A Verizon flash advertisement seems to have prematurely leaked the price of the LTE-enabled Verizon Galaxy Nexus.
According to the ad, which can be seen below, the Verizon Galaxy Nexus will go for $200 on contract.
The Verizon Galaxy Nexus ad was first brought to attention by Smart Keitai. According to the site, “This ad clearly wasn’t meant to go out, since clicking on it takes you to a page where the Galaxy Nexus is no where to be found.”
Android Police says that the ad which indicates the price for the Verizon Galaxy Nexus is “real”.
The publication writes:
“Nobody is really sure what it means at the moment, but we definitely know the ad showing the Verizon Galaxy Nexus for $199.99 is real. As in, It’s not fake since it’s showing up on Android sites across the web (we’ve spotted it here at AP, at Phandroid, and DroidForums to name a few). These ads are run by NetShelter, which is a premium advertising network that deals directly with carriers and manufacturers and does not mess around – we know them all too well.”
The Galaxy Nexus (first known as the Nexus Prime) was launched by Google and Samsung on October. It is the first smartphone to run on Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) and is only the third Nexus phone.
Most were expecting the Galaxy Nexus to be priced at $300 on a new two-year contract.
