How to configure the Android emulator to simulate the Galaxy Nexus?

Posted by on May 4, 2013 in Android | 0 comments

 
What settings for the Android emulator will closely simulate the characteristics of the Galaxy Nexus as possible?

Solution:

You can very well go through the procedures available below to simulate the characteristics of NEXUS,
 

  • Target: Google APIs – API Level 15
  • Skin: Built-in WXGA720

 

Selecting skin sets the following hardware parameters, leave them as-is:

  • Hardware Back/Home: no
  • Abstracted LCD density: 320
  • Keyboard lid support: no
  • Max VM application heap size: 48
  • Device ram size: 1024

 

Galaxy Nexus has no SD card, just internal memory. Distinction between internal and external storage is important and can affect apps. To simulate this:

  • add SD Card support=no parameter;
  • launch emulator with –partition-size 1024 for 1GB internal memory, or use some other means to increase amount of internal memory available;

 

If you’re working on camera apps, you’ll also want to set correct number of cameras, and correct resolution.
