[Rumor] Is Sprint Getting Its Own Variant Of The HTC One X (Or Something Eerily Similar) Codenamed ‘Jewel’?

Exciting news! Especially the thought of it being called the "Evo LTE." Sure, it's only a name, you can name it anything you want. But the Evo has been such a staple for Sprint's Android lineup - why change a good thing, right?

I saw this tweet this morning. Interesting. Do you think Mr. Hesse will announce this in Barcelona tomorrow?

 

Also, thank you for following our new article posting guidelines. :tu:

I think Sprint has a significant PR problem at the moment. Essentially if you're eligible for an upgrade right now you're forced to wait with no timetable. Some light has got to be shed on Sprint's offerings for the summer. I understand the conventional wisdom is to wait for CTIA, and I'm sure all those questions will be answered by then. But I think Sprint understands they have to give us something to keep us going till CTIA. It's March now and it's about time to show us the light at the end of the tunnel.

As with everyone else, I think it will be a variant of the "One X", and EVO LTE just sound right. Remember that HTC and Samsung have both said they will be limiting the models of its devices this year, so I wouldn't expect much difference if any between the One X and EVO LTE, or the worldwid version of the GSlll.

 

My only hope is that Qualcomm can get LTE baked in the chip before the EVO LTE is launched AT&T is getting the dual core version to launch since the quad-core isn't ready yet.

LTE is baked in by default on the S4 chips. no worries there. Only thing would be if it gets approved for 2.5GHz and 800MHz too..

It would be nice if they enable 800MHz and 2.5GHz off the top. Here's hoping for an awesome keynote tomorrow. :fingers:

To keep this in the actual Sprint thread...

 

 

http://pocketnow.com/android/htc-evo-one-first-press-shot

 

Though it looks interesting b/c no Sprint logo, the body is different than the OneX so its possible to be an early rendering...

 

One thing I hate about it is the 4G signal change to be more like 3G instead of how it is now showing a separate signal bar all together....

 

Though kinda makes sense b/c its in the same freq as 3G so signal wise should be roughly the same...Though this leads me to believe they are NOT including any other bands of LTE in this device...b/c signal on the 800MHz and 2.5GHz LTE would be vastly different than the regular 1900MHz...

The fact that the One S next to it is so severely out of scale in relation to the One X is an indication that this could be a photoshop job. It's not for certain of course, since HTC certainly could have gotten the scale wrong as well. But, for now I won't panic about this Evo One variant looking so much uglier than the other One devices until the event in New York tomorrow.

Size is wrong? its the same as the OneX...

 

The One X is on the left, the One S is on the right (based on the T-Mobile branding), and the alleged Evo One is in the middle. The One S should be significantly smaller than the One X, but it isn't in the image.

The OneS is not really out of scale there.....looks like many of the other photos in comparison b/w the OneS and OneX...the devices screens are different and easily to tell so in the photo, and the actual size of the device is not really much different...

See the photo here with the 3 series next to each other in real life...

The One S and One X differ in width (4.9mm) much more than height (3.46mm) based on the reported dimensions. So, using width as a guide, I compared the widths of the devices in the leaked photo:

 

One X: 180 pixels

One S: 173 pixels

 

So the One S is 3.8% more narrow than the One X in terms of pixels in the leaked photo.

 

However, we know the width specification already for these:

 

One X: 69.9 mm

One S: 65 mm

 

The One S is actually 7% more narrow than the One X. So I think it's fair to say that the leaked photo is out of scale. Maybe I overstated it when I said "severely" though.

Right now I'm hopeful that we see something else, something much more pleasing to the eye tomorrow. If this what HTC is bringing to the table, I'll be looking more closely at the GNex or SGIII.

Kind of looks like the same iconic design of the previous EVO's. Personally I hope it stays closer to the One X look. Just a cleaner design IMO.

 

They need something fresh. I thought they said stale design was the reason for their drop in sales

I thought the E4GT did not photograph well. I thought it looked a little homely and boring in photos. But looking and holding it in person turned me on to the design right away.

Maybe. I liked the renderings of the E4GT and even more in person. I was never really drawn to the EVO, but it just grew on me the longer I had it. IMHO, HTC just needs to get away from the pure rectangle look. I know that many like it, and you can pretty much tell its an HTC at a glance but to me its just getting old. To me the new designs are appealing and fresh.

Really?....I run across this over at xda all the time and just don't understand when people complain about the design of the phones....personally rectangle is the only acceptable shape...what else do you want? A starfish shaped phone?

 

And to me the Samsung GS series phones all look the same from the first to the last......

There is no comparison between the One X and the supposed image of the Evo One. To me the design of the One X blows that Evo rendering away. I'm really hopeful what is unveiled tomorrow looks better than the leaked image.

Although it's just my opinion, I agree with this post completely.

    • Update just showed up for both of my phones. So far I don't notice any difference, LTE TA is still reporting as 0, I was hoping the new routine might fix that. I sent a diag report from both phones in case you need any of that info. I'll let you know in a day or so if its crashing as frequently or not. 
    • A new SignalCheck Pro beta release is rolling out now, and should become available on Google Play shortly! Some notable changes: New "swipe to refresh" -- flick down on the main screen, and the data will "refresh" -- I put this in quotes because it will *not* force the modem to be polled (that's unfortunately not possible), but it will 'wake up' the app and display the latest information if for some reason your screen did not automatically update. I am still working on improving this. New cell identification methods for Android 12+ devices -- new routines are available in Android 12 and this is my first attempt at implementing them. I have not seen any changes positive or negative on my Pixel 6, but hopefully someone sees improvements. I will continue exploring these methods and adding new features as I get them working. Location service auto-restart -- if your location has not changed in 10 minutes, the background location service should restart itself. This is a work in progress that I intend to optimize during beta testing. Missing/invalid TAC values included in web uploads -- this will need some testing, because I can't replicate it myself. The option to log cells with missing TAC must be enabled for this to have an impact. Feedback welcome as always!
    • Another converted keep site: Sprint eNB 9436 -> T-Mobile eNB 895067 (40.60777246698788,-74.16199692361377) Looks like they're using the FFVV-65A-R2-V1 here, as well!   Edit: Also, I know this technically isn't NYC, but here's a Jersey City conversion. Not 100% sure on either eNB. Sprint eNB 105863 -> T-Mobile eNB 876452 (40.72265196811989,-74.08804945021805)
    • More confirmations incoming! T-Mobile eNB 880561 (40.74176835140717, -73.88364207139453)   Sprint eNB 6191 / T-Mobile eNB 880065 (40.71339007010928, -73.85695387371624) Confirmed this site but was unable to get a photo because the antennas are set back from the edge of the building. I could see them from super far away but there wasn't a good area for me to pull over and snap a pic.   Sprint eNB 6189 / T-Mobile eNB 877995 (40.71183894845567, -73.83529788316665)   Sprint eNB 253741 / T-Mobile eNB 875537/875538 (40.70170960850086,-73.83302208208359)   Sprint eNB 79912 / T-Mobile eNB 875989 (40.86349197342981, -73.923456682535) — — — — — T-Mobile eNB 880536 in the Bronx isn't a Sprint conversion but rather, T-Mobile changed the eNB when they upgraded the site. The nearest Sprint site at 40.8150405321864, -73.93010756429787 still has all of its antennas up and is literally within spitting distance of two other T-Mobile sites in an area that's very industrial as opposed to residential or commercial so a keep site isn't particularly necessary. You can see on Cellmapper that the old eNB stopped broadcasting about two days after the new eNB went live.  — — — — — Also wanted to add that I spotted AT&T C-band antennas quite a bit in both Queens and the Bronx. I would expect a summer C-band launch announcement from them because they're moving FAST. At least in my area, it seem like they're upgrading at a faster pace than Verizon is. Some more pics: AT&T eNB 116408 / T-Mobile eNB 42887 in Woodhaven. This one is interesting because T-Mobile upgraded this site but in the process didn't put any Ericsson n41 antennas. There are just two of the RFS antennas that we normally get.   AT&T eNB 112047, bad pic but the arrows on the billboard are pointing right at the C-band antenna lol   — — — — — Last edit I promise: I noticed T-Mobile submit a permit to convert the keep site I found in Staten Island (Sprint eNB 75141). I 100% guessed it's location since I connected to it literally 4.5 miles across the water while inside a building. Glad to see I was right!
