Google and Samsung jointly announced last night the much anticipated Galaxy Nexus, which will be the first smartphone to run Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. Although no particular carrier was mentioned for the device, it’s long been rumored that Verizon opted out of the Samsung Galaxy S II to get first dibs on the Galaxy Nexus, and now it looks to be confirmed in a set of pictures from Google employee Romain Guy.
Guy took photos of the Galaxy Nexus handset that was used to take the time-lapse images and videos for the unveiling event last night. The photos were intended to reveal the gear and setup used to capture the footage, but also revealed the Galaxy Nexus clearly emblazoned with Verizon’s 4G LTE symbol on its backside.
