New Samsung Galaxy Nexus Hands-On Video Surfaces

I hate to do this to you, guys. The Samsung Galaxy Nexus event is only a few more hours away and if you don’t like spoilers then you may want to stop reading and go back from whence you came. Another hands-on video of the Samsung Galaxy Nexus has surfaced on YouTube this time, showing off the boot animation, side view, back shots and some of the Ice Cream Sandwich UI.

It’s only two and half more hours ’til the main event and you really don’t wanna spoil it for yourself… do you? It’s like viewing the bride on your wedding day! While there’s not too much here we haven’t already seen, sometimes it’s nice to leave something to the imagination. Who am I kidding… Check it out and leave your thoughts in the comments!

  • jclokwork

    drooling a little….

  • Lance Young

    At least the guy could have turned it so we could see it easier. jeez! lol

  • Jaime Ramirez

    so smooth omg i want i want/ if you didnt see the video its really smooth and fast, the buttons on the button rotate so if your phone is landscape the buttons rotate. it said android 4.0… when you go into a app the bottom buttons dissapear and i guess he hit something on the bottom to go back to home IT LOOK REALLY GOOD GUYS 2hrs left!!!!!!

    • Ethan Bailey

      lol.. love the excitement

  • Aiman Farooq

    Not bad, didn’t reveal much more than we already know though. Excited to see what Google’s got hidden up it’s sleeve though :D

  • Cipher Zero

    I want to have one in my hands before I pass any judgement. The boot animation is hideous, I hope the app drawer has options as I hate paginated app drawers. Of course, there are alternate launchers for that. Are updates still coming from Google, or do we all have to wait on Samsung as well?
    I hate the “Galaxy Nexus” name, I prefer Nexus Prime. I guess I’ll find out soon enough, like everyone else just what the end result is. At least they remembered the SD slot.

  • Daniel Bevis

    Looks pretty coolio. Flashy [if that’s your prerogative].

    My newly acquired Samsung Galaxy S will likely be the last phone I ever need tbh [three is the charm]. And I know that it’ll never get to Android 4.0 [heck, I doubt it’ll see 2.7, officially, at this rate], but oh wells! -shrugs-

    Enjoy the show guys and gals. :D

  • GawkerRedesignSucks

    Oh HELLZ yeah!

  • Joseph A. Yager

    It does look tasty. It might just be me, but watching someone else slowly look at stuff at random drives me nuts. I want those people to somehow know what I want to see!

  • max

    Looks pretty damn great

  • Josh W

    not impressed ill settle for a GS2 or wait for a 3 if its not a real HD screen

    • alecgale

      you gay bro?

      • Josh W

        yes…yes i am gay guys like high tech stuff too im probably smarter than u too

        • alecgale

          are you saying that you’re probably smarter than me bc i’m black?

          • MrJigolo

            I lol’d

          • toomuchgame441

            He did man, lets put on our blue bandanas and show him whats up

  • Antwan Little

    unless this guy has some of the worlds largest hands that doesn’t look like a 4.7 inch screen

    • commonsenseplease

      Agreed…what’s up with that? I’m disappointed :( ICS looks awesome, but I wanted a 4.7 screen.

    • Sway Medina

      Yea, i just held my Infuse… aaaand it looks a lot bigger, or my hands are just very small.

    • Khoi

      First of all, I’m glad it’s not ridiculously huge like the Infuse, but it is a 4.7 inch screen. You have to factor in the aspect ratio. At 720p, it’s a pretty long screen but not too wide. It’s like how the old iPhones had a 4:3 ratio: wide screens but the screen sizes themselves were pretty small.

  • frankie

    Amazing. I need this phone

  • Guest

    Nice! Loving the blue green color.. Just wish they made the bezel on the bottom part smaller.. So what’s gonna be down there? Logo? Or just empty?

    This is nice though! :D

    • derpydoo

      It isn’t all Bezel but rather it is more screen with software buttons.

  • James Friedman

    God that baby is bright!

  • Fake Faker

    if you put it on 480p, the screen will rotate to normal orientation

  • jt O’Brien

    RAZR or Nexus hmmmmmmm Kevlar and 7.1mm vs Curved glass and 9mm seems to be the hardest part for me.

    • James Friedman

      Don’t forget NFC which may be key for staying ahead of the loop. I know that I will at least give it a try and see if it is a usable form of purchasing.

    • Adam Truelove

      Are you kidding me!!! Vanilla ICS vs Motoblur Gingerbread!! qHD vs HD!! There is no comparison between the Nexus and the RAZR. Nexus all the way!!

  • TzuDohNihm

    I like that the Notification Bar panel is opaque like menus on latter day TV’s.

  • Ben Baranovsky

    And….It’s gone. Video is now private.

  • Fred G. Vader

    WTF! Comes up saying “This video is private”!

  • Asimoalex

    its gone it says its private wtf ?

  • su2lly

    It’s clear to me that the guy was somewhere where he wasn’t supposed to be. Nor did he want to let anybody know he was filming.

  • Brian Robinson

    Tried to watch, video is private for me.

  • izi

    Wow… !!!! cant.wait for the launch… Ics loks like tron theme. Video is abit blurry though… So from the looks of it there will be no physical buttons on it…still hoping to have the led notification…

  • WynterEnd

    Says video is private…another link please??? PLEASE!??!

  • Travillion

    I’ve seen so much ambiguous, blurry-cam footage that I’m afraid when I see some actual real footage tonight I’m not going to recognize the device I’ve fallen in love with.

  • Tyler Krason

    This video been seen anywhere else? It is saying “video is private”. Wondering if its been posted elsewhere.

  • Travillion

    Also, the backside says i9250, whereas we know the Verizon G-Nex is a different model number. I wonder how similar this device is to the one that will be unveiled tonight.

  • Ahmad Osman

    can’t see it. It says this video is private! what does this mean?

  • Ethan Bailey

    biiiiiiiiiiiiiiitchhh!! i missed it! now it’s private :(

  • joejoe509

    Ah crap. And… it’s private.

    • molomolo

      I guess the same video here:

      • Ethan Bailey

        thanks :)

  • James Friedman

    What’s up with all the force closes?

  • coolair

    Can’t view the video, it’s said “this video is private” :-(

  • Max Hernandez

    any body else get the its private banner when trying to watch the video or is it just me?

  • ivorycruncher

    Video is marked private. =(

    Guessing somebody got a bit in a hurry to upload their video and forgot to flag it as private, probably would have gotten in trouble if they hadn’t (if they didn’t already). Oh well, we’ll be seeing plenty of it in just a couple hours or so.

  • 84guy

  • Jinwon Sung

    Looks nice! But what’s the source of this video?

  • Lux Ferro

    I copied the cached FLV file before I closed the page after viewing it and hearing it was made prive

  • Yorick Reuvekamp

    This is Yorick from Androidworld. We have a backup right here:

  • bob

    I’m started to believe more and more this phone and the one that ends up on Verizon are gonna be completely different devices.

  • Benjamin Rubenstein
  • youareme7

    5mp camera is true. That sensor better rock hard for them to down-res from the widely praised galaxy s2 sensor.

    • Bon K

      supposedly CMOS sensor. I am assuming others have CCD sensors.

  • wills96

    Looks fantastic, like Google’s finally added some needed polish. Can’t wait to get my hands on it.

  • Tq745

    Video is on Engadget

  • Jstacked3

    it’s amazing how all these leaked videos are taken with the worst cameras/optics…who’s carrying cameras from the 80s lol
