HTC EVO successor to “Jet” onto the scene June 10th
Hmmmm could it be that Sprint will be getting the HTC One X too on June 10th? Our friends over at s4gru.com have the scoop below!
But wait, there’s more! Obtained from the same internal Sprint sources that allowed S4GRU to break the news earlier this weekend of the April 15th launches for the Samsung Galaxy Nexus and LG Viper, is intriguing info about a third LTE handset, the HTC codenamed Jet, set to land at a Sprint Store near you on June 10th. This happens to be nearly two years to the date that the HTC EVO launched as Sprint’s first 4G WiMAX capable handset.
S4GRU has connected the dots and projects the HTC Jet to be the Sprint version of the LTE capable HTC One high end handset introduced at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona last month and a version of which is also soon headed to AT&T. The One X is the only announced HTC handset to utilize the recently debuted and benchmarked Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 MSM8960 chipset and to include Near Field Communication (NFC) capability. The Jet matches both of those specs, suggesting that the Jet will be a CDMA1X/EV-DO/LTE entry in the One X lineup.
Below are some of the One X and/or MSM8960 specs likely or known to carry over to the Jet:
- 1.5 GHz dual core “Krait” (28 nm) CPU
- 1 GB RAM
- CDMA1X, EV-DO Rev 0/A/B, LTE (UE category 3)
- LTE band class 25 (PCS A-G blocks)
- Wi-Fi 802.11a/b/g/n
- Bluetooth 4.0
- 4.7′ S-LCD 1280×720 screen
- Corning Gorilla Glass 2
- Solid polycarbonate body
