Alleged Galaxy Nexus successor details emerge

The first alleged details for the Galaxy Nexus successor have started trickling online and, from the sound of things, we’re in for a moderate refresh.  The information, obtained by SamMobile, advises that the codename is rumored to be “Superior” with the model number of GT-I9260.

The hardware sees improvements along a few fronts, including a dual-core 1.5GHz processor, an 8-megapixel camera, a slightly better 1.9-megapixel front-facing camera, and the addition of the microSD card.  Everything else, for now, is likely going to be the same as in the Galaxy Nexus.

Should these rumors prove to be correct, we ought to see more details uncovered over the next few weeks. If history is any indicator then we might be around two months away from getting an announcement.

As a reminder, there’s also whispers that Google may have up to five Nexus models ready to go for the fifth anniversary of Android.  Then again, if Google were to stick with one hardware maker for the next Pure Android handset, Samsung seems a likely choice.
