We first heard of Sprint's mythical mid-ranger, the Samsung SPH-L300 (which is now said to be codenamed Gogh), back in early May. It has once again emerged from the shadows to cameo in a picture, this time alongside the HTC One X.

This little mid-ranger is said to be packing a modest a 1.2GHz Snapdragon S4 processor, and have 1GB RAM, a 5MP rear shooter, 4" Super AMOLED Plus display at 800x480, Android 4.0.4, and will run on Sprint's LTE network.

The Gogh is also said to have NFC and should ship with Google Wallet pre-installed.

At this point, we have no idea of a possible release date, but we expect The Now Network to add this little guy to its mid-range collection rather soon.

    What a name... Who is it targeted to, Klingons?

      You probably don't have to link memory alpha for a star trek reference at an Android Site. We're all nerds here, it's safe to assume.

      Sounds more like a reference to van Gogh. As in Vincent van Gogh, the famous painter.

      A Snapdragon S4 on this will be nice. Good performance and battery life, I bet.

      Thought it would be obvious to most people that it's referring to van Gogh.

    Why the hell do they insist on releasing phones with the deprecated menu button?

    • ProductFRED

      Because the majority of applications are not ICS-compliant yet, and probably never will be. And this is a better solution than HTC's stupid menu software key. Either use hardware keys or on-screen keys, not both.

      • Flávio Faria

        On the other hand, the menu key hides actions from novice users, since they're not aware that they're supposed to press it. I like the way Galaxy Nexus supports legacy apps. On these phones featuring menu keys, the overflow action (three vertical-stacked dots) won't appear for ICS-compliant apps.

    Samsung moment 2.

      No one would buy it after the first one being so bad.

    That phone better have a ginormous battery for that thickness.
