From last May there were rumors going around about that Google and five manufacturers would release Nexus devices this year. The reason behind so many handsets was to celebrate the 5th anniversary of Android. While there has been little news on this happening, today there is a rumor of progress.
Samsung Galaxy Nexus successor to be called “Superior”
The HSPA+ version of the Galaxy Nexus with the number GT-i9250 has been seen online. SamMobile said that it goes by the name of “Superior”. It is said to have the Cortex A9 dual core 1.5GHz processor along with a 4.65 inch Super AMOLED display. It is also said to have an 8 megapixel camera on the back and a 2 megapixel camera on the front. Rumor has it that the handset will also support microSD.
This points toward the device being an entry level Nexus and it may be one of the five devices that are rumored for release this year. At the moment it is thought that this may be in November of 2012 and this fits in with previous launch dates of Nexus devices and also happens to be the 5th anniversary of Google.
Now looking at the specs it doesn’t appear to be majorly different than its predecessor. However,that 8-megapixel camera might just do the trick as the biggest weakness of the Nexus phone was without a doubt its 5MP camera.
