Samsung Nexus S / Android 2.3 spy shots

The Google Nexus One (built by HTC) wasn't exactly a success as a consumer phone, but since it became a "developers only" handset it has established a significant niche with those who want a pure Android handset unsullied by manufacturer and carrier cruft and who want the latest versions of the OS.

It's a bit of a surprise to see that there will (apparently) be a follow-up, but these spy shots of the Samsung Nexus S show a fairly large device running Android 2.3 (Gingerbread). It seems that Google might be trying to go upmarket from where they were, and this is probably a good idea.

Rumoured specs include a 4" 800 x 480 pixel screen, possibly a dual core processor with 512MB RAM, one or two gigabytes of internal memory and HD video capture, so basically a step up in size from its predecessor.

More details and spy shots are available at XDA Developers.
