The specs of the device will remain the same as that of the original, but the Sprint version is equipped to feature the Google Wallet.

Leaked documents suggest that LG Viper – the carrier’s first LTE smartphone – will be out on April 15th, just ahead of the expected release of the Galaxy Nexus. The device has a good reputation for excellently discharging its function on other networks.

The Google Wallet included is a mobile payment system enabling you to make secure payment in a fast and convenient manner, utilizing near field communication technology.

Samsung Galaxy Nexus features 4 inch WVGA display. The device is powered by a 1.2 GHz dual core processor, and a 5 megapixel camera is flaunted at its rear. The device is set to run on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich platform upgradeable to version 4.0.4 and features most of the modern applications.

The Viper comes on Sprint with the Google Wallet and a Near Field Communication (NFC) chip.

With the release of these two devices, Sprint will further increase the share of 4G LTE networks in the country. Sprint’s communication network is in a state of development, and will launch its LTE network in San Antonio, Houston, Dallas and Atlantaby mid 2012.
