This morning, Sprint is sending out invites to their event on April 29th which they are calling “Hear it for yourself”. Now obviously we don’t know for sure what they mean by this, but we can pretty much figure out that they are talking about their rollout of HD Voice elsewhere. Right now, HD Voice is only available in Kansas City, but it is expected to be available elsewhere by July 1st. With this event taking place in New York City, I’d expect to see HD Voice launch there before July 1st. Unless, of course, this event has nothing to do with HD Voice, but I’m betting it is. Sprint also has about 24 smartphones on their shelves that support HD Voice, including all the latest flagships like the LG G2, Samsung Galaxy Note 3, Samsung Galaxy S5, and the HTC One M8. We’ll probably also see a demo of HD Voice at this event which is typical for events like this.
It’s not often that Sprint holds events like this, so it must be something pretty big. We could even see more than just HD Voice at this event, but that’s basically a given right there. Maybe they’ll announce some new incentives to bring in more customers? Or some updates on their network? One thing is for sure, we’ll be watching to see what the nation’s third largest carrier has to announce in about 4 weeks time.
One thing that we shouldn’t expect, is an announcement that Sprint has bought T-Mobile. While it wouldn’t be out of the question, I’ve just never seen a company hold a press event to announce they bought another company. But we’ll see HD Voice and maybe some plans on VoLTE as well. Anyone else have any bets on what Sprint will announce on 4.29.14? Be sure to shoot them in the comments down below. We love speculation, in case you hadn’t noticed already.
