Yesterday, when Google officially announced the new Nexus S with Android 2.3 Gingerbread, it only unveiled the smartphone’s launch dates for the US and the UK.
However, the Nexus S will certainly be available in other markets, although not this year.
For example, Samsung Russia says the Nexus S will be available to Russian customers in February 2011. Surprisingly, it looks like the Russian version won’t have a Super AMOLED display (like the US and UK editions), but a Super Clear LCD one – the same used by Samsung for its new Wave II S8530.
In case you’re worried that Super Clear LCD isn’t as good as Super AMOLED, you shouldn’t: Mobile-review has recently compared the two display types, and it seems that the Super Clear LCD screen is “excellent”, although “it consumes more energy than Super AMOLED.”
I assume the Nexus S will come with a Super Clear LCD screen not only in Russia, but also in other European countries.
