Samsung Galaxy Nexus II, LG Optimus Nexus, and Sony Xperia Nexus all coming this year?
A while back a rumor did the rounds that said that Google would launch no less than five different Nexus smartphones this fall, to celebrate five years having passed from the initial Open Handset Alliance announcement.
However, months went on and we’ve heard nothing about any new Nexus smartphone. Until today, that is. Earlier the Samsung GT-I9260 leaked, and it looked like it would be but a minor revision to the Galaxy Nexus.
Now some leaked documents that allegedly come from NTT Docomo, Japan’s biggest carrier, show no less than three Nexus devices on the way for this year. There’s the Samsung Galaxy Nexus II, which we can assume is the GT-I9260, but also the LG Optimus Nexus, as well as the Sony Xperia Nexus.
Of course, these are just the Nexus phones that are headed to NTT Docomo. Google may actually announce five devices, and NTT may have picked just three of those for its upcoming lineup. Or this could all be fake information.
We can’t be sure just yet. But if Google does go through with a multi-manufacturer, multi-device Nexus launch this fall, it will be interesting to see how Samsung, Sony, LG, and the (supposed) others will differentiate their respective handsets.
