Here is Your Verizon 4G LTE Samsung Galaxy Nexus

Remember the impressive time lapse video samples shown off last night that were taken with a Galaxy Nexus? Who knew that each of them was shot with the Verizon 4G LTE version of the device? We know now thanks to Romain Guy, the Google engineer that was in charge of the footage. As you can see in the shot above, Big Red’s 4G LTE logo is plastered square in the back underneath the camera. And for those of you thinking, “But but, that could be AT&T!” It’s not. AT&T’s 4G LTE logo is ugly and has flames on it. This is most definitely Verizon’s.

We still are not sure exactly when this version will be available (tentative date set of November 10), but we do get a look at the thickeness in this shot. You may recall a story from this morning which suggested that the LTE version would be a “little” thicker – I’m OK with thickness I’m seeing in this photo. You?

    Haha I love what you said about at&ts logo “ugly and has flames on it”

  • Booboolala2000

    Looks just a little bit thinner than my Charge. I’ll gladly get one. I don’t need anything super thin.

    ok, so i have the t-bolt and i’m upgrade eligible in February.  i want this phone the day it comes out.  could i add a line, switch my main number to the new phone, then kill the other line (new number) when i’m out of contract on the t-bolt?  anyone?  anyone?  bueller?

    • Booboolala2000

      Early upgrade fee for $20. I was able to do that on a BoGo for one of my lines.

  • Jimmy

    Seeing that there is no Verizon Wireless logo on the back means it’s going to be plastered all over the front. Depressing.

    hmm…if all phones get the update, the rezound really has me interested….same/ better specs than the galaxy nexus, and htc usually does provide quick updates or they leak….which is what i did for my thunderbolt… and beats intrigues me..

    • Tom

      Why would Beats technology intrigue you? Reports indicate that it is just a major bass boost and not much else. It is beyond me why people think Beats headphones sound good in the first place. Sure they are better than $5 ear buds that most people are coming from, but they can’t even hold a candle to real headphones that are within the same price range from companies like Shure, Beyerdynamic, Audio-Technica, Sennheiser and Sony. Seriously compare a $300 headphone from any of those companies to the Beats and you will be shocked at how much Monster is managing to rip you off. Nothing has changed with that company. They are the same company who put their HDMI TV next to a Composite Cable TV and called them both HD to get you to buy THEIR “superior” cables which were priced 300% more than their competition’s.

    Razr or G-Nexus that is the question…..

    Thicker phones are fine with me, long as it stays about or under the thickness of the og droid I’m good, I’ve used both the og and the droid x for extended amounts of time and they’ve both felt fine, and I’m sure this phone will also be plenty powerful enough for me, and finally long as the camera is better than motorola cameras, I’ll be happy

    • Booboolala2000

      The Samsung cameras are much better

  • J Dub

    Men like them thin and women like them thick. This must be a compromise.

    • Jake

      Speak for yourself. I like my women thick.

    • LiterofCola

      Amen, women and cell phones must be thin!

  • Awesomecannon75

    Who cares about the thickness? Just put it in my pocket…the sooner, the better!

    I really hope the desktop charging dock as well as car dock don’t feature this mounting design…

  • hatethanet

    Looks thinner than the Bionic. That would be fine with me.

  • BoozeHammer

    Android’s are the chrysler 300 of phone. They’re nice, but don’t ever try and compare them to a real bentley. They flood the market with all the exact same phones, they’re a dime a dozen. Android didn’t change the game, because Android can’t change the game, only Apple can do that.

      You’re a tool.

    • Inc2/tbolt

      Yah, and they can do it in the same frame also. Their real game changers. Same phone-different year…

      Maybe next year it will still be the same phone with things added to make it closer to androids 3 year old technology.

    Hehehe

  • Tom

    So… now that we pretty much know this is confirmed, open and not going to be messed with (much) by Verizon. Who wants to say “We told you so” to all the naysayers claiming that this wouldn’t be a true Nexus device?

    Though… I do wonder if they’ll call it the Droid Galaxy Nexus or something of the sort, or if it will have the Droid branding at all. If not that would explain the lack of advertisement on Verizon’s side.

    I find it interesting there aren’t any Verizon logos on that beauty. Either they were going out of the way to hide them like they did in the presentation with that tape on the back of the one that was in the NFC demo or Verizon’s logo won’t be on it (which I highly doubt but of course, the iPhone doesn’t have carrier logos either, just in the status bar)  maybe its about time Android, as a NEXUS phone especially, got the same treatment since its also lacking bloatware.

    after watching the entire presentation of the device, i’m so skipping the Rezound, the Rezound looks sweet and all but i want a phone that will always get the latest updates and will likely be easily unlockable and supported by a vast dev community.  I was preparing for this for a while which is why i got beautiful widgets and fancy widget pro (for free thanks to Amazon he he) just incase i would ever lose the nice big sense clock widget i always use.  The time has come to leave sense behind.  I absolutely loved Stock Honeycomb on my Galaxy Tab 10.1 before it was changed to the “too bright” version of Touch WIZ UX.  And ICS brings that same look to the smartphone space and i’m all for it.  I cannot wait to get my hands on this device!!

    guys.. make sure all of you order AFTER I have placed the order. If I don’t get the phone on day 1, I’m gonna be really pissed. so back off!!

    • Kerbero9

      Dude its not an iphone..u will be fine.

    Looks like the phone is so powerful it can jump a car off! Damn VZW must be proud of this one

    is anyone aware if the micro usb port will have the ability to act as an hdmi out on this phone? 
    That would be amazing. :)

  • GetGood

    I am surprised that Iphone troller has not made his appearance yet.

  • UrbanEggman

    My concerns, no expandable storage and no HDMI.  I realize the HDMI can be overcome by docks and cables but I don’t really want to spend a ton on extras.  The storage thing is going to make moving over from an old phone (apps and stuff) a PIA.  Not to mention 1080p video and you can’t expand the storage…..

      Really? Plug in OG with charging cord to computer and put in USB mode. Plug in Nexus and do the same (if needed). Copy and Paste. Done

      Might be hard if you use an ipad as your computer…

      One acronym for ya

      MHL  look it up

      • rocketdaddy

        MHL actually looks better than HDMI to me. If I understand correctly, MHL lets your TV charge the device and the TV remote can control the device. I admit I don’t know the details of either standard. Can anybody shed more light?

        • Anonymous

          you are correct, MHL uses the voltage from HDMI to keep it charged too, so unlike Motorola’s solution to always have the HDMI/USB ports together so they make big hulking adapters, Samsung’s has always been a solution that uses one single cable on microUSB, as does the HTC phones that use MHL.

          the HDMI control though, i think thats more CEC connected devices, or it has to have a multimedia dock, but i could be wrong, i never really owned an HDMI / MHL device to be sure, i’ve always streamed my content via PC anyway or DLNA from the phone itself.

    That is definitely a sign of relief…considering if this phone wasn’t going to be available at Verizon, like the SGSII, I would have probably jumped in front of a herd of wild red bulls.

    The AT&T LTE logo is very very ghey.

  • Anonymous

    This has likely already been said, but my understanding was that both phones were already shown side by side during the presentation. Perhaps most prominently on the Android Beam splashscreen, I think it was.

    One of the Nexuses set back to back appears to be slightly thicker than the other.

    Where do I get the Tripod accessory?

  • Matt2783

    AT&T’s logo really is ugly. Looks like it belongs on a hot wheels car or something.

  • BoozeHammer

    It’s an ok phone, I just wish they had named 4.0 Meatball Sandwich.

  • http://www.facebook.com/TJHRULZ tjhrulz

    I am in now means saying that it is not coming to verizon (I really believe and hope it will), but the lack of Verizon’s name and Samsung on it make me thing that they were not put on their on purpose(duh). But 4G is a selling point of this phone and it stayed on, but the layout they used for 4G on the phone, while being the same as Verizon’s, is the only one Google used in the conference.
