After it’s been the subject of quite a few leaks and rumors lately, Sprint’s ZTE Flash is now official. The 4.5-incher is however still not up for grabs per se, being listed as “coming soon” by Best Buy and Wirefly.
As usual, Wirefly offers the best possible deal for the phone, undercutting both Best Buy’s offer and the rumored prices from the past weeks. If you choose to get the Flash from the retailer therefore, you’ll only be asked to pay $99.99 with a two-year contract on Sprint.
The offer is valid for new carrier agreements, but also for existing customers wanting to upgrade or add an extra line to an account. As for the handheld’s price off contract, this is $479.99, which is 30 bucks more than what Best Buy is asking on similar terms.
If you’re going to go to BB and get the Flash on contract, you’ll be asked to pay $149.99, so take all that into consideration before making your choice. That is once the phone will start shipping, because right now Best Buy has it “sold out”, while Wirefly says it will ship “when available”.
As for the big guy’s spec sheet, BB and Wirefly’s listings don’t come with any shockers, but just as a little reminder here are the highlights:
- 4.5-inch IPS display with 1280 x 720 pixels resolution
- 1.5 GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 CPU
- Android 4.0 ICS
- 1 GB of RAM
- 8 GB of on-board storage
- 4G LTE
- MicroSD support
- 12.6 MP rear-facing camera
Are you getting a ZTE Flash from either Best Buy or Wirefly? Or would you rather wait and see what will Sprint be asking for the phone?
