A few days ago we saw a device called Sprint Vital crop up on the rumor radar; today the smartphone has been made official by the mobile carrier. The smartphone is the same as the pictures and information suggested a few days ago, but it is still great news to see the Sprint Vital getting released so early.
The Sprint Vital is manufactured by ZTE, a company which is rapidly making a name for itself in the Android world. While we had some information regarding the Sprint Vital, we didn’t know that the smartphone will cost $99. That price is only applicable if you but a new line or are eligible for an upgrade, on a two year contract after a $50 mail in rebate. The Sprint Vital will be available starting 14 June, which is not far actually. The smartphone will be on sale from the carrier’s retail channels.
The best part is that the Sprint Vital is eco-friendly, the packaging is 98 percent recyclable and Underwriter Laboratory Environment Platinum Certification is also onboard. The smartphone has a 5 inch display with a HD resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels. There will be a dual core processor clocked at 1.5 GHz and it will be backed by Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean. Sprint also states that the latest smartphone keeps the Android experience closer to the way it was intended. Which means we will be getting a almost stock Android experience.
The Sprint Vital also packs a 13 MP rear facing camera as well as a 1 MP front facing one. There is 4G LTE support and a hefty 2500 mAh battery too. The battery is a removable one which is promised to provide 15 hours of talk time. So what do you think about the new Sprint Vital? Is it worth the upgrade or are you going to stick with big brand names?
