Yesterday brought us news of Sprint’s initial foray into LTE service, with plans to offer its first subscribers using the network the choice between LTE-enabled Samsung Galaxy Nexus or LG Viper smartphones. At the time, we noticed many of you seemed concerned over the Sprint Galaxy Nexus’s storage capacity, which Sprint was reporting at just 16GB. Lucky news for those of you with large app or media collections, as Sprint has now confirmed that the figure it earlier posted was inaccurate.
Indeed, the Galaxy Nexus as it finds its way to Sprint will offer the phone’s full 32GB capacity. Seeing as the phone has no microSD slot for storage expansion, making sure the phone has enough for your needs is an important pre-purchase consideration. Some of you were speculating when we were still wondering if the 16GB figure was accurate whether or not the decreased capacity might mean Samsung was finally adding such a microSD slot, after all. That would have been neat to see, if not a little unprecedented, but it’s no longer something that seems in the cards.
