Meet Sprint’s new mid-end Android phone: the Samsung Conquer 4G

Never mind that Sprint just added two new phones to its Android line-up, the carrier is not going to stop pumping out Android devices any time soon. According to Pocketnow, what you see below is the Samsung Conquer 4G–Sprint’s next mid-end Android phone. Don’t let the “mid-end” tag fool you though; phones like this were considered high-end some months ago.

The Samsung Conquer 4G brings some new and exciting features to the mid-range section of the market, like:

  • Android 2.3 Gingerbread
  • Single-core 1GHz Processor
  • 320×480 screen resolution
  • Slider QWERTY keyboard
  • 3.1 MP back-facing camera
  • Front-facing camera
  • 4G support

It’s interesting to see how the front-facing camera is making its way to average phones like the Conquer 4G. At this rate, it won’t be long before we see them popping up on low-end, free Android phones. Another feature that makes the Conquer 4G stand out is the Android version. While other companies (I’m looking at you Motorola) are still releasing phones with Froyo, the Conquer 4G will launch with Gingerbread pre-installed.

The Samsung Conquer 4G will supposedly become available around July 24th, with a price tag between $50 and $100. What say you? Is this the droid you’re looking for?

    • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

        I agree with everything said form everyone, BUT the phone is 4G WiMAX & that is a huge plus. This phone is for people who CAN’T afford a HTC Evo 3D, Motorola Photon 4G or the Samsung Galaxy S II (Epic 2). This phone for the price is still kickass. It will be faster than a Verizon dual-core Droid X 2 on 3G. So there IS a market for this phone! Samsung & Sprint are catering to them! Good for Sprint & Samsung! Not all people care to have high-end phone, they just want solid functionality & great internet speeds. This phone provides both to that market. I know I can’t wait for the HTC Evo 3D, but some people can’t wait for a new quality low priced phone. The Samsung Conquer 4G is THAT phone for THOSE people!

          Faster then the dx2 haha gotta love the comments from sprint users. id take the cricket network over wimax!!

          • http://Website SuperAndroidEvo

            Ok go for your Cricket. With that comment I already know you are not too well versed in Sprint WiMAX. I live in a very strong WiMAX & LTE city. Just so you know snowbdr89 Verizon’s LTE is consistently 3 to 5 seconds faster than Sprint’s WiMAX. My good friend has a HTC Thunderbolt & his phone only beats my HTC Evo 4G by 3 to 5 seconds. That’s loading AndroidAndMe.com, PhoneArena.com, IGN.com, MLB.com, NFL.com, G4TV.com & so on. I sleep very well at night with that type of speed coming out of Sprint’s 4G WiMAX. My other close friend just got the dual-core Droid X 2 & both our phones kill it. It took the Droid X 2 40 seconds to load up PhoneArena.com while my 1 year old HTC Evo 4G did it in 17 seconds. So as you can see this new Samsung Conquer 4G WILL be faster that the Droid X 2 on the World Wide Web. You need to get your FACTS straight before you post “interesting” stuff as you just did! I say “interesting” because I am being nice! lol

            This comment totally matches the person who wrote it. It figures coming from this idiot. This device as well as any other current sprint phone is FAR BETTER than anything this FOOL is currently carrying…Sprint rules Android in every way possible but verizon fanboys are just like Apple fanboys they all ways have there head stuck up someone’s…Fill in the blank—-

        Normally I would delete your off-topic comment, but I will let you be an exception :) Go Mavs!

    Obviously this isn’t supposed to be a top-of-the-line phone, but the low display resolution is an immediate deal-breaker.

    Can’t wait for the Evo 3D and it’s qHD resolution!

    Now i know your full of shit, why do all u sprint fanboys always compare your shit with vzw?

    • http://Website SuperAndroidEvo

      Ok so now you are stupid also. snowbdr89 we compare because they are both CDMA technologies, & one is cheaper priced than the other. So your stupid mind gets this the cheaper one is Sprint. Just so I can understand, why can’t people compare anything to Verizon Wireless? Why are you VZW’s lawyer or something? You know I am full of sh*t. Really? Ok whatever floats your boat! I was just comparing a dual-core 3G phone. The ONLY company that has a phone like that is Verizon Wireless, so sorry if your feelings got hurt, but the truth hurts sometimes! lol
