Leaked specs could be showing a revamped Nexus

SamMobile.com have unearthed some specs of a peculiar Samsung device that has a model number I9260. The device is similar to the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, offering a 4.65" SuperAMOLED display but raises the bar with two Cortex-A9 cores clocked at 1.5 GHz (compared to 1.2GHz on the Galaxy Nexus), an 8 MP camera on the back and 1.9 MP one on the front. The smartphone reportedly comes with 16 GB of on-board storage and... wait for it... a microSD card slot.

The HSPA Galaxy Nexus carries the model number I9250 so if rumored I9260 makes it to the market it could be a slightly updated version of the Google purebred by Samsung.

Still, you would do well to take this information with a pinch of salt as this could just be a Samsung device that will come with TouchWiz and not a part of the Nexus family. Also it strikes us as odd that the device in question features a microSD card, which is unlike the last two Nexus devices. And we wonder about the dual-core processor - the next Nexus device should follow the Nexus 7 slate and offer at least a Tegra 3 quad-core chip.

The new nexus (like the previous 2) will NOT have the 4 core, the first 2 I think had TI *(well not tergra 2 i know), I think the new nexus will have the S4 pro and will smoke the SGS3
