Sprint has officially released the Sprint Flash on Tuesday and it seems that all previously leaked details were confirmed. The Flash is priced at $129 with a two-year contract while full retail will run you $449. This phone is meant to serve as a high-end handset for a relatively inexpensive price. For the price you are paying, it will be quite hard to find a phone with similar specs. While the phone sports Sprints branding, the device is actually manufactured by ZTE.

The handset will boast a 4.5” screen with a 1280 x 720 display resolution. On top of that, you get a rear camera that clocks in at a whopping 12.6-megapixels coupled with a 1-megapixel, front facing camera. The Flash will run on Sprint’s 4G LTE network and will be powered by a 1.5GHz dual-core processor along with 1GB of RAM.

The phone also has full NFC capabilities and has been awarded ULE Platinum Certification, the highest possible ranking recognized for sustainable performance. Additional specs include 8GB of internal memory, a microSD slot, and a 1,780mAh battery.

It appears as though the device will be sporting a vanilla version of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, without any custom launchers or skins. The device is also compatible with Sprint’s ID service, which will allow you to easily customize the look and feel your your phone.

So if you are looking for some high-end Android action while remaining on a tight budget, the Sprint Flash should fit quite nicely.
