Sprint Kyocera Echo Dual-Screen Smartphone Coming Soon for $199 on Contract

February 8, 2011, By Leo Xavier

Sprint has released some high quality pictures and a video of the upcoming Kyocera Echo smartphone. The device, which is expected to launch on the carrier’s network near Spring, will be having a price tag of around $199 when you sign up for a contract.

The new device comes equipped with dual capacitive touchscreens, but unfortunately, that is the only feature that stands out.

The device runs the Android 2.2 Froyo operating system, and hopefully we might see an upgrade to Gingerbread sometime after its launch.

And it is disappointing that the device won’t come with 4G support or a dual-core processor.

The phone features a 1GHz Snapdragon processor and 1GB of RAM, along with a 5-megapixel camera that seems fairly responsive, and it can shoot video at 720p.

With the launch of some high-end devices going to happen in the very near future, the newest device from Sprint might be coming out at the worst possible time. But we are hoping that the carrier may come out with some further features and build-up to help it sell its latest handset.

Check out more pictures of the device here, and the video below.
