Samsung has reportedly canceled plans to launch a new version of its Galaxy Nexus smartphone. The South Korea-based consumer electronics giant had plans to release an updated version of its pure-Google GSM phone that included 32GB of internal storage, but major retail partner Expansys says Samsung has informed it that production of the new handset has been canceled. “We’ve just been notified this morning that Samsung have dropped the Galaxy Nexus 32GB from production,” an Expansys spokesman posted to the xda-developers forum on Tuesday. “At this time it looks like they will not be releasing it.” BGR reviewed the Galaxy Nexus last November and called it our “favorite Android device in the world.” The sleek smartphone features a 4.65-inch Super AMOLED 720p HD display, a 5-megapixel camera, NFC and Google Wallet support, and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
