According to the FCC filing, the new version of the Nexus S has newer Wi-Fi, GPS and Bluetooth antennas, but it doesn't go into any detail on exactly what new hardware has been added into the device.
It is a good sign to see a different GPS antenna being tried out, as there were GPS problems for some users of Galaxy S handsets, but from what I remember, a software update fixed those issues in large part. However, in my opinion, a new GPS antenna that may possibly be stronger is nothing to complain about.
This latest filing is not necessarily the last change that Samsung will make to the device before launch, but at least it brings us one step closer to the release of the handset. I myself will be buying a Nexus S as soon as possible and doing a review of the device and Android Gingerbread for you readers.
