Sprint’s CDMA variant of the HTC One X may arrive as soon as June 10, roughly two years after the launch of the HTC EVO 4G. Just like most carrier models, Sprint’s variant of the device is going through an identity crisis by changing its code name from Jewel to Jet.
Since HTC is poised to show off a unified brand, we’re expecting the device to carry the One X name is some fashion, but we doubt Sprint will give up its EVO branding without a fight. We wouldn’t be surprised if Sprint’s HTC One X was named HTC EVO One X (similar to Sprint’s naming of the Samsung Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch).
As we mentioned before, Sprint’s version of the HTC One X should feature nearly identical specs as its AT&T counterpart with a 1.5 GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor, 4.7-inch 720p display, NCF, and HTC’s new ImageSense camera technology which features a dedicated imaging chip for improved camera capabilities.
If the June 10 launch date hold true, we’d expect Sprint to unveil the handset by the time CTIA rolls around in May. Will any of you HTC EVO 4G owners be trading in your old phone for Sprint’s version of the HTC One X?
