The Galaxy Nexus display lacks the Plus

But you really shouldn’t notice it

Amid all the buzz surrounding the launch of Googles latest flagship smartphone, eagle-eyed technophiles have caught wind of the new phones lack of a ‘Plus’ on the screen spec sheet, which many of Samsung’s latest creations proudly tout.

Its said the Galaxy Nexus will use PenTile technology, which means pixels will share RGB components with others around them. Super AMOLED Plus, on the other hand, has all pixels with their own RGB components. The folks over at engadget say this will lead to worse color renditions and reduced sharpness.

But lets hold on for a second here. How much does it matter in reality? You do after all, get a 4.65″ HD display and if previous Nexus products have kept you happy then you have no reason to worry. Also, the smartphone is not out officially yet, and this could easily be rectified by the time it hits stores.

Which brings me to an important question. Do the specs need to be on the cutting-edge, each one, every time? What do you think.
