Alert the hounds, a new Android powerhouse is on the prowl. Destined for Sprint in the US, the HTC EVO 3D is shaping up to the Android handset to beat, at least on paper. Equipped with a 4.3-inch qHD 3D “glasses-free” display, 1.2 GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor, and Android 2.3 Gingerbread, we are looking at the future of Android smartphones.
There’s nothing like an official smartphone announcement to kick off your day. Sprint unveiled the HTC EVO 3D at CTIA Wireless this morning, confirming earlier reports that HTC was working on a new dual-core flagship (previously codenamed Pyramid). The HTC EVO 3D packs a 4.3-inch qHD (960 x 540) capacitive touchscreen, 1.2 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon dual-core processors, Android 2.3 Gingerbread with HTC Sense, 3G/4G mobile hotspot capability and of course access to more than 150,000 apps in the Android Market.
On the back of the EVO 3D are dual 5-megapixel cameras which can capture 3D video in 720p HD or 1080p in 2D. On the front is a 1.3-megapixel camera for video chat. A 3D verson of Blockbuster OnDemand app comes pre-loaded on the EVO 3D with access to 2D and 3D movies, TV shows and games for rent or purchase. Rounding out the features is a HDMI port (up to 1080p), DLNA, 3.5mm headphone jack, 1730 mAh battery, 4GB internal memory, microSD card slot and stereo Bluetooth.
For now the HTC EVO 3D live and breaths in the US on Sprint, but we expect a GSM version to rear its head very soon. Welcome to the future of Android.
