Say it ain’t so: Samsung to axe the 32GB GSM Galaxy Nexus?

If you’ve been passing up the 16GB GSM Galaxy Nexus for the larger 32GB that’s been looming around the corner, you may want to rethink your decision. Rumor has it that Samsung has halted production of the 32GB GSM Galaxy Nexus, possibly due to production costs. XDA forum member and Expansys USA employee Corey L recently posted the following on the XDA forums:

We’ve just been notified this morning that Samsung have dropped the Galaxy Nexus 32GB from production. At this time it looks like they will not be releasing it. Not good news at all.

Given the niche audience the Nexus line generally attracts, it’s not that far fetched. Though, still sad if true. Of course, you can also take this with a fair serving of salt pending an official word. Until we hear it directly from Samsung themselves, nothing is for certain.

Have you been holding out for the 32 Gig unit? Would you settle for the 16GB model if this turns out to be true? Let us know your thoughts below.
