HTC One X to debut in the US on sprint?
Sprint hasn’t had a groundbreaking phone in quite some time, since the original HTC Evo 4G infact, and although that may not necessarily change with the HTC One X (currently dubbed HTC Jet), it will definitely be good for those on the carrier looking for a fantastic new phone.
Sprint has an announcement on Wednesday, April 4th as the image above suggests, for a new collaboration between Sprint and HTC. What this more than likely means is the One X coming in the form of Sprint’s first LTE device. The One X has been very positively received in hands-on reports everywhere, and HTC’s new Sense 4.0 skin running on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich is a brand new vision of the fairly well-received Android skin.
If you’ve been following the drama with the Tegra 3 and LTE, you’ll know that the HTC One X was originally announced as HTC’s first Tegra 3 phone, only later to be announced that US variants will feature the Qualcomm Krait dual-core processor instead. This is because Nvidia has no LTE modem of its own, and doesn’t have a deal with Qualcomm to include their LTE modems within the Tegra 3 chipset. This has forced manufacturers to choose LTE over the quad-core Tegra 3 in the US since the LTE infrastructure is the new hotness in 2012 over a super mega phone. No matter though because the specs for the One X are certainly no slouch, as can be seen here:
- Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich
- Sense 4.0
- Dual-Core 1.5GHz Qualcomm S4 ‘Krait’ processor
- 4.7″ 720p SLCD (1280×720 resolution)
- 1GB RAM
- NFC chip
- Gorilla Glass 2
- polycarbonate unibody
