Google drops Galaxy Nexus to $399 at the Play Store

Google’s Andy Rubin just posted in the official Google Mobile blog that they are now offering an unlocked Samsung Galaxy Nexus for only $399 over at the Google Pay Store.

That price translates to about Php17k at current exchange rates. That’s really cheap!

Samsung Galaxy Nexus specs:
4.65″ HD Super AMOLED screen @ 1280×720 (315 ppi)
TI OMAP 4460 1.2GHz dual-core processor
PowerVR SGX540
1GB RAM
16GB and 32GB internal storage
HSPA+ 21Mbps, HSUPA 5.76Mbps
WiFi 802.11 b/g/n
Bluetooth 3.0
NFC
5MP autofocus camera w/ LED flash
1.3MP front-facing camera
1080p video recording at 30fps
1750mAh Li-Ion battery
Google Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich

First available in the U.S., Galaxy Nexus costs $399 and arrives at your door unlocked, without a carrier commitment or contract. You can use it on the GSM network of your choice, including T-Mobile and AT&T. It also comes pre-installed with the Google Wallet app which lets you easily make purchases and redeem offers with a tap of your phone. Best of all, we’ll give you a $10 credit to get you started with your new mobile wallet.

There’s one minor problem though — the devices section of the Google Play Store (https://play.google.com/store/devices) is not available in the Philippines. Either you ask a friend or relative in the US to buy it for you or you can use a US IP address to gain access to that section of the Play Store.

    HUH? Galaxy Nexus S is also available on Globe. Tsaka anong konek ng tanong mo? This is an unlocked GSM version, gagana to kahit saang may GSM service at sim card.

    wag aanga-anga teh.

      May nakikita po ba kayong “S” sa post dito? Ako po wala. Magkaiba po ang Galaxy Nexus at Google Nexus S. Nagpapatawa lang po siguro kayo.

      Wala pong Galaxy Nexus S. “Galaxy Nexus” po siguro yung tinutukoy niyo na nahalo niyo sa “Nexus S”. Mas bago po yung “Galaxy Nexus” at exclusive po siya sa Smart teh.

      Pero may point ka din po kasi GSM unlocked po ito so wala ngang connect siguro yung tanong ni kuya, teh.

    • John G says:

      Fail naman ng rebuttal ni WAT. Galaxy Nexus S pala ha? Hahaha.

    • JKisaragi says:

      Nexus S – Globe exclusive
      Galaxy Nexus – Smart exclusive

      I think what theflo is aiming at is that we may see a price drop from Smart (the only official source of the Galaxy Nexus here in the PH), or maybe they’ll offer it free at a lower plan.

      says:

      Pwede niyo po gawin is mag-proxy to have a US IP address tapos order po kayo gamit is an electronic debit card. Pero ang shipping details po eh iaaddress niyo sa isang forwarder sa US like POBox, Johnny Air Cargo, etc. tapos sila na po bahala magship sa Philippine address niyo. I just don’t remember where pero may article si sir Yuga dito about that.

      Madaming hassle pero sure na makakatipid kayo :)

    nyay sayang naman, sana magkaron din ng unlocked version dito sa mga local stores natin, kahit mejo mas mataas ng onti pa ang presyo

  6. Bon says:

    It should be cheap. It has NO MicroSD card slot.

  7. Eco says:

    Mga sir, kung gusto niyo bumili mura din sa Hong Kong, mga HK$ 3000 to 3500 lang ito since last March pa. Sa exchange rate ngayon na appx Php 5.60 is to HK$ 1.00 lumalabas pasok siya sa Php 20,000. Kung may kakilala kayo pupunta sa HK pwede magpabili.
    Yun presyo na 3.5K ay with official warranty at yun masmababa ay walang official warranty.

  8. Jon says:

    What are the benefits of an unlocked phone like the GN? It needs a reliable network for you to be connected 24/7 and maximize the use of the phone right?

  9. Mark Tesch says:

    Hey guys,

    Anybody know where we can get it at the following price locally, even online? Aside from Widget City that is. Are there any other sites that offer the Galaxy Nexus?
