Considering the multitude of leaks surrounding the device,, you probably already know basically everything there is to know about the ZTE Flash for Sprint. And now, The Now Network has made this mid-ranger official. The device features some pretty modest specs, along with a very Galaxy Nexus-esque form factor:

  • 4.5" 1280x720 Display
  • 1.5GHz dual-core processor
  • 1GB RAM
  • 12.6MP rear shooter
  • Android 4.0
  • 1,780mAh battery
  • 8GB storage, microSD card slot
  • 4G LTE
  • 5.27 inches (H) x 2.56 inches (W) x 0.38 inches (D)
  • 5.2 oz.

To go along with this new 4G offering, Sprint also announced several new additions to its LTE network:

  • Minneapolis/St. Paul, MN
  • Oakland/Fremont/Hayward, CA
  • Key West, FL
  • Fort Smith, AR
  • Michigan City/La Porte, IN
  • Bloomington, IN
  • Eau Claire, WS
  • Ardmore, OK
  • McAllen/Edinburg/Mission, TX

Unfortunately, there's no official date when these areas can expect to see LTE, only that they will be activated "in the coming months." The Flash, on the other hand, can be yours today for $130, and you can get it either online or in retail stores.

    It's Eau Claire, WI not WS.
    Either way why not Madison or Milwaukee first? Why not the Fox Valley? Lame.

      I wonder if is has to do with where they *own towers as opposed to larger cities where they might have a significant partner providing much of the service. But, anyway, ha-ha!

        Look like 4.5" to me.

    Getting some love in the far north. Wohoo MN

    Bloomington, IN: doesn't have an interstate; has LTE.

  • Matt McKee

    Looks like AOSP. Pretty sweet. 4.0.4 is kinda disappointing, however.

  • Doogs

    Key West, FL. Srsly?

  • Hot_Science_Girl

    Sprint "announced" the (very short) list of new cities. But not when they will actually *HAVE* LTE. Just "in some future months".

    What good it that?

    Why not list 1000 new cities... and they probably will have LTE "some day" too.
