It has been rumored for months, as to whether or not Verizon Wireless will be receiving the Galaxy Nexus. But, just yesterday -Verizon announced that the Galaxy Nexus will be coming to retailers “later this year”. In the interest of time, many think that the phone could possibly be released in less than 3 weeks.

According to the screenshot by Android Central, the Galaxy Nexus smartphone will be launched on November 10, but is this really true? The launch date could be fact, however Android Central never relased the source of the image, making the information a little suspicious.

Well, some of the information this image produced consist of a price for the Galaxy Nexus, which will be around $299.99 with a 2-year contract. However, the Nexus is not said to be the only device to release on this date. The image also shows that the HTC Rezound will be launched as well.

Some of the current information we know is that the Galaxy Nexus will offer a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, with a 4.65 in. HD Super AMOLED screen. It will also contain a 5MP camera with 1080p video recording. Then, to top it off, it will be capable of 4G LTE and HSPA, which will be joined by the brand new Android OS, Ice Cream Sandwich.

And of course the HTC Rezound aka Vigor, will offer a 1.5GHz dual-core SnapDragon Processor, with a 4.3 inch screen. It will also have an  8MP camera, and could possibly be upgraded to Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich). But will definitely be running on Verizon’s 4G LTE network.So do you think this image is fact or fiction? Will you get the Galaxy or Rezound upon release? Let me know in your comments.Credits: Image from Android Central

    Galaxy Nexus. ICS is just too much of a draw. Also, Sammy’s SAMOLED display has the contrast everyone wants.

    The razr is listed for the 27th because of preorders and will be available in stores a week later. After that they will announce the nexus for the 10th. They are keeping it quiet because they will make more $ with their bloatware and droid branding on the razr and announcing the nexus date now would cut into those sales. I’m waiting for the nexus. But I’m wondering how ics will affect the physical buttons on other phones. Anybody with info on this?

      It looks to me that apps designed for ICS can choose how many buttons to display and what they do. The older devices have 4 buttons, but a new app may want to display 3 or 5 buttons, and they may do different things than indicated on the fixed button set. It seems like a potentially confusing situation. But the Galaxy Nexus will be my first smartphone, so I really don’t know anything.

        I would highly recommend this device. Not only because of my article but all the effort that went into making this device.
