Picture This! HTC10 Coming to Sprint LTE Plus Network

By Michelle Leff Mermelstein
 

HTC fans will be thrilled to hear that Sprint intends to carry HTC10 on its recently expanded LTE Plus Network, delivering faster download speeds than AT&T, Verizon and T-Mobile. An availability date will be announced shortly.

Announced today by HTC, the new HTC10 boasts amazing camera features including a best in class optical Image stabilization on both the front and back camera. The camera’s laser focusing senses distance faster and more reliably than previous HTC smartphones.  Taking photos in low light situations is a breeze with HTC10’s 12MP ultra-pixel 1.55UM sensor, F 1.89. Music lovers will appreciate its 24-bit HTC BoomSound audio taking music, movies, and games to a new level. HTC10 also adds fingerprint security and a bigger battery.

Faster Speeds with Sprint LTE Plus
Sprint LTE Plus is available in more than 150 U.S. markets, takes advantage of Sprint’s rich triband spectrum portfolio and uses some of the world’s most advanced technologies in wireless, such as two-channel carrier aggregation and antenna beamforming. With LTE Plus, Sprint customers with compatible devices can experience peak download speeds in excess of 100 Mbps.

According to Sprint’s analysis of recent Nielsen Mobile Performance Data, the Sprint LTE Plus Network beat Verizon, AT&T and T-Mobile by delivering faster download speeds1. Recently, the Sprint LTE Plus Network doubled its initial reach and now covers more than 150 markets across the country.

50 Percent off Competitor Plans
While the exact device pricing will be shared closer to launch, Sprint continues to offer customers the opportunity to save 50 percent off most AT&T, T-Mobile and Verizon standard rate plans when they switch to Sprint2. In addition, Sprint will cover switching fees up to $650 per line3.

There has never been a better time to be a Sprint customer – especially with the upcoming launch of HTC10. For the latest news on this and other Sprint devices, check out www.sprint.com.
