The Evo 3D, the first smartphone in the U.S. that can shoot and display 3-D pictures and videos, is the latest unconventional device from Sprint. The wireless provider has embraced its underdog role and introduced a number of unique products over the past few years in an effort to expand its portfolio and lure customers away from its much larger rivals.
The HTC EVO 3D is a 4G WiMax enabled device and it’s the successor to one of Sprint’s longtime flagship devices, the HTC EVO 4G. It’s going to come with a 4.3-inch qHD display – same size as the EVO 4G but with a higher resolution – and the display will be able to handle glasses-free 3D content.
As for the processor, the EVO 3D takes a big leap from the processor on the original EVO. The EVO 3D will feature a 1.2 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon dual-core processor making it Sprint’s first WiMax handset with a dual-core processor.It will also come with Android 2.3 with the new HTC Sense 3.0 out of the box. Gingerbread, while confirmed for release, has yet to come to the HTC EVO 4G.
