HTC EVO Design 4G leak confirms specs
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.

Considering the Prime & Vigor aren't "too far from hitting the shelves" either it really shows that this phone is lacking in terms of specs. Let's just hope the price is about $100ish on contract or this phone will fail.

Actually, there are 3 phones and 1 tablet with "Evo" in its name. There is the EVO 4G, Evo Shift 4G, and the Evo 3D for phones and EVO View 4G for tablet. Also, the Evo 3D has a 4.3in screen and not a 4in.

Seems to be a refresh of the (soon to be extinct) original Evo 4G for those looking for a midrange, keyboard-less smartphone...as long as its $150 or less before rebate, and sport a WiMax chip, this should sell fairly well

...but they could've come up with a better name...Evo Design? Bring back the Hero name, that worked just fine

i liked that they were bringing back the Hero name more..oh well. this might end up coming with Sense 3.5 if it's coming out around the same time frame as the Bliss on Verizon. Sense 3.5 might be a version more suitable for lower spec'd devices.

I've been looking forward to this. Evo 3D and Photon are just too dang big, and I'm not going to hold out for the GSII + whatever patches it inevitably will need to be functional.
