Sprint’s newest upcoming flip phone, the Sanyo Katana LX, has just appeared on the FCC’s website.
The Katana LX looks set to serve entry-level customers, as the filing indicates it is missing a camera. There is no microSD card slot present either, which suggests that the Katana LX will not be positioned as a music phone. The phone should come with support for Sprint’s Vision (1XRTT) network, but will not support their 3G PowerVision (EV-DO) data network. The Katana LX will be replacing the Sanyo Katana II, currently in Sprint’s lineup.
UPDATE: Official photographs of the device have indicated that an external display is in fact present, but is stylishly hidden from view when not illuminated.
