Whatever phone that is. According to some of the comments on Engadget it might be Sprint's second Windows Phone.

 

It's actually the SPH-L500, and not a Windows device. Cloud4sites has a mobile test system that someone tested the phone using it back in December and it had Android 4.1.2 onboard. It's definitely a mid-range device, and I eagerly wait for an announcement from Sprint or Samsung.

oops you're right. Hopefully they can edit the title of this thread.

 

It'll be interesting to see what this phone ends up being. Hopefully we get more details on it soon. According to the dimensions it's roughly slightly smaller than the GS4.

This seems so similar to the GS3, which is already getting discounted. I don't quite see where they price it so that it makes sense among all the other available Samsung phones.

 

One potential way of differentiating it would be for it to be Samsung's Facebook phone.

Yeah, it's rumored to have a 4.65" screen. I'm surprised that evleaks on twitter hasn't pictured it yet.

Ya that doesn';t like a windows phone. i hope sprint stays away from windows phone until they get there shit figured out lol

 

Actually, if Sprint's Samsung Windows phone is really the Ativ S, then the hardware specs are very similar with one having Android, and one have Windows phone.

All they have said is HTC and Samsung at this point.

LAS VEGAS (BUSINESS WIRE), January 07, 2013 - Sprint (NYSE:S) today joined with Microsoft to announce the upcoming availability of Windows Phone 8 smartphones on the Sprint nationwide network. Sprint will bring two initial handsets to customers by summer – one each from Samsung and HTC.

Hey AJ will you be doing an article for this mystery L500 phone?

 

I usually do the FCC OET write ups for the flagship and other high end devices. This is more of a mid range device, so MacinJosh is writing the article. In fact, it is basically ready to be published right now. We will likely post it on The Wall shortly as an unknown mystery handset -- unless we know that we can get solid evidence of a marketing name and photo later this week.

Thanks guys! How does it compare to other Sprint phones regarding its RF capabilities, LTE and otherwise?

 

It performs pretty decent according to the FCC docs, coming in right under the flagships of last year, but real world testing is the only accurate measurement to go by. We will see for sure when the phone is released.

RF from the FCC is very suspect. The EVO LTE had very good numbers in the FCC report, but in real life, it is an RF dog for LTE. The Galaxy Note 2 had very average LTE RF in the FCC report, but it is an RF beast for LTE. Need to get some real world testing...

Yea, real world testing is the only thing to really go by. Altho from what I remember the results from the FCC documents for the Evo LTE weren't very promising based on the commentary here.

No, it did not. This time last year, we even commented on the mediocre RF output, especially for EV-DO 1900 and LTE 1900.

Thanks for the correction AJ, i must be remembering a different device...

I suppose crossing my fingers for it to be a slider is rather fruitless. Probably just another boring, been there done that, slate.

I would think I would have seen something in the FCC docs about it, but I didn't. Plus I'm sure that sxtpdevelopers would have mentioned it, their inside source gave them the specs back in November.

    • August update finally arrived for S22+ unlocked tonight 👍
    • You also snagged a shot of the new oDAS in there, too.    I also spotted one while on LIRR above Atlantic Ave. They’re starting to really get rolled out now.
    • I have added T-Mobile eNB 879366, a Sprint convert site, to the list of gig+ sites, as I was able to break the 800 Mbps ceiling with it. I'm still trying to understand the DAS mess at LGA and locate them, but the bad thing about it is inside the terminals I can occasionally pick up the macros inside. It anchors 5G, which is great for a speed boost, but occasionally data hangs because my device is having a handoff frenzy trying to pick the best macro and/or band for the 5G connection.   I have spotted 2 more Dish sites, one on the corner of Church Avenue and East 16th (photo below), and the other is an in progress site co-located with Verizon eNB 81069.   At Verizon eNB 81069, the ports on the Dish panel weren't connected yet, brand new racks were being used on the roof Verizon is on, and it looks like Sprint's equip is still up on the building next door.
    • Neat!  Thanks.  Most of my issues at the moment are from inexperience.  I've never used AT commands and I'm bad at Python.  I'm not really sure what the best way is to send AT commands to the modem; socat seems to work, and there are Python libraries that should do it, but I don't really know what I'm doing.  - Trip
    • If you need any assistance, firmware or drivers with the radio; I am involved in Quectel's US based sales and field application engineer programs. I am working on the x62 reference RM520/N right now. They are a really fun product to work with.
