Samsung SPH-L500 hits the FCC

Recommended Posts

I'll be looking for a new phone for my mother-in-law soon since she's eligible for an upgrade. I'd like to get her off her Replenish as soon as possible!!! :) I'd also like her to have an all touchscreen phone, but she'll probably want a keyboard, which leaves the Mach or Photon Q. Both are kinda "meh" to me, but as long as they're reliable, good phones it'll be fine for her. She does little more than Facebook and check her email on her phone.

Time to bring this thread back up.

 

The successor to the SPH-L500 has been tested on cloud4sites.com's mtest page.

 

The SPH-L520, located here, has Android 4.2.2 Build JDQ39 on board. Could this be the Galaxy S4 mini on Sprint?

We never even determined what the L500 was did we?

Nope. And we may never know what it is. We will just have to wait and see. Maybe Sprint decided a tri-band version was better*?

 

The Galaxy Nexus was L700, the Galaxy S 3 was L710, and the Galaxy S 4 was L720. This time they skipped from L500 to L520. Strange, but the mystery is exciting.

 

(*Pure speculation at this point.)

I hate to start rumors, but this looks strange and legitimate at the same time.

According to this site, the SPH-L520 could be the S4 Mini for Sprint, and may only have LTE on PCS. We will know for sure when it hits the FCC.

 

Also, the L520 passed the Bluetooth SIG earlier this month. https://www.bluetooth.org/tpg/QLI_viewQDL.cfm?qid=20981

I'd rather Sprint release that dang SPH-L730 already so I can have my triband goodness.

Maybe the L500 is the new Samsung Windows phone that was just announced.

No, because cloud4sites' mtest proved it was android. And I believe the FCC docs had Android listed in them. (Can't remember for sure since its been a while.)

    • Yet another "Carrier" move: T-Mobile users have only now discovered sneaky change made in May
    • Went to Hurricane Harbor again this past weekend, this time testing Verizon and T-Mobile. In my testing, Verizon is now the fastest carrier, at least on the Hurricane Harbor sector. Despite it being pretty overcast on Saturday with temperatures in the mid-80's the park was at full capacity.  Verizon had 160MHz of n77 and T-Mobile now has 160MHz of n41. On LTE I was seeing speeds in the range of 50-100Mbps while T-Mobile's LTE on was completely swamped, barely crossing 3Mbps. While both carriers only have a single high capacity sector (facing Great Adventure, Verizon benefits from having CBRS deployed on all sectors. This is an extra 60-100MHz of capacity that T-Mobile doesn't have. Maybe when T-Mobile gets around to deploying their C-band we'll see a boost in speeds again to be more competitive with Verizon. On the 5G side of things, T-Mobile's speeds were just over half that of Verizon.  That said, neither carrier was slow and I had zero issue using Xbox Cloud Gaming on T-Mobile despite their weaker upload speeds and higher ping.  
    • I think the newer ones have signal bars on them. I took a photo of one in Red Hook a month or two ago that had the same design.
    • Well well, looks like we found one of the two Link5G towers that might actually have 5G. Notice anything different? This one has the same signal bars icon that the pole mounted 5G oDAS units have. It’s in Chinatown at East Broadway and Forsyth St. It’s impossible to tell what carrier it is, though.
