Possible Nexus Two Specs Include 1.2GHz CPU

Just last week we were talking about how the Nexus Two news is coming fast and hard. In the space of a week we've had rumors about a Nexus Two from Motorola, and then reports that Samsung was actually the manufacturer. Right after, we heard that Samsung would launch the Nexus Two at its Android event on November 8, and then someone provided details of their hands-on with the device. That's a lot of Nexus Two news for one week, and if today is anything to go by, this week is going to be equally as busy.

Android and Me is now talking about specs for the device, which it supposedly obtained from one of its five Nexus Two sources. Unsurprisingly, the site says that this device will pack Android 2.3, aka Gingerbread. Gingerbread is the next version of Android to be released and is supposedly scheduled to hit before the end of 2010. Really, what better way to launch the next build of Android than on the Nexus Two?

When it comes to hardware, this phone definitely doesn't disappoint. Android and Me is reporting 1.2 GHz processor; a 4-inch AMOLED display; 5-megapixel camera with autofocus and HD video capture; a front-facing camera; 512MB RAM; 16GB internal storage; support for multiple carriers (T-Mobile is mentioned specifically); Bluetooth; WiFi; and a case made from a mix of metal and plastic.

None of these specs are confirmed but with Samsung's event planned for Monday, we certainly won't have to wait long to find out all the juicy details about this Android device.

    ^ agreed. Still, it's nice to see (if it's true) these things coming with faster CPUs.

    otacon72With that display and processor? Better have a charger in your
    People have been overclocking Android phones past 1 GHz for awhile now. It apparently doesn't hurt battery life noticeably.

    otacon72Don't get me wrong the more power the better and that AMOLED I'm sure will be gorgeous but at what cost? My friend's Droid X was great to play with...for all of 45 mins until he had to charge it.
    Sorry but the Droid X dosen't have an AMOLED screen... traditional LCD screens use a backlight and block and filter the light to produce the range of colors. For each diode in an OLED, it would only consume the same power if the entire screen were always white. Black diodes consume no power at all, and all the other colors scale between the two.

    The difference between my Samsung Moment (AMOLED with 800 Mhz), which lasts 10+ hours with heavy usage, and a Nexus Two is going to be negligible... maybe shave an hour off my usage time.

    Didn't Samsung come out and deny that they are making a Nexus Two? I mean don't get me wrong, I would love a Nexus Two, but I am pretty sure you will be disappointed on the 8th
