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.
