Samsung have released an extended battery for the US Galaxy Nexus. I know the US and EU versions have a slightly different shape, so was wondering if this extended battery would fit my UK Galaxy Nexus? Or if there's a version which would fit?

Where did you read they have a different shape? –  Shawn Dec 19 '11 at 14:55
    
@shawn I think I've seen it on Droid-Life. For some reason, I don't think they are compatible –  Bryan Denny Dec 19 '11 at 14:56

Oh! I now remember: the LTE version is already thick as it is because of the additional LTE antenna. So putting a LTE battery in a non-LTE version might be too big. I can't confirm if it will work or not, so hence a comment instead of an answer –  Bryan Denny Dec 19 '11 at 14:58
    
In the ad I saw for the extended battery it came with a new cover, so perhaps it would work anyways? I'd say just go for it, and post your experience as an answer. :) –  Shawn Dec 19 '11 at 14:59

Engadget has a great comparison shot of the battery differences between the HSPA+ and LTE versions in their review of the Verizon (LTE) Galaxy Nexus. The short answers seems to be 'no'; the link you provided is to an extended battery for the LTE Galaxy Nexus and therefore wouldn't be compatible with your HSPA+ version.
