By Posted 26 Nov 2010, 04:47

After various minor leaks of the Samsung Nexus S handset, we have a treat for you now, as the handset has once again appeared online, but this time revealing a lot more about the OS it will be running – Android 2.3 Gingerbread.

As reported from Engadget, fresh images of the Nexus S have been obtained by the guys over at XDA Developer Forums, and for the first time ever, they give us a solid look at the Gingerbread UI, although the picture quality isn’t too great.

Thanks to the new images, we now have some more spec details for the Nexus S. Potential features include a 4-inch (or higher) SuperAmoled2 display screen, a Dual Core Orion 1GHz CortexA9 processor, either 512 or 328MB of Ram, 720P HD Video, Open GL support, and a screen resolution of 800×480. We already know that the Samsung Nexus S will have a 5MP camera – more details on that here.

Some of the screenshots show the new Gingerbread calling menu, as well as the system settings, seemingly confirming that this is actually the Nexus S and it runs OS version 2.3.

Check out the pictures over at XDA here, they even state that more pictures are on the way – so that’s something to look forward to. Let us know your thoughts on Gingerbread, do you like the UI or not?
