Samsung Australia late this afternoon confirmed that the Nexus S will be coming to Australia.

In a prepared statement, the company said it was still reviewing its options in how to bring in and would announce more details at a later stage.

The phone was announced in the US yesterday and is the first to feature Google’s new Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) operating system.

Whether the phone becomes the hit the Nexus One (essentially the HTC Desire) will be interesting, particularly given that the Nexus S has no external storage option. The phone comes with 16GB of fixed Flash storage only.

The Nexus S is built essentially on the Samsung Galaxy S platform with the same 1GHz Samsung Hummingbird processor. The four-inch super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen has 800×480-pixel resolution and two image sensors – a front-capturing VGA unit and a 5MP sensor on the rear.

The phone will capture 720p (1280×720-pixel) resolution video at up to 30fps with the rear sensor.

At this stage, no local pricing has been announced and no carriers have been mentioned.
