Galaxy Nexus – coming soon to Three.

Android fans will be delighted to know that the Galaxy Nexus will be the first device in the UK to launch with the very latest version of Android, 4.0, also known as Ice Cream Sandwich. Ice Cream Sandwich includes the latest innovations in Android software, including Face Unlock, which uses facial recognition to unlock your phone, and integration with the new Google+ social network

The Galaxy Nexus also features a true 4.65” HD resolution screen (1280×720) with Samsung’s new HD super AMOLED technology. This allows for stunning video playback, HD gaming and vibrant pictures. HD super AMOLED means that your content is visible outside even in the brightest of conditions and has amazing viewing angles.

With a 1.2Ghz dual core processor delivering superfast graphics and increased power efficiency, slim line design, front and rear cameras, this metallic silver device is set to impress. The Galaxy Nexus also supports HSPA+ and RX diversity, so when Three’s HSPA+ network upgrade is completed at the end of the year, using the internet on the phone will be even quicker

Sylvia Chind, head of handsets at Three said, “At Three we love firsts, so we’re excited to be bringing our customers the first Android Ice Cream Sandwich phone. It’s also great to add another HSPA+ enabled device to our range, which will see the Galaxy Nexus’ features be brought to life with Three’s award-winning HSPA+ enabled network.”
