Is Samsung's New Galaxy Nexus 2 Currently In Testing?

Photos appeared online over the weekend that appear to have been taken with a Samsung phone that is yet to be announced. And the device seemingly continues on with Samsung's Nexus naming system.

The data attached to the shots say they were taken with a "GT-i9260", which you might reasonably expect to be an update of the phone known as the GT-i9250, better known as last year's Galaxy Nexus. Given that we've previously heard about this i9260 model and we're expecting Samsung to contribute a new Nexus this year, it all makes perfect sense.

The images, which are still sitting up there on Picasa, don't give us any more information, although it's nice to imagine we're seeing a bit of the wall and floor of some top secret Samsung testing laboratory in Korea. [GSM Arena via Techradar]

    Isn't HTC making the Nexus 5 this year?

    That looks like Mumbai in the window.

    "Nexus" isn't Samsung's naming system, it's Google's. The Nexus One was made by HTC and the Nexus 7 by Asus.

      and the Galaxy Nexus, made by Samsung. It is Google's naming scheme though.

      Yep, pretty sure Gary never said it was Samsung's... The only reference to naming conventions is to the 'GT-i9250', which is... wait for it... the Samsung Galaxy Nexus!

        ie. Samsung’s Nexus naming system, as distinct from HTC's Nexus naming system, ASUS's Nexus naming system etc...
