Rumor: HTC Supersonic to launch on Sprint with 4G support 0 by Chuck Zich on January 18, 2010 10:42 am 0 Engadget has gotten an exclusive tip from a “trusted” source revealing the codename and details of what could possibly be the first 4G Android device to hit the market. Codenamed “Supersonic”, the device is made by HTC and will launch on Sprint with WiMAX capability. Here are the official bullet points taken from Engadget: Codename is “Supersonic” — a name we’ve heard at least once before. Feels a lot like you’d expect an Android-powered HD2 to feel thanks to a 4.3-inch non-AMOLED display and a svelte shell. (For reference, the HD2 is 11mm thick, but we don’t have exact dimensions here.) It’s got a kickstand on the back. This wouldn’t be a first for HTC; the Imagio on Verizon has one, for example. Runs Android 2.1 with HTC’s Sense UI. Our tipster saw it in white; production devices could be available in different colors, of course, but white seems like it’d be an intriguing choice for a phone of the HD2′s size and shape. The phone’s software stack is buggy enough right now to suggest that we’re not looking at a release any time soon, but we don’t have details on the projected launch window. It’s fast – Snapdragon fast, it seems, though our tipster can’t confirm the processor under the hood.
