HTC EVO Design 4G, Kingdom, Acquire specs and pictures leak
HTC is holding a series of occasions on September 1st and some blogs are reporting that Windows Phone 7 will be the star of the show with a pair of devices codenamed Eternity and Omega, but we might also see the debut of the Android-powered HTC Kingdom.
A full RUU for the HTC Kindgom was leaked and the develop.prop file confirmed some rumored specs and revealed new specifics. This leaked version of the Kingdom is becoming called the HTC Acquire for Alltel, but Sprint fans ought to also pay interest due to the fact the Kingdom is rumored to turn out to be HTC EVO Style 4G later this year.
The newest specs obtained from the HTC Kingdom create.prop file are:
- Android 2.three.4
- 4″ qHD (540 x 960) show
- 1.two GHz Snapdragon S2 (MSM7x30)
- 768 MB RAM
- 5 MP rear camera, 1.three MP front camera
- Bluetooth 3. & WiFI 802.11 b/g/n
- Help for 4G HSPA+
Gabe Peters of PocketNow posted very similar specs of the HTC Kingdom back in May and mentioned it would help Sprint’s 4G WiMAX, so this seems to be the same gadget in the HSPA+ flavor. The name HTC EVO Layout 4G very first appeared in a leak on Engadget and then it was spotted yet again on Gameloft’s internet site, hinting that a release is coming quickly.
For those of you currently on Sprint, you can place this gadget correct among the EVO 3D and the EVO Shift. It has the qHD show and front-facing camera like the EVO 3D, but it packs the single-core Snapdragon S2 like the EVO Shift. Seeing that HTC boosted the CPU speeds up to 1.2 GHz and improved the RAM to 768 MB, the EVO Layout 4G will be more quickly than the original EVO 4G and could be sold as the non-3D, older brother.
The geeks among us might be turned off by the older Snapdragon S2 processor, but the Kingdom is still a good upgrade to the majority of smartphones out there and it will come with 4G speeds and an inexpensive value tag.
If you have been operating AT&T or T-Mobile, would you add the HTC Kingdom to your smartphone lineup this quarter?
