It looks like we finally have a hard date for the release of the Samsung Galaxy Nexus – at least for the folks in the UK.
Samsung Mobile’s official Twitter account tweeted that the Galaxy Nexus will “roll out across Europe” from November 17th.
The last rumor we heard about a UK release date was that it was to be November 16th. That was based on an online smartphone retailer’s website. It looks like they were a day off, as that tweet makes this thing official.
The phone will arrive unlocked, as well as initially available on the O2 network. If you look on the Amazon UK site, the 16GB Galaxy Nexus is available for pre-order for £549.99. You can also see confirmation of the November 17th release date:
There’s still no official word on a U.S. release date, but some leaked documents have pegged it as early as November 10th. We can’t imagine that it would be too far removed from this November 17th European roll-out.
The Galaxy Nexus (previously codenamed Nexus Prime) will boast an giant 4.65 inch screen running at 1280×720 resolution – a true Super AMOLED HD experience. It will sport 1GB RAM and a 1.2 GHz dual-core processor. It is a thin phone – only 8.84 mm thick. There are no mechanical buttons on the phone, instead everything it built into the massive touch screen.
