We've heard quite a bit about the upcoming ZTE Flash on Sprint over the last couple of weeks, but Best Buy just spilled all the details of the upcoming mid-ranger. According to previous leaks - which have now been confirmed by Best Buy - the Flash has a 4.5-inch 1280x720 display, 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 1GB RAM, and Android 4.0. The handset's claim to fame, however, is its 12.6MP rear shooter - a first for a device in this class on Sprint.


This newcomer to Sprint's 4G LTE network was originally rumored to be available beginning today along with the Optimus G, Mach, and Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 LTE, although BB has it listed as "out of stock" at the moment. Given this, combined with past rumors, we fully expect Sprint to officially announce the Flash tomorrow morning.

Update: The phone is now on Wirefly as well, and is listed as "ships when available."

    Good luck selling any of these when the nexus 4 is way cheaper!

      People who want LTE on Sprint will go for this, though I don't see anything attractive about it compared to other similarly-priced phones on Sprint.

        LTE which coveres about two people, and speeds like T-Mobiles 3G...

          I have sprint LTE and it covers great. And speeds are 20+ mbs

            In sweden you can get about 80-90 or around 20 on 3g. Might be because nobody uses lte ;)

    Ok, who is buying this when Galaxy Nexus and Nexus 4 is better than ZTE smartphones? Are we idiots or Apple fanboys?

    The Flash is actually a Required Device that "launched" today we have fact tags and price out on our sales floor

    $129 on contract isn't bad at all. And you can expect the price to go farther down considering its a pretty unknown brand in the states. If your in a area with LTE this would be a pretty good phone imo. Unlimited Data FTW.
