Galaxy Nexus with North America-only HSPA+ arrives at FCC

GSM Samsung phone likely destined for AT&T

Samsung has submitted a GSM version of its Galaxy Nexus smartphone to the FCC for approval. Badged as the GT-i9250T, supports 3G radio frequencies of 850MHz and 1,900MHz, but not the 1,700MHz band of the current HSPA+ version. This raises the possibility that the phone is intended for AT&T and that the carrier is interested in keeping its customers with the phone from crossing over to the T-Mobile network.

It's not expected to be the Canadian version shipping next week. The northern country has multiple carriers like Mobilicity and Wind that use the 1,700MHz band and would want the Galaxy Nexus running on their networks.

The Galaxy Nexus is the first smartphone to be released with Android 4.0. It centers on a 4.65-inch, 720p touchscreen and a 1.2GHz dual core processor. The CDMA version from Verizon is expected to hit the US market over the next 10 days. It hit UK shops in November, but its US introduction was delayed in part from problems attributed to a volume bug, which was resolved earlier this week. [via Android Central]
