The Samsung Galaxy Nexus will go on sale in the UK next month, one of the UK’s biggest carriers has confirmed.
O2 has updated its ‘coming soon’ handsets page to include the third Nexus branded phone, along with the just unveiled Motorola Razr and HTC Sensation XL – all of which are listed as launching in November.
The network has yet to announce a price for the Galaxy Nexus. But does state that it’ll be ranging the version of the smartie with HSPA+ support to allow would-be buyers on O2 to surf the web at speeds of up to 21Mb.
Unveiled last week after months of febrile anticipation in the tech press, the Galaxy Nexus is the first-ever phone to run the latest Ice Cream Sandwich version of Android, which melds the best features from the tablet-optimised Honeycomb iteration of the platform with the current-gen Gingerbread take on the OS.
It’s also home to a gigantic 4.65-inch SuperAMOLED HD display, a 1.2 GHz dual core processor and a five megapixel rear-facing snapper with video recording in lush 1080p HD.
Alongside O2, Three and Vodafone are both on board with the Samsung Galaxy Nexus from launch in the UK.
Tesco Mobile has ruled out the phone for the short term, while partner networks T-Mobile and Orange have yet to make an announcement one way or the other.
