Leading up to Mobile World Congress, HTC had the most buzz. They delivered a smartphone worthy of the hype with their One X flagship announcement. Initially the device will be exclusive to AT&T in the United States, but this is HTC’s premier smartphone. We know they want it on as many carriers as possible. This week we did some digging around, and now we have the first details on other versions headed to the United States. Read on for the full rumor report.
The HTC One X smartphone will launch on Sprint and T-Mobile this summer. Like AT&T’s variant, Sprint’s version will also use the dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor with integrated LTE. T-Mobile will go with the quad-core Tegra 3 processor that supports HSPA+, similar to the global version of the device.
We don’t know the final name of the Sprint version, but it is believed to be a part of the EVO family. Rumored names include the EVO LTE, EVO HD and EVO 3. T-Mobile will call their version the G4x and it will offer stock Android 4.0 like their other G-series devices.
Both devices should be announced at CTIA in May.
