Samsung SPH-L300 leaks with Snapdragon S4, LTE and chubby physique
A Samsung SPH-L300 had emerged in a UAP profile before, but now a picture of the device is also out, revealing a pretty unusual for Samsung design, which we all know is too fond of black plastic. 

Apart from the metal-looking bottom with navigational buttons that appear etched, its chassis is nothing extraordinary - rounded corners and quite the upper bezel on top of the screen.

The source of the photo has spilled the specs as well - WVGA screen of unknown size, Snapdragon S4 processor with LTE radio, 1GB of RAM and 4GB of internal memory, and a 5MP cam on the back. NFC and Bluetooth 4.0 are in it, and the device will of course ship with Android ICS.

Even the Samsung SPH-L300 dimensions were relayed - 12.19cm x 6.38cm x 1.204cm, which pegs the thickness at nearly half an inch - quite chubby for today's smartphone standards, meaning that there might be a slide-out QWERTY keyboard adding bulk, or just that the phone will be one thick LTE device, possibly coming to Sprint, judging by the codename.

If there is no Samsung label on the phone, i'll definitely thought it's htc.

Looking at the curvature on the bottom of the screen and size aspects and model number this looks to be a refreshed design for the conquer 4g. Even though the conquer has good specs for a mid range its not selling like it should due to poor physical aesthetics.... Oh yea complete and utter HTC knockoff. But now a days how many different ways can you wrap a screen?
