Good and EVO

What to expect from the HTC EVO’s likely successor

Htc-logoYesterday we reported on the HTC Jewel, a new device that's headed for Sprint and will likely be the third major HTC EVO device to hit the market, after the original EVO 4G and last year's EVO 3D. I should note that, so far, this device is just a rumor – but it's coming from a very reliable source at Pocket Now who has an established history of very accurate HTC leaks.

Having said that, many speculate that the HTC Jewel will essentially be a rebranded One X, which was just announced at Mobile World Congress. And here's what we know about the One X:

  • Dimensions: 134.4 x 69.9 x 9.3 mm
  • Weight: 130g
  • 4.7-inch HD Super LCD2 capacitive touchscreen (720 x 1280)
  • Corning Gorilla Glass
  • Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich)
  • Sense 4.0, with a new in-car experience and HTC Music Hub
  • 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon dual-core processor (The 1.6 GHz quad-core Tegra 3 processor is not compatible with LTE.)
  • GPU: ULP GeForce
  • HTC ImageSense (vastly improved camera software)
  • 1GB RAM
  • 32GB built-in storage
  • 25GB DropBox cloud storage
  • Beats Audio enabled for all apps
  • 8-megapixel (rear) camera with auto-focus and LED flash
  • 1.3-megapixel (front) camera
  • Non-removable 1800mAh battery
  • Bluetooth v3.0 w/ A2DP
  • NFC capable
  • MicroUSB
  • 3.5mm audio output

I can't emphasize enough: These specs describe the HTC One X, not necessarily the HTC Jewel or the next EVO. So while any or all of these might change once this device is released on Sprint, this should still give us somewhat of an idea of what to expect when that time comes.

In other words, there's still time for HTC to add a kickstand. Or maybe it will increase the battery capacity, or even make it removable. I'm fairly certain that Sprint will make some kind of change in order to make its version of this phone unique. So what else would you like to see, or what changes would you make?
