With the official announcement coming next week, the Galaxy Nexus is hardly any sort of secret to anyone. Another thing that shouldn’t be all that surprising is that the handset has shown up in Verizon’s inventory system. With a rumored launch date of November 3rd, the Galaxy Nexus should definitely be one of the most popular Android devices to land on Verizon for some time.
The picture above doesn’t show us much we don’t already know but there are a few things that may interest a few people. One thing that we are surprised to see is that the handset won’t be a world phone. This really won’t mean much unless you travel a lot but even if you don’t it’s a nice option to have. We’ve also got the confirmation that the Galaxy Nexus will rocking 4G LTE, which is something we’ve heard ever since we first got word of the handset.
Keep in mind that the Galaxy Nexus will likely just be the Verizon version of the very-real Nexus Prime. With a GSM version already pushing through the FCC, you can bet your ass that there will be more than one version of the next Nexus handset. Plus, we’re not really buying that Google would let Samsung rename its own handset, even if the Nexus name is included somewhere. Not the mention that a Google Galaxy Nexus just sounds stupid. We’ll likely get to see another version announced as well for other carriers on the 19th. Hopefully.
If the rumors of the November 3rd Galaxy Nexus release date turn out to be true, we can only hope that the same goes for the other versions of the handset. I’m really hoping to see a Sprint version pop up. The only indication of a WiMAX-toting version of the Nexus handset was found in the “poem” that also claimed that one version will sport a QWERTY keyboard. We won’t really be able to find out if anything from this poem is credible until after the announcement.
If the Nexus Prime/Galaxy Nexus does debut on all four carriers, which one will you go for?
