HTC did its best to wow Android fans and mobile industry insiders alike when it unveiled the HTC One X at Mobile World Congress. The company's first quad-core smartphone, the One X, hasn't even landed stateside, yet it's making waves and spawning plenty of speculation.

AT&T first confirmed plans to bring a version of the One X to the U.S. but sadly it will be a dual-core handset , not HTC's cutting-edge device run by quad-core processors. Now a new rumor has surfaced with tech site s4ru.com claiming the phone will be scooped up by Sprint. Citing unnamed sources at the carrier, the One X will be Sprint's first 4G LTE device and could land in stores as soon as June 10.

If this report is true, a big letdown (again) is this HTC One X's lack of quad-core computing power. Said to be called the "Jet," the handset looks to be a splitting image of the watered-down model expected to hit AT&T right down to its 1.5GHz dual-core CPU. Other components apparently include a 4.7-inch LCD (1,280 by 720 pixels), 1GB of RAM, and Bluetooth 4.0.
