The Kyocera Rise was unveiled back at CTIA 2012, but today we’ve stumbled upon an alleged photo of the QWERTY slider, complete with Sprint-branded apps. Tipster @evleaks says the device is headed to both Sprint and Virgin Mobile.
Kyocera’s partnership with Sprint is unsurprising, considering the relationship of the two with past devices like the Echo. While details are scarce, we’d expect the budget handset to be free with a new 2-year commitment.
