Google Nexus S 4G leaked by Sprint's own site
Sprint has inadvertently given away details of the Google Nexus S 4G through a casual search of the carrier's own pages. A blurb turning up in the results both confirms stock Android 2.3 through the "pure Google" experience but also a possible improvement on the original Nexus S through "fully integrated" Google Voice. The phone mention spotted by an Engadget reader would have the pseudo-VoIP service built in from the start to provide a single phone number across devices, voicemail to text conversion, and web calling.
By its name, the Nexus S 4G is expected to at least add WiMAX for its namesake 4G while keeping the front-facing secondary camera and NFC wireless. The phone is still a typical Galaxy S phone underneath and will have Samsung's 1GHz Hummingbird processor, a five-megapixel rear camera and a four-inch Super AMOLED screen.
Sprint is expected to show the Nexus S 4G at its special event for CTIA on Tuesday afternoon. Whether or not it ships immediately isn't clear.
