EVO 3D, EVO View, and Nexus S to be announced by Sprint at CTIA

4 years ago 36

It’s been a few days since Sprint sent out invitations to their press event at CTIA. While we certainly have our own ideas as to what Sprint will announce, an anonymous tipster has come forward, possibly revealing Sprint’s big announcement agenda.

The source claims that Sprint has three Android devices waiting to be unveiled at CTIA. Two phones and one tablet. The first phone will be the Nexus S which will be equipped with WiMax capabilities. As you may recall Sprint did have plans to launch the original Nexus One last year, but changed their mind since the handset wouldn’t offer anything unique over the T-Mobile and AT&T versions that were being sold by Google.

The second handset Sprint will unveil at CTIA with be the HTC EVO 3D. As the name implies, the HTC EVO 3D will feature 3D capabilities (though we’re not sure what those are at this moment) and we’re pretty sure it’ll support Sprint’s 4G WiMax network. We do not know the specs of the HTC EVO 3D, but the hope is that the handset will be similar to the rumored HTC Pyramid (dual-core 1.2 GHz Snapdragon processor [MSM8260] and a 4.3 inch qHD display) which should be heading to T-Mobile later this spring.

Since Verizon has the XOOM and T-Mobile has the G-Slate, Sprint has decided to offer up their own Android tablet: the HTC EVO View. The only detail we have right now is the tablet’s name, but we’re assuming that it will be pretty similar to the HTC Flyer which is running a 1.5 GHz Qualcomm processor, with a 7-inch display, Android 2.3, and HTC’s new Scribe technology.

While everything above may sound feasible, we’re still labeling it all as rumors until we can get some concrete evidence. But that doesn’t mean we’re not excited! If the report does turn out to be true, which of three devices will you be picking up?
