Galaxy Nexus successor coming soon? [Rumors]
Information has swirled up showing the possibility of a Galaxy Nexus Sucessor with a model number GT-i9260. The original Galaxy Nexus having the number GT-i9250 leads us to believe this is the real deal coming down the pipe.
Not too much is known right now about what the new device will have, but some sleuthing done by SamMobile brought the spec sheet below back in August. We can see the 9260 features the same resolution 4.65″ Super AMOLED, however there are some great additions. Specifically the supposed SD slot which would be awesome. According to the spec sheet it shows a slightly upgraded processor at 1.5 GHz, contrary to the “ARM11″ in the User Agent Profile. The ARM11 is of unknown speed or spec, so details are still a bit scarce. An upgraded front and rear camera rounds out the extent of the improvements we know of.
My Opinion? As a current Google Galaxy Nexus owner these “minor” upgrades are not enough to make me want to jump to the rumored new Nexus. With the promise of other Nexus (Nexii plural?) phones in the works from 5 other manufacturers I would like to see what comes of them before I would even consider leaving the current Nexus. Jelly Bean has made it one heck of a phone, while not cutting edge hardware, that will last me for years.
What do you all think? Waiting for new Nexus phones? Will you take the current one or even go with a different phone all together? Let us hear in the comments.
