htc_one_feature

Details surfaced late yesterday which indicate that Sprint will debut their version of the HTC One X in the form of an EVO successor.  Pretty much confirming our suspicions all along, the handset announcement for April 4 will be flagship for each player involved.  As to what the features and details will be remains to be seen, however some early specs have arrived online.  If true, we can expect to see a great battery life, plenty of storage, and a beautiful, large display.  Oh, and the kickstand is allegedly set to return.

Keep in mind that all of this is rumored and unofficial, and actually varies a bit from what HTC is doing with other One models.  Nevertheless, the general takeaway here is that we should expect an EVO successor that draws from the HTC One design.

  • Android 4.0 with 4.0 sense
  • 4.7 inch, 720p AMOLED screen
  • 1.5GHz dual-core processor (Snapdragon S4)
  • 2650 mAh non-removal battery
  • 16GB internal memory
  • microSD card slot
  • 8-megapixel camera with 2.0 front-facing camera
  • LTE connectivity
  • Beats by Dre audio
  • Black and red chassis
  • Kickstand

There are conflicting reports for these specifications, notably in the display size and technology.  Some have indicated that we should look for a Super LCD whereas others are expecting AMOLED.
