Rumored Sprint Flash promises budget-friendly price, 12-megapixel camera

Before we even get started, here’s the usual disclaimer: Leaks aren’t facts. We can’t verify the legitimacy of these photos. If you, for some reason, one day find yourself deeply disappointed over the fact the Sprint Flash was nothing more than an elaborate hoax, you are so not allowed to shake an angry fist at this article. OK?

Good. As reported by Android Police, it looks like Sprint may soon be delivering a reasonably-priced Android phone from a currently yet-to-be-named maker. There’s speculation that the OEM might be ZTE—an unsurprising possibility given Sprint’s relationship with the company but, really, who cares about that when you consider the phone’s specs.

That’s because the specifications for the Sprint Flash don’t sound too shabby: It costs $180 on a two-year agreement (off-contract, it’s a more wallet-taxing $450) and will offer users a 4.5-inch display, 1.5GHZ dual-core processor, 1GB RAM, 8GB storage, Android 4.0, a 12-megapixel camera on the rear and a 1-megapizel camera on the front, 1730mAH battery and LTE.

In short, it’s good enough. If you’re not in market to grab one of the more popular smartphone models, the Sprint Flash might be a great telecommunication alternative. Assuming it turns out to be real, of course.
