The Samsung Galaxy Nexus rumor mill has turned up another juicy tidbit about Verizon’s forthcoming 4G LTE variant. A new flash ad has surfaced on several Android related sites, showing the Samsung Galaxy Nexus priced at $ 199.

The new price is substantially lower than the $ 299 price which has been floating around since mid-October and gives the Galaxy Nexus a huge price advantage over almost all of Verizon’s other LTE enabled devices.  We’re not sure if Google has anything to do with the price reduction, but it would be nice to have a high-end LTE device on Verizon’s network that doesn’t break the bank.

There’s still no word on an official release date for the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, but the possibility of a $ 100 reduction in the price should bring a smile to most of your faces. Consider it a Black Friday discount on a phone you can’t buy for a few more weeks.
