Rumors about the third Nexus branded smartphone started arriving months ago. All the hints pointed at a device named Nexus Prime.
But Samsung and Google launched a device that was named Galaxy Nexus.
We now hear reports that the phone might end up launching in the US market as Nexus Prime instead of Galaxy Nexus.
Samsung is already selling it as Galaxy Nexus in some international markets (Europe).
Verizon has confirmed that the device is coming to their network. But the exact launch date is not out yet. Online reports point to December 8 as the launch date. And we now think that the device would lack the Galaxy branding in USA!
