In late February, we reported on a rumored HTC device very similar to the ONE X potentially heading to Sprint called the Jewel. New information about this device has now surfaced thanks to the crew over at S4GRU, but it turns out that it may not be codenamed Jewel after all - internally, it's being called the Jet.
The Jet is said to be identical to the One X in every way, except it's packing CDMA1X/EV-DO/LTE radios instead of the GSM/LTE radios of its AT&T counterpart. The Jet is rumored to be Sprint's third LTE device (behind the Galaxy Nexus and LG Viper) and the successor to the groundbreaking EVO 4G. Thus, I wouldn't be surprised if we see this device hit retails shelves under the name "HTC EVO LTE" (though there is nothing that actually suggests that, it just makes sense).
Here's a look at the proposed specs of the Jet:
- 1.5 GHz dual core "Krait" (28 nm) CPU
- 1 GB RAM
- CDMA1X, EV-DO Rev 0/A/B, LTE (UE category 3)
- LTE band class 25 (PCS A-G blocks)
- Wi-Fi 802.11a/b/g/n
- Bluetooth 4.0
- 4.7' S-LCD 1280x720 screen
- Corning Gorilla Glass 2
- Solid polycarbonate body
The Jet is said to have a tentative release date of June 10th; but, while the details of this rumor are coming from a trusted source that's been very reliable in the past, it's worth noting that everything is subject to change (sometimes drastic) until we actually hear official word from Sprint or HTC.
Still, this all seems rather promising.
