[Rumor] Sprint LTE Roadmap Outs Galaxy Nexus, LG Viper and New EVO Release Details

Posted In News - By Mark Hearn On Monday, March 19th, 2012 9:02am PST With 18 Comments

As the general public at large continues to wonder when will Sprint crank out some new hardware, it appears that we may finally have an answer. An undocumented source has advised S4GRU that the Now Network’s first LTE smartphone will be released in less than a month, April 15th to be exact. But the spillage doesn’t dry here, as their report also claims that Google’s purebred Galaxy Nexus will be accompanied by the LG Viper. But wait, wait, we’re still not done. The hat trick of this announcement plays off of recent MWC speculation that the recently announced HTC One X is Sprint-bound under the codename “Jet,”but will arrive as Sprint’s first LTE EVO device on June 10th.

If these claims hold true, we could very well be looking at the perfect storm to jumpstart Sprint’s LTE adventure. With the first predicted device slated to debut in a few weeks we wont have to wait too much longer. But even if off the mark, Sprint’s current predicament can’t be avoided and immediate action is definitely needed.

His love affair with the Now Network started with the release of the Treo 600 back in 2004 and has been going strong ever since. Highly opinionated and somewhat eccentric he shares his ramblings about his network of choice here at SprintFeed.

    They need to call the Jet what it is, HTC ONE and leave it at that. It will help Sprint, from a marketing stand point to compete against other carriers marketing the same phone as HTC ONE. Point blank, changing the name to the EVO or Jet or EVO Jet is stupid and suicide marketing for that phone. Its akin to releasing the Motorola Razr but calling it Motorola Slim or Motorola Svelte. From a mmarketing standpoint, show off your HTC ONE as a competitor to other carriers versions and not as a different phone people won’t want because they think its a different product.

    Although you do make a point about not changing the name so people will not think its a different product, it should be coming out around the anniversary of the EVO and may be considered to be the true successor to the EVO 4G. Naming it the HTC EVO X is fine by me.

    If the roadmap were to include the Galaxy Note, then my life would be complete. lol

    “Jet” is just the internal codename for the device. Not what it is actually called. Chill out.

  • Davidksims

    I’m with you otherwise I’m going back to AT&T!!!

    I want nexus already tired of HTC and Sense!

  • ChadBroChillz

    They need to bring back the EVO branding, and include it in other smartphone manufactures, not just HTC phones, BUT This is great news. Sprint is not backing down.

  • Tommy Thompson

    No, they don’t need to do what Verizon does with the “Droid” series. Keeping it with one manufacturer makes more sense.

  • Tommy Thompson

    The EVO brand is a more popular brand in the states then the “ONE” would be. The original EVO was one of Sprints highest selling devices.

    It does make sense,EVO with no HTC sense is no an EVO

  • cashd00d

    Other than geeks, nobody knows what an “HTC One” is. There hasn’t been an HTC One device released in the US yet. Many people know what an EVO is. Motorola called it the Razr because it already has HUGE name value.

  • Josh W

    but there is also a samsung made droid charge on verizon so your point is moot

  • Tommy Thompson

    Uhhhh that IS MY POINT. EVO brand should just be HTC UNLIKE the “Droid” brand that is every manufacturer. Learn to read a little better next time. ;)

  • cashd00d

    As Tommy alluded to, there are Motorola, HTC, and Samsung devices in the Droid lineup. They don’t really have anything in common other than the name and network.

    On Sprint, all EVO devices are actually related.

    Nexus, Galaxy, HTC… Sounds like some great options coming our way. Now to figure out which one will be the best of the bunch. From what I have read so far the HTC One X sounds to be my choice but I haven’t read much on the Galaxy 3. I have heard good and bad about the Nexus but I wont rule it out either.

  • Sprintguy22

    Get the Note or it is ATT for me

  • AyaisMUsikWhore

    Are you 100% sure you really want to go to ATT (unless it’s the only thing that works in your area)? It’s ATT, ijs

    What’s the point of theses great devices when a handful of cities will have LTE. Anyone with sprint knows that the 3g speeds are horrible and the new phones don’t have Wi-max. So I guess your new phone will enjoy those 3g speeds.
