It’s official, Samsung is bringing the Nexus S to India and the launch date is just a few days away, or so our sources tell us. Initially a mailer went out saying that the Nexus S was to be launched on March 25th 2011, with prices quoted at Rs. 30,400, but of course that never happened. It’s already been showcased on Flipkart.com on pre-order at Rs. 27,999 which does make the above mentioned pricing seem very realistic.
In case you missed it, here’s a quick look at the specs –
- 4-inch Super Clear LCD screen sporting a 480 x 800 pixel resolution
- 3G, EDGE/GPRS, Wi-Fi with DLNA capabilities
- GPS with A-GPS support
- Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR with A2DP, USB 2.0
- 5 megapixel camera with autofocus and LED flash
- 16GB inbuilt storage (no word on microSD support but most likely it will be absent)
So stay tuned to tech2 for updates on the Nexus S launch. It’s also possible that Samsung might also launch the Galaxy S II at the same time. When we know you’ll know. And in case you're wondering, this is no April Fool's prank.
