The Samsung Conquer 4G for Sprint is now official, keeping wallets fat in the U.S.
Having Android 2.3 under the hood is not your typical mid-range manufacturing move, but then again, neither is having the phone equipped with a 1.3MP front-facing camera and 4G connectivity via WiMAX. Some of the specs, though, are genuinely low to mid-level such as the 3.2MP rear camera and the 3.5 inch screen with HVGA resolution.
With Sprint taking care of the high-end with the recent launch of the HTC EVO 3D, the carrier wanted to go after that forgotten middle of the market-too rich to consider cheap handsets with low end specs, but too poor to chase the latest dual-core packin', Super AMOLED (or LCD, take you pick) high-res display equipped beast. The Samsung Conquer 4G sounds like this is the model for them, although pricing has yet to be revealed.

while I wait for something better Im using the optimus S OC'd to 729, running CM7 and it scores higher than stock galaxy s phones in quadrant, not much lower than a stock droid x. 55 fps in neocore. not bad for a phone I got for 50 bucks in mint shape off CL.
