Samsung Galaxy Nexus and HTC Rezound launch date and prices leak: November 10th, $300 on contract

party

Verizon Wireless is set to introduce two Android smartphones next month that are pretty much guaranteed to make geeks from sea to shining sea jizz in their pants. First up, the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, which we’ve been hearing rumors about for quite a few months now. It’s going to be the first smartphone to run Google’s next version of Android, Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS), which we’ll know plenty more about in less than 50 hours thanks to an official Google event that’ll be live streamed from Hong Kong. Besides running ICS, the Galaxy Nexus is also set to sport a massive 4.6 inch screen that pushes 1280 x 720 pixels. That puts it in Apple iPhone 4/4S territory in terms of pixels per inch. Underneath all that glass will be a dual core processor 1.2 GHz processor, 1 GB of RAM, and a camera that’ll we’re hearing conflicting reports about; it’s either 5 megapixels or 8 megapixels.

Next up is the HTC Rezound, which many folks recognize as the Vigor. It’s a Gingerbread smartphone, making it incredibly unattractive due to ICS being right around the corner, and like the Galaxy Nexus it’ll have a screen with a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels. To be incredibly blunt, we could care less about the Rezound since HTC’s Sense UI makes us want to go to a fancy restaurant, smash some wine glasses to rouse everyone’s attention, and then shove those sharp crystal stems right into our eyes. The Galaxy Nexus on the other hand will deliver the pure Android experience, which will make it the best Android smartphone until … well, until the next Nexus hits the scene.

Now nothing you’ve just read is considered new information. If you’ve been keeping up with the technology news cycle, you already know everything there is to know about the Galaxy Nexus and the Rezound … except for when they’ll be announced and how much they’ll cost.

Thanks to Engadget, we know now: Both will be announced on November 10th, both will be sold for an astonishing $300 with a 2 year contract!

    You don’t know what the specs will be on the Nexus.  At least you could have said rumored specs.  You are using the BGR reported specs and I doubt they are correct since a Google insider has come out with a different set of specs.  We shall see on Tuesday.

  • HTC rules

    I love
    you type people. You all want Vanilla Android. the very FIRST thing you will do
    is download a launcher (you have to because Vanilla is boring). So the launcher
    you download will be 20 times less as refined as Sense. So how does that make
    sense? Plus i don’t care if the Nexus has a quad core and super HD screen. it
    is still on a SamDUNG!!!!!! the worse phone company bar none.

    so keep
    saying “you could care less about the Rezound” that leaves more for
    me. But i guarantee you that one day after you get the Nexus you will be
    wishing you bought the Rezound instead. Guaranteed !!!!!!!! HTC is the best
    phone made. Samdung is the worse. It’s just like not having Verizon as service.
    I don’t care what type phone you have, if you’re not on Verizon, you don’t have
    a cell phone. And if you have a super Samdung you have a junk phone. I can’t
    wait for the Rezound. I can’t believe you said what you said. Dummy !!!!!!!!!

    why the tiny 1.2 dual core? perhaps a 1.5 would be more in the territory of iPhone killer. i was gonna wait for the nexus s. but why? the galaxy s 2 is more than sufficiant. being as google and samsung just put a hi-res display and ICS. basically its a gs2. sham

       From what I’ve heard, it is a 1.5 ghz dual core, it is just clocked down to 1.2. they did the same thing to the snapdragon in the original nexus one, it was capable of 1.1 ghz but it came clocked at 988 mhz. a custom kernel will fix that for those who want the full clock speed.

    Did I read the article right? “jizz in your pants”. Was that really necessary?

      It was absolutely necessary!

    This site is a joke.

    Also HTC Sense is the best UI available.

      Sense is the most bloated Android skin available today. HTC even put a nice security hole in its phones because all of its heavy customizations to the OS.

     HTC Rezound will be a world phone, that will make it the first LTE world phone on verizon, so that could be a selling point until more come out. I heard the nexus prime will not be.
