Galaxy Nexus India launch postponed to March 2012

The latest Googlephone, the Galaxy Nexus is yet to make its debut in India with many potential consumers eagerly anticipating its release. Back in December, it was reported that the Samsung Galaxy Nexus was slated for a January launch, after already being pushed back from a possible December release date. The reason for the delay, cited by Samsung was that there were many product launches in December; hence the brand had decided to delay the product from hitting the shelves. As per a Twitter post from Samsung India in reply to a comment by one of their followers, the company states, “Nexus is expected to be launched in March but we do not have the exact dates. Will update you once we get that information.” So one can expect the handset not to be launched officially any time this month.

One should not get their hopes too high, though as the brand does not confirm this information as anything concrete, with Samsung in a follow up tweet stating that, “We do not have the exact dates. So would update you about the same once we get more information.” The official registration page of the handset does not seem to be updated; with the status still reading ‘Coming Soon.’

Here is a look at the highlighted specifications of the Samsung Galaxy Nexus

As of now, this is still the only handset that is launched with Android Ice Cream Sandwich onboard, but with the Mobile World Conference just around the corner; one would expect Samsung to launch the follow up to the highly successful Galaxy S II, which is the S III at the event. Will this deter potential consumers from purchasing the Galaxy Nexus or would one wait a little while longer and purchase the Samsung Galaxy S III? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
