Galaxy Nexus Release Date: Smartphone Will Not Be Available On Sprint?

Sprint has enjoyed much success with the release of Apple’s iPhone 4S on its network, but it is likely that the new Samsung Galaxy Nexus will not contribute any more to it.

The new Galaxy Nexus smartphone was unveiled this morning at Samsung and Google’s “Mobile Unpacked” event which took place in Hong Kong.

It was announced that the handset will be available on both LTE and HSPA+ networks, but unfortunately for Sprint, not on WiMax.

WiMax is Sprints 4G ready network and it will not have access to LTE until the middle of next year.

This means that the Galaxy Nexus will not come to Sprint, at least not in November.

Its network is currently experiencing data issues due to the influx of iPhone 4S’s now running on it.

Sprint is known for releasing some of the most impressive Android handsets, so by it not having the Galaxy Nexus, some of its fans are sure to be disappointed.

Samsung together with Google hosted the “Mobile Unpacked” event where they announced that the upcoming Galaxy Nexus smartphone will be available sometime in November.

They also confirmed the smartphone's official name as the Galaxy Nexus.

The new device will sport impressive specs including a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, a 4.65-inch Super AMOLED display and a 5 megapixel camera capable of filming in 1080p HD.

It will also be the first device to run on Google’s new Ice Cream Sandwich OS.

The Galaxy Nexus will feature a unique curved design with a slip resistant hyper-skin backing.

It will also include NFC (Near Field Communications), and perform on LTE networks and possibly HSPA+, according to the demand for the smartphone.

The smartphone’s 4.65-inch screen video in a 16:9 widescreen ratio rivaling HD televisions.

In terms of hardware it easily trumps the newest iPhone 4S.
