HTC revealed its latest Sprint smartphone today in a beautiful image. Combined with device specifications gleaned from yesterdays leak of the Kingdom and Rider ROMs, we now have the complete picture of what to expect when HTCs Kingdom hits the market.
The Kingdom runs on Qualcomms MSM7630 chipset, which provides CDMA world phone support, coupled with the Adreno 205 GPU. It features 768MB of RAM and a four-inch qHD display with a 1.3-megapixel front facing camera, while the rear camera supports five-megapixels. Interestingly the ROM shows that the Scorpion single-core CPU inside is running at 1.2GHz, which is 200MHz higher than the previously available options, 800MHz and 1GHz, and matches its dual-core Scorpion clock speed.
Of note, HTC’s Kingdom is definitely not the EVO 3D as reported elsewhere, sporting a different button layout on the front and sides, however the design is similar overall.
720p recording and playback @ 30 FPS is supported, and dual microphones are included for noise cancellation ability. For connectivity, Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n is supported with WiMax and Bluetooth 3.0 also available. Notably, the BCM4329-B1 Bluetooth chipset used supports both FM Receive and FM Transmit, giving the possibility to wirelessly play music on your car radio. The device will ship with Android Gingerbread 2.3.3, with release date and pricing information not yet available.
