Nexus S leaks out on BestBuy.com

 

It was several months ago that Neowin broke word that Google was working on a Nexus 2 smartphone. After the Nexus One failed to make the splash that Google was looking for, many were surprised to hear that Google was pushing out a Nexus 2.

Phandroid.com recently spotted a Nexus S posting (presumably the Nexus 2) on Best Buy's mobile website which hints that the device could be landing soon. The website also claims that the Nexus S will be a Best Buy exclusive which likely means it wont take the approach that the original Nexus One tried to do, a multi-carrier national roll-out. 

Besides the name Nexus S, little is known about the device. While hints have suggested that it will be a Samsung based device, there is still no definitive answer and Google has not even admitted that the device exists.   

Update:

Looks like the Nexus S might have leaked out on Best Buy's site, Engadget spotted this picture hidden deep within the mobile site and it looks a lot like a Nexus branded Samsung Galaxy S. Could this simply be the same phone but without Samsung's TouchWiz UI?

A Samsung galaxy s with pure android yay, they'd better be selling it in the UK but finally I can buy myself an android smartphone (been holding off due to the rubbish UI's manufacturers throw on top)

I really hope it's not a Best Buy exclusive - all the Best Buy stores in the area do not sell T-Mobile phones in-store, instead they can only refer you to their website to buy a T-Mobile phone.

Is anybody else reading that as nexus ****s bestbuy? lol.

LOL now i see it! Nexus S hits Bestbuy! hahaha

I'm guessing its because of the S that people think it might be by Samsung? Nexus S - Galaxy S

All seems to be wild speculation and rumour still

No... S stands for Six

Nexus Six...

The scoop that gizmodo had a few weeks back based on someone who got hand-on with the prototype said it's basically a refreshed Galaxy S plus a thinner design. No word on the hardware at that time.

I honestly don't mind if it is a refreshed galaxy S design as long as the hardware is cutting edge. 1.2/3/5 ghz processor with a front-facing cam.

Btw, how did you get S= six? If anything, the S is a backwards 2, as in Nexus 2.
