Samsung Galaxy Nexus seen going beyond US

Samsung's Galaxy Nexus (Nexus Prime) could go beyond the US quickly if a Wi-Fi Alliance certification (PDF) is any indication. The Android 4.0 flagship was cleared on Thursday as the GT-i9250M; the "M" badge is usually reserved for Canada-localized Samsung phones. The Galaxy S II in Canada, for example, is the GT-i9100M.

Not much can be gleaned from the certification by itself, although it does show 5GHz 802.11n Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi Direct sharing support. The new Nexus should have a 4.65-inch, 720p screen, a dual-core processor and possibly a fast five-megapixel camera.

Google and Samsung will reveal the Galaxy Nexus on October 19 in Hong Kong. It may be a Verizon exclusive in the US, but the Wi-Fi plans hint that Canadian and other international versions may not just be in the works but ship quickly afterwards. Google unveiled the current Nexus S in December last year but didn't start selling it in most other countries until April. [via XDA-Developers]
