Sprint Confirms Galaxy Nexus And Adds LG Viper To List Of First LTE Smartphone Offerings

Sprint has announced the first of many LTE smartphone offerings to compliment their new 4G LTE network. The first to make its debut, is none other than the Samsung Galaxy Nexus. We can’t say we didn’t see this one coming, especially after its accidental leak in an online ad. They didn’t release a full on spec list of the Sprint Galaxy Nexus but it does appear to be a smaller 16GB model and will include Google Wallet (something Verizon felt the need to leave out). Along with the Galaxy Nexus tease comes the announcement of another LTE smartphone for Sprint, the LG Viper.

The LG Viper is another NFC packing, Google Wallet friendly smartphone, built with recyclable materials:

  • Android 2.3 (Gingerbread)
  • 4.0″ WVGA touchscreen
  • 1.2 GHz dual-core processor
  • Dual cameras: primary 5.0 MP and front-facing VGA

These two flagship smartphones, along with the Sierra hotspot, will be the first devices to run on Sprint’s 4G LTE network. With Sprint having the only true “unlimited” network, coupling the speeds of 4G and the power of these devices, you could end up with one happy union.
