Samsung Galaxy Nexus Features:

Boasting a dual-core 1.2GHz processor and a 720p 4.65inch display the Galaxy Nexus is the first phone to have what's regarded as a truly HD screen. With a 5MP snapper on the back and a 1.3MP camera on the back the Galaxy Nexus also features facial-recognition which uses the front-facing camera to unlock the phone.

Most notable of course is the fact this is the first Android Ice Cream Sandwich phone with Google's brand-new Tablet/Phone OS built-right in. With features such as a completely new UI and entirely redesigned apps Android 4.0 is packed full of new functions.
