The Samsung Conquer 4G for Sprint is now official, keeping wallets fat in the U.S.
Sprint and Samsung have officially introduced the Samsung Conquer 4G, a mid-range phone with specs that would have been considered top of the line not too long ago. As we recently reported, the Android device is expected to be launched on July 24th with a 1GHz single-core processor under the hood. You know, the kind of chip set that was powering some top of the line models only a few months ago.

Having Android 2.3 under the hood is not your typical mid-range manufacturing move, but then again, neither is having the phone equipped with a 1.3MP front-facing camera and 4G connectivity via WiMAX. Some of the specs, though, are genuinely low to mid-level such as the 3.2MP rear camera and the 3.5 inch screen with HVGA resolution.

With Sprint taking care of the high-end with the recent launch of the HTC EVO 3D, the carrier wanted to go after that forgotten middle of the market-too rich to consider cheap handsets with low end specs, but too poor to chase the latest dual-core packin', Super AMOLED (or LCD, take you pick) high-res display equipped beast. The Samsung Conquer 4G sounds like this is the model for them, although pricing has yet to be revealed.

while I wait for something better Im using the optimus S OC'd to 729, running CM7 and it scores higher than stock galaxy s phones in quadrant, not much lower than a stock droid x. 55 fps in neocore. not bad for a phone I got for 50 bucks in mint shape off CL.
