm planning on the GSII but would consider waiting if I knew a developer phone was coming.

    If this is a Google phone there's no bloat and no third-party stuff like Blur, Touchwiz, etc. Pure Android.

    Since all this is speculation they just may pull a moto and change processors and go with Exinos and add VZW LTE and pure google and I don't care about 8mp cam just give me quality pis with a good sensor(iphone style)and the newest version of Icecream-NASTY!!!

    That's the point. They don't want you to wait which is why they are close lipped.

    I pray Verizon gets this, even there VZW bloat wouldn't bug me because the phone is unlocked and would be rooted quickly.
