Verizon Wireless has backed off the deal on the Samsung Galaxy S II and is not going to offer it. The good news is this has happened for a reason - Verizon will jump on the next best thing - Samsung DROID Prime.
The next Google phone is believed to be made by Samsung and should be announced soon as Nexus Prime. The Nexus Prime is supposed to pack similar or even better specs as the Galaxy S II and run on Android Ice Cream Sandwich, so the Verizon's users won’t be disappointed.
The rumored model name is SCH-i515 DROID Prime and the targeted launch is somewhere in October.
According to BGR the info comes from a trusted to Verizon Wireless source, but there is no harm to take all this with a pinch of salt. It's also interesting this spicy piece of intel leaks just before the Galaxy S II launch in the USA, but we guess everything will start making sense soon.
