Late last week ads leaked out on CNET’s CES page of a Sprint Galaxy Nexus, and today at CES 2012 it is official. Unlike the Verizon Galaxy Nexus, Google Wallet will be on Sprint’s Nexus. We’ve also seen in those leaked ads from Friday and Saturday that the Sprint Nexus would have a 1.5GHz dual-core processor instead of the 1.2GHz dual-core processor that the Verizon Galaxy Nexus and the GSM versions have. Sprint will only be offering the 16GB version, which is surprising since Verizon has a 32GB CDMA version of the Galaxy Nexus.

So why did Sprint announce it so far in advance? Their LTE Network won’t even be going live until around June, and that is only in 5 markets. What are your opinions on their announcement? As soon as we learn more about pricing and launch dates we will be sure to fill all of you in on it.

So who is next to announce the Galaxy Nexus? Is it AT&T or T-Mobile?

    The blurb is incorrect. Verizon’s LTE GNex is 32GB only.

    • Greg Wirtz

      Yeah, so we should get all upset lol.

      • Thanks for catching that guys, I really thought it was 16GB. I’ll fix it right now.

  • Can’t wait. Wanting to upgrade for a while. Now I just need a release date. Rumor is late Jan or early Feb.

    Will it be GSM on Sprint?

    • GSM phones do not work on Sprint, as Sprint is a CDMA carrier like Verizon is. So I am 100% sure it will NOT be a GSM device.
