November 17th? Nope. November 21st? Nope. Anytime before Black Friday. No again. In a rare instance, a Samsung Galaxy Nexus release rumor comes accompanied by actual evidence to support the claims. Those hoping for this phone next week turn away now. A new leak claims the Galaxy Nexus is now scheduled for launch on December 8th, with Verizon’s stock and demo units arriving shortly ahead of the official launch. Interestingly, the wording of the notice supposedly sent out to Verizon employees suggests that the release date may have originally been scheduled to occur sooner, as has been speculated, but for whatever reason December 8th is where we are now. No mention is made of any sort of pre-order.
There is always the chance things could change (for better or worse) or that this information is outdated (or fake). If you still don’t want to believe, there is the chance that this date only applies to in-store sales with a web-only launch coming a couple weeks earlier. We’re not holding our breath.
