It looks like the LG Nexus 4 may wind up being the only Nexus device announced this month as rumors of a Samsung Galaxy Nexus 2 were squashed today as its rumored model number was revealed to be a device called the Samsung Galaxy Premier.
Last month, a device called the Samsung GT-i9260 surfaced and because of its specifications, was rumored to be the Samsung Galaxy Nexus 2, a sequel to the original Samsung Galaxy Nexus. However, a German website called MobileGeeks discovered that the device is not the Galaxy Nexus 2 and in fact, the GT-i9260 is a phone called the Samsung Galaxy Premier which doesn’t appear to be a Nexus.
Instead, as the photo reveals, it’s a mid-range Galaxy-branded device and not something crafted under the watch of Google.
As was previously rumored, the Galaxy Premier features a 4.65-inch HD Super AMOLED display – similar to the Galaxy Nexus, Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean, 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 8MP rear camera, and a microSD card slot – which is something that Nexus devices generally do not have. All in all, it’s a solid device but it doesn’t look like it’s the Samsung Galaxy Nexus 2.
Now, this certainly doesn’t mean that a Galaxy Nexus 2 isn’t out there somewhere. We have heard that HTC, Samsung, and Sony might be joining LG with Nexus smartphones this year and it’s possible that the Galaxy Nexus 2 might still be under wraps. It just won’t be coming out in this form.
Instead, the only true Nexus device that has been rumored is the LG Nexus 4 which, in the past week, has surfaced numerous times for the world to see ahead of its rumored October 29th launch date.
The LG Nexus 4 is expected to feature a 4.7-inch display uses a 1280×768 resolution, quad-core processor, 8GB of storage space with no microSD card support, 2GB of RAM and of course, some version of Jelly Bean, presumably Android 4.2.
