ZTE may not be a well-known brand in the US yet, but the company is definitely beginning to gain traction as it introduces more and more devices. While we've seen some low-cost ZTE phones in the past with entry-level specs, the latest leak shows a high-end phone designed for Sprint.
The purported ZTE Flash could be coming to Sprint as early as October 14, 2012. This smartphone is said to feature a dual-core 1.5GHz processor, a 4.5-inch HD (1,280x720 pixels) IPS display, 1GB of RAM, and a 12.6-megapixel camera with autofocus and LED flash. Other key features include LTE support for connectivity to Sprint's newest 4G network as well as Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. The handset is also said to include a 1-megapixel front-facing camera, Bluetooth 4.0, microSD card slot, and NFC.
At this point, no formal announcement has been made by either company regarding this phone but you can bet we'll definitely be watching for the official announcement!
