ZTE hasn’t really had a share in the high-end market in the US but thanks to a new leak from Engadget, we now know that they’re planning to try and break into that market. Dubbed the Sprint Vital, the device features a 5″ 720p display, 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 1GB RAM, 8GB storage, microSD card slot, NFC, a 13-megapixel camera, and finally, a 2,500mAh battery. As you can see, the leak is quite extensive and covers most of the specs of the phone.
Software-wise, the Vital appears to be running mostly stock Android with just a few icon changes. According to the leaked documents, this is Android 4.1 Jelly Bean which sounds reasonable. The phone is also said to have support for Sprint’s 4G LTE network so if you live in a supported area, you should see much-improved speeds over their 3G or WiMax. While the phone probably won’t be a huge seller due to the stiff competition it’s facing, it could be a good phone for people on a budget if it has a low price tag. If you’re interested in seeing more, there’s a video as well as some more leaked shots of the Vital below. Any Sprint owners interested in the Vital?
