HTC Desire 816

A supposed Sprint version of the HTC Desire 816 seems to have popped up at the FCC, indicating that the device may soon make its U.S. debut. The device has appeared at the FCC under model name 0P9C300, with a sketch highly reminiscent of the Desire 816. It's a CDMA phone with support for LTE bands 25, 26, and 41, indicating compatibility with Sprint's Spark network.

The HTC Desire 816 originally launched at Mobile World Congress 2014 as HTC's mid-range flagship device for 2014. The 816 features a 5.5-inch 720p display, a 1.6GHz Snapdragon 400 CPU, 1.5GB of RAM, and a 13-megapixel camera. It cropped up in China back in March, releasing in several European countries earlier this month. Our review of the phone found it to be a solid device for the size and price.

Not sure a virgin or boost would have spark capabilities. Possibly Sprints prepaid line up though.

Virgin already has Spark capable devices.

Seems like they're going for screen size over quality, how about a smaller screen with superior quality.
