This tweet passes along some specs of the rumored ZTE Warp Sequent

Those serial leakers @evleaks have tweeted about a new ZTE handset. It's a mid-range model called the ZTE Warp Sequent and is said to be heading to Boost Mobile for a September 17th launch. The price is expected to be $200, which of course, is sans contract. The handset is a less lofty version of the ZTE Grand X IN with a few minor changes like the three capacitive buttons under the screen as opposed to the four on the ZTE Grand X IN. The edges on the phone supposedly headed to Boost are more rounded and while both phones are said to have a 4.3 inch screen, the Warp Sequent looks taller.

What we know about the specs of the ZTE Warp Sequent is that it is expected to feature a 4.3 inch qHD display, and have a single-core 1.4GHz processor under the hood. On back is a 5MP camera. When you have a leak of this nature, with a device that has yet to be unveiled by either the carrier or by the manufacturer, you have to consider the source. Because evleaks recently leaked pictures of the Nokia Lumia 920 and Nokia Lumia 820 before the official press event, we would say that there is a good chance that the ZTE Warp Sequent will be added to the pre-paid carrier's lineup next Monday.

The photo at bottom shows the ZTE Warp Sequent on the left. The phone in the picture at right is the ZTE Grand X IN which does have Intel Inside (hence the IN as a suffix). So far, there is no indication that the ZTE Warp Sequent will be powered by Intel.

I wish PA would dedicate more space to the prepaid / no-contract market, which is going to be the largest smartphone market in the US going forward with better handset at lower prices, respectively. Right now the sweet spot is $250 to $300 for a decent android device Over time, the price will drop to around $200 and then $150.

Btw, the news broke for this phone about a week ago --
