Samsung Galaxy Nexus coming to India in March

Samsung’s Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich-based smartphone, Galaxy Nexus, is likely to arrive in India in March. The launch of the Samsung Galaxy Nexus was pushed till January after Samsung said it had “many products” scheduled for December. Samsung India on its official Twitter account said that that the smartphone is going to be launched in March but didn’t supply exact dates. In another post, Samsung India promised to give updates about the Nexus smartphone once it got more information. The official registration page of the handset, however, still has the product listed as “coming soon”.

To refresh your memory, the Samsung Galaxy Nexus sports a 4.65-inch HD Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 1280×720 pixels, a 5MP rear autofocus camera with LED flash and 1080p HD video recording capability, a 1.3MP front-facing camera, 16GB or 32GB of inbuilt storage expandable via microSD, choice of HSPA+ or LTE connectivity, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n connectivity, NFC connectivity, USB2.0 connectivity, a 3.5mm audio jack, a gyroscope, a barometer, and a 1,750 mAh battery to power it all.

It now appears that the Samsung Galaxy Nexus may not be the first ICS-based smartphone in India. Huawei’s Honor is reportedly arriving in India in February with the ICS update. It’s notable that other manufacturers such as LG and Sony are also rolling out ICS update for their respective premium smartphones.
