Rumored launch date for Sprint HTC One X, called the HTC Jet, is June 10th

Rumored launch date for Sprint HTC One X, called the HTC Jet, is June 10th
On Saturday, we told you that there was speculation that Sprint would launch the Samsung GALAXY Nexus on April 15th. Today, the Sprint speculation continues. A source for S4GRU passed along the word that the HTC One X will be launched via the nation's third largest carrier on June 10th. The source says that internally, the device is codenamed the HTC Jet. (You might remember that the Samsung Jet was a featurephone that was supposed to be smarter than a smartphone).

The source for the site didn't actually call the HTC Jet the HTC One X, but apparently all of the specs line up. For example the HTC One X is the only announced model from the Taiwan based manufacturer to use Qualcomm’s Snapdragon S4 MSM8960 processor, with NFC capabilities. This is the same exact processor found in the Jet along with the support for NFC.

The HTC Jet will have that dual-core 1.5GHz dual-core Krait processor under the hood along with 1GB of RAM. The 4.7 inch screen weighs in at 720p and is made of Gorilla Glass 2. This will be the third LTE enabled model for Sprint following the Samsung GALAXY Nexus and the LG Viper, and that explains why the quad-core NVIDIA Tegra 3 is a no-show here. As you might know by now, NVIDIA never taught the Tegra 3 how to play nicely with LTE technology. That is why the AT&T variant of the device, the HTC One XL, also will not feature a quad-core processor.

So dear Sprint customers, do you burn an upgrade next month with the Samsung GALAXY Nexus or do you hold of for June when Sprint's version of the HTC One X is launched as whatever name they decide to use. Considering that June 10th is the two year anniversary of the launch of the carrier's first 4G WiMAX device, the HTC EVO 4G, how does the HTC EVO X 4G sound?

Personally, HTC's evolution hasn't progressed as far as I'd like. It feels consistent, but doesn't excite me as something new. I'll likely be looking to jump to the Samsung Galaxy Nexus (if I don't win one first ;) ) After 2 years with the Evo, a change of scenery is far more exciting.

You complain about HTC not progressing, yet you are going to switch to the Galaxy Nexus? Have fun with that 45nm processor and outdated GPU.

don't act like it's not a powerful piece of hardware because it definitely is.

sure... at this point, they are all powerful pieces of hardware, which is why you must compare them to each other. The current S4 can barely keep up with a T3 in real world tests, while the T3 is using a higher resolution (yea sorry, but Qualcomm's reference board tests dont count)... no matter what, any device using a high end chip that is coming out in 2012 will be enough for most users... but thats not the comparison. in the comparing world the S4 does not measure up to the 2012 competition.. like every S series before it. Call me what you will, but ill bet whatever u want that the S4 ends up at the bottom of the barrel or really darn close to it. "A15" wannabe or not.

Have you looked at the Anandtech comparison? The only thing the S4 "Krait" loses in is the GPU tests ( And one web test by a small margin). The Cortex A-15 isn't a joke. It's around 40% faster compared to the 40nm a9 on the T3. Also you have to take into consideration that most apps aren't optimized for multi cores. Not many are dual-core right now so why would many be quad-core? That would also show that having faster individual cores would prove to be better in real world usage.

remixfa you don't no a s**t about available processors and their benchmark test.. you should just shut your mouth if you don't a stuff about what you are talking about...otherwise you look like a fool.. check Anandtech comparison or any other real review available for S4 and then write on public post...

I'm not saying it's not powerful, I just wouldn't sign a two year contract for a five month old phone. I learned my lesson with my Evo and its hardware that was already dated when it launched (Qualcomm S1, TFT display, etc.)

the evo was a great phone when it released.

Well phones like the Galaxy Nexus are beyond a threshold that really doesn't make those kinds of things matter so much. when Quad-Core phones come out i'll probably still hold strong to my Razr because it's plenty fast.

Oooohheee post one opinion and everyone gets their panties in a bunch and starts flaming people's intelligence when they can't even use proper grammar themselves. ;) I love the internet. HTC always makes the highest quality phones out there. I've never had a defective HTC phone, and they all take a beating, yet keep on ticking. But I drop my phone less than I drop a baby, durability has never been a question for me. However, the actual hardware still looks dated. And to clarify, when I say hardware, I mean the external hardware. The screens typically underwhelm, and the casings still shares very similar design cues that can date back over two years ago to their 2009 phones (take the trackball off the Nexus One and we have the One X...). I don't necessarily care what the chips are inside the phone to a point. I'm not one to hack a phone or push a processor to its limit. As KingKurogiii pointed out, most devs aren't even caught up to the dual cores, they're that much farther behind writing programs for quad core devices. And on top of this, HTC Sense is just way too stale for me. Beats audio does nothing to entice me. And HTC's exclusive apps (Watch, Friend Stream, etc) offer nothing special. Should the Sprint Galaxy Nexus include the spec bumps rumored, the phone will be more than adequate for these next two years and shouldn't be viewed as a 5 month old phone.

so again you prove you don't know what your talking about haha. the Super LCD-2 Display @ 720p Is one of the BEST screens out there. the color reproduction is unmatched. check out this video and you will see how the screen can display absolutely amazing quality with great true color reproduction, not over exaggerated colors like AMOLED as for the design, sure its similar but why change what isn't broke? most people prefer soft corners as they play nice with your hands and overall the look is pleasing to most. it may not be your first pick but i personally think the look is great, its simple yet current.

Dear God. Evo X? That sounds like the most amazing name ever. If I ever bought a phone just based on the name, it would be that. But yeah, this should be good, since I might be switching to Sprint soon :) I'm kind of torn though, should I stay with T-mobile and wait for the One S, or go to Sprint for this? I love the HD display, but I feel like 4.7 wouldn't fit my hand quite right... I really don't mind what processor it has, because I saw the benchmark where the Tegra 3 and S4 scored near the same... And I also like the Micro Arc Oxidation process they use on the One S. Help D:

Best thing to do is to wait and hold them in your hand(s). Guessing how a 4.7" screen on a phone will fit in your hand won't nearly be the same as holding it. From a pure spec / future proof perspective, I'd go for the X over the S. Also keep in mind that the Galaxy S3 will probably hit the states in July or August, so that will be a competitor to keep in mind :)

True, the Exynos chip in the GS3 will out-perform the Tegra and S4... But it probably won't be in the states until Fall, and I'm switching as soon as my contract runs out which is May 29, and at that point the One X and S will be out by then. Plus I don't like the bezel-less design idea; or TouchWiz. Maybe if there is a bezel, and I can put a stock ICS or Sense 4 theme on it (yes, I like Sense, alot) I could hold out until Fall when it releases in the states. Mainly, I'm looking for performance and interface, build quality doesn't matter that much cuz I'm probably gonna put a case on it anyways. I probably will go for the One X, if the bulk from the case isn't too substantial.

The One X / S may not even be out by May 29. Rumor-mill has Sprint's launch of the One X on June 10th, and who knows when the other carriers versions will be released (the Sprint date is probably hoo hah anyway!). So you might be waiting a bit regardless. You should be happy with any of the 3 phones as long as there are no major flaws with the equipment upon release.

Yeah, but the One S is rumored to be released on Tmo in the spring, which, if I'm not mistaken, is March, April, or May. And since my contract runs out at very late May, it will be just in time. And plus Tmo might get its own version of the One X, except it'll be apart of the G-series, so it will have a Tegra 3 with stock ICS :) So, if that rumor happens to be true, which version of the X should I get? The Evo X, or the G3 (possibly)? Basically, which is better, T-mobile or Sprint?

Go to AT&T! Theyre getting an exclusive deal with the One X (the One Xl for them) for at least a little while! And it has the S4!

By the time this releases, we will probably know the full spec sheet of the Samsung GalaxyS3..and at that point it's probably only going to be a ~2 month wait for that to come to sprint (hopefully). My contract's been up for a good 3 months but I've yet to be enticed by a phone, thought about the SGS2 but figured I'd be better off waiting for the Galaxy Nexus ...well that's taken so long that I've lost interest...So now it's either give up and get the Nexus or just go all out and wait on the SGS3.. Touchpro2 still running strong

I'll take quad core over LTE any day. But not on Sprint.

HTC Evo 2X is what I hope will be the name. And boy, Sprint doesn't release flag ship phones that often, but when they, they release them all at once!

there's little doubt in my mind that this will be an EVO but launch dates will be completely out of the window until Qualcomm gets their act together.

Was the delayed said to be a rumor or am I missing something? The One S already has a launch date in April for the UK.

13. KingKurogiii

Posts: 5713; Member since: Oct 23, 2011

that's the Tegra III version. the S4 powered versions are delayed because the people that actually build Qualcomm's Chipsets are having a hard time manufacturing using the 28nm process.

15. willardcw4

Posts: 170; Member since: Oct 01, 2011

I thought that 'rumor' was disproved (the TSMC hold on making S4 chips). My guess is it's the standard 1-3 month period of a phone hitting the shelves in the US after an international release. I don't think there will ever be a true international launch date for any phone if we include the US as a market. And 'ngo2dd' is right about the One S. It uses the S4, not the tegra.

The one S is the S4 on it site in the UK are having the per-order of the all of the one phone. Here is the per-order for the one S. Idk if it is just a rumor or not about the manufacturing of the 28nm process.

17. KingKurogiii

Posts: 5713; Member since: Oct 23, 2011

oh the ONE 'S'. yeah, i was talking about the X but yeah, just going on off of what i heard. in any case i wouldn't say any of the rumored launch dates are solidified yet.

PA has had trouble with links lately, if you actually look through the site it is there, with the One X right beside the One S for pre-orders

PA links don't work very will.
