    We wrote a few days ago about the upcoming debut of HTC’s newest Superphone – the HTC EVO 3D.

    Thankfully, the device has been confirmed, and will be available on Sprint as early as June 2011.

    Yesterday at CTIA, Sprint and HTC collectively announced the HTC EVO 3D. This particular Android Phone is exciting, because it represents the latest in the line of Sprint’s most popular Android phones available.

    Things of note include a massive 4.3 qHD (960×540) display, an amazingly powerful 1.2Ghz dual core processor, dual 5 megapixel 3D cameras, 1 GB RAM, and 4GB 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.”

    We provided some earlier specs with 100% accuracy, with HTC being known for generating excitement by leaking info to their devices.

    While early leaks indicated that the device would have Android 3.0, we knew this would be impossible. Others in the blogosphere said that it could potentially even have Android 2.4, to take advantage of the dual core processor on board, but this would prove to be unlikely too. However, unlike the just release Motorola Atrix, and soon to be released Motorola Droid Bionic, the HTC EVO 3D will feature the latest Android 2.3 with HTC’s new Sense UI.

    Pricing was not announced, but we have reason to believe it will go for $199 on a 2 year contract. Sprint did also mention that the EVO 3D would be available early this summer, which we believe means early June.

    Specs:

    • Dual core 1.2GHz processor
    • 4.3” 3D qHD (540×960) sLCD display
    • 4G WiMAX technology
    • Dual 5 megapixel main 3D cameras
    • Android 2.3 with latest HTC Sense
    • Front-facing 1.3 megapixel camera
    • DLNA and HDMI (MHL) video output
    • 1730mAh Li-Ion battery
    • Dual microphones for noise suppression
    • Digital compass, G-Sensor, Light sensor, GPS/AGPS

     

     

    Any thoughts? Which of these superphones will you be picking up this year? Does 3D matter to you?

      I am not due for upgrade until July 1 on my Palm Pre. Maybe Sprint will let me upgrade a month early so I can get my hands on this beauty!!

        Charles, the Spring sales reps should be able to upgrade you at least 15 days early, that is what mine did for me. I just upgraded to an EVO 3 earlier this month, and my 30-day grace period to return the phone will be expiring this Saturday. Guess what I will be doing now that you guys broke the news? It will be difficilt going back to my BB after getting used to my Android apps, but early June you say? That’s definitely worth the wait!
