Verizon Samsung Galaxy Nexus SCH-i515 to come with no carrier branding?

While Verizon is still quiet regarding the launch date of its LTE-capable Samsung Galaxy Nexus, we’ve just discovered a press shot depicting the carrier’s version of the world’s first Android Ice Cream Sandwich smartphone.

Unsurprisingly, the Galaxy Nexus for Verizon (model number SCH-i515) looks just like the one seen when Google has officially announced the handset. What’s of interest is that there’s no Verizon logo on the front of the SCH-i515 and, according to Droid-life, neither on its back. But maybe that shouldn’t come as a surprise, since neither of the older Nexus phones had carrier logos on them.

If previous rumors are to be believed, Verizon should launch the Galaxy Nexus on November 10 – thus after the Droid RAZR, but probably ahead of the HTC Rezound. We’ll let you know when we have new info on this.

    To be expected… the one showcasing the video and camera in Hong Kong had only a Verizon LTE logo on the back panel of the phone.  Google and Samsumg put the kibosh on Verizon’s bloatware in exchange for the privilege to have their hands on it first, after turning their back on the Galaxy S2.

    Ok, “4G LTE” may belong to Verizon, but it isn’t the Verizon logo itself.
