The camera is not a 8 megapixel camera, it is an 5 megapixel sensor with 720p video recording.
Secondly it has been confirmed by XDA-DEVs, The SoC used is 1 GHz Dual Core Cortex A9 "Orion" with integrated high performing "Mali" GPU by ARM
Anonymous, 18 Nov 2010I don't know if the CPU will be Samsung's Orion or Hummingbird, or Qualcomm's Snapdragoni've heard that google nexus using processor below 1GHz.. is that true?? if it use Snapdragon then it will use 1GHz processor isn't it? so it will be high tech mobile phone.. hope so... cmiiw
Updates will be out first since this is 2nd generation Nexus. It's a developer phone.
good luck on getting the updates on a samsung phone. they will be delayed for months while the first true nexus will get them immediately
george, 21 Nov 2010 Come on...Iphone 4 in front buy a mile...way ahead. No competition. Sorry buy this is the tr... moreiPhone 4? With its outdated retina display, inferior camera, featureless operating system, lack of video calling, irritating proprietary ports, and flashless browser? How is that superior?
This is certainly an iPhone 4 killer.
iPhone 4 is really miles behind this.
And its Gingerbread!
So iPhone 4 is going to struggle even with iOS 4.2.
I thought the main camera was going to be 5 MP? Everything else I've read has said 5...
Come on...Iphone 4 in front buy a mile...way ahead. No competition. Sorry buy this is the truth and a fact.
waver, 20 Nov 2010not good looking In my opinion it looks great! The specs are good too.
I hope this time around Google has a better worldwide distribution channel. I'd like to buy this phone at my local phone shop, not via internet.
samsung is the only hardware supplier therefore all the OS updates will be done by Google. Just hope that Google puts this phone into a right set of orders so that everybody will be happy in the end LOL :)

The Nexus One is a very durable phone and well designed however it has its issues such as switching between edge and 3g problems. The Nexus S I expect will be the best phone on the market. Samsungs galaxy s phones are some of the best phones on the market so i dont know why people keep putting them down. I was going to buy the vibrant but i dont like carrier phones and i was turned off by Tmobile opting to carry it without a front facing cam. Being able to get timely updates of android will be my biggest reason for getting this phone. I have seen conflicting specs about this phone so i cant judge the leaks but going by googles record its going to be special. if it will have a dual core processor like some rumors suggest then this phone will be ahead of all.
Check out this hands on review of the Samsung Nexus S I9020 or the Google Nexus 2.
It's a pity people do not recognize the Hardware capabilities of Samsung. Not only that, but most are also ignorant of the fact that since it's a Google phone, it will not carry the Samsung tag.
Samsung will supply the hardware piece to Google, and Google will be solely responsible for updating the software on the phone, not Samsung.
Please make sure you research a lot before blatantly posting comments.
Hope google dont mess it up this time by making Nexus S available only on Google online store.
Yes, this phone is for Google (Nexus S or 2). Look at the picture of Google CEO Schmidt holds up an unannounced Android phone at "Web 2.0 Summit" at the Palace Hotel in downtown San Francisco. You'll definitely know they are the same phone (shape and curve) if u compare this one with Schmidt's unannounced phone!!!
