    Looks like the Sprint Galaxy Nexus may be updated for the sprint version with a better processor and maybe a better camera. Which would explain on Cnet's review why Samsung expressly told Cnet that they cannot show the back of the phone on the review

    Refreshed Galaxy Nexus Plus with faster CPU and improved camera on the way? | Android and Me

    What do you guys think could it be possible.? I mean look at the galaxy SII on at&t:
    Galaxy SII
    Galaxy S II skyrocket
    Galaxy S II skyrocket HD

    I think the 4470, is possible maybe even likely. The 4470 is designed to be both hardware and software compatible with the 4460 CPU. While a small number bump, the 4470 really ups the performance. I hope for a camera bump, but I have less confidence in that happening.

    The back of the phone has exactly NOTHING to do with what processor is in it. In fact, they showed us the back of the phone. We just weren't allowed to photograph it. There is absolutely nothing remarkable about the back of the phone they showed.

    I think he was trying to imply that perhaps the camera sensor or optics changed.

    Well if they change the camera sensor, and kept the position and design the same then it would not be noticeable, but quick question did they say as to why you couldn't take pictures of the back of the phone? Also I'm sure that was a pre-production phone.. So I'm hoping for a better camera too.. But I guess time will tell Phil, and thanks for the reply keep up the great work.

    Did you guys catch the wonky screen resolution that every other site seems to have missed? They have it at 1196x720 on the Nenamark score, but on the actual Galaxy Nexus, its 1184x720.

    I say fake. It wouldn't exactly be hard to fake these results.

    There's no way to know yet, but I wouldn't discount the possibility because of screen resolution. That change would happen if Google simply updated ICS so the button strip at the bottom would be thinner.

    Ditto. Would be a swift kick in the '@ss' to Verizon.. Remember the whole Palm Pre/Pixi Plus.

    Now it's time to 1+ them

    my guess is that Google wants to keep the Nexus as consistent as possible among all carriers given that it is a "reference" developer phone. obviously the radios must be different - but i would not expect any variation in other components.
