Leaked DoCoMo document reveals new Nexus phones from Samsung, LG and Sony

Competition in the smartphone arena has always been good for consumers, not only between different operating systems but also between manufacturers. Now Google seems to go a little further, by opening the Nexus franchise (read: pure Android experience) to any brand willing to apply.

We have been hearing about Google's plan to launch multiple Nexus smartphones this year for quite some time and now a leaked document from Japanese telecom operator seems to have confirmed that.

According to a report in blog Android Noodles, Samsung, LG and Sony will be launching Nexus smartphones this year. NTT DoCoMo's winter line-up has revealed the device named as Samsung Galaxy Nexus II, LG Optimus Nexus and Sony Xperia Nexus:

從網上最新流出的 2012 冬季 DOCOMO 將會推出的 新 model 列表中發現到三部 Nexus 設備,其中有: Sony SO-04E:Xperia NEXUS・Xi・NEXT・NFC(TypeA/B/C)、LG L-08E:Optimus NEXUS・Xi・NEXT・キャップレス防水・NFC(TypeA/B/C)、Samsung SC-02E:GALAXY NEXUS II・Xi・NEXT・NFC(TypeA/B/C) 。早前有消息指 Google 會在今年推出5款 Nexus 設備,今天的 Samsung Galaxy Nexus II、Sony Xperia Nexus、LG Optimus Nexus 和 早前發布的 Nexus 7及 Nexus Q 剛剛好就是5 款設備

The Samsung Galaxy Nexus II was also leaked a few days ago as GT-I9260, which is minor revision to the existing Galaxy Nexus. It will feature 4.65-inch Super AMOLED HD display, 1.5GHz dual core processor, 8MP rear camera, 1.9 MP front camera and 16GB internal memory with microSD card slot.
