Sprint announces HTC EVO 3D, arrives sometime this summer
Sprint has finally ended all of the speculation about their successor to the original HTC EVO 4G and at CTIA today made the HTC EVO 3D official adding a glasses-free 3D device to their expansive list of 4G-enabled devices.
The specifications are exactly what we thought they would be. The HTC EVO 3D includes a 4.3-inch qHD display, a 1.2 GHz Snapdragon dual-core processor, Android 2.3 Gingerbread with the new version of HTC Sense on top of it, simultaneous voice and data capability in 4G and Wi-Fi coverage areas, and a 1730 mAh Lithium-ion battery with an unspecified amount of battery life.
It will also use 4GB of internal memory, 1GB of RAM and an 8GB microSD card will be included. As expected, the HTC EVO 3D will weigh 6 ounces which is a little heavier than the recently released HTC ThunderBolt.
It also, obviously, has access to Sprint’s 4G WiMax network.
Sadly, as is the case with most of these announcements, Sprint left official pricing and a solid release date out of the picture only saying that it will become available sometime this summer for a price that will be announced closer to launch.
