Leak mentions LG, Sony, and Samsung Nexus devices
posted by Michael H. / Aug 21, 2012, 5:19 PM
The leak shows what is said to be the Winter 2012 release schedule for NTT DoCoMo in Japan. In addition to a slew of devices from NEC Casio, Panasonic, Fujitsu Toshiba, Sharp, Kyocera, HTC, Huawei, ZTE, Nokia and LTE, the leak shows some interesting listings for LG, Sony, and Samsung. It lists the Samsung Galaxy Nexus II, which we heard about earlier, but it also lists an LG Optimus Nexus, and a Sony Xperia Nexus.
There isn't really any info aside from the names. All three are listed as having NFC, which is expected of a Nexus device, and are part of the Xi series, which is DoCoMo's LTE service. The only other interesting bit is that the LG Optimus Nexus is expected to be waterproof.
What do you guys think? Should we believe it?

Hell yeah! that's what I'm talking about, any brand other than Samsung should be good and nice enough, sick of Samsung for so long already, their Nexus devices feel so generic and cheap, yeah samsung's trademarks.

Love what Sony brings..... I would be very interested In a Sony with stock Android. Wonder why more handset makers must don't put out stock Android. Who says Skins make the Android experience better, especially with the improvements in ICS/JB?

Moto can't make a NExus device for a while Google is trying not to show favoritism toward that OEM if they got a contract for a Nexus device all other Android OEMs would go Apes**te.

Don’t agree with that comment.... If Google just opened the Nexus program to other OEMs there should be no issues with Moto making one too. I welcome the idea every OEM making a "Vanilla" Nexus device.

Google are laying off Motorola's employees. There is the possibility that Google just want to acquire Motorola's patents.

Carriers destroy Nexus devices with bloatware and no updates or 8 months too late look what Verison did to the SGN what a shame

Nexus didn't have any bloatware on Verizon. Plus who really needs OTA updates when it takes maybe 2 minutes to root a phone and flash a ROM. My Nexus on Verizon has zero bloatware, and I've been running 4.1 for over a month now with no problems.

This^ I don't understand why everyone complains about the Verizon Galaxy Nexus not receiving updates. Did anyone actually think Verizon would OTA everything faster JUST because it's a Nexus? The reason I bought the Nexus is so I didn't have to rely on big red to make decisions for me. When I wanted Jelly Bean, I had it. That being said I will never buy another Nexus from Verizon but that's more about my data plan than anything....

Let HTC make a Nexus just don't let them put sense 4 in it, have them keep it stock.
