Well, you can strike the HTC Kingdom from the list of rumored upcoming HTC phones. It turns out that was the codename of the HTC EVO 3D for Sprint.
The leaked ROM that lead to this discovery is already being ported to the HTC EVO 4G and devs say there’s a good chance they’ll get the 4G (WiMAX) connectivity going, which is usually a problem with custom ROMs.
The ROM is riddled with clues that the Kingdom is in fact the HTC EVO 3D – there’s Sprint’s name, the WiMAX hardware support, the qHD screen and a handful of 3D apps and widgets.
Another disappointing conclusion is that the HTC Kingdom isn’t the GSM-flavored EVO 3D that HTC France seemingly confirmed.
On the up side, if the ROM porting goes okay, HTC EVO 4G owners will get Android 2.3.3 Gingerbread with the latest HTC Sense UI, which old devices like the 4G won’t be getting through official channels.
