I guess you are right about the snapdragon version, didn't think of that. Google prolly already has the source for the new Qualcomm CPUs anyways as they are probably in the new Nexus devices being made.

As for the GT-I9100 - AFAIK they were gonna release it anyways but people were being bitchy and wanting it ASAP. The fact that we got leaks earlier on suggest they were at least working on it from long ago but people were just impatient because their SGS2s didn't updates right away compared to newer phones that Samsung still needs to actively support :)


Yeah, very true it did have quite a few leaks over the dev time. Some over at XDA can be quite impatient :p

Come on, there's no source at all on that site which means it's just link bait. Be a bit more critical people.

I wonder if this will sport the Exynos 5 or Crapdragon 600 rebranded S4 Pro chip. And as always, it won't obviously be sold in the rest of the world..

Heard they are calling it a Nexus phone now to. At least what The Verge said. If so, then I may have my new upgrade in August. :) That is if it comes to Verizon as well.

No more AOSP on Verizon! They control too much to make it work as Google intended. :(

So there will be no more Nexus devices on Verizon? My GNEX has always worked just fine.

It works but if you noticed you guys took forever to get updates which "fragmented" even the Nexus line which Google doesn't want. Google doesn't have access to the radio controls for CDMA because it's only licensed to carriers (aka Verizon/Sprint). As a result they need to send the AOSP code to Verizon then V will check it out and then "tweak" it to make it work then it gets released. Those changes however doesn't get back to AOSP because only Verizon is licensed to the code.
