Samsung is currently on a roll when it comes to producing the most sought after Android handsets on the market. This is all thanks to their Galaxy range which is currently creating more waves than any other Android on the market.
Samsung Galaxy S3, Nexus & Note 2
In particular, the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, Galaxy S3 and the Note 2 are the showstoppers. The Samsung Galaxy Nexus has its regular Android updates and stock Android build to boast, the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 has unmatchable hardware and size, and the Samsung Galaxy S3 is the best-selling Android smartphone on the market right now thanks to a perfect blend of features, hardware and design. However while all 3 Galaxy phones have their merits, as of today the Samsung Galaxy Nexus should be crossed of your upgrade list. Why?
Samsung Galaxy Nexus successor leaked, looks to be LG Nexus
According to Droid-Life a prototype phone has been shown online in the shape of the LG Nexus LG-E960. While the photos of the prototype are not new, the owner has confirmed the specs of the device along with details of the handset and questions that people have asked about the handset.
Confirmation is that the LG Nexus comes with just 8GB of internal storage and at the moment there isn’t SD card support. This would fall in line with rumours going around that the handset would be available in 8GB and 16GB versions. This is probably to keep down the cost of the handset.
The owner of the LG Nexus said that the handset runs on the 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 Pro quad core processor, along with 2GB of RAM. The camera is 8 megapixels, 1184 x 768, which is a little different to what the benchmark tests showed us. The handset is around the same thickness of the Samsung Galaxy Nexus and it does not have an LTE chip.
So it looks like the successor to the Samsung Galaxy Nexus has a better camera and more powerful hardware. If rumors serve true, it will be unveiled in the next few weeks.
