Last October, Samsung and Google took the stage to unveil the Galaxy Nexus, and said handset’s birthday is just around the corner. Now the world is awaiting for the next iteration of a Pure Google phone. While we’ve heard a couple of juicy rumors pertaining to the device (or devices), it looks like an Invisishield screen protector for the Samsung Nexus 2 has popped up in Carphone Warehouse’s inventory system.
Samsung getting another stab at the Nexus line isn’t a new rumor, and the device looks to be only a minor upgrade over the existing handset. Rumored to rock a 1.5GHz dual-core CPU (over 1.2GHz) and 8 megapixel, we could only hope the device would launch somewhere near the existing Galaxy Nexus’ price point. Still, we also know that there might be a possibility of more than one Nexus handset launching this year, and the Samsung Nexus 2 could just be one of three upcoming devices. LG and Sony have also been rumored to announce Nexus devices this year. So, even if Samsung does release a slightly updated Galaxy Nexus this year, maybe the other handsets will be there to pick up the slack.
Having the name “Samsung Nexus 2” in an inventory system is hardly a confirmation of the handset’s existence, but it has definitely caught our attention.
Another interesting piece of information you see in the photo above is that a 32GB version of the Asus Nexus 7 may indeed be on its way. Without a way to expand the tablet’s storage, many may not be too enthused about grabbing the 8GB version of the Nexus 7, and still might not be sold on 16GB of internal storage, either. Now, a 32GB Nexus 7 is bound to get some attention from those who passed up previous versions of the tablet, and sway them against Amazon’s latest offering. That said, if a 32GB Nexus 7 is released any time soon, expect it to hit closer to $300.
As per usual, nothing is in stone until it’s announced, but we’re fairly sure that details about the Next-gen Nexus device will soon be a bit more clear.
