Verizon’s Galaxy Nexus Shipments Headed to Stores, Retail Packaging Pictured?

Now this is what we have all been waiting for, the arrival of the 4G LTE Galaxy Nexus on Verizon in stores (or at least on their way). Our sources have told us numerous times over the weekend that this Friday (December 9) is looking like the day, so with devices potentially shipping to stores now, we are surely closer than ever.

And how about that packaging? An all-white unmarked box with red interior? Could you be any more subtle? Any chance that the logos are embedded into the box like one the Rezound and are just not seen in this picture? Or are these boxes still needing to be printed on? No idea, but I’m loving it.  More pictures after the break.

Cheers Mooem, Nick and Jul!

      Yeah, Manginas do that.

    So are those headphones in the packaging? I haven’t gotten headphones with a phone in so long. Despite their crappiness, I was always a little jealous of UK people for getting them with all phones.

      Looks like there are headphones above the battery in the box. Hard to tell but by process of elimination, I’m assuming.

      Where do you see headphones?? Maybe I am missing it..

      You do realize that the picture isn’t direct on? Making the phone appear thicker. Nice try trolling though, I have missed your comments and watching you get flamed.

          First off we really should work on your grammar. Now that that is out of the way, please elaborate on how the Nexus will be a failure? I’d love to hear your opinions and get a good laugh.

      It’s really not that funny anymore.  Really.  No seriously.  You’re the only one laughing.

      On a serious note, wouldn’t it be better to contribute some kind of useful opinion or thought to the droid-life comment discussion? Pro or negative nexus, either way…but a coherent logical thought nonetheless.

      • Anonymous

        What are you talking about? I gave these geeks useful information about the rezound and they seem to ignored it. They just want the nexus because it will be unlock not because the device is a beast. Why dont you contribute to the discussions? Show us what you got before trolling.

          I think the nexus is the best choice of the three based on the software support from Google.  I’ve played with the Rezound and the Razr and while I give Moto props for making blur smoother and more enjoyable, the fact remains that the bootloader is going to forever be locked and encrypted.  That doesn’t appeal to me, I want to be able to use MY phone as I like, not how Moto feels I should be allowed to.  As far as the Rezound goes, it’s very clear that Sense has become morbidly obese, let alone bloated.  If a skin/interface can bog down a phone with those kinds of specs?  Too resource intensive.  On the bootloader front, HTC has a history for allowing JUST enough room for devs to get in and crack it wide open, so I can’t complain too much there…but the simple fact remains that the Nexus is getting rave reviews from all who use it.  Is some of that hype?  Absolutely.  However, I have yet to read a negative review of the phone.  Where there is hype, there is disappointment, and so far none of those who have used the phone appear to be disappointed.  Add to that direct support from Google and an easily unlockable bootloader?  You have a winner.

          You’re certainly entitled to your opinion, but you seem to lack the ability to back it up with any substantial evidence or logic.  In other words, you’re muddying up an otherwise (mostly) decent group of android fanatics who want nothing more than to celebrate the beauty of open source software and a true contender for the iOS devices.

          Come at me, bitch.

            There is no reason to cry. You are the bitch the way. As i have said before ICS will be great in the Nexus, but remember the old nexus will have it as well. If you see the review about the razr, most of us the normal people will buy it because the device is fast enough that we will not care about the boot loader crap. I can understand that you wanted to change the kernel in order for the droid to run smooth, but those times have passed. The nexus went backwards, instead of Samsung making the nexus the best device; it is still inferior to the gs2. Geeks do not actually care for specs, they just want the boot loader to be unlocked and that is one of the reason they like this plastic device.

          • GotSka81

            I agree with you 100%…the Razr is a fantastic phone that your average user will be thrilled with.  It’s light, fast, and does everything an average user could ever want to do.  However, it’s important to note that Droid-Life is not a blog for your average android user.  Looking at the historical data for the polls on previous posts, Droid-Life users are more “geeky” and prefer ultimate control over their devices.  Does the GN NEED to be rooted and/or replace the kernel?  Not at all.  Do I WANT to be able to do those things?  Absolutely.  I believe in the freedom to choose what I can and can’t do with my electronic devices (as long as it’s legal).

            You finally attempted to explain some logic behind your statements…but you clearly are making inflammatory statements (Nexus = Thick) with the sole intent of trolling.  Is the Nexus thicker than the Razr?  Of course!  The Razr is designed to appeal to an audience that desires the thinnest phone they can get, so it’s an extreme example that sacrifices one feature (removable battery) for another (minimal footprint).  Is the Nexus a thick phone because it’s thicker than the Razr?  No.  Relative to most other smart phones, it’s average if not leaning to the thin side.

            PS – if you’re not familiar, “Come at me, bitch” is just an expression.

            I do agree with you also, when you mentioned that this blog it is not for regular users, but they mentioned all type of device for Verizon. I did not have a problem with these geeks changing the kernel and rooting, when we used to have just 516 of ram 1g MHz etc. They manufactures are making the devices so fast that to be honest i love ICS, but i can live with the New Moto UI and even touch wiz if it comes to that point. My problem with the nexus is that it should have been identical to the GS2, but Samsung took a step back putting pentile, bad camera and thicker. I have been saying all along that the nexus just have ICS and the freedom going for it, but when it comes to specs, the razr and rezound has the upper hand by a big mile. By the way you get your facts straight unlike other geeks in here.

            Yes because I want it for reasons that you do not care about.  To each their own.  I want a unlocked bootloader.

    The white box might be sleeved.

  • Anonymous

    I’m sorry, but that’s not the finished retail packaging, which means these are not shipping yet.  The finished product will have some sort of logo on the front.  I just can’t support the thought that Verizon’s going to ship the new flagship Google device in a plain white box with no labels.

    And since we have no evidence of any stores getting these, this article is null.

    • Binglut9

      What you mean the rezounds box was all black no brand…..I believe this is the retail packaging

      • justin thomas

        sure was

        Nope.  The top of the box said “htc” at the bottom.

    All white box seems odd for retail packaging but I guess there could be a sleeve for the box that is not pictured.
