    Thought - couldn't Samsung/Google have gotten the hardware/ICS to mesh to the point that it ran smoothly off 1.2 ghz, and use this in lieu of a 1.5 ghz chip to help battery life? Just a random theory...anyone more technologically savvy can correct me if I'm mistaken.

    I certainly think it will be stock, and if it's not then it's a no sale for me. Multiple sources have said it will be and it certainly seems plausible at this point.

    FYI, the Droid moniker does not denote whether or not a device will be stock/bloated up. E.g. Thunderbolt is not a Droid phone but it has HTC Sense/Plenty of bloat.
    I like plausible. FYI, A Nexus Droid would be great for the masses, but in my book=a Verizon elusive. I think the Verizon version will be a Droid while in a month (give or take some days) pure nexus phones will be released. You think Google would narrow its vision to CDMA? Nah, I will stick with my information.

    Good to be on the cusp of a upgrade for a VZW costumer. We can both agree on that. If the verizon version isn't a droid, I will happily jump in because that means VZW is OUT and it is all Google. Once VZW stamps that thing droid, they have their paws on it. What it is.

    No one has proved otherwise, and reports are coming in from major networks on this. Don't shake that just yet.
    The salt reference does not imply I believe that these specs are wrong, just that BGR has in the past produced exclusives from "solid sources" that have turned out to be utter bollocks. They are, of course, not the only ones. I'm just saying, pinch of salt guys.

    I hear man. I agree. This phone is so hyped though, if these specs are true, then some of us are having our balloons deflated. Mine is still flying and if you read my comments here, I am trying to keep from thinking this phone will crush everything. Maybe I decide to keep my VZW line if it makes me feel like a good investment is to be made.

    True, BGR usually stinks when it comes to "leaks" but I give this one some cred as Kellex at droid-life states he was shown these specs a while ago, and that site has a pretty good track record.

    By Led light I assume you mean Notification, rather than flash?

    I can only assume 32gb internal would mean no SD slot, but who knows

    How so? What were the expectations exactly that were deflated? We knew all of what he wrote already. The only negative would be the 1.2 compared to the 1.5GHz cpu. What else was expected that differed from BGR wrote about?

    And yes, BGR is hit and miss with his predictions. He does get a lot of scoops but he has had some misses too, so don't take it as gospel just yet. That said, it feels like what he wrote this time is probably true.

    I wouldnt freak out about clock speed guys. I currently have a custom kernel on my Nexus S that underclocks to 880MHz and my phone flies. If XDA can do it, so can Google.

    Nice catch.

    Forgive my ignorance in phone technology, but could downclocking a 4460 to 1.2 GHz save more batter life than keeping it at 1.5 GHz? Is that even possible?
    Absolutely. On the TI site, the 4460 is rated "up to" 1.5ghz. They could have very easily just put a 1.2ghz kernel in.

    This phone will scream. No one should worry about clock speed. I also wonder why it's clocked at 1.2ghz, but it's probably just unnecessary to be at 1.5ghz right now. Real world performance is what really matters, and I have no doubts that this will outperform anything else on the market.

    I am so ready for this thing.

    My phone just out specs it on a few levels. Being confirmed that it WILL be pure Google, my balloon was never deflated. This is great news for VZW customers! AC is taking BGR seriously, look at the front page.

    Do you think chips are overrated? I sometimes do with the way devs develop on what seems to be "old hardware." I am still considering a nexus s4g. Can't beat free. So how long before ICS comes to the nexus line of yesterday?

    THIS JUST IN: Chips can be underclocked.

    Please tell me why a 1.5Ghz chip would make this phone while a 1.2Ghz chip will break it?

    I'm sorry...what phone ouspecs this on a few levels? And what are those specs? And in advance, no, you can't say the GSII's Exynos is better when no one has even used this chip yet.

    Because 1.2 ghz phones came out 6 months ago, and when I get a phone I want it to be ahead of the line. Screen might not be enough.

    I'm also still considering a nexus s4G my wife has one and it is great. Free is good too.

    ICS is likely to work on the Nexus S4G too, and so we wouldnt be missing much. Just a dual core-processor.

    The OMAP 4460 is a beast.

    Interesting that it supports camera sensors capable of 20mp captures. Not necessary, but interesting.

    1Ghz processors came out with the Nexus One and I still use my 1GHz Thunderbolt and I have yet to find anything to slow it down.

    Those 333Mhz are nothing more then for you to measure your e-peen?

    It isn't about real world performance, it's about potential. Search your feelings, and you will know this.

    That is just it, everyone gets so uptight about a processors clock speed. (I am guilty.) But I think optimization is the word here. If specs were the only thing important, then a Galaxy Note on GSM will smoke the prime everyday of the week and it is coming. Blackmanx says this device will be in all flavors, so bgr saying verizon exclusive? How long? (A droid nexus, I still can't believe it until i see it ha ha!)

    I am still in my 14 days on Sprint. While the Prime seems like a geeky good time, the specs on the nexus S seems solid, and way more importantly, "optimized." A crap ton of geeks are bummed about the primes processor, who in their right triangle & nm mind isn't? Not a huge fan of those ICS icons, gawd awful if you ask me, but that is nitpicking crap. I think I may head in a check it out. It would be a good day to walk with a Nexus S and an extra two hundred bones in the back pocket
