Could Sprint Get HTC’s EVO 4G LTE As Soon As Next Month?


HTC’s One series of Androids are currently generating some of the most buzz of any smartphones around; based on our experiences with them, we can certainly understand why. The most recent model to be announced is the EVO 4G LTE for Sprint’s new LTE network, featuring some upgraded One XL hardware. Sprint revealed the EVO 4G LTE just a couple weeks ago, and while it announced that pre-orders for the phone would open on May 7, it didn’t have an actual retail launch date to share. A new rumor suggests that there will only be a short delay between the start of pre-orders and retail sales, with the EVO 4G LTE arriving on May 18.

Back when the EVO 4G LTE still looked like it might be launched as the EVO One, we heard a rumor that said the phone wouldn’t see its release until sometime in early June, with both June 6 and June 10 floated as possibilities.

Without knowing more about the source behind this new rumor, and how close he or she may be to the release plans, it’s difficult to weigh its validity. Certainly, there’s nothing about the idea of a May 18 release that sounds particularly unreasonable, but we can say the same about those June dates, as well. For the moment, it’s just one more to consider as we wait for official confirmation.
