Sprint will be introducing a very high-end HTC smartphone code-named the Supersonic, if some leaked information is correct.
In some ways, this model will be close to the HTC HD2, but with Google’s Android OS instead of Microsoft’s Windows Mobile. Most notably, both models will have 4.3-inch touchscreens and slim tablet shapes.
It’s not yet known yet if the Supersonic will have a 1 GHz Snapdragon processor like the current model, but there’s evidence to suggest that it will.
In addition, the upcoming smartphone will supposedly offer something not in its predecessor: the 4G networking standard WiMAX.
It will reportedly have a stand to hold it up while the user is watching movies on the comparatively large screen, as well as HTC Sense, this company’s alternate user interface that expends on Google’s standard one.
The source for this leak had no additional details on the Supersonic, such as the camera resolution or battery capacity.
