Samsung Nexus Prime Launching Soon on AT&T?

By  |  12 Comments

We know that Google and Samsung are likely going to be launching a device called the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, an exclusive for Verizon, sometime in the days ahead. It’s looking like a fantastic device but that carrier exclusivebusiness has some people disappointed.

Well, keep that head up because it appears that another Nexus device, probably the Nexus Prime, has passed through the FCC and signs point to a possible launch on AT&T at the very least.

Right now, we’re unsure if there are any differences between the Nexus Prime that landed at the FCC and the device that will be heading to Verizon. The filing doesn’t reveal anything like that.

But what it does reveal is that the device that hit the FCC offers GSM bands 850 and 1900, CDMA bands II and IV, and a 1700 AWS band. Translation: it has a good chance of hitting AT&T.

It doesn’t support T-Mobile’s 2100MHz band which could be a death knell for an appearance on the Magenta carrier.

It also doesn’t have CDMA or LTE support so that means that an appearance on AT&T’s LTE network is out of the question. The filing also reveals that it has NFC support, Bluetooth, and Wi-Fi.

Still, hope for a GSM flavored Nexus device is alive and well people and that’s fantastic. But will it hit AT&T or T-Mobile? Or will it just come as an unlocked device?

Only time will tell.

    Sigh…Listen up everybody ATT will be getting a Nexus type phone and with higher specs then the Verizon model. This is not optomism just a fact. I am a Verizon subscriber and will have to deal with the lower grade Galaxy Nexus being released so I am not happy about this but I can have the Service ranked 1st in customer satisfaction or the one ranked dead last since the beginning of time. Why any of you still pay for crap service and customer care is beyond me but hey whatever its your decision to make we all have our reasons I guess. So stop worrying, relax and wait a month or so and see if I am not right. I am right btw and time will prove it so all you haters hate now while you can. Why reveal this? It’s my big Screw you back to Verizon and Google for pulling stupid crap like this and fleecing the customer base.

    Yeah, you’ll be missing out for that two hours on LTE until you hit the data cap.

    unless you are smart like us old school att-ers who have been holding onto their unlimited data plans knowing that eventually we could use them on superior non-iphone phones, such as this.

    non-iphone smartphones get booted to a smartphone plan. the only phones that would stay on the old data plans are a non-smartphone.
