The Samsung SPH-M910 (marketed as the Samsung Intercept) is an Android smartphone manufactured by Samsung.[5] It was released on July 11, 2010, for Sprint in the United States, and was also released on Sprint Nextel-owned prepaid cell phone company Virgin Mobile on October 4, 2010.[6]

It was marketed as an updated version of the very similar Samsung Moment, though in several respects its features are inferior: its screen resolution of 240×400 is less than the 320×480 resolution of the Moment, it does not have a camera flash, and the Sprint version (but not the Virgin Mobile version) of the Intercept supports only EVDO Rev. 0[7] rather than the faster Rev. A standard supported by the Moment. Unlike the Moment, its touch screen does support multi-touch.[7][8][9]

Android enthusiasts have created unofficial ports of Android 2.3 Gingerbread and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich to run on the SPH-M910.[3][4]

A Micro-USB port is provided for charging the battery and data connectivity.[1]
