Now ear this: The Samsung Gogh is apparently coming to Sprint
Back in May, we told you about a device coming from Samsung with the model number of SPH-L300. At almost half an inch, the handset is a bit thicker than the most recent releases. The last information we had on the specs were sketchy, to say the least. Now, a source for Brief Mobile has filled in the blanks giving us a more complete picture of the handset which will allegedly be known as the Samsung Gogh, like the artist. The SPH-L300 had recently had a chat with the FCC, so that is taken care of. And in the course of that visit, it was revealed that the phone was carrying Sprint's frequencies. This was confirmed by the source for Brief Mobile who says that the model is going to land on Sprint.

The Samsung (Van) Gogh is expected to be equipped with a 4 inch Super AMOLED screen with WVGA resolution. What's under the hood? It's a dual-core 1.2GHz Qualcomm S4 processor with 1GB of RAM. 4GB of internal storage is on board while a 5MP camera does its thing on back of the unit. Android 4.0.4 is installed out of the box and Google Wallet is pre-installed. We can't forget the dedicated camera button, LTE connectivity and support for NFC. When it comes to looks, the SPH-L300 is a departure from Samsung's typical  plastic device. The Samsung Gogh appears to have a metal looking bottom with navigational keys that look to be etched onto the metal. The overall effect is a two-tone brushed metal look.

There is no word on pricing or possible launch date, although we think it shouldn't be too long for this mid-range model to be released via Sprint.
