The Samsung Galaxy Nexus, Google’s flagship Android phone, will soon be available in the U.S. from another CDMA carrier: Sprint.
Sprint’s version of the Galaxy Nexus will include a faster processor, a dual-core 1.5GHz SoC rather than the Verizon’s 1.2Ghz. It will also support Sprint’s LTE “4G” network, such as it is. Additionally, the Sprint Galaxy Nexus will come with Google Wallet onboard, which Verizon blocked as to push its own NFC payment system, a move well within Verizon’s SOP.
No word yet on a release date, but pricing will likely be the same as Verizon’s – around $300 with a two-year contract.
