Today at CTIA, Sprint and HTC announced the EVO 3D, the successor to their most successful product ever. Highlights of the device include a 4.3-inch glasses-free 3D display, dual 5 megapixel main 3D cameras, dual-core 1.2 GHz Snapdragon processor, 1 GB RAM, and 4G of internal storage.
“Sprint is taking wireless innovation to the next level once again as we bring our customers the ability to experience 3D on their phone without glasses,” said Steve Elfman, president – Network Operations, Product and Wholesale, Sprint. “HTC EVO 3D makes it easy to take pictures or movies in 3D when you are on vacation, and then feel like you are there again when you view it months later. This device takes full advantage of Sprint’s powerful 4G network and offers the innovation one would expect as the next benchmark device in the prestigious EVO product line.”
The EVO 3D was heavily leaked, so most of the details were already known. About the only surprise when it comes to the hardware was the omission of the popular kickstand.
When it comes to software the EVO 3D will feature the latest Android 2.3 with HTC’s new Sense UI. The EVO 3D will also be the first device pre-loaded with the new Blockbuster On Demand app that has access to a large catalog of movies, including 3D titles.
Pricing was not announced, but Sprint did say the EVO 3D would be available beginning this summer. The original EVO 4G launched in June of last year, so we would expect something similar this time around.
