Verizon Galaxy Nexus (Prime) won’t have OEM customization
While we still don’t know when exactly Verizon’s Samsung Galaxy Nexus will be released (no one knows, actually, or at least no one willing to make the launch date public), we do have news regarding the upcoming superphone.
Droid-life has uncovered a “competitive comparison” sheet that likely comes directly from Verizon and shows the Galaxy Nexus next to other high-end 4G Android smartphones which are already available in the US: AT&T Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket, AT&T HTC Vivid, Sprint Samsung Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch, and T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy S II.
One of the selling points that Verizon plans to advertize for the Galaxy Nexus is the fact that its User Interface has “no OEM customization.” So users will get stock Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, with no extras from Samsung or Verizon. Of course, this isn’t exactly a surprise. After all, we’re talking about a Google Nexus smartphone here.
The leaked sheet also shows that Verizon’s Galaxy Nexus (or Nexus Prime, according to Best Buy) will have 32GB of internal memory.
We will let you know when the largest US mobile carrier finally decides to unveil the new handset’s launch date (it could be December 8, but that’s obviously unconfirmed for now).
