The death of WiMAX has been greatly exaggerated. Well, maybe not, but there’s still a few phones coming out with the wireless standard, all of them apparently from Taiwanese manufacturer HTC. In addition to the HTC EVO V 4G on Virgin Mobile here in the states, Japanese carrier KDDI will be launching the HTC J this summer. So much for that “hero device strategy”, eh HTC?

HTC J goes official with WiMAX for Japan

The J is essentially a One S variant, but it sticks much closer to its source material than the DROID Incredible 4G LTE on Verizon. It’s got the same 4.3-inch qHD screen, 1.5Ghz processor, 8MP camera and Sense-laden Ice Cream Sandwich, but it switches out the storage for 16GB plus a MicroSD card slot. Despite the proliferation of LTE connections (even KDDI themselves are planning a rollout) the HTC J will stick to WiMAX.

As far as design goes, the J is a little more conservative than its One series brothers, sticking with lines and shapes that recall the Sensation series. In a departure from their previous statement, the J will include a free set of Beats earbuds. The UI skin is also heavily customized, presumably at KDDI’s request. The Japanese carrier has not set a definitive price or date yet.
