After popping up in a couple of leaks earlier this year, Sprint today made its ZTE-manufactured Vital officially official. The Sprint Vital is slated to launch on June 14, aka this Friday, carrying a price tag of $99.99 with a two-year commitment and $50 mail-in rebate.
Sprint customers that plop down their hard-earned $100 on the Vital will be getting themselves a device with a 5-inch 1280x720 IPS display, 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 8GB of internal storage, microSD card slot, 4G LTE and Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean. The Vital also sports 13-megapixel rear and 1-megapixel front cameras, and inside there's a 2,500mAh battery that powers the whole package.
As I noted when the Vital leaked earlier this month, this ZTE-made Android smartphone looks like a respectable piece of kit for any Sprint customers that are in the market for a new device. The Vital's 5-inch 720p display make it an option for fans of large-screened phones, and its 13-megapixel shooter and microSD card slot are also nice bullet points on this ZTE handset's spec sheet. We'll have to wait until we get the Vital in for review before making any final judgments on its performance, but at $100 on contract, it could make for an interesting addition to Sprint's lineup.
