Verizon Makes Galaxy Nexus Official, Coming “Later This Year”

We told you not to worryVerizon is now sending out press releases for the Samsung Galaxy Nexus. Unfortunately, there are no dates included, but they say before the year’s end.

So now that all the rumors have been put to rest and a Verizon Galaxy Nexus is official, who here is more excited than ever?

    There is no question at all – I’m getting this phone. I really believe it won’t be released the same day as the RAZR, but who knows. As long as it’s out by the holiday shopping season I’m fine. I’ll be able to convince my wife of me getting one if I use the “early Christmas present” angle with her.

    Question to everyone, the Galaxy Nexus seems to be the better phone now, but what about the Razr when it gets ICS?

  • Sporttster

    Tell ya what…I checked out the GS2 on T-Mobile today and that is one HOT phone! The screen is flat out beautiful! If Verizon keeps screwing around with dates,and holding off, I’m extremely tempted to jump to TM and get that bad boy!!! It is SWEET!!!!

  • Jb6823

    Since it sounds like the Razr will be getting ICS in a few months, is the Nexus still the better choice or the long haul?

    • KevinC

      just remember how long it took for the droid x and droid 2 to get gingerbread.  and the xoom to get 4g.  and when the razr does get ics, it will be blurred up and buggy, just like the gingerbread update was.

      or you could get your updates straight from google.

  • Ahitskayla

    I don’t like the fact its got a 5mp cam.. but its still in my near future. I’m glad i’m getting rid.of the thunderbolt, thing sucks

  • How many GB’s they giving us?  I’d be more than happy with 32.  I always said I was going to get a big sd card for my X and load it with movies but I never did.  I don’t care too much about it.  

  • hatethanet

    Non-removable battery (RAZR) or no micro SD slot (Nexus)? What do you guys think is the bigger omission?

    • Anonymous

      for me the battery. nice way to force a reboot when I mess up a rom flash.

  • IMHO if you choose to go with the RAZR you’d better be happy with GB.  MOTO is the fastest at updates but they still take fo-eva

  • Earleepa

    It may be coming later this year but with no sd card it’s not coming into my home.

  • Keith Norris

    Probably negotiating on how they can muck it up!!!

  • Rick

    Come on….Just release the thing! Why would they wait? The 4s is out there selling like crazy, scooping up customers…. I just can’t fathom why VZW wouldn’t be chomping at the bit to get this phone in the stores. Loyalty to moto interfering?

      they want to give moto a chance like they did with the bionic.

    WWhy the Droid X slander???? I got mine the first day it came out, never ever had a problem with it…. Great phone…

  • lucas johnson

    the only thing i’m not looking forward to is verizon’s apps. i know it’s a nexus and all… but i am almost positive that they will still load it with crap. good thing ICS can disable that junk… if verizon doesn’t change that too. they have a great network but their antics tire me

    • Anonymous

      they say that for all their smartphones. You will be grandfathered.

  • Johnszumigata

    In what order do you predict the following will occur?

    1. Release of Galaxy Nexus on Verizon
    2. Announcement of Moto Bullet, Jet, Dinara or Edison
    3. ICS update of Razr
    4. CES 2012
    5. The members of the android blogosphere come to the realiztion that we are on a giant hamster
    wheel.

    • Keith Norris

      Giant hamster wheel of course, then CES 2012 and RAZR update in 2013…lol

  • rncshow

    Man this device is so close to being a perfect android device.  It’s got a a LOT more upside than the Razr which is obvious, but I sure feel like Samsung dropped the ball in a couple of their choices.  I have a feeling I’ll be waiting this one out for a little bit longer to see what the feedback is when this thing goes live.

  • Duck Dodgers

    SWEET!!! I hope they hold off until after Christmas. My update isn’t until the 2nd of January.

    I like one thing about Apple. When they have a presentation, they will tell us about price, about date, about carriers.
    On other hand, any Android phone lunch is full of secrets. No respect for customers. Even when they say something is mostly full of lies. Remember when Bionic suppose to be lunched ?  How about LTE for Xoom or upgrade for Thunderbolt. My wife has i Phone and she laughs each time, when she reads this kind of predictions.
    This is big BS from Google and its partners. Promises, promises, promises………..

    IMO there is no way even VZW would let this phone out after black friday and the beginning of the mass shopping season…i say it’s out on 11/10 or 11/17 (which i think is more probable now) as we know they like thursdays…i’m hoping anyways!!!  Galaxy Nexus you will be mine at some point!!!

  • bujiwam

    Is anybody questioning getting the Galaxy Nexus based on it’s size? I have a Droid Incredible with a 3.7″ screen. 4.3″ screened phones feel pretty big in comparison. This thing is going to be downright massive, right? Has anybody gone from a smaller phone to a bigger one and regretted it? Or do you just get used to it?

    • bujiwam

      I realize there are all sorts of jokes in there….but seriously. Is the size of the Galaxy Nexus a deal breaker for anybody?

      • Anonymous

        i would prefer it to be 4.3 inches but to me, its no deal breaker. i like a big screen anyway, its nice for gaming and videos.

      • Anonymous

        from pictures and reports i’ve seen the GN is not much larger than most 4.3″ phones because they reduced the bezel and removed the hardware buttons for ICS…therefore they were able to put a larger, 4.65″, screen on roughly the same sized device…so if your comfortable with most 4.3″ devices there shouldn’t be too much difference…not a deal breaker at all for me…actually looking forward to it

      • Went from original droid to droidx with no problems. In fact only a day or 2 later I picked up the original droid and it seemed so tiny and I wondered how I ever used it. So you’ll probably be just fine.

      • Johnszumigata

        I went from a Blacberry to a Bionic with extended battery. I never regretted the size difference once. Took me 2 or three days to get used to. The only thing that is tough to get used to is the weight, but you probably wont have that issue with razr or Nexus although the VZW GNEX is supposed to be thicker than the one we saw.

        I’m a little confused. I know the razr wont be able to have an extended battery but the GNEX will…rigjt?

    • Anonymous

      my only regret was not doing it earlier. I was EXACTLY like you. I went from Dinc to T-bolt. Now the T-bolt seems to small. When i look at the Dinc i gave to my friend, i can’t even believe i used it.

      Trust me you want the bigger one. You will never go back. Again, i was concerned like you. by the way, it only takes 3 days to get used to it and realize how you have been suffering with a smaller screen

      • LionStone

        Yep, same here…dinc to TB…and never looked back. I still have the dinc as a backup or if a friend needs to borrow a phone.

    Why do I feel like they are going to delay this phone until mid December?  They have Apple stuffing the 4s down their throat.  They’ll have their best friend Moto, stuffing the Razr down their throat in November.

    It seems like they want to let these phones run their course and then let the Nexus slide in before the year ends.  I think this is a mistake, the Nexus is going to be a big seller, not to just our communities but also to the general public.  There’s no denying that this phone is sexy, people are going to gravitate towards it on Verizon because it’s sexy, slim and has a big beautiful screen along with LTE.

    Hopefully the inner workings of Verizon and it’s partners don’t get in the way of us getting this phone sooner rather than later.

  • GCurry

    I’m still using my day 1 OG Droid, nursing it along.   But here’s my big question, about the microphone.

    I was VERY pleasantly surprised by the Droid 1 mic and voice input for text msg input especially.

    Now I have an Acer A500 where voice input is pretty weak (only problem).  I love the GNex, and waiting for it, but am worried about voice input quality, and think that Motorola will be likely to do the same good job in Razr.  Any thoughts?   Experience with Samsung phone mics?

      I still think mid-Novemeber is a strong possibility…would be a huge mistake not to have this phone out before thanksgiving and black friday…keeping my fingers crossed for 11/17 but would love the 10th even more

  • Mr_Snrub

    Verizon is notorious for trying to steer people towards a particular phone and that’s not even counting the dozen emails I’ve received saying that my upgrade can be used for an iphone. 

    With so many OGD upgrades becoming due over the next two months it wouldn’t surprise me at all if they pushed the release date to December in order to crowbar the RAZR and Vigor on the masses.  HTC and especially MOTO have been much better bed buddies with Verizon than Sammy. 

    A compromise is in order.  I say an early November launch with no advertising or marketing push for the Galaxy Nexus.

  • I think I might go bury myself in snow and ice and freeze myself like Cartman until November 10th and rebury myself if it still isn’t here yet.

    • Billy Jenkins

      Maybe I should remind you of what happened to Cartman in that episode? Cartman froze himself by urying him in the snow. but an avalanche covered him and butters couldn’t find him which kept cartman frozen for 500 years. So if you use Cartmans idea then do it smart or you might just wake up when a smartphone is obsolete

      • Tom

        Explain to me how that would be a bad thing if your intent is better technology? Assuming that the world is still here in 500 years, there will be something a million times better than a G-Nex.

  • Billy Jenkins

    I sense a repeat of the Thunderbolt and the Bionic release dates. The Nexus will be released “later this year” and on December 31 they will announce that it will be released in Q3 of 2012. And the pattern will continue a few more times. It’s not possible for Verizon to release a really good phone like the Nexus, Thunderbolt, and Bionic without first delaying it many times.

  • my reaction to it all

  • Ray

    later this year better mean in like 3 weeks

  • 93techxx

    Time to save!!

  • Happy Valley

    That statement translates to “see you in late December”. And then it will get delayed more and get pushed back until early 2012…..you know it’s coming.

  • Xcution25

    I can upgrade from my OG droid in Feb. 2012, but if you can wait one of the biggest tech trade shows CES comes in the first or second week of January  and in March is MWC.  You are in (Prime) position to get a phone ahead of the pack  with a less buggy version of ICS.  This is all assuming we’ll see quad-core phones by then and have them released in America in the first half of the year.

  • Anonymous

    Yep, that’s it. I really, really, REALLY wanted to get the Droid Bionic(and probably would have by now if I had an upgrade), but because I don’t have an upgrade until Mar. 2012, I won’t be now. Also, after hearing a few things about the Bionic(good and bad), it almost seems like the Bionic would be nothing more than an appetizer, a phone that could tide you over until the real deal arrives.

    And the Samsung Galaxy Nexus is definitely the real deal. Maybe that’s why I’ve been waiting to so long to get a new phone. It’s fate. I waited so long to get a new phone because I’ve been waiting for the next best thing, which happens to be the SGN.

    But honestly, I can’t complain. I’ve been loving my Droid X for the past year and I have nothing but extremely great things to say about it, while some of you have been using the OG, so I have no right to complain at all.

    Anyways…the SGN is definitely going to my next phone. But I must get it in November(might have to pay full price), because if I wait until Mar. 2012 when my full upgrade is available, something bigger and better will probably be making its rounds, but I don’t want that to happen. I want to fully enjoy the hell outta the SGN(when I get it) even if it means I’m stuck with it for a year and a half until my next upgrade while other incredible phones are getting released, phones with quad-core chips…it’ll be painful, but I won’t care ’cause I’ll still be using the SGN.

    If they wait to release this phone until December I think it is the worst mistake they could make. These specs are pretty great but they aren’t unbeatable, and coming around that 2012 corner are a lot of kick ass devices that are going to have better processor speeds and all will be packing ICS… would I love a Nexus device, of course, but to wait an extra month just because is idiotic.

          Yes it is 90 days.  But that has nothing to do with your Verizon account. You had 14 days to choose a different phone on that line.  You are stuck with what you have unless you want to pay full price for the Nexus or start another line on your account.  Sorry.

        • Jboku

          Yes, you can return the phone but you are not eligible for an upgrade that that point so you will have to pay the full $ for the other phone.  Not the 299

        Isn’t the 14 day return policy for people who buy at a Verizon store?

        • Jboku

          Any store you buy from goes trough verizon if you’re upgrading.  the upgrade price is only good for 14 days.  You can return it to the store for your $299 if they have a better “return” program but you will not be able to buy a phone on that line unless you pay full price.  Make sense?

          Yes.  But to change phones on a Verizon line no matter where you purchase you have 14 days to activate a different phone on that line.  Costco has a 90 day return policy and yes you can return it, but you are stuck as far as Verizon is concerned.   You don’t get your update back…..

    • Bionicman

      i actually went to COSTCO to buy the BIONIC because of this (and the acceroies deal) but i was 7th in line and they were only going to get 6. just my freakn luck. i had to return it before my 2 weeks were up.

      • Billy Jenkins

        lmao

    • Most aren’t putting this with your post. but so you see it. Verizon isn’t going to give you your update back just because you are able to return the phone back to Costco, unless you are within their testing period. So if you are past 14 days or 30 days whichever it is, then you aren’t going to get the Gnex for $299 you will have to buy it for full retail.

    I wanted the Galaxy Nexus as much as anyone, but I’m tired of waiting. “Later This Year” sounds like late Nov at best more likely Dec around Christmas. People need to give the Razr more love. I actually like the design/build better and Moto is first class in call quality/build quality. Plus Razr is sleek and thin and getting ICS in early 2012. I’m actually leaning toward the Razr.

        I hear ya, but a Nexus on Verizon is a combination that will very hard to beat. Plus it comes with ICS and is a developer phone.

        I am certain the Razr will do very well as it should but even with a head start I don’t think it has a chance of actually “beating” the Nexus.

        Lest you ever forget… Sheeps love their Nexus’s.

          Lets see about that 🙂 its hard to be moto on sales. As you have seem, the droid, droidx, photon atrix and the bionic is selling pretty good. Remember that the razor will have ics in 2 months.

    They’re probably holding off hoping for a method to make the phone un-rootable and more VZW branded. You know…cause they’re control freaks.

    Who cares bout this phone I wanna hear bout the next greatest thing

  • Tachhooomboobiiiii

    HEWL.

    YEAH.

    Thanks Verizon, I’m finally renewing my contract from my OGD.  Man, it just hit me that I’ll have 4G, an inch bigger screen, dual core, 4.0 ICS vs. 2.2, 16GB over 200 and some MB internal or whatever this thing has (FUUUUU!), 4 times the RAM, HD screen and video, first OS updates, and soooo much more.  All the waiting was worth it, MAKE EM SAY UHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!  =)

  • WHAT IN THE SHIT IS THIS SHIT ?!?!?!  

    Come on already!

  • Craig

    I’m not so sure what all the excitement is for this phone. I’m sure that once Verizon gets done it will be fully bloated and locked down. It’s a shame that Google can’t build a truly unlocked global phone that can be activated on any network.

    • KevinC

      you’re an idiot

      You will have the best device of the year then. The razor will have ICS about two month after release 🙂

      • Eddie

         Man, you are all over these RAZR comments! i personally cannot share your enthusiasm for a motorola device. yeah it is thin (except for the hump…) and the specs are nice (except for the screen…) but blur and the signed bootloader have turned me off of their products. i also do not appreciate being lied to, first about blur (oh, this isn’t “blur” anymore, just some “enhancements”) and then about unlocking their bootloaders which they blame on verizon but other phones on verizon have bootloaders that are not locked down so tightly. 
        also, an ice cream sandwich today is worth two tomorrow 🙂

        • Anonymous

          Blur is different now because of the 1 g of ram. Moto build quality is unmatched and the radios. I’ll wait for ics in January. The nexus will be out by December 31 anyways.

            Razr wont have ICS for atleast 2 months after the nexus is out if not longer.

    Question: are NFC chips expensive? This phone will most likely need an extended battery. If the NFC chip is built into the battery, then I hope it wouldn’t be more expensive to get an extended battery with an NFC chip in it.

    • Anonymous

      its actually built into the battery cover, kinda how wireless battery charging works. extended batteries with a new back will also likely have the NFC portion included on the new extended cover too.

  • Wwestonbrown

    I am glad they made some sort of announcement, but this does scare me somewhat. While I am now more certain than ever Big Red is getting this phone, the comment just has a weird vibe to it like they are leaving it open to be delayed for whatever reasons.

    “Later this year”…boy is that a scary way of wording the announcement. I mean, all signs have been pointing to a release within the next few weeks, but why can’t they just work this crap out and tell us already?

    • Anonymous

      I think they are still trying to clear out more Bionics, and since the RAZR can be pre-ordered starting the 27th they likely don’t want to have another phone sway customers and delay them making a purchase.

      • Anonymous

        Yes they want to rope some more unsuspecting customers into some Bionics. Most people won’t know these new phones are coming till the day they show up at the store.

  • Watch them Bing it, since it’s not a branded Droid… >_>
    or slather their ugly logo all over the place.
    Seriously, I’m okay with the 4G logo on the back, but I want a pure glass slate.

    I don’t trust Verizon with my phones.

    • You can’t put Bing on it google search is on top of the screen on all home screens its baked in

    • I don’t either, but to me it seems like this phone might go to all of the BIG 4. Don’t think they will do much besides something on the back. 4GLTE or Verizon.

      Maybe Google is finally laying down the hammer!

    • November was already announced

      • Anonymous

        No it wasn’t… Where did you read that?  They just officially “announced” that it would be by the end of the year. What you saw was their system showing a November date but that was never made official. 

        We don’t know exactly when it is coming other than by the end of the year.

        • they said it will launch in US, Asia, and somewhere else, in November at the Google Samsung event

          • Anonymous

            Verizon might not launch it till December according to insiders now

            Japan apparently will be getting it first in the world, and in the US, Verizon will get it first but they did NOT confirm when it would launch, they did say in November but that can be any other carrier in the world since they didn’t even show off the LTE version. And i’m sure they wouldn’t show off a buggy phone if that were the case.  In this case, its turning into the ThunderBolt all over again, it was buggy in demos at CES that they didn’t show everything, instead it was a video playing, and then eventually it dropped features that were shown off, and at some point it led up to many delays that caused a rollercoaster of rumored release dates to popup.  I think Verizon is trying to patch up some problems first then they’ll announce the date, price and availability (either by preorder or just online etc)  but given how Panda said there will be no preorders this time around, thats all up in the air.

          • the phone that was on the jib taking the videos that they were showing off was a verizon version. plus it’s on my the MAP

    thank god… sure there was all these signs pointing to it launching on verizon.. but any of you that have been an android fan long enough surely remember the nexus one.. on google’s official page listing “Verizon Spring 2010″… until verizon announced this I expected the worst… now I am finally at ease 🙂 I think nov 10 is the release date and they say later this year to not hurt sales of current phones

    very very good friday

      prob $550-589 since it has similar specs to the bionic so I can’t see it being more than the bionic full retail. Not to mention google seems to keep the nexus priced around $530 since thats what the nexus 1 and nexus s were priced at.

    So as an OGD upgader, can someone confirm that when I switch over to the Nexus, I will get 4G LTE with no (or minimal) additional charges as well as keep my unlimited data package?

    • Nope, you missed the unlimited 4g lte bandwagon last summer

      • Sinofue

        False. If he’s on $29.99 unlimited, he stays on 29.99 unlimited. 3G, 4G same thing.

        • A plan change is required to upgrade from a 3G phone to a 4G phone.  Since unlimited 4G plans are no longer available, there wouldnt be unlimited

        Guess I just want to keep it in the unopened, brand new condition when I put it up on ebay. I will use whatever money I get for it to buy the Nexus. 

        • Yea I guess ….its brand new don’t think if you open it and use it for 3 weeks you would get less for it…but that’s just me

    • Why wouldnt you activate the bionic you will still have the upgrade

      • Bniz719

        I don’t have an upgrade until March so I’m going to buy the Nexus off-contract. Brand new, unopened boxed phones sell a lot easier, and for more on ebay. It’ll save me a little money out of pocket when I go to buy the Nexus.

        • Why not sell it now.  It isn’t going to be worth more when the Razr and Gnex drop.

  • Mr_Snrub

    Verizon can’t give a specific date in 2011 because Apple hasn’t told them when it’s okay to release it.

    Damn, do I get excited looking at that gorgeous phone.

  • Also, this press release confirms it’s not EXCLUSIVE to Verizon.

    Typically, they play up their exclusive launches. This one doesn’t.

            In the future I imagine a Motorola Nexus! That will be nice!

            I feel im the biggest moto fan boy in the world lol. Now that i saw how nice stock ics looks, i would love to see a moto nexus. On the other hand, i like moto new user interface. Do you know which display is the best so far including the nexus.

            You mean bad things like Camera, Screen, lock ups, can only use their usb chargers?

            Motorola’s gone downhill, if you don’t see it, you’re no different than an Apple fanboi.

            I don’t care about unlock bootloader and you do, that’s why you still holding a grudge to moto.

            Um, I didn’t say anything about an unlocked bootloader lol.  I could care less about a locked boot loader, I don’t root.

            Moto just had 3 devices with bad display droidx2, bionic and droid 3. They are using amoled, putting big batteries in their devices and their devices have the best signal strength, build quality and great call quality. What else do you want a better software in the cam? You can always buy an iphone, which has the best cam.

            You sound like an Apple fanboi with this constant defending.  I’ve used Motorola for 8 years, I think I can make a decision to move away from their products now and not feel guilty.

      I have started removing apps that I don’t think I will use in the next month.  My poor beastie had a stroke a couple of months back.  Now the screen on the right edge no longer responds to my touch. 🙁   Yesterday, It went into schizophrenic mode:  Dialing people when I didn’t even have the phone in my hand, flipping through screens and/or freezing up.. I am hoping it will just hang in there long enough for the Galaxy Nexus to come out.  So release date can’t come too quickly for me.

      • bigrob60

        Mine started freezing up the other day also. Had to do 3 battery pulls & one reboot to fix it.

          I have been doing so many battery pulls & reboots, I forgot that it is not normal…

        I know exactly how you feel. My OG has been buggy for so long — I can’t imagine what it will be like to not have to hit an app like 4 times to get it to open, or to actually be able to answer a call with one swipe. I really hope the G’Nex isn’t a victim of Verizon’s CDD (chronic delay disorder)… I’m in danger of giving in to homidroidal tendencies and smashing this thing with a hammer! Or a baseball bat… Or a truck…

        • Jason

          I’m so over my OG! I’m pretty close to just “loosing” it and doing a insurance claim to get something for $50 till the Gnex comes out. Later this year sounds like Xmas time and my phone is almost unuasable. I don’t think I have hated a phone this much lol. It was good to me till about 4 months ago. Now I cuss at it and punch it lol sad I know

            The Jets are possibly, THE worst team in the league.  You can’t be a good team with the worst QB ever.  Maybe they should switch to the wild cat, where they’d have a chance.

      • LiterofCola

        Not necessarily, I have a feeling that it’ll still be in November, but they want to give the Razr a little hype time until they give the date for this beast.  This way, the public can be informed of both phones individually 

        • jagrid

          that’s exactly what i think. i think they just want people to “focus” on the razr for now… still be possible for the phone to come out on the 10th… im just thinking…

            ….are you retarded? the nexus is confirmed to come out this year. all the leaks say it comes out november. 

            the razr is supposed to come out next week but it seems more likely it will come out in november like the nexus.

          • Anonymous

            You are retarded lol. Does the nexus 1 brings a bell to your ears. Verizon said it will come to their network and it never did lol. Verizon loves the best devices and those ones are the droids.

          • Anonymous

            droids have bloatware. and we know the galaxy nexus will be for verizon because we have seen pictures of the backside with a 4G lte logo on the back. anyway you completely changed the subject, the nexus is coming out next month. not february. no one ever said this phone would come out in february. 

          • Anonymous

            I know they said that; but they also said before that they will have the nexus one and how did that turn out?

          • Peesa

            the reason the Nexus One didnt end up coming to verizon was because HTC was working on the Droid Incredible. And since the DInc was so similar to the nexus one, Verizon thought it made more sense just to release the DInc. So if that were to happen again, which it wont because there are absolutely no rumors or records stating that Samsung is working on a similar specd phone (except for the Galaxy S3, which wont come out for a while), then, and only then, would the GNex not come to verizon.

        • Jared Robinson

          I think the RAZR will do well… people may still want it knowing that in “only a couple of months” out of 2 years they have it they’ll have ICS.  The hardware is pretty slick on that phone. Certainly more so than the Galaxy Nexus.

          That being said, I haz n3rd wood for Galaxy Nexus (Nexus on VZW ftw)

          • Anonymous

            When the Razr comes out there will thousands that don’t even know there is such a thing as the Galaxy Nexus and they will buy it.  Still a fine phone so I’m sure they will be happy.

          • Anonymous

            The only thing that GN has is the NFC and that feature is pretty new. The beast named the Razor will be better than the plastic sammy device.

            I did like the Razr and if it didn’t have the encrypted bootloader I would have a hard time passing it up. I know some don’t care about roms but its been a big deal for too long for me.

            I do like the specs and thinness of the Razr. If Google opens up Motos phones to developers I can always buy one of those too.
