    With all the buzz surrounding today's Samsung event, and after Japan’s Docomo semi-announced that it would be carrying the world’s next Nexus device in November; now this image just showed up. We are unsure where this image came from but it looks like a catalog or magazine photo from Docomo for the Samsung Galaxy Nexus. It definitely doesn’t look like any of the fake renders that have been released over the last few weeks, so at this point we are assuming its legit.

    A couple of things to notice are the words “Android 4.0″ for Ice Cream Sandwich. And towards the bottom, you will see in fine print a couple of the rumored specs that could now be considered “confirmed.” What do we have? 1.2GHz dual-core OMAP 4460 and a Super AMOLED HD screen.

    And today got started a lot earlier than we had anticipated…

    I just hope with all the hype for this phone that Samsung has fixed the gps issue and improved the call quality.

    I hope the browser is as silky smooth as on the SGS2. Really worried that this processor isn't going to hold a candle to the Exynos processor.

    I will believe the specs and what the device looks like when it is in my hand. Even the official announcement wont change that, haha.

    To be or not to be........................wait what was the question? This signature has been Tapatalk approved.

    Interesting. I wasn't sure about the bezel being metal in the previous official image. The side shot made it look like a black plastic bezel and possibly a metallic battery cover, but the new image definitely makes the bezel look metallic. I thought at first maybe they were different phones or they modified the design slightly, but a side by side comparison shows they're identical in form and button placement. Maybe the colors were off in the first image?

    maybe the folks overseas are getting a slightly different design (or material tweaks), or vice versa

    I will have to see how the nexus compares to the other android phones coming out around the same time. I rushed in to the Droid Bionic, because the same day it came out, I got a customer loyalty early upgrade. I still had over a year left before my real update date.

    Do you see why I am concerned with GPS? The Fascinate takes 15 mind to find GPS.

    I like to hope Google wouldn't replace Samsung's Exynos cpu in a Samsung made device phone with a cpu that was worse. There has to be a reason for it to be an omap 4460... 12 hours to go before we find out!

    Yeah, that was a known issue with Galaxy S phones, which can be fixed, I hope you know. New Samsung phones like the S II and even the Charge have excellent GPS'. No worrys anymore.

    According to my measurements and the dimensions listed in that flyer it's about 10mm taller, 3mm wider, and 1mm thinner than the bottom of a DX.
