White-HTC-EVO-4G-LTE Sprint is pushing out a new update for the HTC EVO 4G LTE. If you were hoping it was the latest release of Jelly Bean, Android 4.2, it isn’t. The new update is very minor as it only fixes a few minor bugs with the device. Don’t get us wrong, bug fixes are always welcomed, but it’s nothing to get excited about.

The most major thing about this update is that audio/video output via an MLH cable has been added. There has also been a few bugs fixed and tweaks to the handset’s proximity sensor, WiFi connectivity and Bluetooth compatibility. Sprint also notes that annoying issues with Android applications shutting down have been resolved. So if you’ve been suffering from these issues, this update will be awesome for you.

The update is being pushed out over the air. You’ll need to head into Settings, then About Phone to grab it! After completing the update your software version should be 3.16.651.3. If it isn’t coming up, give it a little while. OTAs often get pushed out in stages. Has anyone gotten the update for the HTC EVO 4G LTE yet? Have the tweaks and fixes being noticeable?
