If you haven’t heard about Antoine Brieux/NAK Studio, it’s a real shame, since he’s a talented designer and I suggest you click his name and check out his work on our website. Now he has a fresh concept for us, the Galaxy Nexus Black S, a beautiful render that shows us how the future of Google phone flagships may look like.

It’s a pretty wide device, that packs a big 4.9 inch Super AMOLED+ display with 720p resolution and runs Android 4.0 ICS. It weighs 153 grams, measures 8.43 mm in thickness and also offers HSPA+, WiFi, Bluetooth, 32/64GB of storage, plus a 2050 mAh battery. The brain of the Galaxy Nexus Black S is a 1.4 GHz quad core processor, maybe an Exynos, maybe a future Snapdragon from Qualcomm. NFC, an accelerometer and a buttonless design fill in the blanks here, as well as 1.5GB of RAM, a plunge that no company has dared to make on the memory side so far.

The case is all aluminium unibody and you’ve got a virtual SIM card with PC adaptor included (not sure what that means). There’s a 12 megapixel camera at the back with continuous autofocus and a 3.2MP sensor upfront for videocalls. The standard 3 capacitive buttons are placed below the display and the case is slightly curved, just like the Galaxy Nexus unit from 2011. The side area of the handset reminds me a bit of the Xperia Play, if I may say so. It’s got a great metallic look that everyone will love.
