Samsung today officially announced the specifications for the newest member of the Nexus family - Galaxy Nexus. The announcement closely matches what we've been anticipating for some time now, including a TI OMAP 4460 SoC at 1.2 GHz, 720p Super AMOLED HD display, HSPA+ or optional LTE connectivity and a few other things. We've put together a table with the specs handed out by Samsung at the event.

The profile of the Galaxy Nexus matches the teaser photos that Samsung has been pushing out, including a thin curved profile with a thickness of 8.94 mm at the thinnest point. Samsung also stressed that although the display size has increased, the phone hasn't gained much in terms of outline thanks to a reduced bezel size of just 4.29 mm on the left and right. Of course, the device will be host to the newest verison of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich when it launches.
Samsung has announced that the Galaxy Nexus will be available sometime in November, and we look forward to getting some hands on time with the device and giving it a full review.
