Are you guys in for a treat? We have the Samsung Galaxy Nexus and the Galaxy Note both right here for a little tale of the tape all on video. Both devices getting their European debut today and Samsung announcing a white version of the Galaxy Note, and that the Nexus will be available starting November 17th. We have the new Ice Cream Sandwich rocking Galaxy Nexus next to the new white Galaxy Note for a full comparison for those that have been dying to see one, check it out and all the photos after the break.
We were live at IFA when the Galaxy Note was officially unveiled and here is our hands-on from that too. Today what we have is even better — the amazingly awesome looking Galaxy Note dressed in white sitting next to its little big brother in the Galaxy Nexus. I say little because it’s smaller yet added bigger because it still happens to be rocking a 4.65″ display and the bigger newer Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. I’m sure you all know plenty about both of these awesome devices so I’ll skip the chit chat and show you our stellar photos and hands-on video.
The white Galaxy note looks incredible, with that sleek bezel and matching white stylus all in a thin 9.65mm chassis. We can’t forget the bright and vivid 5.3″ 1280 x 800 Super AMOLED HD display and 1.5 GHz dual-core processor. I’m always a little worried with the color white on a smartphone, but here its just gorgeous. Who agrees?
Then we have the Galaxy Nexus and its 4.65″ Super AMOLED HD display also rocking a high resolution — only it’s 1280 x 720 but looks equally awesome. We’ve covered this phone more than anything I can remember from the recent past and here is our initial hands-on. Again, a quick rundown of specs we have a 4.65″ display, a 1.2 GHz dual-core processor and also a very thin chassis coming in around 8.4mm on the Galaxy Nexus. Before I go any further check out the video below:
Galaxy Nexus vs White Galaxy Note hands-on
If that doesn’t make you want either of those devices, or both then I don’t know what will. Obviously with the Note we have Android 2.3 Gingerbread but we’ve been told it will in fact receive Android 4.0 ICS soon. Pair that with native stylus support in 4.0 the Galaxy Note will be one super duper experience when those two things come together. Clearly from the video the stylus support is already excellent thanks to the Wacom digitizer used by Samsung. No time frame was given on the update but Samsung did mention they’ve been working closely with Google, obviously.
Galaxy Nexus and Ice Cream Sandwich hands-on
Then we already know plenty about the Galaxy Nexus. Samsung just announced availability in Europe starting November 17th, and we are expecting a similar date for the Verizon 4G LTE model. The Samsung Galaxy Note is already for sale in parts of Europe and you can pre-order the Galaxy Nexus on Amazon.uk right now. Enjoy all of the photos in the full sized gallery below!
