When a device leaks, there’s usually some kind of information on the manufacturer to go along with it. Whether that’s obvious branding that can be spied on the leaked document, or something mentioned in the tip itself, there’s usually something that tells us who’s making a particular phone. Not this time, though. No, we’re looking at a QWERTY Android-powered phone right here, but as the title suggests, the manufacturer seems to be anyone’s guess at this point.
The fact that this particular device is heading to Sprint isn’t that big of a surprise, as the network has already launched a plethora of similar-styled phones this year. However, the Express isn’t a high-end phone. With features a like a 600MHz processor, 2.6-inch touchscreen and 3.2MP rear-facing camera, this probably won’t be the next must-have smartphone. But, with Android 2.3 under the hood, Sprint ID and a 1,500mAh battery, it could very well be the next phone for someone who doesn’t want to pay an arm and a leg to get the next must-have phone.
The Sprint Playbook that this came along with suggests that the device will be a Direct Ship-only device, and it will launch on November 18th. The price tag is $19.99 after a $50 mail-in rebate, and you sign that new, two-year contract.
