Rumor: Galaxy Nexus Will Be Released November 3

Last week, one of our sources sent over a Verizon timeline that pegged the Samsung Galaxy Nexus as launching on October 27. Today, a new date has surfaced – November 3. Yep, that is the following Thursday and is not out of the realm of possibility. Big Red loves Thursdays, plus we always seem to see these dates sneak from one week to another as we get closer. I would still give the 27th a fair shot though, especially after that same list was the only one we saw with the Stratosphere launching on the 13th – something that ended up happening.

To make this sound even better, just think of it as less than a month from now. Two or three and a half weeks away. Crazy.

    So i got this 50 dollar coupon from Verizon any smart phone in the mail and I knew the galaxy nexus was going to come out the 3rd just cause the coupon expires this month

    I think Google and Samsung have waited long enough to give Steve Jobs his respect. There’s no need to delay the announcement or release any longer. His unfortunate passing was news right up until this weekend; now it’s old news. Steve was a business man. If they want to respect him, keep business going. You don’t see Apple delaying orders for its 4S. Heck, I wouldn’t be surprised if Apple knew on the day that it announced the 4S that Steve was on his death bed, yet they went ahead with the event, because it’s what Steve would have wanted. Samsung and Google are only handicapping themselves with this delay and giving Apple more momentum. I know people who were waiting to hear about the Nexus that have gone ahead and ordered the 4S because of the delay.

    • I don’t disagree with you.  I still do not understand why people would buy a 3G device.  Lemmings!!!  I would be seriously considering the iPhone when I can see it up against the Nexus.  However, with no 4G, it is a no go.

        Well im an Android guy through and through but i just switched back to Verizon on my old Curve 8330 and am in need of a new phone real quick haha. My area lacks significant coverage by the other 3 carriers but Verizons 3g works flawlessly. So i would understand how a lot of people with older devices and maybe a lack of Lte coverage in their area would buy something else. I hate IOS but im really considering it if the Nexus isnt announced soon because i hate VZWs Android lineup.

        •  trust me, I know the current VZW phones suck.  I have the OG Droid and will wait.  Prime, Vigor, and Razr are the next flagship phones coming. 

  • Dshudson

    For those of you who believe this phone is coming out Nov 3rd, you my friend, are a moron. 

    •  When is it coming out then?

      I am only clinging to the date since the OG Droid came out on Nov 6 2009.

    • Why would Nov 3rd not be the date?  The phone is ready to go, they were going to announce it today, but pushed back that announcement (not the release date) because of Jobs’ death.

    •  It will still be a 3G device.

    A good friend from High School who now works for Google and I were Skyping last night, and he had the phone in hand….He said the phone is, “EVERYTHING we have been asking for, and NOTHING we don’t want”
    He said it is SO polished and although the screen is a bit larger, the minor curve of the phone actually makes it fit nicely in the palm of the hand…..
    It looked REALLY nice, and ran FLAWLWSSLY!

      So why the hell didn’t you take a screen grab?

        I was asked not to…..plus, you’ve seen it already….I’d have nothing new from a grab to show off…

      I’ll give you credit for being more creative than saying a rep told you.  😛

    • I don’t care anymore, we know it’s awesome!!!!  Just give us a release date!!!!

  • Is it possible that the Galaxy Nexus could be announced on the 27th and released on November 3rd?

  • Sublime8696

    I’m still happy with my OG Droid running Project Elite 6.5. I will buy the Galaxy Nexus if my OG Droid finally stops working. If it continues to run and something better comes out, ill get that…. If my OG Droid finally stops working.

    I hope the delay had nothing to do with the rumored respect for Steve Jobs. Pre-orders for the iPhone 4s is supposedly going like hotcakes. The original October 11 announcement date  is just what Google and Samsung needed to take the wind out of Apple’s sail.

    I may venture away from my physical keyboards for this one.  Not sure yet.  I do love keys…..

      physical keyboards = unnecessary thickness.

      If you are not “sure” that this is a sexy beast, and you still want keys, well then you should go away, bro

    the software in the bionic its good. We have the best build quality, radios and sound quality loud speakers as well. Moto has the edge over the other manufactures.

      Too bad the qHD screens blow compared to the OLEDs

          could you mind telling where you come up with these things

            I read 🙂 , it will have the amoled that the first galaxy has

        • Ibob337

          But will it also be bloat free?

      • Agreed, the pentile qHD makes the Bionic (and X2 and D3) completely unbuyable.

    • agreed. Motoroal does well at the most important things in the smartphone industry:

      1. Radios. They have better reception than any equivelent device from other android OEMs. Period.
      2. Build quality. With the exception of you know who, MOTO is the best here.
      3. Updates. Snappy as ever!!

        People do not want to understand that. They are focusing on bootloader and speed.

        Iphone and Moto are equal when it comes to build quality.

    lol that’s what is going to happen. Moto will win once again like they always do.

    those are rumors, i do not feel that sammy will go way from their cheap plastic.

  • Anonymous

    The battery cover is plastic not the whole device.

  • Give it to me already, Verizon and Samsung!!!
    I swear I’ll go and get “it” from someone else.
    …Sprint, what’s that: Unlimited plan, Dual-Core, upgrading to LTE…

  • Anonymous

    Software is easier to fix than hardware. Moto has the hardware, the build quality and sound quality. They are also putting nice processor in their devices.

    • Sorry, but Motorola has never proven they can put good software on their devices.

    i hear crickets from the bionic adopters side

    • because we’re all too busy enjoying our Bionic instead of waiting on the next great thing

        I’m enjoying my Bionic -and- waiting on the next great thing!

        its hard to believe anyone can “enjoy” the bionic when it was a complete flop of a phone. sounds like denial setting in, much like the tbolt owners.

        • Tyler

          NO. The Thunderbolt was NOT a mistake….it was merely the first of its kind. WE wanted LTE NOW, and WE got it! How can you call that a mistake? The first gen. of everything has its flaws! We made some sacrifices, but I am largely satisfied with my Thunderbolt, now that it is running CM7. Sure, I will get the Prime, but I have been experiencing LTE since March, and that was totally worth it to me. Denial? Hardly.

  • Nerdydesi

    An SKU with a keyboard would be awesome. Too bad I’m in the minority!

  • Wintrmte

    I was holding out for the HTC Vigor, but if the rumored specs for this phone (especially the AMOLED display) are true, I am all over this like white on rice..  Hopefully it does come out on Nov 3rd.

  • Anonymous

    Wasn’t this the original date in the “poem” anyway?  I guess the Oct 27 announcement rumor could be true now after all since Moto is announcing its newest toys on the 18th.  And why exactly the Vigor has suddenly vanished off the face of the earth, is anyones guess. I think the Nexus announcement delay forced Verizon to revise its launch plans and keep the devices flowing or something else is up.
