Good news for the battery-hurting EVO 4G users - the next update might be able to fix some issues that were causing excessive battery drain, among other things.

Here is a quick 3-point update, rumored to arrive on June 28th:

  • Improvements to Wi-Fi performance
  • Exchange Active Sync improvements which include a fix to issue including new account set up, PIN policy usage, and Exchange Server 2010 Calendar Sync
  • Addresses Social Networking Sync issue with Facebook application which can improve battery performance

The rumor comes from one of BGR's Sprint connections and is unconfirmed at the moment, but we will certainly welcome it.

Whether this update will bring 802.11n capabilities, which were recently unlocked on the EVO by changing just a few lines of code, is unknown, but we can certainly hope it's an easy enough change for HTC to tack it on.

We will post more info when it comes in.
