The Samsung Galaxy Nexus still hasn’t reared its head on this side of the world yet, but it looks like its Korean brethren have already started receiving matching accessories. According to reports online, folks who purchase the Samsung Galaxy Nexus in Korea will be able to purchase an optional larger battery for the device. And unlike the HTC Thunderbolt’s battery that adds a hideous bump to the phone’s rear, the Galaxy Nexus’ larger battery only increases the thickness of the phone ever so slightly. It even comes with a slightly redesigned battery cover to accommodate it.
The optional battery will have a capacity of 2,000mAh as opposed to the stock battery which has 1,750mAh. With the Galaxy Nexus featuring a massive, HD Super AMOLED display and 4G connectivity – many people would undoubtedly benefit from having a larger power source. But for now if you’re keen on picking up the larger battery you’ll need to find some way to get it shipped over. Hopefully it’ll become an option when the phone is finally released in the US.
