Sprint will soon relaunch the Sanyo Katana Eclipse as the Sanyo Katana Eclipse X.
The Katana Eclipse X will feature EL lights on the front flip, but is otherwise identical to the original model. The biggest difference will be in the phone software as it will launch with the BREW UI-based OneClick user interface, which PhoneNews.com has covered in-depth and exposed its major flaw in the lack of an available user toggle for people that do not wish to use the interface.
With Sanyo being a popular and widely lauded brand on the carrier, it remains to be seen whether loyalists will like and accept the change, as Sanyo users have proven to be the most vocal and opinionated customers on the increasingly beleaguered carrier.
There is no launch or pricing information at this time.
