The clock ticks 12 and it’s Rumor time! Google and Samsung are rumored to be announcing a Nexus Two Android phone on November 8th in New York. Samsung has already sent out some invites to the tech community for a mysterious press conference. All we know about the event is that Samsung will launch a “new Android device”.
As with Google Nexus One, the expectation is that Nexus Two will feature the latest hardware and most current version of Android – which will be Android Gingerbread aka Android 2.3!
Taylor Wimberly from Android and Me is the person behind the
rumor report that Samsung, not HTC, will announce the N2 on 8th November. This news comes from various “trusted sources”.
Over the years, Wimberly has had considerable success rates when it came to rumors and predictions, but this one can, at best, be considered a strong rumor. Wimberly claims that N2 will be launched on multiple carriers.
Google though, had made it clear much earlier that Nexus One was their first and last self-branded and marketed phone. But that wouldn’t stop them from partnering with seasoned manufacturers like Samsung to come out with a successor for N1.
