Galaxy Nexus To Be Sprint’s First LTE Device?


According to this ad that was seen on, the Samsung Galaxy Nexus will indeed be heading to Sprint. While this is definitely exciting news, there are a few things that are making us question the accuracy of the ad. Namely, it says that the phone has a 1.5 GHz processor and that the phone will be Sprint’s first LTE device.

As you may recall, the HSPA+ and Verizon’s LTE versions of the phone have a 1.2 GHz processor. Of course, the chip inside the current Galaxy Nexus was technically built for speeds of up to 1.5 GHz, so maybe Sprint’s Galaxy Nexus will just be the first one to push the device to its limits (hopefully).

But the processor isn’t our biggest concern. It’s the fact that it will have LTE. Now, don’t get us wrong, we would love to have LTE on a Sprint Galaxy Nexus. But the thing is, Sprint has confirmed they aren’t rolling out LTE  until mid-2012. By then, the phone will be going up phones with quad-core processors. But if the ad holds true, I guess it’s better late than never right?
