Verizon announced last month to carry the new Samsung Galaxy Nexus handset, but the release date is still mysterious to us. Shortly before hearing about the release date, a leak came our way claiming that the first Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich OS powered Galaxy Nexus might be releasing on November 17th. As it is a Verizon branded LTE capable, this handset should be priced at $299.99. Membership warehouse retailer Costco is set to sell the Samsung Galaxy Nexus.
According to the leaked screenshot of Costco’s inventory system, the Samsung Galaxy Nexus handset will be available to purchase for $289.99 at Costco warehouse. That means you will get $10 discount on the original price tag of the handset. Of course, this is a contract based pricing and you should be committed with a new two-year contract agreement with Verizon Wireless. The leak hasn’t revealed the release date of the handset.
Everyday, we are hearing many news regarding the Samsung Galaxy Nexus. Yesterday, we reported about the download availability of the root image, recovery image and system dump files of the Galaxy Nexus handset. The handset comes with Android 4.0 ICS, 1.2GHz dual-core OMAP 4460 processor, 4.65-inch 1280 X 720 HD Super AMOLED display, 1GB RAM + 16/32GB Internal memory, 5MP AF with LED Flash with zero shutter with 1080p HD video recording capability, 1.3MP front facing camera for video call, Barometer, 4G LTE capability, 1750mAh battery and much more.
Here is the leaked memo of the Costco inventory system:
The Galaxy Nexus handset is also expected to hot Verizon on November 24th, but another leak is suggesting that Verizon will begin advertising the phone on November 15, with sales starting on November 17.
