The LG Viper are the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, announced at CES 2012, are the first Sprint LTE devices. The LG Viper is an Android 2.3 device, which will be upgradable to Ice Cream Sandwich. Running with no custom UI, the Viper is somewhat of a midrange phone with a dual-core 1.2GHz CPU, a 4.0″ WVGA Nova display, a 5MP camera on the back, VGA camera up front, and an NFC chip with Google Wallet preloaded. The Viper is a bit thick, though the in-hand feel is nice with a brushed metal texture on the back. No word on price and availability.

The Galaxy Nexus is nearly identical to the variant seen on Verizon except that it comes preloaded with Google Wallet. Unlike the LG Viper, it comes with Android Ice Cream Sandwich right out of the box.
