Sprint EVO One?

Sprint has an event scheduled on April 4th with Taiwanese manufacturer HTC, and we’re betting on a product launch that will bring the One X (LTE version) to the Now Network. We’ve proposed a few names for this device before including the EVO X, EVO HD, and EVO One X. But, now it seems the rumored name floating around is the HTC “EVO One.” Of course, specifications will be similar to HTC’s original One XL device on AT&T. But, we’re also hearing that the EVO One may come in black and red with a kickstand. Plus, we’ve heard the device will come with an upgraded 2650 mAh battery (850 more mAh than the AT&T variant). Another rumor suggests that the front-facing camera will be upgraded to 2-megapixels, from 1.3.

Here’s a summary of all of the rumored specifications which are changed from the AT&T One XL:

  • Black and red colors
  • 2650 mAh battery
  • 2-megapixel front-facing camera
  • 4.7-inch 720p AMOLED screen (not SLCD2)

If these are modified specs, we could be looking at a somewhat different strategy from HTC, who claimed late last year they would focus one one hero device. With the HTC One X abroad, One XL on AT&T, and EVO One on Sprint… are they really focusing on just one device? I’m not so sure.

This device is rumored for a June 6th release date.

Update: We got word from a Sprint source that this device may in fact have a 4.3-inch display, not a 4.7-inch AMOLED one like rumored. Interesting, no?

    Well.. it’s kind of one device with slight variations. The strategy seems to be working for Samsung at least. I don’t know how many Galaxy S2 variants are in existence but they have been selling off the shelf (I own the Sprint version)..

    If they manage to stick a battery that much bigger in the Sprint model, that’ll tick me off.
