On the back of the Vital is a 13-megapixel camera with LED flash, countered with a 1-megapixel front-facing version. Running on Android 4.1.2, it has 8GB of expandable storage, a 2,500mAh battery claimed to last for up to 15 hours of talk time, NFC, Wi-Fi, and LTE connectivity. As well as the usual apps in Android, it will be pre-loaded with Sprint Zone, Sprint TV and Movies, Sprint Music Plus, and Sprint ID, as well as EA Mobile's Real Racing 3.

The Sprint Vital will be on sale from Friday onwards at a cost of $100 on a two-year contract.
