Does a new mid-range Android on Sprint get your juices flowing? Me neither. But we're going to tell you about it anyway. So, this is a new Sprint mid-range budget phone, and we have no idea who it's made by. Take a look at these photos, leaked courtesy of an anonymous tipster:
Our guess on the OEM is ZTE, but don't quote us on it. Given Sprint's relationship with the company in the past (especially on its prepaid subsidiaries), a Sprint-branded ZTE handset would make the most sense. So, what's this Nexus lookalike packing?
- 4.5" display
- 1.5GHz dual-core processor
- 1GB RAM
- 8GB storage
- Android 4.0
- 12MP rear camera / 1MP front
- 1730mAh battery
- $179.99 on 2-year agreement, $129.99 after $50 MIR ($449.99 off contract)
All in all, this actually doesn't look like a bad phone, except for the fact that it's probably a ZTE. It may even have software buttons, but with such a low-quality image, it's hard to tell.
Availability is a big question mark for the moment, but we can't imagine this phone is too far off if pricing and rebate structure (seriously, stop the MIRs) have already been figured out.
