Just a few days back, a ROM of the HTC Kingdom was leaked all over the internet and many people believed it was only a code name for the Evo 3D. Most recently however, a tipster sent photos of the HTC Kingdom to PocketNow. While it resembles the Evo 3D, a closer inspection reveals some interesting differences. Upon closer inspection, you will see some slight variances that indicate it is in fact something different from the Evo 3D. The button layout on the bottom part of the smartphone tells us it is obviously not the Evo 3D. Close, but no cigar folks.
The recent ROM leaked is supposed to be on Qualcomm’s MSM7630 chipset, which provides CDMA world phone support, paired with the Adreno 205 GPU. It highlights 768MB of RAM and a 4-inch qHD display with a 1.3-megapixel front facing camera, while the rear camera will be 5 megapixels. You will be fascinated once you know that its ROM shows that the Scorpion single-core CPU is scorching at 1.2GHz, which is 200MHz greater than any of the other HTC alternatives previously, 800MHz and 1GHz, and matches its dual-core Scorpion cousins clock speed. Also, the HTC Kingdom will be running Gingerbread 2.3.3.
Still, the HTC Kingdom’s debut and how much it will cost remain a mystery – for now.
Will this be the less expensive alternative for the Evo 3D? Or even for the Evo 2? Any thoughts?
