So what if the Samsung Galaxy S3 and the HTC One X are the hottest Android handsets in town? Some potential Android handset buyers may not be interested in paying even the subsidized sticker price for any of these two devices, but they’d still love to purchase a new, discounted, high-end smartphone. In case you are one of them, then you should definitely check out Amazon Wireless’ upcoming Galaxy Nexus deal, which should be available at some point later today or in the very near future.
The phone, currently priced at $49.99 for buyers who get a new individual or family contract or who add a new line to their family account, is going to cost just 1 penny soon, according to PhoneDog.
The Galaxy Nexus is Google’s third Nexus-branded smartphone and it was launched in the U.S. in mid-December 2011 as a Verizon (temporary) exclusive. Since then, the first Ice Cream Sandwich handset in the world has been also announced by Sprint, although it appears that Amazon’s 1 cent offer will only apply to the Verizon version of the handset.
The Galaxy Nexus may seem like a yesterday’s phone, which happens often in the Android ecosystem as device makers are constantly launching better and better devices, but it still packs quite a punch. The Galaxy Nexus sports a 4.65-inch HD Super AMOLED display with 1280 x 720 resolution, 1.2GHz dual-core TI OMAP 4450 processor, 1GB of RAM, 16/32GB of storage, 5-megapixel camera with zero shutter lag and 1080p HD video recording, 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera with 720p HD video recording, 4G LTE support, Bluetooth, GPS, NFC and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
