With all the talk about high-end devices coming from companies like Motorola, Samsung or HTC, it’s nice to be able to hear news about other brands planning to release interesting powerful devices in the near future.
Such is the case with ZTE which apparently plans on launching a new device via Sprint later this year. This rumor came in after the company announced the Grand X for Europe and after they’ve re-launched the N880E with Jelly Bean out of the box in China, so they’ve been quite busy lately to say the least.
Sprint’s ZTE Flash
Now, back to the future-to-be launched device at Sprint, rumors are coming in about the ZTE Flash, a device that will allegedly make its way towards Sprint stores in October.
Spec-wise the Flash seems to aim big and amongst the most notable features are to be found the 4.5 inch IPS 720p display (1280 x 720) protected by Gorilla Glass, a dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 1.5 GHz processor, 1 GB of RAM, 8 GB of internal storage with microSDXC slot, a 12.6 MP camera on the back coupled with a 1 MP camera on the front, 1780 mAh battery, LTE connectivity, Bluetooth 4.0 and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich out of the box.
There are some specs in the list that seem quite promising, like the rear facing camera for example and the screen resolution, but truth of the matter is, although this handset would be pretty cool if it would have been launched this summer we’re not really sure how much of an impact it will make if it’ll hit the shelves in October. One thing could greatly increase its chances of competing with the big boys however, and that’s Jelly Bean. If the company would rethink their plans and launch the Flash running Android 4.1 out of the box instead of ICS, I reckon this would greatly increase sales numbers.
We hope to hear some good news regarding Sprint’s ZTE Flash soon enough, until then stay tuned and drop us a line.
Thanks Talk Android for the heads-up regarding the Sprint ZTE Flash.
