Looks like Android fans will have a lot to expect this September from our Android manufacturers, like HTC. HTC will be holding some events on September in England, France, Spain, and Germany, and rumor has it that the highlights of the show will be “Eternity” and “Omega” of Windows Phone 7 fame. However, speculations abound that an HTC phone called “Kingdom” will make an appearance, with its specs and the unofficial name recently leaked strategically before the HTC event.
According to the leak, HTC Kingdom has a 4″ qHD display (540 x 960) and will run on Android 2.3.4 with a 1.2 GHz Snapdragon S2 (MSM7x30) processor, and 768MB of RAM. It has a 5 MP rear camera and 1.3 MP front camera. Connectivity-wise, it will be Bluetooth 3.0 enabled and WiFi 802.11 b/g/n capable, with support for 4G HSPA+. It should, however, support 4G WiMAX, if it were to be carried by Sprint. Given these specs, it appears to be a hybrid of EVO 3D (display- and camera-wise) and EVO Shift (processor-wise). It is expected to be faster too than the first generation EVO 4G.
The HTC Kingdom is reported to be called the HTC Acquire for Alltel and the HTC EVO Design 4G for Sprint. It is also rumored to be a mid-range Android phone, considering the old Snapdragon processor, but the rest of the leaked specs indicate an improvement from the previous units released, especially the 4G support. Given the specs, it is expected to be sold at an affordable price. September is already here, so expect more details about the mystery HTC phone to be released.
