Top-shelf ZTE Vital leaks for Sprint; Real Racing 3 is pre-installed
The ZTE Vital will have connectivity with Sprint's 4G LTE pipeline. There is no word on pricing or exactly when we might see this model launched. Considering that you will find this unit in the high-end section of your typical Sprint store, it's takes a lot of chutzpah to go after other top-shelf models like the HTC One and the Samsung Galaxy S4. If there is one thing that this upstart Chinese manufacturer has, it's chutzpah.
Real Racing 3 comes pre-loaded on the phone, which will offer NFC support. If you're looking for a well spec'd model that is a bit off the beaten path, the ZTE Vital fits that definition perfectly. Check out the video below and you might find this model a (ahem) vital part of your everyday mobile lineup.

Except for the 5inch screen "HD" screen I don't see what so 'High-End' about it. Oh wait, Sprint.

I agree with the above comments, but even if it's an Intel Atom powering this device (which I severely doubt), that 1GB of RAM puts this device out of the running for top-shelf/high-end period.

Wtf Sprint!! Still no WP8 models but you'll release garbage ZTE models??

"Later this summer." Sprint's words on WP8. Wouldn't surprise me if they actually waited until the last day of summer to release it.

Its driving me insane really.. my wife has the Lumia 822 on VZW while I sport the Motorola Photon on Sprint. Trust me when I say her phone crushes mine in every category :-/

Unless it's 2012 for some reason, this is no way a top tier phone
