The super cyclone which hit the American coast this past week swept a lot along with it but Google looked in no mood to face any sort of event annihilation as it moved out of the cards and announced the next generation Nexus devices to the world. Both of them being marvelously carved out pieces of beauty boast the most robust chispets of the present generation of droids.
To Begin with, let’s start with the introduction to the latest additions to the Droid power-grid.
Google Nexus 4
Apologies for being a bit late to the occasion, to be very honest, we were already in the hunt! Putting a confirmatory stand to all the coverage on the Nexus 4 that we brought to you, Taming down the nature’s conspiracy, the Google Nexus is now officially here. The successor to the highly successful Samsung Galaxy Nexus got it’s share of announcements done by Google with the alleged Android 4.2 Jelly Bean OS on-board( No Key lime pie this time!).
The 4.7” Nexus device from the house of the Korean manufacturer has got a lot of things on the charts to share with it’s closest sibling, the LG Optimus G, the Google Nexus 4 boasts the same or odd configuration viz. the Snapdragon S4 processor with it’s four krait cores ticked at 1.5Ghz of clockspeed, Adreno 320 GPU , 2Gigabytes of RAM and the 8MP/1.3Mp camera combo on-board as well as the HD display whose 318ppi count ensures some eye-popping action over the 4.7 inches of screen estate.
The Nexus phone will be available in two variants viz. an 8GB one along with a 16GB one, whichever suits your desire. The only feature which takes it ahead of all the competition is the fact that this phone is a Nexus! Clarifying further, It carries on the legacy of tasting out the latest of droid confectionery even before the league could hear about it. With stock Android 4.2, this device is seriously a true successor to the Nexus line up of super cool smartphones by Google.
Google Nexus 10
The much awaited answer to all the bragging rights done on the part of the retina display by apple, The Google Nexus 10, pictures of which were leaked previously is finally here! Officially this time. The 10.1” slate manufactured by the king of the droid market, the makers of the Skyrocketed Galaxy series, Samsung, boasts a jaw dropping pixel density of a whopping 299ppi on a Super-PLS TFT unit which easily bests out the critically acclaimed and potentially applauded Retina Display by Apple.
“Its not showing off if you don’t back it up!” This phrase seems valid enough to explain the efforts put into this amazing 10-incher by Samsung. The classy exteriors and the out of the world display unit is nicely backed up by some beefy configurations on the inside. Running on Samsung’s very own Exynos 5250 chipset, the dual core unit rocks two cortex-A15 cores clocked at a zippy 1.7Ghz of clockspeed along with the new generation Mali GPU, the Mali-T604and 2GB RAM should be capable enough to easily race past the current chipsets including the dual core Krait ones.
Planned to ship with Android 4.2 out of the box along with a 5MP/1.9MP imaging combo in 16/32Gb variants, this sure could turn out to be a deal sealer for the potential buyers. Further, boasting the Nexus moniker gives it an additional stand ahead of the competition. We’ll come back to that later.
