    While there's not consensus on the issue, by most accounts it appears to be a hardware issue and not a software issue:

    Nexus S and Galaxy S camera modules comparison - xda-developers

    I guess we'll know for sure soon, but I'm leaning HEAVILY towards no.

    1. You're comparing the Nexus S to the Galaxy S. The Galaxy S would be the original Epic. Not even close to the Galaxy Nexus.

    2. Resolution is actually software, not hardware. If the chipset supports it, high-def recording can be added. I would almost certainly bank on the Nexus S getting HD recording with ICS

    Actually, I was just linking to thread that happened to be showing why the Galaxy S can and the Nexus S can't - I compared nothing.

    However, in that thread, it speaks to hardware limitations on the Nexus S (which is repeated often in XDA threads):

    "It can't be done in real time without the hardware [sic] encoder. The phone simply doesn't have a fast [sic] enough processor to software encode HD."

    I guess we'll find out in a few weeks...

    1. The OP can't even write grammatically correct English.

    2. Every other post in that thread says it's software-controlled

    3. Explain why they added 720p recording to multiple devices in updates, including my own Droid Incredible
