The smartphone known as the HTC Kingdom has passed through the FCC. The HTC Kingdom is a device we’ve heard of once before, about a month ago, when some details about it (including a purported picture) first leaked. That leak got most things right – chief among them the fact that this handset will be sold by Sprint in the US.
The FCC confirmed that when it listed the fact that this phone has both a CDMA and a WiMax radio – those being Sprint’s 2G/3G and 4G techs, respectively. The fact that Sprint is the only major carrier in the US to use that combo basically seals the deal – this is going to join Sprint’s smartphone portfolio.
Interestingly enough, the FCC filing reveals that the Kingdom (known by its model number PH44100) will have a 4.3-inch qHD (540×960) touchscreen, whereas the leak from last month spoke of a 4-inch screen. Either way, it’s going to be big.
Unfortunately the Kingdom’s stop at the FCC didn’t reveal anything else, so for now let’s wish it travels safely on its way to Sprint, and hope we find out more details about it soon.
