The Sprint Samsung Replenish has been officially announced, and it’s supposedly the world’s first “green” phone.

Yeah… it’s got that, too. It also comes with:

  • Android 2.2 Froyo
  • 2.8-inch QVGA TFT display
  • Android 2.2 with Sprint ID
  • full QWERTY portrait keyboard
  • 2 MP camera
  • Qualcomm MSM7627-2 CPU clocked at 600 MHz
