Courtesy of the loose lips of Japan’s leading cellular carrier, NTT DoCoMo, we now have the specifications for the Samsung Galaxy Nexus (Prime). Software-wise, there are no surprises: it will run Android 4.0,*Ice Cream Sandwich , but on the hardware front… well, there’s no easy way to put this: the Galaxy Nexus has a lower spec than the iPhone 4S and Galaxy S II, and it’s even comparable to the Nexus S in terms of graphics power. (Updated @ 23:00 EST:*The following specs have now been confirmed by Samsung and Google.)

ICS doesn't look to be as optimized as you make it sound from the hands-on vids that have been posted; it stutters and lags more than the SGS2 does with touchwiz. Still I might buy it, but just because I'm tired of waiting for updates.

GPU
Apparently the Galaxy Nexus uses the SGX540, the same GPU as the Galaxy S (one). While the Galaxy S II uses the Mali-400 GPU which seems to be on a higher spec. O.o Wouldn't it be a fairly weak combination since the phone comes with a 720p display paired with a GPU more than a year old?

Where have you seen any video with lag & stuttering?

And remember, recording a GUI that runs in 60 fps with a 30fps camera and uploading to youtube causes micro-stuttering in the video due to half frame-rate and obviously no v-sync between phone display and camera.
