Sprint’s HTC One X will be called Jet, available on June 10
The HTC One X is on its way to Sprint. The carrier will launch its version of HTC’s flagship smartphone on June 10, according to S4GRU. Their “internal Sprint sources” claim that the HTC Jet is currently in the making for the Now Network.
‘Jet’ is probably just a codename at this point, but there’s also a slight chance that it will end up being the name under which the new smartphone will be sold. The HTC Jet will come with a dual-core 1.5 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 (Krait) processor, and NFC support. Since the One X is the only device announced so far by HTC that ticks those boxes, the Jet will probably end up being a One X version specifically made for Sprint.
As such, it may be one of the first three 4G LTE devices that Sprint will launch, alongside the Galaxy Nexus and the LG Viper.
June 10 is quite far off right now, so things may of course change. And we’ll be here to tell you if they do.
NOTE: Yes, the HTC One X will launch internationally with Nvidia’s Tegra 3 quad-core processor on board. However, that chipset currently doesn’t support LTE, so for LTE markets, the One X will use the latest dual-core offering from Qualcomm.
