Sprint rumored to get 5 inch ZTE Quantum
Sprint is rumored to be the recipient of a new ZTE handset code named the Quantum. With a model number N8910, the device is said to have a 5 inch 720p screen. That works out to a pixel density of 320ppi, which last year would have been considered great, but with the advent of FHD displays with 441ppi screens, this would take the Quantum out of high-end territory. Other mid-range specs found are the dual-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 M8960 processor and the 1GB of RAM. 4GB of native storage is on board, but so is the 13MP rear-facing camera giving mixed signals. The latter is normally found on top-shelf devices, and the front-facing shooter weighs in at .9MP. Android 4.1.2 is installed out of the box and the device offers 4G LTE connectivity over Sprint's nascent LTE pipeline.

The phone has recently received its Wi-Fi and DLNA certification. Congratulations! Some other notes, the phone has three capacitive buttons down south and could be an international phone. Sprint has used embedded SIMs for LTE and since it has a SIM slot, it might allow for global use. The viewing angles are said to be terrible, so you might want to keep that in mind, although we do have to remind you that this phone has yet to be announced. We do have some pictures for you to feast your eyes on, so keep reading!

Just because you and I won't doesn't mean there isn't a market for mid range large screen phones.

Just my opinion, but that camera lens looks awful. Like a foreign quarter or something lol.
