The Galaxy Nexus, released by Samsung in conjunction with Google in November of last year, had a legion of fans who loved the curved glass design that featured a gorgeous Super AMOLED display. If you happen to be one of those fans and have been waiting patiently for the next iteration then it looks like you are about to be in for a treat. Information has emerged about a product that has been given the code name "Superior", the model number GT-i9260 and could be the successor to the popular Galaxy Nexus.
The model number of the rumored device is very similar to the Nexus i9250 model version, which leaves us to believe this could be the real deal, due to the fact that Samsung has historically chosen to keep official model numbers of devices in the same family close to one another. If the product turns out to be the bigger brother of the Galaxy Nexus, then it comes with a fairly decent set of specification that includes a large 4.65-inch AMOLED high-definition display, as well as an impressive 8-megapixel camera to snap great images to show off on the display.
The device will be powered by a dual-core 1.5GHz Cortex A9 processor and will apparently come with additional external storage capabilities in the form of an SD card slot. The quoted model number for the device that appears alongside the Nexus name in the leaked spreadsheet has capable but not exactly earth-shattering specifications, which could point to the Superior codenamed device being a totally different phone altogether with premium specifications.
At the present moment in time, it is all just speculation and until we see something a bit more concrete then it could be anyone’s guess as to what we are really going to be getting. Over the coming weeks and months. we can only hope that we start to see a little more information coming out about this, but it is also worth noting that Android’s fifth birthday is coming up and rumors about Google releasing five Nexus models to celebrate the milestone can be once put into action. If that proves to be the case, then it’s unlikely that Google would choose a different hardware partner over Samsung, so stay tuned Nexus lovers.
