Last week the Samsung Galaxy Nexus LTE for Sprint was accidentally leaked in an advert that was published on CNET’s website. The ad was promptly pulled offline then, but not before word got out about the device. However, as of today, Sprint has confirmed that the phone will indeed be on its way: according to a Sprint landing page, the Galaxy Nexus will be one of Sprint’s first 4G LTE phones.
While most of its specs will be the same as Verizon’s own LTE Galaxy Nexus, there are some differences between the two phones. Firstly, Sprint’s version will feature Google Wallet – something that Big Red doesn’t have on its version of the phone. However, Sprint’s Galaxy Nexus will only have 16GB as opposed to the 32GB on Verizon’s model. Worth the trade off? That’s for you to decide. At least you still get unlimited data on Sprint.
The Galaxy Nexus LTE will arrive when Sprint’s LTE network launches later this year. Stay tuned for more details.
