Samsung Galaxy Nexus Could Arrive at Best Buy On Dec. 11

Galaxy Nexus at Best Buy Dec 11

Still itching to get your hands on Ice Cream Sandwich? Well, the Samsung Galaxy Nexus may be just over a week away now, according to this leaked image believed to be from Best Buy’s internal inventory.

The retailer’s system shows that Samsung’s much-anticipated Android handset is scheduled for a December 11 launch on Verizon Wireless. The device was previously rumored to launch on December 8 — alongside the Motorola DROID 4 — and that still might go ahead, with Best Buy receiving its initial stock from Verizon a few days later.

As you may have noticed from the dimensions of this device, it’s a little thicker than the Galaxy Nexus that recently launched in Europe. That’s because it’s packing Verizon’s 4G LTE technology, which adds a little extra bulk to the device’s waistline. It’s certainly not much, however, measuring in at just 9.47mm as opposed to 9.34mm. And it’s a small price to pay for 4G speeds.

There’s one thing we must point out before you get too excited: As noted by Engadget, December 11 is supposedly the date the Galaxy Nexus will hit the Best Buy stock room, and it could be a couple of days after that before the device actually arrives on shelves in Best Buy stores.

Even so, at least we’re a little closer to pinning down the device’s release date for the U.S.

Are you still waiting to get your Samsung Galaxy Nexus?
