Look what we have here, an early pre-release build of the Galaxy Nexus has apparently landed in the hands of AndroidForums.com member drandrew18 who is part of the “Samsung Mob!lers”, which he describes as “an official Samsung group of people who review, blog and share information on the latest Samsung mobile tech”. He also gives us a look at Ice Cream Sandwich running on the device and a demo of the Face Unlock feature in the videos after the break. This is probably your first up close look at the design, at it looks gorgeous, to say the least.

Last we heard the device was set to launch on various UK carriers come November 16th and 17th. However, we’ve received a tip this morning that companies are confirming Samsung UK has postponed the UK release until November 21st. Retailer Phones4U initially had the device listed for a November 16 ship date, but has now bumped it up to the 18th. We’ll have to wait a few more days to find out for sure. Until then, you can learn what you need to know about the Galaxy Nexus here.
