ZTE Quantum smartphone surfaces with 13MP camera and 5-inch display

Our friends over at Android Police surfaced a leak of ZTE‘s Quantum smartphone, which is destined for Sprint. The handset is shown as being the N8910 model, and while it isn’t the highest end handset out there, the specs certainly make this smartphone worth checking out. You can check out some pictures of the phone after the jump.

The Quantum name may not be final, but its specs are fixed in place and fall into the mid range, with a 5-inch 720p display and larger-than-normal 13-megapixel rear camera, as well as a slightly smaller than usual 0.9-megapixel front camera. This information is said to come from an anonymous source who provided benchmark screencaps in addition to the phone images and specs.

Speaking of the display, the source is quoted as saying that the display has bad viewing angles. Inside, users will find a 1.5GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 MSM8960 processor and Adreno 225 graphics. There’s 1GB of RAM, and internal storage space is only 4GB, which is disappointing. Along the bottom edge of the screen are three capacitive buttons that will be familiar to anyone who has used a ZTE handset.

Connectivity includes Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n dual band, NFC, support for 4G LTE, but there’s no mention of Bluetooth. The handset’s screenshots show it running Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean. Its one unique feature is a SIM slot, which isn’t common for Spring handsets, perhaps indicating that the smartphone is global. For now, however, ZTE has said nothing about the phone, so file this one away as a rumor until we find out more.
