Supposed HTC Desire 816 for Sprint appears at the FCC
The HTC Desire 816 is a pretty well-made phone and a good deal overall considering its reasonable pricing. It isn't available from a US carrier, however, or at least not for now. This might change soon given the evidence that we came across while browsing the FCC.
An HTC smartphone going by the model name 0P9C300 has just popped up at the commission's database. It is a CDMA device with support for LTE bands 25, 26, and 41, which is a clear indication that it is compatible with Sprint's Spark network. What makes us think that we're dealing with an HTC Desire 816 variant is the rough sketch indicating the FCC label's placement. The handset depicted in the drawing really reminds us of an HTC Desire 816, judging by its proportions, as well as by the placement of its ports and buttons.
Of course, this FCC filing does not guarantee that the HTC Desire 816 will launch on Sprint, but it leads us to believe that this is going to happen in the near future. Those who may be interested in owning one might want to check out our HTC Desire 816 review.
