Sprint-CTIA-HTC-3D110319001733

The rumor mill has been abuzz with gossip about Sprint's CTIA event lately, and if BGR's sources are to be believed, the speculation was spot-on: the conference will indeed be centered around the HTC EVO 3D and EVO View 4G, with a WiMAX version of the Motorola XOOM making an appearance as well.

EVO 3D

First up, we have the EVO 3D - HTC's first foray into three-dimensional territory - which will reportedly feature:

  • A 4.3-inch qHD (960x540) autostereoscopic 3D display
  • 4GB of RAM (I'm thinking this is a typo - even powerhouses like the XOOM and the Atrix only have 1GB of RAM)
  • 1GB of ROM
  • A 1.2GHz Qualcomm 8660 Snapdragon CPU
  • Dual 5MP rear cameras; dedicated camera button included
  • A 1.3MP front-facing camera
  • A 1730mAh battery
  • Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) with HTC's Sense UI
  • Blockbuster on-demand
  • YouTube 3D

EVO View 4G

Just as expected, the EVO View 4G is almost exactly the same tablet as the (admittedly underwhelming) Flyer that HTC demoed at MWC. As a reminder, its specs include:

  • A 7-inch 1024x600 display
  • An aluminum unibody design
  • HTC Scribe with optional stylus support
  • A tablet-optimized version of HTC's Sense UI on top of Android 2.3 (Gingerbread)
  • A 4000mAh battery
  • DLNA and HDMI-out support
  • A 5MP rear camera
  • A 1.3MP front camera

Others

Not interested in the Flyer? That's OK - true to the rumors, the Motorola XOOM is also headed to Sprint. For all intents and purposes, Sprint's XOOM will be identical to Verizon's version, save for a built-in WiMAX radio.

Unfortunately, there's no word on the Nexus S 4G, but we'll keep our fingers crossed nevertheless. One thing's for sure - exciting times lie ahead of us, and we'll be at CTIA to cover whatever Sprint does end up announcing!

    One word to describe this: Awesome

  • John J

    4GB of RAM ftw. Run Windows 7 on this bitch.

    • James

      Pretty sure it's 4GB of flash storage - and is the processor dual-core or ?

      • meguhtron

        This Evo 3d is a dual core processor and someone has a review on the battery life, he shows the live running time and heavy usage without charging it for 19hrs and the battery was in the yellow, not red, so it should have very great battery-life compared to the original evo 4g.

  • mike

    correction-
    The EVO 3D will not be made my HTC.....it is the LG Optimus 3D....although the first EVO was HTC the "EVO" name belongs to sprint and the EVO 3D will be made by LG....still looking forward to it though =]

    • http://www.androidpolice.com/author/jaroslav-stekl/ Jaroslav Stekl

      Incorrect. The LG Optimus 3D and the HTC EVO 3D are separate devices entirely.

  • http://www.nothanks.com Thomas

    Only reason for dual rear cameras is to *record* 3D...

  • James

    Can you take 10MP shots then? :-)

    5 + 5 = 10 ;)

  • SiliconAddict

    Hardware smardware. What I want to know is if Sprint is going to have some sort of deal for existing Sprint users for the Xoom.

  • Josh H.

    I don't think these specs are accurate, and not just the RAM. Relax everyone, Mike doesn't know what the hell he's talking about.. the EVO 3D will be made by HTC.

    • Aaron Gingrich

      Lies, I hear it's going to be made by Toyota!

  • Anjie Cai

    i think it's 4gb internal memory and 1gb ram o_o

    This makes the verizon thunderbolt look like a STEP CHILD... Verizon wanted to have a hand me down product they got it. Everyone knows htc doesn't do business with Verizon never and they got exactly what they wanted last year's evo but the funny part is our current 10month old htc evo 4g is still better there isn't even a toggle 4g switch on there device it just keeps runing and too top it off there bootloader is locked another verizon trick. Evo owners on sprint REJOICE we have truly a WINNER in every way our 2011 lineup has all 4g devices and all the newly announced devices are running 2.3.3ginerbread straight out the box not 2.2 froyo like the thunderbolt and all other verizon products... Welcome our new KING OF ANDROID http://www.androidcentral.com/

      This link is fine but your point is mute.. This about Htc giving verizon exactly what they asked for every true htc device owner knows htc Doesn't lock boatloaders that is not there standard practice they support open so clearly verizon wanted a locked bootloader. No htc devices on sprint or tmobile have locked bootloaders clearly verizon stinks

    The Optiomus 3D has 4GB ram too.

    If you see through the marketing bullshit, you realize, its not byte, but bit, and 4 gigabits equals with 512 Mb. So nothing extra here unfortunately...

    • liamz

      Um what? Cite please.

    I just only hope the 4000mAh battery will do its job and the screen will make me forget those bulky 3D glasses. And the Random Acces Memory won't be by far 4GB. Best Regards!

  • Lee

    Htc Flyer is likely to be my upgrade to my Galaxy Tab.

    I'm not interested in Honeycomb, I think honeycomb is designed for 10 inch tablets and doesn't make sense on 7 inch, especially since the ui wastes a lot of space on fancy graphics.

    While it would be nice to have dual core, only some game apps are designed to take advantage of it, and while it has the potential to smoothen out normal apps from backgroud tasks, it will still choke if several apps/backgroud-tasks try to access ram and internal external memory at the same time, although the LG Optimus 3D dual core dual channel might help over come this.

    For playing video games I'd much rather play on something like the Optimus 3d or Xperia Play, although I also have an OnLive account which I would be able to use on the flyer, that is very unlikely to work over 3g.

    The stylus is the main reason I want the HTC Flyer. I take my Galaxy Tab into meetings and typing on a virtual keyboard sucks, I'd much rather write down my notes.

    That said I'd probably want to get a wifi only version of the flyer, I don't want to be tied down to a carrier, like I did with the stripped down Verizon Galaxy Tab.

  • TareX

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't the Qualcomm 8660 Snapdragon CPU a Cortex A8-based SoC?

    It looks like the Optimus 3D with OMAP4 will be the 3D phone to have, this H1 2011.

  • boriqua2000

    is the EVO3D going to be dualcore or not??
