Sprint may soon be announcing an entry-level Android smartphone called the Sprint Force LTE. The phone is said to be manufactured by ZTE and is expected to run Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and feature a 4-inch display, a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 4GB of internal flash memory, a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera and a 1-megapixel front-facing camera. As the name would suggest, the Sprint Force LTE would also support Sprint’s LTE network.
This isn’t the first time Sprint and ZTE have partnered up for a device as just a few months ago, the Sprint ZTE Flash was announced to offer a mid-level Android smartphone to Sprint customers. Many of the specs of the two devices are similar, although the Sprint ZTE Flash has a better rear-facing camera as well as more internal flash memory.
Even though the Sprint Force LTE is being considered an entry-level Android phone, we’ve seen entry-level devices with specs worse than what’s being offered with this device. Hopefully we’ll hear more about the Sprint Force LTE before it’s reported release on March 1.
