Samsung Nexus S 4G hits the FCC

What appears to be the Sprint Samsung Nexus S 4G (see our hands-on) has shown up on the FCC page, bringing things that much closer to a release.  It's a Samsung device, with CDMA and WiMax radios, and going by the device outline we're pretty sure that the SPH-D720 will turn out to be Sprint's version of the latest Googlephone.  This news should make a lot of people on the "Now Network" awful darn happy, and the rest of us a little bit envious of a sweet vanilla Nexus that can get 4G speeds.

  • cant wait!
  • Seriously Jerry? Put this on verizon's 4g lte....BOOOM, you'll have a 5 hour wait to get this phone at the stores...
  • Here's hoping it gets released right away!
  • hows this different than the epic 4g?
  • Thinner, no physical keyboard, no Samsung skin on top, no bloatware from Sprint or Samsung. Plain vanilla Android just as Google wants it.
  • Nexus S also has no microSD card, but has 16GB internal memory (vs 10GB on the Epic). But the best feature is that since the software is not molested by Samsung or Sprint, it will get updates faster than any other phone on the market.
  • I doubt epic users will upgrade but others might
  • .
  • More and more, I have to think it's the carriers that don't want these devices. Always thought it was Google. Vzw will never get one or it.
  • Another Great device for sprint
  • Jealous over Wi-Max? Not exactly.Betting the LG G2x will be the better "Google Phone".
  • Except that it's going to Tmo, which means you'll be dealing with AT&T in a matter of months. I'm so glad I resisted to switch from Sprint when the original NS was launched.
  • I can't wait, so I wonder how much longer it will take to be released?
  • I want this on VOW so bad. I don't even care about the 4G. An albino Nexus .......... mmmmmm........
  • I was in best buy the other day and they had pre order forms so its coming pretty soon ....... i told the guy i was waiting for the EVO3D he said early June :(
