Sprint Force leak shows 4G LTE smartphone that's slated for March 1 debutAlex Wagner - Deputy Managing Editor, News Desk
After Flashing us late last year, it looks like Sprint is now ready to show us its Force. A product page sent to Engadget has revealed a new smartphone known as the Sprint Force, a ZTE-made device that'll come to market with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich in tow. According to the leaked image, the Force will be launching on March 1 with a price of $49.99 with a two-year contract and $50 mail-in rebate. The Force's original price is listed as $299.
The Sprint Force is expected to launch with a 4-inch Gorilla Glass display, 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 1GB RAM, 4GB storage, 4G LTE and a 1,730mAh battery. We're also told to expect a 5-megapixel rear camera as well as a 1-megapixel shooter around front. Those specs line up with some details of the Force that were named in a leak from early December 2012. That report also claimed that the Force will be heading to Boost Mobile, which wouldn't be a total shock since we've seen Sprint phones jump to Boost before, but it would be good news for Boost customers if the Force retained its LTE connectivity during the move. March 1 is just a hair over a week away, so it won't be long before Sprint's Force is officially put on display.
