Sprint Samsung Galaxy Nexus Jelly Bean update in Q3 too

Now MobileBloom reports that the Samsung Galaxy Nexus 4G which landed on Sprint last (of all the Galaxy Nexus variants) will be joining in the fun and also getting the Jelly Bean update around the same time. To date we have seen clues for the Verizon Samsung Galaxy Nexus Jelly Bean update but none for the Sprint version. Furthermore, most GSM Galaxy Nexus units in the wild have already received the update.

At the moment the handset runs on Android 4.0.4 and features include Android Beam which allows data to be shared and Google Wallet. The device is similar in design to others on the market, a candy bar slab handset. it does however have one of the largest displays of a 4G handset at 4.65 inches and only trumped by a few (HTC One X, Samsung Galaxy S3 & Note).

The battery provides around 12 hours of talking on just one charge, which happens to be around 50% better than most of the 4G handsets. It comes with a dual core 1.2GHz processor and 1GB or RAM and has 32GB of internal storage. Users are able to take video at 1080p HD with the 5 megapixel camera on the back and there is also a front facing camera.
