Sprint Galaxy Nexus specs leak, no bump in processor speed

Sprint Galaxy Nexus specs leak, no bump in processor speed
Before a new smartphone is launched, a carrier must first make sure that its employees are well familiar with the device. Same is the case with the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, which Sprint is expected to release later this month: tipsters say that the carrier is already running training sessions with its personnel. And what a great opportunity for some insider intelligence to leak on the web, don't you think?

Sure enough, we have some information regarding the Samsung Galaxy Nexus for Sprint. Below you will find its full specs sheet, along with an overview of Google Wallet. Sadly, there appears to be no bump in processor clock speed, as it was previously speculated. The smartphone's dual-core chip is clocked at 1.2GHz just like it is on the Verizon model. The rest of what is said on the leaked image is stuff that we already know: 4.65-inch Super AMOLED HD display, Android 4.0, and LTE connectivity.

As much as we wish it was present on one of these slides, a Sprint Galaxy Nexus release date is nowhere to be seen. Thankfully, it won't be long before the smartphone hits the market, if rumors are to be believed. The smartphone is expected to be made available for purchase between April 15 and April 22.

My upgrade is due, I think it's today. But I can't see myself buying into this. It's too late for one, the G-Nex is like half a year old, that's not fresh in the phone world anymore, and it's made more obvious with all the phones set to be released in the summer which isn't too far away now. Next thing, and the real deal breaker, is 4G LTE for Sprint probably won't be in Miami for now. I can't work with Sprint's s**tty 3G, I keep it off on my Epic Touch (GS2) and kept it off on my EVO 4G cause it's slow as hell and drained the battery faster. I wish I could just use up my upgrade now so my next would be due around early 2014 but this would be a bad choice.

Really no point in buying it if your area has not LTE from Sprint and you'll be stuck with their slow "3G" network. If you can even call it that.

funny thing is Sprint's network has gotten so bad for me on the road recently that I've been seeing a "1x" symbol sometimes, since the 3G is so dead slow. The internet is near unusable with Sprint's 3G, it's like having dail-up on your PC in these times, maybe worse. If I can't pick up 4G or in a WiFi area I do without internet unless I really need it, cause the 3G radio being on a nasty drain on my battery.

This thing better be 99 dollars or 149 tops! Since there is no bump in processor speed atleast make it the dual core 1.2 Exynos then I will consider paying 199 but chances is are I will wait for the SGSIII or the HTC EVO One or move on to new carrier with more LTE coverage, I have had it with sprint being a day late and a dollar short.

The HTC Evo One is at least coming out in June as per the rumors. The Samsung Galaxy S III might not be out until best case scenario early Q3 but more likely late Q3. I have a Samsung Galaxy Nexus & that phone is super sweet, just play with one & see for yourself.

Yeah for the international version of the Samsung Galaxy S III, now the U.S. version should fall around what I stated above.

Hey man thanks, I really don't get why he is asking that question? Who really cares who thumbs who up? Does it really make a difference? Has he been made thumb up monitor? I come to PhoneArena.com for FUN. It's really not that serious that people need to be questioning who thumbed who up. Ohh by the way I just thumbed you up, I hope shadowcell approves! lol

And you thumbed yourself up again. Don't you see how childish that is?

taco50 it's childish to even waste your time to type anything to that regard. I really couldn't give crap about thumbs up or thumbs down. To prove a point I will purposely thumb myself down just to show that I really just don't care. I am here to post about things that I care about. The thumbing up or down is strictly extracurricular and nothing more. Why you care I have no idea? To me it's just silly & foolish that anyone would question anyone about thumbs up or thumbs down. Guys it's really not that serious & as a matter of fact it's just plain old weak! Guys, please come to PhoneArena.com to have fun not to b*tch about who is thumbing who up or down. I can't believe I even had to say that, & he has the gall to call me childish! lol

SuperAndroid I still gave you a thumbs up again! lol. In fact, I decided to give myself one too. This is very amusing and helping me pass time.

what happens when 4G LTE is not available...Wi-Max or EV-DO? (ew!)

14. EclipseGSX

EV-DO just like if you aren't in a 4G area on Sprint now

All right then. Good that they kept the specs the same. Now if they can just not charge 300 freaking bucks like Verizon is still charging, we'll be set.

That price point is killing its sales on Verizon

Not a device that appeals to me at all. Its not something I could live with for the next 2 years on a contract. Just too ordinary compared to a BB10,GS3,HTC ONE X ori5.

Well out of all those phones you mentioned, the Samsung Galaxy Nexus has the most ROMS. Meaning that if you are into the root scene the Galaxy Nexus is the ONLY way to go. So if rooting is your thing the Samsung Galaxy Nexus is by far, a way better choice than all those models combined. Now if you couldn't care less about rooting then get whatever floats your boat. Simply the Samsung Galaxy Nexus is a very versatile phone that gives you many options like PURE Google, a very heavy & strong root community with countless different ROMS to keep your phone fresh for the next 2 years & then some!

Given that most of these phones haven't been released yet I'd say that's an understatement.

I agree and i love it how people compare a phone that has been out for 5 months to ones that have yet to be released lol. People nowadays just make me giggle inside from their stupidity.

As far as a sprint customer is concerned, it hasn't been out 5 months. It's being released this month, and it is being compared to phones that will be released at most within 2 months of this phone...A fair comparison I believe. It doesn't stand up to the competition unless you are just the biggest fan of stock android and unwilling to root an upcoming phone to fill your demand. Really disapointing phone release for sprint here... Sprint's One X variant seems the best of the bunch based on rumors (Battery), so not all hope is lost. I can't imagine anyone buying this phone because of how awesome the phone is, but maybe if it's priced competitively, it can find a market.
