Announced towards the end of 2011 and finally arriving on the Verizon wireless network late last year, the Samsung Galaxy  Nexus 4G Android smartphone is now available to Sprint wireless customers in the United States. That handset arrived on the Sprint platform in the US on April 22 this year, and recently Sprint unveiled their new 4G LTE network, providing the Galaxy  Nexus 4G with a true 4G platform. The handset was the first to deliver the Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) Android version 4.0 operating system out-of-the-box to a United States smartphone, and the current version 4.0.4 is delivered to the Sprint Galaxy  Nexus 4G.

That Sprint Galaxy Nexus 4G delivers Near Field Communications (NFC) functionality out-of-the-box, providing wireless support for popular applications like the Google Wallet retail payment processing app. Another popular wireless application which uses NFC technology is the Android Beam data share app, which passes data, snapshots, applications and other info from one Android Beam device to another with a simple tap between the two handsets. This is the first case of Android’s ICS OS being available out-of-the-box for a Sprint smartphone, and that handset also delivers a high resolution display and the most out-of-the-box built-in data storage of any 4G smartphone.

Running 4.65 inches the Super AMOLED display of the Sprint Samsung Galaxy Nexus 4G is one of the largest found on any smartphone. Pixel density runs 316 pixels per inch for an overall screen resolution of 720 x 1,280 pixels. Both of those designations are at the high end of the 4G smartphone marketplace, and that display uses more than 16 million colors to render visuals. A protective layer of scratch resistant and glare reducing Corning Gorilla Glass overlays the screen.

A Texas Instruments OMAP 44 microchip package is present, and centers itself around a 1.2 GHz dual core Cortex A9 central processor and PowerVR SGX540 chip that handles all graphics processing. The Galaxy Nexus 4G for Sprint delivers 1.0 GB of RAM system memory, and 32 GB of built-in, user accessible data storage are present out-of-the-box. A 5.0 megapixel camcorder has been integrated into the back of the handset, and that rear snapper provides video capture at a high resolution 1,080P HD. That camcorder is equipped with an LED flash providing low light camera operability, and is joined by a front facing chat cam in the camera combo. That front snapper is capable of providing portrait snapshots, while also offering video call support.  We are not permitted to advertise the reduced price of the Sprint Galaxy Nexus at select online retailers, but we can assure you it is worth checking out!  View the recently reduced price tag for the Sprint Galaxy Nexus 4G.
