For one reason or another, it wasn’t made terribly public that the Samsung Galaxy Nexus’s front-facing camera does more than meets the eye. Many new owners of the device in the UK have discovered that the camera actually shoots 720p despite the fact that no press releases or product pages (to our knowledge, anyway) mention this feature, nor did Google seem to mention it in their keynote in Hong Kong.

We’re not mad or anything, but we’re not sure how Samsung and Google could miss a prime (no pun intended) marketing opportunity – this certainly would have caught the attention of many-a consumer.

The cat’s out of the bag now, though, so be sure to consider yet another great feature when looking to purchase this device. Check out the video above showing how to get to the resolution settings in the device’s camera software (forward to the 3:45 mark) and the uploader should also have a sample video up soon.
