This past year has been a busy one for Samsung. Not only did they claim the title of number one phone manufacturer in the world, but they also released two huge phones (Galaxy Nexus and GS3) within 6 months of each other, with one pretty much cancelling the other out (I am referring to the GS3 cancelling out the former flagship Galaxy Nexus). It turns out, however, that Samsung has some secrets up their sleeves in regards to the Nexus and are planning on releasing a refresher to the popular handset in a matter of months. The current GSM Galaxy Nexus, the GT-I9250, would be replaced by the GT-I9260, codenamed “Superior.”
As you can see from the chart, the display remains unchanged at 4.65 inches using Super AMOLED technology, while the processor has been bumped to from 1.2GHz to 1.5GHz. The camera is also seeing an upgrade to 1.9- and 8-megapixel cameras on the front and rear, respectively. An interesting point to notice is that the Superior aligns well with Google’s annual release cycle for Nexus devices — the Galaxy Nexus originally debuted November 2011 — and Q4 is just a few short months away.
