The newest Android phone has been unveiled right here in China and I have to say, it looks pretty sweet.

In Hong Kong Wednesday, Google (谷歌) and Samsung (三星) showed off the newest Nexus phone, which runs the brand new Android OS called “Ice Cream Sandwich”.

The phone, official called the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, will be available in November in the U.S., Europe and Asia, including China. But the carriers for the phone have not been announced yet.

It looks to be rather big, featuring a display of 11.81 cm and a 1280×720 resolution.  It also has a lightening fast 2 GHz dual-core processor and shoots video in 1080p.

However, the 5-megapixel rear facing camera and 1.3 megapixel front facing camera may disappoint some.

After the death of Apple’s Steve Jobs (史蒂夫·乔布斯), we talked about how popular Apple (苹果) products are in China. By the way, the unveiling of the Galaxy Nexus was delayed out of respect for the passing of Jobs.

Will you be looking at getting one of these or one of the just released iPhone 4S? Maybe something else? Tell us in the comments.

Here’s a first look review of by CNet Asia.

Here is what some others are saying about the new phone on Weibo.

Flatfish: I anticipate the new Android Nexus Prime, I heard that the level of clarity of the screen is roughly the same as the Retina Display of the iPhone.

GeorgesChen: Today really seems to be the “New Phone Sales and Promotion Day.” Samsung and Google unveiled the new Android system operated “ice-cream sandwich” phone. They want to become a real “iPhone killer.” At the same time, Motorola is promoted the Droid Razr, an international super thin smart phone. I heard that “It can’t get any sharper, any sharper and it can kill people!”   With the Apple iPhone 4S, which one will you choose?

    the latest Android OS should be a great enhance but it seems to be useful to only some smartphones with Search engine Nexus being the full beneficiary. I geeting a few problems to improvement my Samsung a lot of applications are not workin and so i switched back together with works fine. Not sure whether the manufactores will benefit from this join among Google and Motorola.
