Sprint announced they would be carrying the Samsung Galaxy Nexus LTE way back at CES in January. But as is all too common with these type of early announcements, they neglected to tell us exactly when it might be available and for how much. The Sprint version of the Galaxy Nexus passed through the FCC recently, which is usually a sign of an impending launch. And we may now have a clue as to an actually release date.
According to this document obtained by The Verge, it points to an April 22nd release. The document is said to originate from a Sam’s Club store, and may not reflect Sprint’s actual sale date. But at least we have more of an idea than “mid-year” when Sprint’s LTE towers actually go live.
Sprint’s Galaxy Nexus is nearly identical to the Verizon version of the device. The only differences being the confirmed addition of Google Wallet and a rumored bump in processor speed to 1.5Ghz.
Additional tidbits of info say that the LG Viper, Sprint’s other LTE device will be out on April 15th.
