The rumor mill is turning and twisting in regards to the Samsung Galaxy Nexus. The device seems to be getting more and more press time and I can’t say I’m bothered by this, on the contrary even. This time around we are revisiting the leaked Samsung Galaxy Nexus benchmark that surfaced around the time the smartphone has been announced in Hong Kong. Why are we going back there ? Because we feel this rather interesting info has been lost in the shuffle. There are a number of things you have to consider in this situation, but we’ll get to that!
The Samsung Galaxy Nexus got benchmarked with GLBenchmark and while we know that the smartphone comes with an HD display, the benchmark shows that the test ran on 1196 x 720 pixels, which means that the on-screen buttons were lurking there as well, taking up 84 x 720 pixels. Check out the benchmark below.
Now the test results themselves aren’t remarkable at all, the Samsung Galaxy S2 managing to take it down by miles, but there are a few elements we must take into account. We are dealing with a pre-production model, so certain aspects are not in their final form, there’s also the software element (it’s not a flavor of Android we will encounter on its release date as I’m sure Google is making all sorts of last minute tweaks and changes) and the list can go on.
Samsung Galaxy Nexus Release Date
Well, most rumors and leaks are pointing towards a November 10th Galaxy Nexus release date at Verizon (leaked Verizon MAP, and a leaked internal memo). However, recent info around the net puts the US release of the Galaxy Nexus only after the European release date (after the Black Fryday weekend to be more precise).
Of course there are many more rumors regarding to this smartphone’s availability so check out out Samsung Galaxy Nexus release date and specs guide.
