Sprint’s HTC Kingdom 4G Android phone detailed

HTC enthusiast forum 911sniper has gotten its hands on a ROM from the HTC Kingdom, an unannounced Android 2.3.3 smartphone that we now know to be headed to Sprint. We’ve seen the Kingdom in a very blurry image before, but this time several full specs and other details have become available. The device reportedly has a Qualcomm MSM7630 Snapdragon processor clocked at 1.2GHz, 768MB of RAM, a 4-inch qHD display, and a camera capable of recording 720p HD video. The leaked ROM also reveals support for 802.11b/g/n and Sprint’s 4G WiMAX network. Sprint has yet to confirm the device’s existence, so we’re not sure exactly when this device will hit the market, but let’s hope it happens soon because it definitely looks like a nice incremental upgrade.

HTC Kingdom and Rider Android phones spotted

HTC Kingdom and Rider Android phones spotted

Here are a couple of leaks to kick off your Friday morning: the HTC Kingdom (left) and the HTC Rider (right) were both spotted and photographed recently by 911Sniper. Specs for the Rider and the Kingdom are slim, so we can only report on what’s apparent in the images. Both phones clearly run Android and appear to have 4.3-inch 960 x 540 qHD displays, although even that’s not confirmed. The circles around the main icons on the Rider remind us of an EVO device (perhaps this is Sprint bound?), and we definitely dig the red exterior. We doubt this is the last we’ll see of both phones, so we’re looking forward to clearer shots and more spec leaks in the coming weeks and months. More →
