Samsung's SPH-L500 visits the FCC loaded with Sprint connectivity
The Samsung SPH-L500 has just visited the FCC and right away we know that this is going to be a fairly large phone as the device has a footprint only slightly smaller than the Samsung Galaxy S4. At 5.2 inches high and 2.6 inches wide, the handset is twice as high as it wide. Sprint has received a 180 day confidentiality period which means that certain information that we normally can access from an FCC filing, like the Users Manual, is off-limits.

This mystery device will apparently be offered on Sprint since it is carrying an 850/1900 CDMA radio and supports LTE band 25, WiFi a/b/g/n, Bluetooth and even NFC. Rumored specs have the SPH-L500 offering a 4.65 inch display with Android 4.1.2 running the show, and back and front-facing cameras weighing in at 8MP and 1.9MP respectively. Inside is 1GB of RAM and 8GB of native storage can be expanded with the 64GB capacity micro SD slot. A dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8930 processor is under the hood.

Hopefully, now that the requisite FCC visit has been made, Samsung and Sprint will soon take the wraps off of this model.

Is this the phone that was rumored to be released at WMC with flexible screen?

Most likely a Rugged Push to Talk device.

It seems like Sprint is getting a variant of the Galaxy Premier. Nice...As long as it has a snapdragon 400 or the older S4 chipset....

That's a great form factor for a 4.65"(ideal size) screen. The side bezels are only .16".
