(Updated) T-Mobile, AT&T Ready Galaxy Nexus/Nexus Prime Passes Through FCC

Update: I feel compelled as I see your comments to remind everyone that passing through the FCC doesn’t guarantee a T-Mobile launch. If anything it would mean a T-Mobile compatible version would be available, it doesn’t guarantee anything. Also, for those asking the 2100 band is often omitted from FCC testing, it’s still there. 

The T-Mobile/AT&T Samsung Nexus Prime/Galaxy Nexus has passed through the FCC earning approval (and our excitement) for a world capable version. With every indication in the past few weeks suggesting the Nexus Prime/Galaxy Nexus will be a Verizon exclusive in the United States, a GSM version with AWS on board gives Magenta users hope. This GSM version, know as the Samsung GT-i9250 supports AT&T world bands as well as T-Mobile’s 1700 AWS band allowing for the possibility of a T-Mobile supported model.

Of course all of this is very confusing as we’ve seen leaked specs conflict with leaked specs and names conflicting with names which has led us to simply dub this the “Samsung Nexus Prime Galaxy Nexus soon to be launch on some carrier device.” It’s possible that a DROID branded model could exclusively land on Verizon and then be following up by the launch of the Galaxy Nexus as a worldwide GSM version. Still, we emphasize that is possible as we honestly can’t pinpoint anything about this phone that leads us to suspect an American carrier.

With the Samsung Unpacked event next week delayed among Samsung’s decision to find a more fitting time to launch the newest Nexus smartphone we’ll continue to keep an eye on the leaks to learn more about a T-Mobile 3G/4G model. While the debut itself is delayed Samsung hasn’t given us any reason to suspect that the actual launch and release date has been delayed so we’re just going to sit back, relax and wait for Samsung to announce a new timeframe to debut Ice Cream Sandwich on their newest Nexus phone.

    It has to have both 1700 & 2100 to be compatible with T-Mobile

    • Guest

      thats what i thought too maybe i am wrong

    • Anonymous

      If it lists aws or 1700, its TMobile supported.

      See my post above!

    • Michael O’Sullivan

      yup because I think every gsm comes with an 2100 band and the FCC only tests uplink (1700)

    • J-Hop2o6

      FCC only tested for Tx, not Rx, which woulda shown the 2100 part for Tmo.. But it says above “AWS/WCDMA/HSPA — 1700″

      So trust me, this phone WILL be both Tmo & AT&T HSPA+ capable.

    I believe FCC doesn’t always put the 2100 support on there filings. Like with samsung’s 10.1 tablet for t-mobile. My ? Is and if anyone can answer it is with t-mobile’s bands is this a 3G or a 4G(14.4, 21 or 42 HSPA+?) phone?

      prob 21

      • Mikex915

        That would be good with me. Need atleast 21 HSPA+. Hopefully we get more info soon. Was going to get Amaze or Galaxy S2 but now Prime all the way.

          The amaze is out of the question with me. Nice phone but the gs2 is better. The prime trumps everything though. Latest os, bigger higher res screen, automatic dev support…. Although i wouldnt be mad if i had to root, overclock and flash ics to my gs2 lol

      Good question depends on the processor if it has exynos then it’ll be 21

    • http://twitter.com/ssimpson205 Stephen Simpson

      T-Mobile only uses 2100 for receiving 3G/4G, but 1700 for transmitting. The above chart from the FCC only shows transmissions (Tx).

      • http://pharaohtechblog.blogspot.com/ Conan Kudo (ニール・ゴンパ)

        The FCC does not require Rx to be listed, though most test reports do list them. As long as the common names (Cellular for 850, PCS for 1900, AWS for 1700/2100) are listed, then it is guaranteed to work on those bands.

    What’s the big surprise?

    Nexus is a Google device, it serves to show off the latest OS version and new features. It serves to give developers a Google certified platform to work on. There will never be Nexus exclusivity, the best VZW can do is have the contracted OEM make a carrier specific version.

    However, Sprint will subsidize it again and T-Mobile will bleed even more customers. Sprint is aiming to squeeze T-Mobile with the Epic 4G Touch, the iphone 4S and the Prime and the plan seems to be working. Even tmonews regulars have left and Sprint sold out it’s iphone stock.

    Why is everyone so excited for this phone? The specs are not all that impressive, T-Mo’s Galaxy S II is clearly better: better processor, better camera, better battery. The only things that are impressive about the Galaxy Nexus are the Super AMOLED HD screen and the 32gb pre-installed memory. The rest is pretty much the same. Galaxy S II will probably be the first to receive ICS anyway, so this phone looks unimpressive to me.

    • Anonymous

      Noone knows the exact specs of the prime…. So many conflicting reports. Saying one processor is better than the other when comparing two phones that havent even been released yet isnt fair. Sure the rumored 1.2 ghz dual core rumored for the prime might not seem like anything special, but well find out once someone goes completely hands on with it. The screen and ics alone are enough for me to go prime over gs2…. Thats just me though….. In your defense, the nexus s was mediocre when it was launched compared to the n1 when it launched.

  • Sanman202

    You guys are so funny. Everyone wants this Nexus phone and you hear complaints about Samsung in how the Vibrant wasn’t updated an how the hardware had issues and you all want this phone. Who makes the phone? Samsung! It’s not going to be much different than the SGS2. 

    • Eggsonbacononchesse

      Simmer down Sally.

      • Sanman202

        Just stating some specs. That’s what it’s all about, right? Most of the info so far is just general information about the Nexus. When it’s announced then we’ll know what’s up. I don’t think it will stray too far from what we are seeing so far. 

    • Ricktrann

      Of Course it is bro, it’s pure google which means we will get the updates first hand, and dong have to with for the new OS to reach samsung for them to put their touch wiz on there, there for us getting updates super fast too!!

    • Thereugo67

      Its going to be a Stock Android phone, so the updates will be first. Samsungs Galaxy line has touchwiz and that’s what slows down the update process. Google isn’t going to let this happen with this phone. Pure Google.

      • badaphooko01

        I actually love my vibrant, I just want a bigger screen. The only reason I would need an update for my vibrant would be to get better battery life on miui.

        • Sanman202

          Yeah, the Vibrant is still good. I used it as my daily driver and it’s stock. Does what I need it to do. I just want better battery life also. The SGS2 battery is larger but there is also a larger screen to keep going. It just may even out in the end. I hope it’s better though. I am also looking forward to a newer version of Android. I’m sure the memory and power will be managed better as we see the Android versions advance. The 1.5ghz processor should make things snappier also. You picking it up this week or waiting for the bug reports?

        • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_BY5HIABJIUQHWZND3FEEJTR64E KG

          Nexus = real stock

      • Sanman202

        True, it should receive the latest updates, however with Ice Cream Sandwich just getting released and the SGS2 coming out just before the release it can’t be too far down the road before the phone is updated. Even if it’s a few months wait it’s not that bad. The specs of the hardware itself between the SGS2 and Nexus Prime are not too far off from each other. Truly, the HD screen you will probably not notice the difference from the SA Plus. The battery in the SGS2 is the largest of all SGS2 variants. It should be plenty. Nexus may be a sliver larger which is not noticeable. The camera and the HD video recording if anything will be exactly the same.  NFC is available in both devices. Also, remember the SGS2 has a 1.5ghs processor. The other variants have 1.2ghz. I also would not worry about the Tmo merger situations as the SGS2 is ready for ATT switch. Also, there are rumors though that Nexus will have a better shutter and overall better camera but then there are rumors only a 5MP. These are minimal things once you get to a certain level of speed and features. To upgrade there should be significant changes in the device to warrant paying $200 plus for a phone. I’m guilty of wanting the latest and greatest and thinking the SGS2 is the way to go.

      I am beginning to believe this and what itrustme wrote above that the GSM version will be exynos based while the VZ version will have the OMAP proc..

      • Kevinmarchibald

        Question is whether the Exynos that is used is compatible with HSPA+ 42, otherwise I doubt T-Mobile would sell it directly, and would want the OMAP4. But I would be stoked if the phone was Exynos and HSPA+ 22 and was sold unlocked through a third party. How would that work though if T-Mobile’s requiring contracts (I have an EMN SIM a.t.m.). Let’s say Best Buy offers a Nexus Prime compatible with T-Mobile’s network. How do I get a HSPA+ 22-enabled SIM from T-Mobile without buying another phone from them with either the Value or Classic plan?

        • J-Hop2o6

          It wont matter since its not Tmo branded, but it supports Tmo’s AWS spectrum, maxing out @ 21 HSPA+.. and it might be the newer Exynos chip (4212), instead of the previous one thats in the GSII (4210).

    There’s always going to be a better phone just around the corner. How do you decide? Just get the one that’s going to best suit your needs for the phones that are available. If I kept waiting for what was coming down the pipe that’s the latest and greatest, I wouldn’t have a phone and probably never get one.

      Most of us are looking for something to distinguish our phones in some way.  Some mistakenly try to do this by specs, but as you mentioned above, this is foolhardy as even the top spec’d phone is sure to be surpassed within a few months. That is why I stay with the Nexus line of phones. Between the pure Google experience and the fast (relatively) upgrade cycle, no other line of phones can compare… a true differentiater.

  • UMTSoverPCSplease

    I love this post. It goes to show that the new Nexus phone is definitely not a verizon exclusive. Now I don’t know which is to pick between the new nexus and sgs2 for t-mobile.

      Why do you want to get locked into a pricier contract for subsidization?

      Just buy the phone outright.

        Not everyone can afford $600+ for an unlocked phone, and you’re not saving a dime going unsubsidized if you already pay for unlimited data on T-Mobile anyway. What’s the alternative, switch to AT&T or Verizon and pay more for the same service?

          You are mistaken.

          Subsidized plans cost $20/mo more,  amounting to $240 extra per year.

          Where are you getting this info? Are you referring to a “Value” plan? Because most are on a Classic plan. I am on a grandfathered plan and pay $85/mo for unlimited minutes, text and data. Tell me how paying $600 for an unlocked device is cheaper than $250 without making a single change to my plan.

          if you want an upgrade on your phone you will have to change your plan…

          Not true. I have a full upgrade coming up and the only thing that will change is my phone. I already have unlimited everything. There’s nothing to change.

          watch… LOL once you get that upgrade you will have to change your plan…. i work for T-Mobile and those old plans will not work for the new phone… TRUST ME I KNOW!… and yes i will charge you for breathing once you walk into my store…. (hate customers like you)

          1. You’re not God.
          2. My unlimited data plan is only a year old.
          3. Unlimited data is unlimited data, regardless of the device. My plan won’t change.
          4. Then it’s a good thing I’m not your customer, because customers hate reps like you.
          5. You should find another job.

          I call bs. Your plan will have to change in order to get the subsidized price.
