All you smartphones users who can’t get in line with the iPhone crowd, and just can’t part with the Android OS, here’s your latest option — the Samsung Galaxy Nexus.

Google and Samsung recently announced the long-awaited Galaxy Nexus, which is the first smartphone to feature the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system. In addition to the OS upgrade, the new Nexus has amped up its resolution with an HD Super AM-OLED screen display, added a five-megapixel auto-focus rear camera with LED flash, boasts 1080p video recording capabilities and playback, and offers several other added features bundled into it.

Other features include an accelerometer, a compass, a gyro, a proximity sensor and even a barometer. It boasts the Android Beam, allowing users to easily share contacts, websites, apps, maps and Youtube videos with others close by.

The Galaxy Nexus is powered with 1GB of RAM, optional 12 or 32GB of internal storage space, and a 1,750mAh battery.

The Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich OS is expected to bring about a completely renovated user interface with improved multi-tasking features, notifications, NFC support, and a better web browsing experience. Also, it will also feature a variety of new social media and connectivity software upgrades, in conjunction with Google Mobile services.

The smartphone is expected to drop sometime in November. However, no release date has been announced.
