More Next Nexus Rumors: Hands-on With the LG Nexus, Plus Samsung, HTC, and Sony Rumored Again

We aren’t even a full week into October and already, the next Nexus rumors are starting to flood in. It’s tough to tell which should be taken as pure speculation or semi-truth, but we wouldn’t be doing our job if we didn’t share them with you. Plus, who doesn’t love a good Nexus rumor? After all, this is the one phone (or potentially more than one going forward) that we look forward to each year.  (more…)

Galaxy Nexus Drops to $50 at Verizon on Two-year Contract

Still contemplating the purchase of a Galaxy Nexus on Verizon? How does $49.99 sound? Big Red appears to have dropped the price to that today after adding a “Promo” discount on top of a long-standing “Online” discount. We don’t necessarily think that this means a replacement phone such as the Galaxy Nexus 2 is on the horizon, but is instead a sign that Big Red is cleaning house to make room for the Galaxy Note 2, RAZR HD (and MAXX HD), Spectrum 2, Lumia 920, HTC 8X, and of course, the DROID Incredible X - all of which should be available by the end of November.

The Galaxy Nexus remains one of my favorite phones of all time even with its atrocious battery life. You just can’t beat the developer community that comes with a Nexus.

Photo Taken With Samsung Galaxy Nexus 2 (GT-i9260)?

The GT-i9260 could potentially be the Samsung Galaxy Nexus 2. Since the original Galaxy Nexus rolls with the model number GT-i9250, it would make sense that the next version of it would jump up in numbering sequence. To add to that thought, remember that Samsung almost always keeps follow-up phones on a similar model number scheme, much like we have seen with the Galaxy S (i9000) to S2 (i9100) to S3 (i9300).  (more…)

Will There be a Galaxy Nexus 2 Made by Samsung? Maybe, but This Concept Will Most Certainly Not be It

Every once in a while, we write up a story with one goal – to head off another story that’s floating around before it gets out of hand. That’s what we are doing today, with this Galaxy Nexus 2 rumor. It goes a little something like this.

One of our favorite sites to browse from time-to-time, Concept Phones, posted up the picture we have included above, calling it the Galaxy Nexus 2. They were clear that it was simply a concept and not real, but a few sites picked it up here and there over the weekend to talk about the possibility which has led to certain religious-based sites (that will remain nameless) thinking that there actually is a Galaxy Nexus 2 on the way. They even attempted to get into details about Google and Samsung partnering up again, and that the device would launch with Android 4.1, Jelly Bean. Get right out of town!  (more…)
