'HTC Evo One' appears hours before Sprint launch
HTC and Sprint are set to announce a new smartphone later today, but as usual, an early leak of the device being called the HTC Evo One is already stealing the spotlight.
It's only a few hours before device it claims to be one and the same., but Droid Life has already gotten its hands on a
The unit that Droid Life photographed here looks like it just came out of woodshop, but if this does prove to be the self-same Android Ice Cream Sandwich handset that becomes official later today, it'll include at least one thing that the One X didn't: a kickstand.
Now I love a good, useful kickstand, and it's part of the Evo brand image, so that's fine by me.
We already know a lot about the phone, from its 4.7-inch high-res screen to its 8-megapixel rear-facing camera, and HTC Sense 4.0 interface. The global model has Nvidia's quad-core Tegra 3 processor, which the AT&T version of the phone has replaced with a Qualcomm dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor, since Nvidia's chip wasn't LTE-ready at the time of manufacture, according to HTC. I suspect that Sprint's device will also utilize the same dual-core processor.
Stick with CNET and we'll share all the official news as it happens, starting at 2:30 p.m. PT/5:30 p.m. ET.
