Sprint has announced two new Android smartphones that are going to be available via its Boost Mobile prepaid brand: HTC One SV, and the ZTE-made Boost Force – both supporting Sprint’s 4G LTE network.
Already released in the UK and other markets, the HTC One SV isn’t a high-end handset (like the new One is). Nevertheless, it’s a nice smartphone that features a 4.3-inch WVGA Super LCD-2 display, Wi-Fi, GPS, NFC, Bluetooth 4.0, Beats Audio, 1.6MP front-facing camera, 5MP rear camera with 1080p video recording, dual-core 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of internal memory, MicroSD card support, 1,800 mAh battery, and a 9.2mm thin case. Sadly, the handset will run Android Ice Cream Sandwich at launch, but an upgrade to Jelly Bean must not be ruled-out.
Boost Mobile will sell the HTC One SV starting March 7, for $299.99.
The Boost Force runs Android Ice Cream Sandwich, too, and comes with a 4 inch WVGA display, 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 5MP fear camera, and a 1MP front-facing camera. It’s going to be launched the same day as the HTC One SV, but costing less: $199.99.
The ZTE Force will be available on Sprint plans as well, apparently for $49.99 on contract, one week after its debut on Boost.
