Google’s Nexus One Android-powered smartphone was launched at the beginning of the year, but failed to make a big impact on the mobile phone scene for the company. Google eventually ceased to sell the smartphone directly and closed down its online Nexus One web store.
Now a British financial news publication City A.M., has stated that the search giant has made a deal with wireless retail firm The Carphone Warehouse to exclusively sell the Nexus Two.
“THE SECOND Google-branded mobile phone will hit the UK in time for Christmas through an exclusive deal with Carphone Warehouse,” the City A.M. article reads. It doesn’t give any further details about the Nexus Two other than it is expected to run on Android 3.0 (dubbed Gingerbread) and will not be made by Samsung.
“It is not yet clear who will manufacture it, although rumours surrounding a Samsung model are believed to be untrue.” 
Taiwan-based smartphone maker HTC produced the Google One.
