For a while it was believed that the HTC Kingdom would be called the HTC Hero 4G. Instead, it was given the EVO moniker just as 3 smartphones (and 1 tablet) had before it. The specifications of the HTC EVO Design 4G are pretty much what they were first rumored to be.
It will indeed pack a single-core 1.2GHz, Qualcomm Snapdragon S2 (MSM7630) processor under the hood. While that doesn’t necessarily shout the words mid-range device, the fact that isn’t packing a dual-core chip like many newer handsets may disqualify it from any high-end consideration. The EVO Design 4G will also have 768MB of RAM.
The screen on this smartphone should be a pretty good one. It will feature a 4-inch, 540x960 qHD capacitive display, which is the same type of display (although it is smaller) found on Sprint’s latest EVO offering, the HTC EVO 3D. The EVO Design 4G will also come out of the box with Android Gingerbread 2.3.4 on board. Odds are that it will also be decked out with HTC’s Sense 3.0 user interface as well.
In the camera department the HTC EVO Design 4G will feature two. On the back of the device is a 5 megapixel shooter with 720p HD video recording capabilities while a 1.3 megapixel camera is perched on the front.
The HTC EVO Design 4G shouldn’t be too far away from hitting shelves. When it does, will you consider it over other Sprint offerings such as the HTC EVO 3D, the Motorola Photon 4G or the Samsung Epic Touch 4G? Tell us what you think in the comments below.
