Looks like consumers have to start saving some cash for Verizon’s Samsung Galaxy Nexus, whose price has been revealed through a photo of Costco’s internal database.

Android Central managed to get a copy of the leaked photo showing the Verizon device priced at US$289.99, with no current info about stock or release date to be found.

Together with the new HTC Rezound, previous leaks from Verizon indicated the mobile phone’s launch date on November 10.

The Galaxy Nexus is also reported to reach Europe a little bit later on November 17. This might also be the case with U.S. consumers, with a leaked advertising calendar showing the Galaxy Nexus launch and a general Samsung campaign happening after Thanksgiving.

What makes the Galaxy Nexus so popular is the new Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich that it will debut to the world, along with the following specs:

  • 4.65 inch HD Super AMOLED touchscreen
  • 720×1280 pixels resolution
  • 1.2 GHz dual-core TI OMAP 4460 processor
  • 1 GB of RAM
  • 32 GB built-in storage
  • 5-megapixel rear-camera
  • 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera
  • 1,750 mAh battery
  • Near Field Communication (NFC)

Let’s just hope that Verizon’s upcoming Galaxy Nexus won’t follow the same fate of Verizon’s Motorola DROID RAZR, which comes with a locked bootloader.

Between the DROID RAZR and the Galaxy Nexus, which Android powerphone are you getting for the holidays?
