Sprint Samsung Galaxy Nexus to arrive with 32GB of memory, not 16GB

Sprint Samsung Galaxy Nexus to arrive with 32GB of memory, not 16GB
Sprint kind of announced that it’s getting an LTE-equipped Samsung Galaxy Nexus some time this year, but it was so scarce on the details that initially we expected the handset to come with 16 gigs of internal memory. At least, that’s what the carrier’s website said, but this was recently corrected and the Sprint Galaxy Nexus is now listed featuring double that storage - 32GB.

There are some other interesting things about the Sprint-bound device - it’s processor clock speed has been bumped up to 1.5GHz, up from 1.2GHz on other models. Of course, it’s also packing LTE radios to work on the Now Network’s brand new LTE network which is expected to make a debut in the middle of 2012. That’s about when we can expect to see the Sprint Galaxy Nexus as well - there’s no clarity on the release date, but it’s reasonable to expect the device to launch on an already existing network.

Are you willing to save your money and wait for the device that long or has something else at CES captured your gadget affection? Let us know in the comments below.

Not bad for a 1st LTE device for Sprint, lets just wait and see how the rest of the summer rolls out with other LTE phones.

The Galaxy Nexus is just Sprint's appetizer for their LTE network. Next Gen Evo is due for it.

Yes its the same cpu.. Verizons version is 1.5 ghz, but its clocked down to 1.2 ghz..

no, its the other way around: the Sprint version has a higher clocked cpu than VZW and the other versions

Ummm no. The verizon version had to be clocked down cause of heat issues..It has a 1.5 ghz in it

I think this is a great phone to start off the new LTE service. and i like how it has a faster processor and bigger space. I wonder how well this will do with sprint's unlimited plan? I'm gonna say well.

Just release the damn thing sprint! It's not like your gonna ton of lte coverage anyway in the 2nd quarter if ever. Let us atleast enjoy ics while it is still new and if you get us all covered with lte which I doubt will happen it the next 2yrs that would be great and it will be time for a upgrade!

An LTE phone on a network with no LTE service. Makes perfect sense to me.

Well how much sense does selling 4g phones in markets with no 4g service? How much 4g coverage was there when the Evo 4g was released? People still bought the phone because it's other features, the same reason people will buy the GN before the lte network is mature. As a matter of fact most of us will be buying the GN this summer without lte coverage in our areas buddy. So what's the difference with now or later? Either way 90 % - 95 % of us still won't have lte coverage this summer but we will own a GN.

Keep dreaming and hoping for the best. Sprint talks a lot but never seems to deliver. Their promise of "an aggressive LTE rollout" was/is heavily centered on Lightsquared bringing their LTE towers online. Unfortunately it does not look like they are ever going to be able to gain FCC approval.

Like I said, just sell the damn phone now and you can use the money you make to speed up getting denpendable LTE service or LTE service provider. I dont think LTE is what they are waiting for, I believe they want to release the next Evo first because if the GN comes out first most people who are ready for an upgrade will spring for the GN. It would be a no brainer to me, the next Evo will be equal or a mild upgrade to the GN at best but without the piece of mine knowing you will get all the upgrades pretty quick with the GN.

On Sprint, it will start at between $300-$350 then they will realize after not selling to many, all their customers are cheap so they will drop it to about $250. or better yet, radio shack will offer it for $100 less and everyone will go there because everyone wants great high end smartphones for pretty much free because they are "entitled" to it.

sprint sells there high end phones for at tops $200 for new customers and add-a-lines $250 for upgrades

Don't you have an echo to go play with? Also, upgrades and add a lines are always the same price from Sprint, it's when you go to a best buy or something they can change the price like that, or for people like you who go to wirefly or amazon and they do that kind of pricing but not Sprint. I say $300 to $350 because this is a high end device with something Sprint has never seen before. Why wouldn't they price it that much? They did when the Touch Pro 2 came out at $400.

Still need an app like DoubleTwist to get music on it since Samsung hasn't filled the void yet.

Sprint already is filled with issues in it. It has been into debt and so many negative news has been published on the web and now it is trying to join with Samsung. samsung who is already struggling with legal case by Apple and a straight dip in its mobile sales. This is a very comical venture, they can never success in this tough smartphone competition. Smartphones needs better looks with a smooth technology, not like the outdated samsung androids.
