Google Nexus 2 gets Android 2.3 Gingerbread

First handset packing next-gen Android OS coming Nov 8th?

Google Nexus Two whispers: designed by Samsung, packs Android 2.3

More details are surfacing on Google's latest hush-hush incarnation of its own-brand smartphone, the Nexus Two. The reportedly Samsung-designed follow-up to last year's Nexus One has been tipped to be the first handset on the market to come running Android 2.3 - or Gingerbread, as the kids call it.

The updated Gingerbread OS is rumoured to include an updated user interface, improved social networking capabilities and access to an Android music store, although Google remains tight-lipped on whether the handset even exists.

From what details have been leaked so far, the Google Nexus Two looks and feels a lot like the Samsung Galaxy S, with a 4" AMOLED touchscreen and a black gloss plastic shell. New additions include the now compulsory front-facing camera for all those video calls you're itching to make.

The Google Nexus Two is expected to get its big debut at a Samsung press event in New York on November 8th. More details when we have them.
