Samsung has revealed in a press statement issued today (7 December 2011) that the new Galaxy Nexus Android smartphone which it built for Google will go on sale in South Africa from “early Q1 2012” at a recommended retail price of R6,999 – R7,299.

Vodacom brought Google’s previous Nexus S handset to South Africa, and the network operator told MyBroadband in October that the Galaxy Nexus may launch locally as soon as February 2012.

Virgin Mobile said that they might also be getting a small volume of devices.

The device features a Texas Instruments 1.2GHz dual core ARM Cortex-A9 processor, a PowerVR graphics unit, 1GB RAM, and 16 or 32GB of internal storage.

It also has a 5 megapixel (MP) camera on the back and a secondary 1.3MP front-facing camera.

What sets the Galaxy Nexus apart however, is its massive 4.65-inch 720p HD Super AMOLED display.

The table below outlines the key specifications of the Galaxy Nexus:
