Sprint Express is an Android-powered QWERTY candybar, out on November 18 for $19.99
If your carrier of choice is Sprint and you were thinking of getting an Android-powered smartphone that comes in a candybar form factor but also has a full physical QWERTY keyboard, it’s not like you haven’t had plenty of options this year. The Motorola XPRT, Titanium, and Admiral, as well as the Samsung Replenish come to mind. But what if you’d like your QWERTY candybar to be low-end and Sprint-branded? Well, then here’s something for you.
Sprint is getting ready to release its fifth Android-powered QWERTY candybar this year, and it’s called the Express from Sprint. According to a leaked image of a flyer sent to Android Central, this handset will become available on November 18. As expected, it will be quite affordable at $19.99 (after a $50 mail-in rebate) with a new two-year contract.
It’s unclear at this point which OEM actually makes this phone, but we’ll let you know when we find out. The Express from Sprint has a 2.6-inch touchscreen, a 600 MHz processor, 3.2 MP camera, and a 1,500 mAh battery. It runs Android 2.3 Gingerbread and supports Sprint ID.
Since the Express is due to be in stores in little over a week, we’re expecting the Now Network to officially announce it pretty soon.
