    I am not a photo enthusiast but I did notice this could be our confirmation of the name: Galaxy Nexus.

    Take nothing for granted, these guys have pre-release hardware, the name is not set in stone.

    Cannot really tell, need a full res pic to do a 100% crop. I'm sure it will be great though. Samsung delivers when it comes to smartphone cameras, imo.

    It's gonna be Galaxy Nexus. I just hope it's vanilla ICS and is a real Nexus (updates-wise).

    Sincerely I like to make some shots with the phone, in recent years the most important shots of my life was made with phones since is the only camera I have always with me.
    Hope that the prime will make a good job here.

    It was taken from Google+ so there's a high chance the picture quality dropped when uploading.

    Even if the images were compressed and degraded, I think they look pretty good for what they are. Much more so then my Bionic.

    Im just a noob at histograms, but it doesn't look bad for a phone cam pic. If I were to critique it, I'd say it was a tad underexposed.

    If it's better than the charge's then we have an amazing camera. The charge's is very very good, this seems to have a lower f, which is killer for low light shots! Now we're on to something.

    The only thing I can take away from these two shots is the camera seems to be doing a good job of color-balance indoors, and it seems to have a fairly low f-stop, both of which are good things.

    I gotta ask...why is the picture only 3mp?

    Also, it sounds like that slashgear article took two rumor mill specs and blended them, LOL.

    Yeah it's hard to tell anything and what's worse is that Google+ does that to photos. I HATE how they kill the resolution of photo uploads!!!

    I thought everyone was saying megapixels weren't that important for quality. If so, shouldn't one be able to judge its quality based on what's shown?

    No. MP aren't a big deal that is correct to a point. A 5MP camera with a good lense is just as good as an 8MP camera with an ok lense. You won't see the pixels unless you wanted to make a poster basically. I used to work in a Photo Lab in my younger days and dealt with digital photography all the time and you really won't see pixels on 8x10 and below.

    The issue with Google+ is they compress and destory the integrity of photos. Taking a picture that was 5-8MP and compressing it down to "3MP" ruins the quality. So no you really can't judge a camera shot from a pic on Google+.

    My Thunderbolt has the 8MP camera on it and when I post pics to FB or other sites they look GREAT. When I upload them to Google+ they don't look so hot anymore. Something they need to change quick IMO.

    Personally I think it's going to be called the Nexus Prime. But that could simply be a code name and then Galaxy Nexus the retail name.

    Are we sure samsung uk doesn't mean that it is coming to uk sooner? It is releasing here in the us first right? I'm just playing devil's advocate here, really...

    google should improve their way to market phone.
    SE is one of the smallest company this days (I'm sad to admit it) and they sell worlwide from day one.

    Can't understand why google have problems.

    Because the site resizes images that are too large.

    Doubt that it will be US only at first. I'd think they will release it on one carrier for a very short time and most of Europe as well. Then they will add more carriers in the US and worldwide I'm sure. It would be crazy if they didn't release it to multiple countries starting from day 1.

    Hmm, hard to tell. Looks like the pic of the Apple store has some serious blooming on the whites, but that's generally due to people putting their greasy fingers all over the lens. It's also a shot of a really high contrast area with dark shadows from the leaves of a tree and other really bright highlights where the sun is poking thru. That's about the hardest situation for a camera's sensor to capture. Also, like any cell phone camera, some pics look great, other look like absolute crap.

    My verdict: inconclusive (can't be any worse than the camera on my Evo 3d tho)
