Virgin Mobile USA, one of Sprint's prepaid arms, is apparently going to add four additional smartphones to its roster in the near future.
They are all shown in the leaked image below. From left to right, meet the LG Pulse, LG Unify, HTC Desire 816, and ZTE Emblem.
The HTC Desire 816 has already been launched in other markets, as it was made official back in February during MWC. Virgin's variant looks the same as the international model, so we assume the specs will be identical too.
In that case, expect it to sport a 5.5-inch 720p touchscreen, a 13 MP rear camera with LED flash, as well as a 5 MP front camera for selfies. It should be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 SoC with a 1.6 GHz quad-core Cortex-A7 CPU, aided by 1.5GB of RAM and 8GB of built-in storage space.
The other three devices that have been leaked are still mysteries, though, as up to this point we haven't heard anything about them. That said, it's probably safe to assume that the LG models are just rebranded handsets that the Korean company is already selling elsewhere. The ZTE phone might be that too, or perhaps a new one, tailor made to Virgin Mobile's specifications.
Interestingly, the pictures show that in the future you might be able to customize your monthly plan from Virgin, with as many minutes, texts, and as much data traffic as you personally need.
If virgin mobile usa doesn't release the new Samsung s6 edge phone I will be switching services. I hate to do it but I'd like to be able to purchase the phone I really want for once.
The LG Pulse looks similar to the L90...
They have great coverage in my city. Speed isn't the fastest sure but it rocks
