Rumors of a Google Nexus Two that started off a week ago seemed to have been finally debunked. It started with Gizmodo, and then the major media magazines. Most recently, however, a Samsung official said it is simply not true.
The rumors hit an all-time high a couple days ago when Gizmodo published a rendering of the Google Nexus Two which was basically the Android skin on a Samsung Galaxy S phone (pictured above). So if you were expecting that the November 8th Samsung special event was to announce the Google Nexus 2, don’t hold your breath. Our best bet would be that it’s to unveil the Samsung Continuum smartphone that features a secondary ticker-style screen.
Although there will be no nexus Two, the rumors do show that with the introduction of Android Ginger Bread, a new reference design is expected. Almost as certain is that Google and Sony Ericsson will introduce Android together as a gaming platform – with a Playstation mobile based on Android Ginger Bread.
With Samsung’s press conference on November 8th 2010 we will know for sure if Samsung has made a Nexus Two, but we do know that Samsung will be announcing a new Android handset.
With Google already having stated TWICE publicly that there are no more Android phones coming from Google, we may need to let this rumor die. Sure, we know a lot of readers are now thinking that maybe Samsung was never contracted to build a Google phone and we could in fact hear of a Motorola Google Nexus Two sometime in the near future. However we honestly doubt it as the big G has already said no, and being a publicly traded company they wouldn’t lie about this because if they did, investors would sue for misinformation.
