Sprint’s 4G LTE Galaxy Nexus Could Debut on April 15th

It looks like we have more than just one Sprint LTE leak for you today. According to S4GRU, Sprint is reportedly preparing to launch one of its first 4G LTE-capable handsets, the Galaxy Nexus, on April 15th. The Galaxy Nexus is Google’s first Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich phone and it will support Google Wallet for mobile payments, a feature that’s not available on Verizon Wireless’ version of the phone.

We’re not so sure how strong S4GRU‘s track record is, and April seems awfully soon for Sprint to begin launching 4G LTE, but it has promised to turn on the Long Term Evolution technology in select cities in “mid-2012.” Sprint has already confirmed that it will sell the Galaxy Nexus, and it already cleared the FCC, the carrier  just hasn’t said when the phone will be available. We wouldn’t be surprised to see it land in the $100-$200 range — it offers solid specs including a dual-core processor, a 5-megapixel camera, and a 1280 x 720-pixel HD resolution display. We’ll keep you updated when we hear more.
