Verizon may launch Galaxy Nexus, DROID 4 on December 8th

Verizon Wireless may be planning to launch two new high-end Android smartphones early next month, leaving current flagship models like the DROID RAZR and iPhone 4S to lead its lineup during the biggest shopping weekend of the year. Droid Life on Wednesday published what appears to be a screenshot of an internal Verizon Wireless memo. The document indicates that Verizon will launch the Samsung Galaxy Nexus and the Motorola DROID 4, which appears to resemble a DROID RAZR with a slide-out QWERTY keypad, on December 8th just ahead of the holidays. The release date is unconfirmed for the time being, though Verizon is expected to make an official announcement early next week. The Samsung Galaxy Nexus will launch as a Verizon Wireless exclusive in the United States, but it is expected to become available from additional carriers in the near future. A purported screenshot of the internal memo follows below. More →

Images and details surrounding the unannounced Motorola DROID4 for Verizon Wireless have been published on the web, revealing a potential QWERTY-equipped counterpart for the just-unveiled Motorola DROID RAZR. The phone appears to carry the same shape as the new RAZR, however its slide-out keyboard makes it significantly thicker. Purported specs include a 4-inch display, 4G LTE compatibility for Verizon Wireless’ network, 1080p HD video capture support, an HDMI-out port, a secondary front-facing camera and Android 2.3.5 Gingerbread. Droid Life speculates that the phone might also include the same 1.2GHz TI processor as the RAZR, and that the rear camera resolution matches the RAZR’s 8 megapixels. Two more images of the DROID4 follow below.
