If you’ve been following the news surrounding the new HTC One series, you already know that Sprint has opened pre-orders for its version of the One XL, the Evo 4G LTE. It’s a solidly-specced device with a popular brand name that promises to sell well. If you’ve been following the news very closely, however, you also know that it packs a disadvantage cleverly disguised as a feature: an embedded SIM. Which makes about as much sense as a cast-iron laptop: they both offer the same degree of convenience and portability.

As if HTC’s One XL didn’t already have enough going for it, with a Snapdragon S4 under the hood, big 4.7-inch display, and Sense 4.0, Sprint had to go ahead and announce its own XL with even more tweaks, set to arrive as the EVO 4G LTE. While Sprint has yet to officially reveal just when the EVO 4G LTE will land in the hands of customers, there have been plenty of rumors attempting to nail that date down. First sometime in early June sounded like the most likely outcome, but more recent suggestions have been placing the date a little earlier, perhaps even as soon as May 18. [...]
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 [...]
It’s fitting that the company which once differentiated based on the clarity of their calls is the first one to begin marketing enhanced audio calling in the U.S. Sprint yesterday announced their new flagship HTC smartphone, the Evo 4G LTE, and something else along with it: a next-generation technology they’re calling HD Voice.
The technology they’re using “will provide fuller, more natural-sounding and less fatiguing voice quality and should reduce troublesome background noises often found in a cafe or on the street,” according to Sprint’s [...]
Last night, we gave you a hands-on look at the HTC EVO 4G LTE, some enhanced One XL hardware that’s looking to be the third LTE-supporting smartphone to debut on Sprint’s new network. There’s understandably a lot of excitement for this model, improving on the initial One XL design with a larger battery and microSD support. HTC has since posted a video to its YouTube account that shows-off the EVO 4G LTE while giving us some insight into the company’s design process. As the camera pans by a row of some of HTC’s case designs, we can see one model which seems [...]
This is the HTC EVO ONE (codename:Jewel) that Sprint will reportedly launch on Wednesday, pictured between the HTC One X for AT&T and the T-Mobile-bound HTC One S. As one of the Now Network’s premiere LTE handsets, the EVO ONE promises to usher in a new cellular broadband technology in much the same manner as the HTC EVO 4G heralded the company’s ill-fated WiMax rollout.
Rumored by Android Central to sport a 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor from Qualcomm along with a 4.7-inch, 720p display and 16GB of internal memory, the EVO ONE should make a worthy [...]
Yesterday, we checked out some rumors about upcoming smartphones for Sprint, including a model referred to as the HTC Jet. Supposedly the phone wouldn’t arrive until June, and very little detail about its capabilities was provided. We may be about to get the official story on the phone even sooner than expected, as Sprint has just sent-out invitations to a press event it’s holding with HTC, where the the companies intend to share their “latest collaboration”.
The only Jet specs mentioned by the rumor’s source include NFC capabilities and inclusion [...]
A 4.7-inch screen with 720p resolution, eight-megapixel camera, 1.3 megapixel front facer, and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich with HTC Sense 4.0 on top of it is what seems to be packed inside the HTC EVO ONE, Sprint’s variant of the HTC One series.
We’ve already seen pres shots of the upcoming device — which will hopefully be unveiled later on today — but the folks over at Android Life managed to get their hands-on the device. Aside from the pictures they snapped (above, below and at the source link), they were impressed with the overall buttery smooth [...]
When Sprint finally launches its 4G LTE network, which could be as soon as mid-next-month, we know to expect an LTE-enabled Galaxy Nexus as well as the LG Viper. Beyond those, we’ve been hearing a lot about the possibility to see an HTC-made LTE model hit Sprint. First we talked about the rumored HTC Jewel, and later the name HTC Jet was tied to a leaked roadmap. We’ve had the feeling that one or both of these phones (it’s very possible both codenames have been referring to the same model) could be a Sprint version of something like the HTC One X, and when we saw [...]
We were in New York City this evening to hear about the new HTC EVO 4G LTE. The EVO 4G LTE is very similar to the HTC One X, though it adds HD-voice capability, Sprint LTE, and a slightly redesigned case to provide a kickstand (perhaps in homage to the original HTC EVO 4G). It’s also got a beefier battery at 2000mAh, versus 1800mAh on the GSM version, plus a dual-core Snapdragon S4 CPU instead of the Tegra3 quad-core chip found on the One X.
The HD-voice is an interesting addition, as it marks the start of improved voice quality afforded by fourth-generation networks. [...]
Back in March, Sprint and HTC sent out invitations to a joint event planned for this afternoon. While they offered little hint about what the topic of discussion may be, the timing of the event fueled rumors that we would learn about HTC One-series hardware with support for Sprint’s upcoming LTE network. Some of the details to arrive since then have been off, including guesses at the phone’s name, but Sprint and HTC are now finally clearing the air and making everything official, announcing the HTC EVO 4G LTE.
Earlier today, we got a look at some pics of the phone [...]
We had a few moments to put the recently-announced HTC EVO 4G LTE up against the new Windows Phone-powered Nokia Lumia 900 at the EVO 4G LTE launch event in New York. These phones are very different. The EVO 4G LTE runs with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and utilizes HTC’s Sense 4.0 interface, while the Lumia 900 is running Windows Phone 7.5 Mango with a small handful of software additions made by Nokia.
The Lumia 900 is certainly heavier than the EVO 4G LTE, despite being less tall and wide. The Lumia 900 also has a less precise screen due to its WVGA resolution, but [...]
