The release of a real EVO 4G successor for Sprint was inevitable considering it’s success in 2010 and with HTC announcing the One series of devices, now is the perfect time to do so.
Yesterday, PocketNow obtained a press shot containing the high-end One X device by HTC for each US carrier (excluding Verizon). We already knew about the T-Mobile and AT&T variants, but we were still unsure about a Sprint model, although S4GRU.com did get a tip about it. The press image above seems to imply that the device (the one in the middle) will retain a form factor and shape similar to it’s predecessor, the EVO 3D. The stock screen shows Sprint Visual Voicemail, as well as a visible hardware camera button at the bottom right of the device, something that was on the EVO 3D. You probably think that’s it right?
Earlier today, Android Life managed to get hands on time with the new device and posted what they could about it. The person who got to use it from the site says it features the 4.7 inch display, 8 megapixel camera on the back, 1.3 megapixel camera on the front, and Sense 4.0 with Android 4.0.3. They say it’s all buttery smooth and the camera is reportedly “blow away”. Other than that, it’s rumored to include Qualcomm’s new S4 Snapdragon dual-core processor, Beats audio, a red kickstand, and a camera button.
Sprint will be holding their event with HTC today to announce what’s most likely going to be this device, the HTC EVO One. I’ll keep things up to date when they unveil everything.
