Samsung Google Nexus S: specs and pics outed

Nexus One successor detailed in string of leaks

Get excited. The sequel to the Nexus One is imminent.

Google might have killed off the much-loved Nexus One, and with it claimed that it wouldn’t be going down the same road of offering its own Android phone again. But it seems the Big G has had a change of heart, with the now-mythologised Samsung Google Nexus S finally making an appearance online.

The new phone, also known as the less snappy GT-i9020, has been papped by avid gadget fans, as well as being mentioned in inventory lists from tech retail colossus Best Buy.

Further leaks claim that T-Mobile will be selling the cell in the US. The Nexus S will apparently rock a 5 megapixel camera, along with the “pure Google experience”, which essentially means Android minus any skins or bloatware.

There’s set to be 7.2 Mbps HSPA support, along with GSM support, with bands that suggest it’ll be up for grabs on these shores as well as across the pond.

An official announcement is expected any day now, as Google prepares to unleash the latest version of its OS, Gingerbread. Ready to drop your hard-earned on this new phone? Or want the other Samsung Gingerbread phone, also leaked today? Tell us over on our Facebook and Twitter pages.
