Samsung to unveil Galaxy Nexus on October 19th

Samsung on Thursday sent out invitations to a press conference in Hong Kong where it is expected to unveil its Galaxy Nexus smartphone alongside Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. The South Korea-based electronics giant has not made direct reference to the new smartphone, however a recent teaser video published by the vendor left little doubt that the third-generation Nexus smartphone would be the star of the show. Samsung was initially supposed to unveil the device at its Unpacked event during the CTIA Enterprise & Applications conference in San Diego, however the company canceled the event due to Apple co-Founder Steve Jobs’s untimely passing, which occurred just one week earlier. BGR has issued numerous exclusive reports regarding the Galaxy Nexus, the most recent of which painted a nearly complete picture of the phone’s key specs. Samsung’s event kicks off at 10:00 a.m. local time in Hong Kong, or 10:00 p.m. Eastern Time on October 18th.
