HTC and Sprint have just announced the successor to the highly successful EVO 4G the EVO 3D. As the rumors suggested, the EVO 3D packs a 4.3-inch qHD (960×540) glasses-free 3D display.
The handset is powered by a 1.2GHz dual-core Qualcomm MSM8660 processor and packs 768MB of RAM. The back of the handset sports dual-5MP cameras with dual-LED flash, which are capable of recording 720p HD videos in 3D mode (glasses free), and 1080p in 2D mode. Like the EVO 4G, the EVO 3D also supports Sprint’s WiMAX network. The handset will launch with Android 2.3 Gingerbread on-board, with the latest version of Sense running on top of it. The usual Wi-Fi, GPS with A-GPS, Accelerometer and a 3.5mm audio jack are also present. The handset also sports a mini-HDMI port and DLNA capabilities.
Users can connect their EVO 3D to their 3D enabled HDTV and enjoy 3D content. Sadly, the kickstand found at the back of the original EVO 4G is nowhere to be found on the EVO 3D. HTC also states that they have improved the battery life over the EVO 4G, and will ship the phone with a 1730mAh battery.
The EVO 3D will be available starting this summer. Sadly, HTC and Sprint did not mention anything about the pricing of the EVO 3D.
