sprint_HTC_evo_4g-540x470

A small OTA update started rolling out the HTC EVO 4G on Sprint this morning that brings but one enhancement to the device: the Sprint Connections Optimizer. Never heard of it? It's actually pretty neat.

It's basically a location-aware service that can enable/disable Wi-Fi and WiMax based on user defined variables (much like Tasker or Locale). For example, it can automatically turn on Wi-Fi when it knows you're at home or the office.

That's a lofty claim, isn't it? Isn't there a new "next generation" every year? Well, to answer that last question, not always. But technology is evolving at such a rapid pace in the mobile world that we can scarcely buy a phone today without something better coming out a month later. And today, just days from Samsung's announcement of the next Galaxy phone, everyone is watching with bated breath to see what comes next.

In recent memory, there are only 2 phones I've been as excited to lay my hands on as the One X, and those are the Galaxy Nexus and Galaxy S II. There's a good reason for my excitement: this is the first phone to pack Nvidia's excellent Tegra 3 CPU. And that's just the tip of the iceberg, really; other touted features - such as the amazing unibody design, ultra high-quality camera, and beautiful screen - help build upon that excitement.

With the upcoming release of AT&T's HTC One X, many people are wondering how it compares to the international version, which packs NVIDIA's quad-core Tegra 3 instead of Qualcomm's dual-core Snapdragon S4. One user out in YouTubeLand happened to get their hands on both variants and decided to boot them up simultaneously, as well as run AnTuTu Benchmark to see how they compare head-to-head.

While I realize that benchmarks are definitely not a definitive answer to how well the device performs, they do give a rough idea of what the device is capable of.

HTC's One X is hands-down the best smartphone released this year. While the version we're seeing here in the States (on AT&T, to be specific) isn't quite the beast the quad-core version found overseas is, the AT&T variant does pack LTE. Other specs:

  • 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 dual-core CPU (Krait architecture)
  • 4.7" 720p display (1280x720)
  • 16GB memory
  • 1GB RAM
  • 8MP rear shooter, 1.3MP front
  • Full 1080p HD video recording at 60fps
  • 802.11b/g/n
  • Bluetooth 4.0
  • Android 4.0.x
  • Sense 4.0

Thankfully, those cutting-edge specs aren't going to break your budget, either: the phone is now available for pre-order on Amazon Wireless for $150 for both the gray and white models - that's $50 less than you'll pay to get it straight from AT&T.

HTC, keeping up with its recent pattern of speedy source release, has dropped official ICS kernel source code for a heaping handful of devices, perhaps most notably the One V, a member of HTC's new One line which hasn't yet debuted in many countries.

Other devices include the US variant of the Vivid and several iterations of the Sensation, with the Desire HD and myTouch 4G Slide's Gingerbread (2.3) kernel source also being dropped.

In a fascinating new video titled "Get to know the HTC EVO 4G LTE," HTC explains the ins and outs of Sprint's One X variant, from the conceptualization of its design, to decisions surrounding build quality, materials, and a pretty interesting explanation of the new EVO's soft-touch unibody form.

Senior Director of Advanced Materials Chris Porter details the EVO's soft-touch feel in the video, explaining that the device has a "warm, velvety, soft-touch feel as opposed to a harder, rougher, cold metal feel." Porter explains that creating the effect involves sand/grit-blasting the device's frame, followed by a light chemical etching process to remove the sharp "peaks." The EVO's design also utilizes around 100 custom-designed machine cutters, used to create exactly the right geometry and feel for each device.

The famous red-and-black accents and the kickstand seem to live on in the HTC EVO One (or so we think it'll be called), according to these photos of Sprint's upcoming One X variant. The device, which looks to be a test unit, was obtained by one of DroidLife's readers, who then forwarded the snaps on for all of us to enjoy. You are enjoying them, aren't you?

Now, don't be too hasty and judgmental, take your time to examine these.

When it comes to rumors, the day before the press conference announcing a device often turns out to be the most reliable. Just such a rumor has landed today, in the form of a purported "press photo" of Sprint's EVO One (at least, that's the rumored name).

Now, I don't want to be a Debbie-downer here, but there are a few things that make this "press photo" look like less than the real McCoy (though I'm not outright calling it a fake - so read on).

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.
