Galaxy Nexus Release Date Confirmed


Despite all the rumours we've been hearing to the contrary, Samsung confirmed today via press release that the Galaxy Nexus will be on sale in the UK on the 17th of November.

As to what their definition of "on sale" is, only time will tell. We're hoping to be pleasantly surprised, but our sources would indicate limited stock in the hands of a select few and only yesterday were telling us to expect proper stock levels to appear some time after the 21st.

No news as yet as to whether we'll be treated to another ninja unboxing - which is the highlight of any Nexus release :lol:.

Have you preordered a Galaxy Nexus yet? Do you plan to? Let us know in the comments!

The full release, should you enjoy reading such stuff, is after the break.

SAMSUNG CONFIRMS GALAXY NEXUS UK LAUNCH DATE
Samsung’s Galaxy Nexus device coming to UK shores in November

Xth November 2011, London, UK – Samsung today announced the first smartphone to feature Android™ 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and a 4.65” HD Super AMOLED display, the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, will be available in the UK from Thursday 17th November.

The Galaxy Nexus™ is the first smartphone to feature a 4.65’’ HD Super AMOLED display with a market-leading resolution of 720p (1280x720), ensuring vivid colours and excellent picture clarity. The Galaxy Nexus also comes with a 5 megapixel camera and new rounded design that measures just 8.94mm thick and features a minimal 4.29mm screen bezel.

The Galaxy Nexus features the latest version of the Android platform, 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich), which brings an entirely new look and feel to Android. It has a redesigned user interface with improved multi-tasking, notifications, Wi-Fi hotspot, NFC support and a full web browsing experience, while introducing new innovations such as ‘Face Unlock’, which uses facial recognition to unlock your phone. It also comes with integrated Google+™, allowing you to ‘hang out’ with friends and talk over Google+ Messenger. Google™’s services are connected to the cloud, keeping your email, contacts, and other data synced across your devices.

The latest handset from Samsung and Google is designed to provide a “pure Google” experience and users will be the first to receive software upgrades as they become available. It also features a number of Google Mobile services, including: Android Market™, Gmail™, Google Maps™ 5.11 with 3D maps and turn-by-turn navigation, Google Earth™, Movie Studio, YouTube™, syncing with Google Calendar™ and a redesigned Google+ app.
The Galaxy Nexus also features an ultra-fast 1.2GHz dual core processor and HSPA+ connectivity, providing superior power and speed.
Simon Stanford, Head of Mobile, Samsung UK and Ireland said: “The level of interest and anticipation surrounding the release of the Galaxy Nexus has been fantastic. The collaboration with Google to launch the world’s first smartphone featuring Android Ice Cream Sandwich and a 4.65” HD Super AMOLED display is evidence of Samsung’s continuing passion for the smartphone market and commitment to delivering innovative devices. We’re delighted to introduce the Galaxy Nexus to the UK and are looking forward to seeing it in the shops on 17th of November.”
The Samsung Galaxy Nexus will be available on the 17th of November 2011 in a range of UK retailers.
