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.

  • MOTOX

    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

    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.

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

    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!!

    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…..

      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.

    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.

  • 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.

      • No joke.  Who knows when we will have a Nexus on Verizon again?!  If ever.

        • Jake

          This phone has convinced me to stick with Android and forget about jumping to iOS. However, after owning a Nexus device and getting fast updates from Google, I may never want to go back to a phone with Blur/Sense/Touchwiz again. But what if VZW doesn’t have another Nexus phone within two years? I may have to go to iOS if that happens.

    • You may want to check the stats. I have been reading all day that it is a 5MP camera.

        Those are his “dream” specs, not the Nexus specs

    • Tom

      Question… Why do you need so much storage on your phone? I don’t see the point any more… music? Google music streams to your device and holds 20,000 songs. Movies? Netflix is already there along with Hulu Plus… As for megapixels… I always wonder if people realize what “Megapixels” translate to… Because really more megapixels = bigger picture not better picture. If they have a top quality sensor that only takes 5MP photos, then great. That is more than enough for most people. I doubt you’ll be making any posters with the pictures you take with your phone. I only understand one complaint of yours… and that is HDMI out, and I will guarantee they will have an alternative with a dock that will have that…

      About the storage thing… On my OG Droid… I have a total of 10gb used… Thats it… Everything I want and need is on the cloud… I think you need to join the 21st century and use the awesome cloud based services that allows you to take more with you than you could hope to achieve with physical memory.

      The G-Nex has everything else you want… So I fail to see the problem with this being your next phone.

        Clouds.. where data goes to viewed by every bored sys admin or pissed off security analyst. NO THANKS!
        Let me know how that cloud works when there is a massive security breech.

        How does that cloud stuff work when you are flying?

        Agreed a top quality 5MP sensor takes a better pic, but why not a higher quality 8MP sensor?

        It might be my next phone, things I am asking for are available on other phones so why not ask for them all in one? I am the consumer, make me something I truly want to buy!

      1.2ghz downclocked from 1.5ghz dual core – CHECK!

      720p HD SUPER AMOLED – CHECK!
      32GB of internal storage – CHECK! (Verizon model)
      MicroSD slot – N/A
      HDMI out – CHECK! – MHL connection cable required (whats the difference between buying a mini-HDMI cable and an MHL cable? regardless if you don’t already have one, you still need a cable for either one)
      8mp back camera – N/A  (Seriously, MP is just the size the picture is when its captured,  the sensor quality and size matters, NOT the Megapixels)
      5mp back camera – CHECK!
      1.3mp FFC – CHECK!
      Pure Android ICS – CHECK! (No Verizon bloatware or logos apparently)
      Removable battery (that unlike a certain Moto device, just so its the thinnest LTE phone) – CHECK!

      The two missing specs of yours aren’t really that important with cloud storage and the camera, again, the megapixels mean diggly squat for quality, yes it is size but again, thats only useful for taking pro shots that you want to get printed or blown up. not for something you want to share online.

    It’s still pretty thin and after what I saw last night the thickness is really not important, I really think ICS is by far the biggest improvement over any version of android and I can’t wait to get it along with that nexus in my hands. I went away from that video presentation extremely impressed and excited as hell. But I wanted to ask you guys what you thought Larry Page was talking about when he commented about a surprise a while back because I was kind of hoping for chrome on android and I’m still not sure as to what LP was talking about unless it was the facial recognition software or if he was speaking in general terms? I kept waiting for the announcement of my built-in bloody mary machine but nothing, oh well I guess I’ll just live with what they gave us.

      • Anonymous

        thats only because of the non-removable battery, the device gets thicker the more accessible it has to be to get inside the device to get to components like microSD cards, SIM slots and battery. although some argue that its a marketing ploy to have to buy replacements or accessories to get those missing features.  RAZR won’t be able to get an extended battery unless they have a similiar option that iPhone users have where a case becomes the battery addon for additional power.  which could very likely be the reason they moved the USB port to the top of the device, thats rare for any phone thats not a Windows Phone to be placed there.

    I’m alright with thickness as long as it’s got the battery stamina for the LTE, or at least make it not as bad (like make it last 10 hours instead of 7 or whatever it is). But since my area won’t get LTE for awhile it doesn’t matter as much to me, but LTE is always a plus.

    I’ll be seriously pissed if there’s any branding in the front. I see a 4GLTE branding on the back and I hope that’s as far as that goes.

    Also, regarding the thickness of the device. While I am disappointed its not 8.8mm like the HSPA+ version, it doesn’t look to bad. I assume its about 9.5mm thick considering that’s how much the Galaxy SII HD LTE is.

    I find it odd that after the galaxy sII was out every other phone was “fat” because it wasn’t as thin as the the sII. Now because it’s a nexus it’s ok that its thicker. Hypocrites

    • Justin Kos

      4g radios are slightly bigger than 3g versions

  • MikeS

    Well since Samsung is no longer listed on the back (like the press shots) this means they will surely be plastered on the front of the device. And if they are putting their 4G logo on it, you can bet Verizon will want a piece of that front bezel real estate too. Sucks. Looked so nice without any of the extra crap on the front.

    I’m DEFINITELY okay with the thickness.

    There’s a tradeoff between the Galaxy Nexus and the RAZR; Most up-to-date software and most advanced hardware for a slightly thicker (albeit still thinner than most of the modern phones out there; not to mention w/ LTE to boot) frame, or the thinnest phone, on the hardware and software of the last generation of phones with an update to the software pending for 2012.

          I may have been misinformed.. you are right. .the GNex has a newer processor than the razr (4460 vs 4430 on the razr). But I also heard the gpu in the gnex is worse than in the razr.. and thus the lower benchmark score.

      the major difference is the difference in the operating system. Galaxy Nexus is running ice cream sandwich. RAZR is running Gingerbread. RAZR will almost definitely get upgraded to Ice Cream Sandwich in 2012 sometime, however, take a look at Motorola’s track record with supplying software updates and you’ll see that they are almost always ~6 months behind.

  • 1.21 JIGGAWATTS?!  Marty, have you any idea how much that is?!

    I care very little about how thick it is, how fast the processor is, how big the battery is, all this petty nonsense everyone has been talking about.  The only thing I care about is that this is a Nexus device supported directly by google without verizon sticking their dirty little hands in the middle.  This is the phone for me.

        I don’t think he is, he seems very happy with the phone. And I agree. It’s going to be amazing and I can’t wait to pick it up on launch day.

    • FortitudineVincimus

      If you don’t care about all the hardware advancements you mention, save yourself $250 and go buy a Nexus S today. I care about everything you mention. I want a phone that is moving forward in more than just software personally.

        Your the only person here complaining; if you want another phone cool. But there are alot of people here that want this phone so let them have it. We get that it doesnt meet your needs.

    • andy

      I too don’t care about the thinness but I do care about the other dimensions. It’s too big like the rest of the 4.3″ phones.

      • Both my wife and my son have complained about how big phones are getting – “Ugh, why would you want to get that phone, it’s so big…”
        More importantly – now that I have my Bionic, and they’ve both used it, they BOTH want bigger phones.  
        What you think of as too big is just something you’re not used to.  Once you try it, it’s hard to go back to a “tiny” 4-inch screen.
        Just sayin’

    No one really cares about that to be honest. It’s something that was created by the Apple “chic and cool” mentality. As long as it’s not a giant brick most people are fine with it being a few millimeters more.

  • Anonymous

    hrm… I was kinda hoping that the added thickness of the LTE version would smooth out the camera hump, a la the Epic 4G Touch…  Looks to still be lumpy.

  • Who cares about the thickness..? it’s still a monster of a phone and i can’t wait to get this in my hands! sweet little rail system too..wonder if the screen is all scratched up from those grips!?

    • Anonymous

      maybe its a gorilla glass type screen? not saying its GG but something almost exactly like it

  • EC8CH

    So does it have any lame VZW branding on the front???

    • Christopher Heuer

      Click through to the post on G+, there’s some frontal pics that have no branding whatsoever.

      • Anonymous

        Comparing pictures, the HSPA+ model has the Google logo where the 4G LTE logo is on this one (under the camera), and the Samsung logo where the Google logo is on this one (near the speaker towards the bottom), so where is Samsung’s logo on the LTE version? I’d guess Verizon and Samsung’s logos are on the front, but you never know, maybe Verizon is giving Google a little more control like they did with Apple in that the iPhone doesn’t have a Verizon logo anywhere on it.

    • Anonymous

      Don’t they always add lame Verizon branding? What I don’t see is a Samsung logo.

  • TheAndroid1

    Make it thicker with a larger battery.

    • Sdny8

      Amen. I didn’t know so many android fans wore jeans like Steven Tyler. I want good battery life. I’m a field tech and don’t often have access to a charger for a few hrs at a time. If this has a nonremovable battery like I’m hearing. It may be a deal breaker. Which is making me extremely sad (not mad) bro

  • What I’d like to know too… is why are they holding it in place with jumper cables!?

    • EC8CH

      They’re using it to jump start the world with awesomeness.

    is it just me or does the thickness match up to the bottom hump?

  • DanSke

    Sexy phone, regardless of a little extra padding. I will definitely be selling the TBolt for this. I want the pure Nexus experience and the ability to play with ICS from the get go.

    • Ostrom Garrett

      im curious, how are you going to sell your tbolt? i want to sell mine too…

  • nxusnow

    how much is a “little”?

  • im getting this literally the moment you can actually order it. i wasnt disappointed by a single thing in the announcement

      Yeah not a single disappointment…I’m really looking forward to the facial recognition unlock…that looked solid!

  • Benjamin Mackie

    Hoping they stuck a better battery in it, but still looks great

  • ChuckDz3

    it makes me cringe seeing those clamps on that beautiful device

  • Ray

    I say we wont hear anything from VZ about this phone until a week before it comes out.

  • John Hicks

    I’m perfectly fine with the thickness (or lack thereof). I’m buying the phone for ICS and the Nexus brand.

  • ML

    I don’t have any problems with the thickness.  I can’t wait to get this in my hands!  ICS looks awesome!

  • LiterofCola

    As long as it isn’t “Revolution” thick.  Come on Verizon….we need the info!

  • It looks like the camera bump isn’t there anymore. I actually prefer the thicker version.

    • Anonymous

      It’s still there. You can clearly see the light difference around the lens where it has a slope to it.

    I am DEFINITELY ok…it would be great to hear from vzw, im just curious if they are holding out until preorders for razr are open….

    • Anonymous

      Either that or there waiting till the RAZR goes on sale or there actually going to launch all 3 superphones at once like the rumor suggests.

      So if that would be the case, yes, pre-order date for RAZR first likely, then G-NEX and Rezound eventually. Panda said there was not going to be any pre-orders for the NEXUS though, i wonder why that is.

      there isn’t much time left until that Nov 10 rumored date, 
      RAZR – Oct 27 for pre-orders would leave 2 weeks before Nov 10 and Three weeks from now.  Better than a few months or *gasp* a whole 4 months!!!

      • Anonymous

        not to compare phones, but if vzw delivers phone 1 week after ip4s pre-order, i guess it could do the same for gnexus

        • Anonymous

          I think your right, i just realized that, looks like each week is going have a new device release then.  Oh the options.  Can’t wait till November.  November 3rd was the original leaked date via BMX, but it seems that might not happen now thanks to the delayed announcement, unless everything is still on track for Nov 3rd.

          I wouldn’t be surprised if the G-Nexus is before the RAZR since it will have pre-orders but the G-Nex will not.
          So to Verizon I say, shutup and take my money and my 2 years of blood, sweat and tears!
