As we’re unboxing and testing the GSM variant of the Samsung-made Google Galaxy Nexus, Mountain View has put up a 360 degree look of the LTE variant of the phone which will land on Verizon — according to recent rumors, as soon as December 8 or 9.
As you can see in the image above, the LTE variant is not only thicker but, due to the added .57mm, it seems to lose a little bit of its curve. Of course, the 9.47mm thickness (versus 8.9mm on the GSM flavor) not only houses the LTE radio but a slightly bigger battery (100mAh bigger) in order to power that juice-hungry radio. Is the difference of aspect negligible or does the LTE Galaxy Nexus lose its appeal?
