The Samsung Galaxy Nexus was announced earlier this week in Hong Kong, but there were no details about which carriers will be selling the device revealed (if you don’t count the hints on Samsung’s Galaxy Nexus interest page) – until this evening. Verizon has issued a press release, officially confirming that the flagship Android superphone will be available on its network. And yes, the phone will support 4G LTE on Big Red.
No prices or exact date for the phone’s release was given, but its specs were reiterated in the press release: 4.65″ HD Super AMOLED (1280 x 720) display, 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, 4G LTE connectivity, 5-megapixel rear camera, 1.3-megapixel front facing camera, NFC-capabilities, Google mobile services (Android Market, Maps etc), WiFi, Bluetooth and GPS.
No word on whether it will be a Verizon-exclusive at launch either, but stay tuned and we’ll keep you posted. Who’s going to purchase this phone when it goes on sale?
