More and more evidence is emerging that suggests an April release date for the Sprint branded Samsung Galaxy Nexus. Today’s leak comes from BGR, who received a screenshot from an internal Sprint system that states that the “Samsung Nexus” will go on sale on the 22nd.
We still don’t know how the Sprint variant will differ from the Verizon Galaxy Nexus, which we reviewed back in January. We’re hoping we see a few improvements in the Sprint variant, most notably a bigger battery and better camera. We do know that the Nexus will come with support for Sprint’s next-gen LTE network, which is starting to roll out to a handful of markets this quarter. Unfortunately, if you don’t live in an LTE location, you’ll be stuck on the sometimes frustratingly-slow 3G network.
Still, the Galaxy Nexus will easily become the must-have Android smartphone on Sprint whenever it launches, knocking the several-month-old Galaxy S II off its current pedestal. We know many of you Sprint customers are anxiously awaiting the Galaxy Nexus to land on the Now Network. Who out there is planning on picking one up later this month?
UPDATE: And we’ve gotten a tip from a Sprint employee who wishes to remain anonymous that the 22nd date is essentially set in stone in their internal system. Looks like it’s 10 short days for all you would-be Nexus owners.
