Top-shelf ZTE Vital leaks for Sprint; Real Racing 3 is pre-installed
Press images, a video and some specs have been revealed for a phone called the ZTE Vital which apparently is heading to Sprint. The device is expected to offer a 5 inch HD screen of unknown resolution, a dual-core 1.5GHz processor, 1GB of RAM and 8GB of native storage that can be expanded using a microSD slot. A 13MP camera is on back and a rather nice sized 2500mAh battery powers up the device. The phone will have Android 4.1 installed and from the looks of things, it could be a stock version of Android that is on the phone.

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.

It could be an intel atom.

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.

"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.

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