Yet another HTC smartie has been leaked online ahead of its official unveiling, this time the HTC Kingdom, currently heading stateside to the Sprint 4G network.

Leaked snaps of the hitherto unseen handset was uncovered by Pocketnow, only a day after its ROM was posted online, revealing the range of features we can expect from Taiwanese giant’s latest effort.

Standout specs include a 1.2GHz Qualcomm MSM7630 (Scorpion) processor that is a tad disappointingly a single core variety rather than the dual core type featuring on a number of high-end blowers unveiled so far this year. This is teamed with an Adreno 205 GPU, plus 768MB of RAM and a four-inch Super LCD screen with qHD resolution.

A five-megapixel snapper with dual LED flash and autofocus is onboard and shoots videos in 720p, while a front-facing 1.3-megapixel webcam is there for making video calls. In terms of extras, there’s Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n, coupled with Bluetooth 3.0 and WiMax support. More interestingly perhaps, the Bluetooth chip onboard supports both FM Receive and Transmit, which suggests that the handset may be able to wirelessly stream content to the car radio.

We’re not sure what good that’ll do, but rest of us who rely on public transport will be pleased to know the Kingdom will ship with Gingerbread, 2.3.3, so there’ll be no waiting on the sidelines for an update.

No word yet if the handset will be making its way to Blighty but specs suggest that it most likely will ship with native GSM, EvDO and WiMax support, as well as CDMA for international compatibility. So keep ‘em peel for an announcement soon.
