Sprint Flash rumored to be coming with 4.5-inch display and $129.99 price tagAlex Wagner - Deputy Managing Editor, News Desk
Several months after a rumor claimed that the ZTE Flash and its 4.5-inch display were Sprint-bound, a new image has surfaced to back up that claim. A photo posted by Engadget shows a device referred to as the "Sprint Flash" along with a spec list that includes a 4.5-inch screen, 12-megapixel rear camera, 1-megapixel front shooter and Android 4.0. Under the hood, we're told to expect a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 1GB RAM, 8GB ROM, 4G LTE support and a 1,730mAh battery. The Sprint Flash is reportedly set to launch on November 11 for $129.99 on contract.
The Flash isn't the only device whose availability details may have been revealed by today's leaks. According to another shot, the LG Mach will cost $99.99 after rebate once it launches, and a new Titanium version of the Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch will be coming in at some point with the same price.
While we'll have to wait until we can test the Sprint Flash before making a judgment on it, the handset looks like it could be a worthwhile option for Sprint customers looking for an affordable smartphone with a respectable spec sheet, especially if the Flash's previously rumored 1280x720 screen resolution holds true. The good news is that if it is indeed coming on November 11, it shouldn't be long before Sprint makes this thing officially official. We'll give you a shout when we hear more.
