Samsung Galaxy Nexus Launched

The much awaited Samsung Galaxy Nexus (or previously known as Nexus Prime) was announced today. Amazingly, it spots a much bigger screen again with 4.65" Super AMOLED HD with a resolution of 1280x720. Most importantly, the Galaxy Nexus spots the new Android 4.0 dubbed Ice Cream Sandwich.
As rumored earlier, the rear camera is only 5MP and the front facing camera is 1.3MP.
One would ask, what is the difference between Samsung Galaxy SII and Samsung Galaxy Nexus?
Besides the bigger display, is the Galaxy Nexus better than Galaxy SII in terms of hardware specification? We now know that the Galaxy Nexus will be running on the latest Android Ice Cream Sandwich, will the Galaxy SII be given the honor to power up with the similar OS?
Brand new features spotted on the Android 4.0 is the NFC-based Android Beam and the Facial Unlock.
One unique hardware feature in the Galaxy Nexus worth mentioning is the barometer.
Expected launch in Asia is November 2011.
