HTC Evo Design 4G linked to Kingdom
Sprint's HTC Evo Design 4G has had more of its details firmed up in a leak of a ROM update utility (RUU) on Wednesday. Known to be the Kingdom, it should have the 540x960 display of higher-end HTC phones but a a four-inch display that should produce a much sharper image. What Android and Me saw was almost a sequel to the Droid Incredible 2 as it had a faster 1.2GHz single-core Snapdragon and Android 2.3.4, but it would go to a lower resolution five-megapixel camera and keep the 768MB of RAM.
The Sprint version is already known to be carrying WiMAX and for that reason will be a big leap over Verizon's older phone. International users will get HSPA+ for 3G.
A ship date isn't known for the Evo Design 4G, although it might sync up with the fall CTIA event in October. Alltel is now poised to get the same design as well but may call it the Acquire.
