Although ZTE is not among the top players on the smartphone market, the Chinese company is no stranger to making decent handsets. Take the ZTE Grand X LTE
, for example – an Android 4.0 smartphone it unveiled just a few weeks ago with a Snapdragon S4 inside and support for LTE connectivity. And now, it looks like something even more potent is headed stateside.
Rumor has it that Sprint will be getting the ZTE Flash
later this year. If the leaked information is correct, the smartphone comes with a 4.5-inch IPS display with a resolution of 1280 by 720 pixels, protected by a tough layer of Gorilla Glass. The processor inside it is a Snapdragon S4 with two cores ticking at 1.5GHz.
On its back resides a 12.6-megapixel camera with flash, and on the front we have a 1MP camera with a back-side illuminated sensor. Other features include NFC, Bluetooth 4.0, microSD card for storage expansion, and LTE connectivity. To no surprise, the smartphone comes with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
Now, don't expect the ZTE Flash to be released anytime soon. First of all, we have to wait for Sprint to officially announce the smartphone along with all the details around it. If the leaked information is to be trusted, however, the ZTE Flash might be launched on October 14, which is about 10 weeks in the future. Pricing remains unknown, but knowing ZTE leads us to believe that the ZTE Flash could be a relatively affordable offering.
