Samsung Galaxy Nexus to Cost $290 in the US

The Ice Cream Sandwich flavored Samsung Galaxy Nexus, which is the latest Google experience handset, was unveiled last month. However, the carriers as well as the manufactures have been pretty tight-lipped about the US launch date and pricing. Google only revealed that the new Nexus will be available stateside in November.

Now, Android Police has leaked a screenshot of Costco’s inventory, which suggests a price tag of $289.99. Since Verizon is listed as the carrier, it is likely that the official price will be Verizon’s standard $299, with Costco subsidizing the difference.


Samsung had earlier announced that Nexus will go on sale across Europe on November 17. The unlocked version is already available for pre-order on Amazon UK for £549.99. Hopefully, folks in US and Canada will also be able to get their hands on the Galaxy Nexus around the same time.

The Galaxy Nexus sports a 4.65 inch HD (1280×720) screen, and is powered by a 1.2 GHz dual-core TI OMAP processor. It will be the first handset to ship with Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0), although both Motorola and HTC have announced that their latest handsets will be updated to ICS.
