The long wait to get the HTC EVO 4G LTE is finally over for EVO enthusiasts. After being held up since May 18, Sprint has announced that the phone will be hitting retail stores this Saturday on June 2. Got your $200 ready? Good.

Getting the HTC EVO 4G LTE should be as easy as making your way to Sprint stores, buying it from the carrier’s website, or ordering through telesales operators, starting tomorrow. For those who prefer to do it the traditional way, it’s best to call your local branches ahead to check for the phone’s availability. Some people are reporting that several stores apparently weren’t even aware of the new launch date yet. It’s possible that not all stores have unpacked their inventory, so you may not want to come too early.

Aside from Best Buy, which has announced that it will start selling the phone on June 2, it’s still unknown whether other third-party retailers will also be getting their stocks of HTC EVO 4G LTE this week. We’re sure there are many who tried to take advantage of the $50 pre-order discount of the phone on Amazon Wireless, and as of now, the online retailer still hasn’t listed a shipment date on its website.

As a refresher, the HTC EVO 4G LTE is a rebranded – and in many ways redesigned – HTC One X. The phone boasts a dual-core 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 processor, a 4.7-inch HD Super IPS LCD2 screen, 1GB of RAM,  16GB internal storage, microSD card slot, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, 2,000mAH battery, and a kickstand.

  • I was actually thinking of leaving Sprint as I get poor reception in some key areas, but being one of the first original EVO owners in the country, I’m a big fan of this phone…it’s upgrade or wait till the Samsung Galaxy SIII comes out and jump to another carrier. Ugh, decisions!
