Let’s say that US Cellular’s lower-end smartphone offerings aren’t to your liking. Considering the carrier’s recently-shared plans for the start of its LTE network in early 2012, maybe you’re thinking about the possibilities for getting some top-tier hardware to really take advantage of LTE speeds. It turns out you might get exactly that, if today’s rumor plays-out. It’s hard from definitive proof, but a leaked LTE training screenshot from US Cellular has some people thinking the carrier could be landing Samsung’s Galaxy Nexus.
None of the 4G LTE devices in the shot are named. The colored bar around the rear camera may tip tablet fans off to that device being a Galaxy Tab, but what about the smartphone? As pictured here, it’s so small and lacking contrast that it’s difficult to say for sure, but there’s certainly a strong resemblance to the Galaxy Nexus.
Even if we could be sure that’s the Nexus pictured, it could easily just represent a generic LTE phone for the purposes of this slide, rather than one the carrier specifically plans to support. We’d love to see additional evidence supporting the theory of the Galaxy Nexus coming to US Cellular, as it could be a fantastic way to kick-off the new LTE network.
