    Here is the good article from Phone Arena:
    HTC Kingdom comes to Sprint customers as the HTC Hero 4G - Phone Arena
    Here is a second article from Phone Dog:
    HTC Kingdom may be known as the HTC Hero 4G when it hits Sprint | PhoneDog

    Interesting and exciting! My Wife really wants this phone. I'm hoping for more information soon.

    Three things I really want to know:

    Sense 3.0?
    Dual or Single core? (some sites say dual, some single)
    4" screen for sure?

    If this is a sense 3.0, dual core, and 4" screen device, I'm there. I'll wait for root on it. If it is older sense and single core, I may just have to wait on a dual core device. I'm not digging the Evo 3D at this point.

    Probably Sense 3.0
    Single Core.
    Yes. 4" qHD for sure.

    There are leaks everywhere at this point... It seems single core and 4" qHD for certain. If this isn't a dual core, they better have tweaked the heck out of it to squeeze every last drop of performance or I'll skip it and get something different. I REALLY wanted the slightly smaller form factor.

    As you can see, the Hero 4G (Kingdom) has a smaller screen but stands a little bit taller and slimmer. So I would say it's a different form factor, but not necessarily smaller.

    Edit: The following link has a picture of the two phone next to each other but it should not be an indication of their sizes next to each other.

    Well. That pretty much ends that. I guess as soon as root is discovered on the 3D, that'll be my next phone.

    Pocketnow just copied and pasted two leaked shots next to each other. We have no idea if the two images are to the same scale. I am as curious as anyone to find out the true dimensions of the Hero 4G.

    Ohh, wow! I didn't know that. Nobody has exact dimensions for the phone. We have been going on that image. I'll try to look into this more for you guys.

    Edit:
    Ok, completely speculating that the Kingdom/Hero4G is the same height at the Evo3D, here is what they would look like. Check out the thumbnail below.

    Screen should be the same size as the Atrix, we can try to estimate the total size off of that

    Hmm. I measured out the pixels in the leaked shot, and that screen is not 16:9. It's too long and skinny. That makes me think someone took a photo of another HTC phone and "stretched" it.

    I was on my way to sprint to go ahead and make the leap to the
    Evo 3D, but I think I'll wait it out a little more. Since this isn't a dual core phone, though, I don't know if I could justify getting it knowing it's my 2-year phone.
