Samsung’s Galaxy Nexus smartphone was banned from sale in the US earlier this week, the device was removed from Google’s Play Store, and Google noted on their store that the handset would launch next week with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.
Now Google has confirmed that the reason the Galaxy Nexus was removed from sale is because of the lawsuit between Apple and Samsung, Google confirmed this to ABC News.
Google also told ABC News that the Samsung Galaxy Nexus would be available next week as we had heard previously, the device will come with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, and we presume Google and Samsung will have made enough modifications to the device to ensure it doesn’t infringe on the Apple patents in the ongoing lawsuit.
It isn’t clear as yet exactly what modifications will be made to the device, whether the installation of Android 4.1 Jelly bean is enough or whether additional modifications have been made to Android on the device.
