Good news for Sprint customers who are fans of the Motorola X. Starting tomorrow, you will be able to hop on to Sprint’s website or stroll into a store and get yourself Motorola’s latest and perhaps greatest smartphone.
The HTC One, now six months old, but still a highly capable device, is allegedly going to launch in the United States really soon in a new color. A leaked document supplied to PhoneArena shows that Sprint will begin offering the blue HTC One on September 10th, the same day that Apple will unveil the iPhone 5S an 5C. Why do I even bother bringing up Apple? Because they’re going to make so much noise that no company will be able to get the word out about their respective products.
HTC’s 2013 flagship phone, the One, initially shipped in just one color: silver. A few weeks later, the black model started shipping in some countries. Now, nearly half a year after its launch, the red model is out. It’s already on sale in Asia and Europe, but today’s news is that it’s available on Sprint. It’ll cost $200 with a two year contract, and from now until August 30th, if you buy one, you can get another one for free for either someone in your family or a friend.
Between now and the end of this year, Motorola Mobility will hold a press conference to announce the “X Phone”. According to the leaks that have been floating around the internets, it’ll have a 1.7 GHz dual core processor from Qualcomm, 2 GB of RAM, 10 megapixel camera, and a 720p screen. No, it’s not a flagship phone when you compare it to the Galaxy S4 or HTC One, but it’s still no slouch.
