The Samsung SPH-L300 appears to be heading to Sprint with a 1.5GHz dual-core Qualcomm MSM8960 Snapdragon S4 processor. That’s the same chip powering the upcoming HTC EVO 4G LTE and rumored SPH-L710.
As you can see in the photo above, the handset looks a bit like the Nexus One and some other HTC-branded models from years back. The source responsible for leaking the image also revealed that it has a WVGA (480×800) display, 1GB of RAM, 4GB of internal storage, 5 megapixel rear camera, Bluetooth 4.0, and 4G LTE connectivity. The battery resting next to the phone lists “Near Field Communication,” so expect the SPH-L300 to be NFC-enabled upon release. It’s supposedly running Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich, which seems on target due to the three-button design along the bottom. For those interested in dimensions, it’s 6.38cm x 12.19cm x 1.204cm.
As you can tell, this is not a Sprint variant of the Samsung Galaxy S III, but more like an updated Galaxy S II with LTE and an improved processor – will it be called the Epic 4G LTE Touch? The SPH-L300 is expected to arrive in the near future.
