Sprint must have taken a look at HTC’s One XL, and if they wanted their adoring masses to gain access to this particular device the easy way, they could easily have asked HTC to include a compatible radio with Sprint’s network. Apparently, Sprint decided otherwise, and decided to work with HTC to deliver the polished product, which is the HTC EVO 4G LTE, by tweaking the One XL design and throwing in a larger battery, a microSD memory card slot as well as a spanking new case to hold all of its precious innards within.
Sprint did not yet reveal just when the smartphone will hit the market, but we are quite sure that rumblings on the ground point towards a rollout sometime in the first two weeks of June. At least the Sprint HTC Evo 4G LTE has finally made its way to the FCC in order to gain the necessary certification papers before it is deemed fit for a public rollout. Frequency support for Sprint’s CDMA and EV-DO bands were shown in the FCC filing, including LTE band 25 that Sprint relies on for its 4G service.
