Samsung Galaxy Nexus U.S. launch pushed back until December
The Samsung Galaxy Nexus is the world’s first smartphone to run Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich
Just moments ago, Samsung confirmed what we already suspected: the Verizon Galaxy Nexus U.S. launch has been pushed back to December. Confusingly, the Galaxy Nexus actually had no official launch date, but both Google and Samsung said multiple times that the device would indeed launch in November.
For those unfamiliar with the Galaxy Nexus, the device is the first Android 4.0 smartphone to see the light of day. Unlike any Android smartphone before it, the Galaxy Nexus has an all new UI and brand new feel. It’s a complete re-imagining of Android from webOS design guru Matias Duarte.
Spec-wise, the Galaxy Nexus features a massive 4.65-inch HD display and is powered by a 1.2GHz dual-core processor. It also has 1GB of RAM, a super-fast 5-megapixel camera, and a front-facing camera capable of 720p HD video. The camera is actually sort of a big deal on the Nexus as it is the first stock Android camera to have a zero shutter lag lens.
Just days after the phone was announced last month, Verizon confirmed that it would be launching the Nexus “before the end of the year” and now here we are. Since then, we have heard nothing really specific on a launch date, only that it was coming soon, but now it appears that any type of November date has been scrapped.
Honestly, at this point, everything is sort of up in the air for the Verizon Galaxy Nexus, but that rumored December 9th launch date is sounding more and more plausible. Hopefully we’ll find out more soon.
Stay tuned and be patient Android faithful.
