Sprint’s first tri-band smartphones arrive Nov. 8, bringing to life the promise of Sprint Spark.
Sprint Spark leverages one of the most advanced networks on the market, but it’s the tri-band devices that truly bring it to life.
In addition to the two smartphones coming Nov. 8, select smartphones also will be upgraded to Sprint Spark via an over-the-air update in the coming months. Select hotspots are Sprint Spark-capable today.
Tri-band devices are engineered from the inside out to deliver a flawless data experience. A Sprint Spark-capable device intelligently determines which available band of LTE is needed for a given activity, and joins that band. This all happens in an instant, but the result is a faster, more reliable network while in Sprint Spark coverage.
Tri-band smartphones set to launch this year include:
