Update: We've blurred out some information from the invite at Sprint's request. Excuse the artistic license taken. By the way, the announcement will take place in New York City and starts at 5:30PM EST sharp. Oh, and the blurred out part at the bottom said "click here." In case you were wondering.

A handful of media outlets have begun receiving invitations to an event showcasing HTC and Sprint's "latest collaboration," and if it's anything other than an EVO-branded version of HTC's new flagship device, the One X, we'll be thoroughly surprised.

What do we know about the Sprint version of the One X? It's codenamed Jet, and it will be running on a Qualcomm dual-core chip (S4 "Krait"), as opposed to the Tegra 3 chip found in the GSM version of the device. Oh, and it will have LTE - though questions remain whether Sprint will have any sort of usable LTE network rolled out by the time this device goes on sale (June is rumored). We can also guess with reasonable certainty that Sprint's version won't be branded as the One X, but rather as the next EVO device. Whether it will be EVO LTE, EVO X, or EVO Super-Deluxe-Unicorn-Blood-Edition, we aren't sure - your guess is as good as ours (personally, I'm liking the last one).

As far as other differences go, expect some Sprint branding and possibly a slightly different chassis design and/or color scheme. Maybe they'll do something with that awkwardly shaped camera bulge. We'll see a couple of weeks from now, on April 4th.

    Please make it slightly thicker and give us a bigger battery!

    Sprint asked us to actually blur out the Click Here link from the picture... no, not the url to the registration site - just the words "Click Here."

    I'm still trying to figure out over here whether they know how the Internet works. Once I stop laughing that is.

      Hmm...well, them not knowing how the internet works gives some explanation to their dialup 3G speeds...I guess...

      What even funnier is, as far as I can tell, Sprint hasn't gone to other Android sites (Phandroid or Android Central) with this little "request" because they still have the unedited screenshots still up. You're so special Android Police! :P

    Thanks for sharing that Artem, that is hilarious!

    I'm in heavy contemplation. evo 4g contract is over in 2 weeks. Do I wait for the GSIII announcement?

    • Stiggy

      I think I'm going to. I don't see why they put a bigger screen AND buttons on the phone. Someone did tell them they don't really need them right? I'm just tired of having a massive slab of a phone coming from the original Evo 4G then to the Evo 3D. I think I'm ready to try out a Samsung. Only problem is waiting only to find out Sprint won't have the S3.

        I feel pretty confident that Sprint will get the SIII, since they were the first US carrier to get a Galaxy SII variant. That being said, I'll probably be getting the One X unless the SIII is announced pretty soon - my Evo 4G is getting down to its last leg.

    Hopefully Virgin Mobile USA will get the One V.
