South Korean Galaxy Nexus Owners Will Get Choice Of Larger, 2,000 mAh Battery.

Being that we absolutely flog every phone we touch, a robust battery and efficient power management is a must. Unfortunately even the most optimized phones, hardware and software, sputter out long before we’re done. There’s always the ability to plug in (if available), but what if you’re on the road? For that you have two options: a second, spare battery or an extended battery.

The Galaxy Nexus is the “Jesus Phone” of Android for 2011, bringing with it a high bar in terms of hardware specs as well as showcasing Android’s biggest release yet, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. The 1,750 mAh battery is already one of the largest smartphone batteries you’ll see shipped from the factory. But those needing even more will get a rare opportunity (provided you live in South Korea) as Samsung is making available a 2,000 mAh battery for the Galaxy. Again, the extended battery is only available for South Koreans. Bonus: It comes with a slightly re-designed battery cover to accomodate the bigger battery.

We don’t get this option. Bummer. We know.

Normally we’d begin to worry about unsightly bulk being added to something as sleek and sexy as the Galaxy Nexus, but as you can see above the added size is minimal with only a slight bump appearing on the bottom of the phone.

If you’re interested in scoring a battery such as this, now would be a good time to make a South Korean friend or two.
