Samsung Announcing Android Gingerbread Successor To Nexus One On November 8th?

Authored by: Douglas Carter — Oct 28, 2010

The Android news sites are buzzing with rumors and word that Samsung is going to be announcing a new Android device on November 8th in New York City. Even more interesting is that there are some rumors floating around that the device Samsung will be revealing will be the successor to the Google Nexus One, which might be called the Nexus Two or Nexus S.

All rumors I have read so far indicate that the phone, whatever it is called, will feature Android Gingerbread pre-installed and will feature an unaltered Android experience.

City A.M., a UK-based newspaper, posted a story that the Nexus Two will be sold exclusively in the UK through Carphone Warehouse.

Meanwhile, Radio Android reports that a tipster made contact with them on Tuesday and indicated that the next Google phone would be called the Nexus S, and would feature hardware very similar to the Galaxy S line already enjoying much success. They believe the phone will have the same screen and processor as the Galaxy S handsets. In additon, they say it should come with capacitative buttons on the front instead of traditional ones.

AndroidandMe wrote a story not too long ago asserting that Samsung would have a Gingerbread device out to testers sometime this year, with a possible release next year. Now AndroidandMe believes that the devices might be one in the same, and that a launch on several carriers is coming soon. In addition, AndroidandMe notes that they spoke with "multiple, trusted sources familiar with the project" that confirmed the details.

Invites for a Samsung Mobile Android product unveiling event went out earlier this week. In addition, the statue of a gingerbread man appeared at the Googleplex earlier this week. This whole idea feels very possible to me, and Samsung's success with the Galaxy S line of phones put them in a good position to be chosen by Google to take on as big of a job as this.
