Despite being the new flagship Android smartphone running the latest version of the operating system, the Galaxy Nexus has had a troubled start to its shelf life. Now it seems the Verizon Galaxy Nexus release date may have been delayed, with possible LTE issues.
Although Verizon had never given an actual date for the Galaxy Nexus release it was expected to be available by now. Ok it is a slightly different handset to that which was launched to the UK market, but recent tips and speculation have been hinting at a launch this coming Friday, December 9th.
The guys over at Droid Life have been told by sources that the handset may have been delayed again, and the news has come from a variety of different sources. First up an Equipment Guide for the new handset was yesterday showing the device to be available on the 9th, but has now changed with “launch date is coming soon”.
Then other sources have suggested that Verizon were delaying the handset because of some 4G LTE issues emerging only yesterday. Since then more sources from a variety of regions told the site the handset was set to be delayed.
Verizon Wireless could just being holding fire with regards to the launch of the Galaxy Nexus to make sure there are no problems with it. Earlier today we told you about another possible bug that may be affecting the handset. This followed the much publicized volume bug that affected versions of the device over in the UK.
As we said before there has never been any official date given for the Verizon version of the Galaxy Nexus. Are you waiting for the Galaxy Nexus from Verizon?
