Description

Nexus S is the first smartphone co-developed by Google and Samsung. The terminal was officially announced in December 2010 and it was made available for purchase later the same month.

Samsung Nexus S was the first smartphone in the world to come pre-loaded with Android 2.3 Gingerbread and it can be upgraded up to Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean. It measures 123.9 x 63 x 10.9 mm and has a weight of 129 grams.

The device sports a 4.0-inch Super AMOLED display with 480 x 800 resolution, 233 ppi pixel density, and oleophobic coating. It’s powered by a Hummingbird chipset with single-core 1 GHz Cortex A8 processor and PowerVR SGX540 GPU.

Samsung Nexus S also arrives with 512 MB of RAM and 16 GB of native storage. Unfortunately, it doesn’t have support for microSD expansion. On the back of the device there’s a 5 MP primary camera with autofocus, LED flash, and 480p video recording, while the front panel accommodates a VGA sensor.

In terms of connectivity it arrives with Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, DLNA, hotspot, Bluetooth 2.1, GPS, NFC, and microUSB 2.0. It’s kept alive by a 1,500 mAh battery which should be enough for 6 hours of 3G talk time.
