The handset has a 4.65 inch Super AMOLED screen with pixels of 316ppi. This is one of the fastest phones in delivering pixel densities.
It has a resolution of 720 x 1280 and is protected by the scratch resilient Gorilla Glass. It can last up to 12 hours of calling time with a battery that can deliver better performance than other 4G phones.
It is equipped with a 1.2 GHz Cortex A9 CPU and it has an internal memory of 32 GB on full gigabyte of RAM. It has a front camera of 1.3 MP which is good for video calls and self-portraits while its back camera has 5 megapixels with an LED flash. The camera has features that can be seen from high tech digital cameras and its video function can capture HD shots of 1080p quality.
The Galaxy Nexus has wireless functions too with the latest Bluetooth 3.0 and a Wi-Fi Network. The micro USB port allows the phone to project videos in other monitors and it also allows it to charge. It has a microphone that cancels out noise and a voice command function that allows users to dial, record and do other things without the use of their fingers when navigating.
