A further sign that a new Nexus-branded smartphone is on the way emerged today, after snaps surfaced of a major retailer’s product listing for what appears to be a sequel to the Samsung Galaxy Nexus.
Sourced by Droid-Life, a screenshot purportedly of Carphone Warehouse’s inventory lists a handset imaginatively titled the Samsung Galaxy Nexus 2. Alas, that’s all it gives us to go on, so right now specs remain a matter for conjecture.
However, earlier leaks suggest that it is likely to pack a 4.6-inch display, an eight megapixel camera and a 1.5Ghz processor of the dual core denomination – something that makes it seem more than a little underpowered next to the current crop of Android so-called superphones.
In keeping with earlier Nexus kits, the handset is also expected to debut a new version of Android unadorned by custom skins – the iteration that’s being informally dubbed Key Lime Pie – and is likely to show its face at retail in November or December.
Carphone also lists a hitherto unheard-of iteration of Google’s Nexus 7 tablet, which packs 32GB of on board memory. That compares with just 8GB for the entry-level model and is double the storage of the current top-end iteration.
