Verizon was the first wireless carrier in the US to get the Samsung Galaxy Nexus back in December, but now its time for another company to offer the Android 4.0 smartphone. Sprint announced today that it will begin selling the Galaxy Nexus in its stores on Sunday, April 22nd.
The hardware for the Sprint version seems to be about the same as the older Verizon version. It still has a 1.2 Ghz dual core processor, 1 GB of memory, 32 GB of storage, a 4.65 inch touch screen and more. The Sprint version supports both its current 3G network and its upcoming LTE network, which is expected to launch in a few US cities later this summer.
Pricing for the Sprint version of the Galaxy Nexus will be $199.99 with a two year contract. However, the price for the phone is technically even cheaper than that, thanks to the smartphone's Google Wallet feature. Sprint customers who sign up for a Google Wallet account within a week of activating the Galaxy Nexus will get a $10 Google Wallet credit immediately, plus another $40 in credit in three weeks. The special offer ends on May 22nd.
You can go ahead and pre-order the phone from Sprint's website. Pre-orders will have the Galaxy Nexus shipped to them on Friday, two days before the official launch of the smartphone.
