HTC and Sprint to announce HTC One X on April 4?

    Mark down April 4 on your calendars as the day that the HTC One X officially touches down on Sprint’s network. That is the date when HTC and Sprint are expected to hold a joint event in New York. Trying to emulate the success of HTC Evo 4G, which was the carrier’s fastest-selling smartphone in 2010, the big guns from HTC and Sprint are expected to take the stage to introduce HTC One X.

    The soon to be introduced phone has been speculated to carry the HTC Jet branding, but this could merely be a codename that is subject to change. It’s unknown yet which name Sprint will pick for the HTC One X, but it’s likely that the carrier will want to use the already popular EVO branding for the phone.

    Regardless of the name, the Sprint HTC One X will not come with the same specs that the international cousin will carry. Unlike the international model, which is powered by a Nvidia Tegra 3 quad-core processor, the Sprint version of HTC One X will sport a dual-core 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 processor, 4.7-inch HD screen with 1280 x 720 resolution, 8MP rear camera with f/2.0 lens, and 1.3MP front camera.

    Sprint is planning to expand its 4G LTE network to 10 cities by mid-2012, so we may see the HTC One X becoming the launch device for the carrier this June. In fact, all signs are pointing to a June 10 launch date for the HTC One X. As for the AT&T flavor of the phone, we’re still waiting to hear for a release date.

    HTC One Series on the Road

    If you are still on the fence about the HTC One series, HTC hears you and is planning to take the phones on a showcase trip around the world, so you can get the full One experience. Taken from the company’s blog, if you live in Bangkok, Jakarta, London, Miami, New Delhi, New York, Rome, Sao Paolo, Seattle, or Taipei, you will get to see, feel, use, and touch the phones yourself. No dates have been set yet for the world tour, but the number of cities is expected to grow to meet demands.

    Everyone loves a good comeback story, and we have a good feeling about what lies ahead for HTC this year. Are you looking forward to the HTC One Series as much as we do?

      Please note that you have the camera specs backwards.

        Thanks for the heads up, we corrected that!

      Cross your fingers they increased battery to a 2k min and made it replaceable. Thin is fine but average thickness and big battery is MUCH better. I also don’t see how you can make a premium Android phone without a replaceable battery, what are we iPhone users? I will likely destroy my battery within about a year so if I cannot replace it while still under contract then this phone is an epic fail.

      Hopefully Sprint will not uglify this device by putting circles around the capacitative buttons, like they do on their other high end HTC devices.

      I might be sold on the htc one x since only god knows when the samsung galaxy s3 will be arriving. My upgrade is April 1st and samsung has till then to make an announcement. Do you know if the sprint version will have beats audio? That could be a deciding factor forme since i like to listen to music all day.

      • Colton Walker

        It will have beats audio but i wouldnt make that a deciding factor. All beats audio is, is a EQ setting. The same thing can be accomplished by using the EQ in ICS or downloading power amp. I would highly recommend power amp for only $5 it is a steal

      if the phone is lte and there is not yet lte in my area, does that mean we won’t get the one x?

    • someinternetdude

      Wishful thinking hoping, but a Micro SD slot would be awesome.

      I watched the launch event in barcelona and was sold on the camera. One X has dedicated camera processor, hold to burst shoot, 0.7 seconds to take the first picture, take picture while recording. Will Galaxy S3 have this?

    • Eddie Cintron

      Is this announcement fact? Because I have checked with Sprint Reps. on the phone and in the store and they don’t know anything about this joint venture with HTC One X and Sprint.

      Regarding the comment “Sprint is planning to expand its 4G LTE network to 10 cities by mid-2012″, we heard the same sad story when they introduced the Evo 4G. Most of the country never got the 4G. That’s the problem with Sprint, slow data speeds. iPhone customers are furious (because they were enticed to switch carriers because of the unlimited data) and the new customers slowed what never was a “speedy” data system. Let me walk that back a sec, if you lived in a 4G city and were looking a certain way you were in great shape. The majority of America on Sprint certainly is not getting the speeds one gets at Verizon. It’s all about the money. We choose to be on Sprint because our bills are lower.

      I have never gotten tired of my EVO 4G and don’t have 4G. I can’t WAIT for the One X. Rumor is now stating that it will have the kickstand. Sold!
