Rumor: Conquer 4G and Photon 4G due at Sprint

A leaked Sam's Club document says that Sprint customers will have another pair of Android handsets to choose from starting this month with the Samsung Conquer 4G and Moto Photon 4G.


Sprint's Android roster is set to grow by at least two handsets with the Conquer 4G and Photon 4G expected to arrive within the next few weeks. According to a leaked Sam's Club document passed to AndroidCentral, the midrange Samsung handset has a specific release date of July 24, whereas the Motorola superphone is associated with a vague "July" release.

The Samsung Conquer 4G was briefly listed on Samsung's Web site before disappearing within a few hours. Specifications were shown to include a 1GHz processor, 3.5-inch display, a 3.2-megapixel camera, and a front-facing 1.3-megapixel camera.

Initially announced in early June, the Motorola Photon 4G is a considerably more powerful device. With a dual-core Tegra 2 processor, 8-megapixel camera, and 4.3-inch qHD screen, the phone closely resembles AT&T's Atrix 4G. Other details include laptop dock connectivity, Android 2.3, and a built-in kickstand.
