At this year’s Mobile World Congress show, HTC has officially announced the One X quad-core phone and AT&T has been confirmed to launch it as dual-core processor equipped HTC One XL in the coming months. It looks like the HTC One X handset is also heading to Sprint network. Previously, we heard that the handset may be heading to Sprint network, codenamed ‘Jewel’. But, a reliable source has now revealed that Sprint’s version of the HTC One X is expected to be launched as HTC Jet and it could be Sprint’s third LTE capable handset after the Samsung Galaxy Nexus and LG Viper handsets, which have yet to be released.
The carrier will introduce it as the successor to the HTC EVO 4G. It is also being heard that it could be released as “HTC EVO LTE”. Just like the AT&T version of the HTC One X, Sprint’s HTC Jet will pack a Snapdragon ‘Krait’ dual-core processor instead of the Tegra 3 as the quad-core processor doesn’t support LT E radio.
The Rumored HTC Jet Features:
# 4.7-inch Super-LCD 720p display with 1280 X 720p resolution.
# Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich OS with HTC Sense 4.0 UI.
# Corning Gorilla Glass 2.
# 1.5GHz Snapdragon “Krait” based dual-core processor.
# 1GB of RAM.
# 8MP rear-camera with HTC ImageChip technology, an additional front-facing 1.3MP shooter.
# 1080p HD video recording capability.
# 4G LTE capability.
# Beats Audio integration.
# W-Fi a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, micro USB 2.0.
The source is suggesting that Sprint’s HTC Jet is set to release on June 10th, but there is no word on the price tag of the handset.
