The successor to Google’s Nexus One is being developed by electronics giant Samsung and not HTC, rumours suggest.
According to Android and Me, sources familiar with the project have revealed that Google and Samsung will reportedly announce the Nexus Two at a press call in New York on November 8th. It will be the first device to run the stock version of Gingerbread, the rumoured 2.3 update we revealed last week.
The Nexus One launched earlier this year exclusively on Vodafone and performed well below pre-sale expectations, which forced Google to cancel plans for further branded devices.
However, this was proved to be false as it was reported yesterday that a second Nexus handset would go on sale in the UK this Christmas on multiple carriers exclusively through Carphone Warehouse.
Although there’s no way of being sure if Samsung’s announcement will be the Nexus Two or an entirely new device, the date of the event is too well-timed to not have any substance to it. We are giddy by the prospect for sure as the Samsung Galaxy S has proven that Samsung is well capable of making great smarties. Plus, they make the best super AMOLED screens out there, so there's that, too.
We will bring you more as soon as we have more details.
