Well, looky what just happened to stroll through the FCC - none other than the Galaxy Nexus for Sprint. The upcoming flagship for Sprint's LTE network appears to be identical in size to Verizon's version, making it a hair thicker than the GSM variant.


This actually offers little other details about the device, aside from the fact that it has been given the stamp of approval by the US Government, which means it's one step closer to hitting the Now Network's shelves.

Perhaps we'll get more info from Sprint at the annual CTIA convention in May, if not sooner.

    Why not just wait for the Samsung Galaxy S3 coming before the Olympics? It will have a better, bigger screen, better camera, and thinner. Samsung is a major sponsor of the 2012 Olympics. Their rumored plan was also to have a multi market launch of their phone.

      Hey great minds think alike. I really just hope its an updated gnex. Big screen, no buttons, exnyos and im pretty much sold. I'm tired of qualcomm chips promising so much then not delivering. The only question is when the s3 will make its way to carriers.

        That IS the question.  We'll never buy a phone if we wait for the next great thing.

  • Stiggy

    Not sure if I should pull the trigger on this or wait forever and see if sprint gets the galaxy s 3.

      I would honestly get the Nexus. I have a Nexus S and while it is technically not as specced out as most of the phones now, it still has the smoothest Android experience, best app support, quickest updates, etc.

        Right except the nexus s doesn't even have ics ota (like that really matters though). I do like the aosp- ness of the nexus, but only if that's ics. I could never stand an aosp rom because they don't have a fucking phone with smart dial. I hate using replacement apps too because none of them are as consistent or well made as stock. Having said that, I know the s3 will have cm9 of some sort on it if I want that experence anyway so its the best of both worlds. Pardon typos, on a tablet.

    Good journalistic style. l'm tired of reading things on the internet with no author or publication date.

    I'm good with my E4GT for the time being. Glad I didn't wait for this to come out.

  • Samu

    Is it that hard to just announce a release date

  • Toshistation

    I too will wait for the GSIII. I mean, sure the GNex is a great phone, but it will be six or seven months old by the time it comes to Sprint, and I can only imagine that the GSIII will be a quad core, maybe even with Samsung's new folding AMOLED screen. Just makes more sense to wait, IMHO.

  • Isidhu

    I am probably buying this one for one of my lines next month Hopefully. SG3 will take a while if it is anything like the SG2 release. another line will be going for an upgrade later this year maybe it will be sg3 maybe not.
