Sprint’s first Boost LTE phones unveiled: HTC One SV and ZTE Force

by: Bams SadewoDecember 8, 2012

We heard about Sprint’s plan to bring several LTE devices to its prepaid subsidiaries, Virgin Mobile and Boost Mobile, last month. While the veil on the Virgin-bound Samsung Galaxy Victory has been lifted, details about the LTE-enabled phones that are heading to Boost, the HTC Kingdom 2 and the ZTE Aurora, are still missing.

Thanks to Unwired View, we now have more information about the two. Both LTE phones are now sporting their official names, the HTC One SV and the ZTE Force.

Out of the two, you may be more familiar with the One SV. As we’ve learned before, it packs a 4.3-inch WVGA display, a dual-core 1.2GHz Snapdragon S4 Plus processor, 1GB of RAM, 8GB onboard storage, 5MP main camera, 1.3MP front-facing camera, and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.

Meanwhile, the ZTE Force comes with a 4-inch WVGA display, a dual-core 1.5GHz processor, 5MP front shooter, 1MP rear shooter, and ICS.

Boost Mobile will start offering the HTC One SV and the ZTE Force early next year. As for the Samsung Galaxy Victory, expect Virgin to begin selling the 4-inch phone in Q1 2013 as well. In case you’re wondering, the three new LTE handsets will run on Sprint’s 4G LTE network.

Do you find any of the prepaid phones above appealing? Or will you reserve your judgement until you hear more of the yet-to-be-announced pricing details?

    prepaid is amazing. service is acceptable and price is cheap. with declining payments at boost you recoup the cost of the phone quickly. even with 4g speed throttled after 2.5 GB it’s well worth it.

    With boost LTE i’m sure the sprint phones will be able to be activated on the prepaid network.
