Sprint is getting ready to launch a new Android smartphone made by ZTE, it seems. It’s referred to as the ZTE Quantum, but that may not be its retail branding. Sprint could choose a different name altogether, and the carrier may even get rid of ZTE’s brand, as it’s sometimes done in the past. Or it may go for something like Sprint Quantum by ZTE.
Anyway, this is a handset with a big screen, but only upper-midrange specs for this day and age. It has a 5-inch 720p HD touchscreen with 320 ppi pixel density, a 13 MP rear camera, a 0.9 MP front-facing camera, a 1.5 GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor, 1 GB of RAM, 1.5 GB of ROM and an additional 4 GB of internal storage, NFC, Wi-Fi a/b/g/n dual-band, 4G LTE, and it runs Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean.
The Quantum may even be a ‘global phone’ because it comes with a SIM card slot, whereas Sprint is used to operating with embedded SIMs. The ZTE Quantum has the model number N8910, and it recently got its Wi-Fi and DLNA support certified, so it’s definitely real. That said, Sprint has yet to announce it. We’ll be sure to let you know when that happens.
