Well, we knew it was coming, and we'd heard several conflicting rumors, but Japan's NTT docomo just dropped a big ol' leak in the form of a marketing poster. It confirms essentially all of BGR's initial leaked specs.

The juicy details include a 1.2GHz dual-core OMAP4460 processor (which is still very surprising, considering Samsung has never got with TI chips before), a 4.65-inch HD Super AMOLED display (which we can't wait to see), Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, and a 5.1 megapixel primary camera (not the 8MP we were hoping for). We kinda liked our other rumored specs better, but this still sounds like a pretty sweet device. Again, the real star of the show here is going to be Ice Cream Sandwich, which is still somewhat mysterious.

The poster says it will be available in November for NTT docomo, which jives with the rumor U.S. release timeframe. There's still a lot we don't know. It's rumored to be a Verizon exclusive in the U.S. and it may or may not have 4G LTE, or GSM radios to make it a world phone. All this, and more, we hope to find out at 10pm EST tonight. We'll be live-blogging as details are revealed, so make sure you check back. [Google Pad via SlashGear via This Is My Next]

This is a huge disappointment. I was expecting specs that would beat the iPhone 4S and I am only seeing something that matches in most respects, exceeds in a couple and definitely falls short on a big one and that is the camera.

I seriously was looking at this phone to replace my Nexus One. I do not see anything here that is a compelling reason to spend $600.00 for a device that my current one will do 85% of everything listed here. Perhaps I will get this for my wife, but honestly, I think she would be much happier with the iPhone 4S compared to this.

Really disappointed. (sigh)

No need to stay up late tonight.
