By Alan Ng - Mar 23, 2011

We told you yesterday that the HTC EVO 3D was coming after specs had been revealed prior to it’s announcement at CTIA 2011, and now we can confirm that Sprint has just unveiled the glasses-free 3D device, and it will be exclusive to their network as well.

For those who don’t know yet, the HTC EVO 3D features a 4.3-inch QHD 3D Display as well as dual 5 megapixel cameras that can shoot 3D images and video. It’s not just the 3D features that make this handset stand out though, as it also comes with the latest hardware tech as well, so it’s a phone definitely worth considering.

It also packs a 1.2Ghz dual-core processor, Android 2.3 Gingerbread, 3G and 4G mobile hotspot support via WiMAX, a 1.3 megapixel front camera, 1GB of RAM and Google Voice – those are some of the highlights on top of the standard connectivity options you’ll get on the handset.

According to Sprint’s press release, the HTC EVO 4G will release sometime this Summer, we don’t have a solid date for you yet, but we’ll be sure to let you know when we do. You can view a great picture of the device below, taken from CTIA 2011. You’ll can view a full gallery over at Engadget here if you want to see more pictures.

    I got the scoop! June 3, 2011…and Sprint is NOT taking pre-orders. However if you are a Sprint Primer Customer…you will be able to pre-order "online". Primer customers will be getting an email from Sprint in May 2011.

    Only major downgrade is from the 8mp camera on current evo. But may be worth drop for 3d.

    I'm glad they're releasing the Evo3D this summer. That will create pressure for Apple to release their iphone 5 this summer too. I think it'll be a nice phone, but as much as I wanted to prefer the android based Evo 4G to the iphone 4, it just wasn't as good overall. Iphone4 beat it on display sharpness (handily), better camera picture quality, much better battery life, extra mic for noise canceling when using videochat, and facetime actually works, plus a much slicker and smoother UI. Not to say the EVO4G didn't beat it on a few other areas (voice activation/dictation, wifi hotspot capable, user replaceable battery, expandable storage memory) it really lost points on terrible video chat capability (lack of extra noise cancelling mic), much lower battery life, lower screen resolution, and choppier UI. That plus the iphone 4 points made above just wasn't enough to earn my business.

    I'll be sure to check out the Evo3D (and Atrix 4G) before checking out the iphone5 but I suspect apple will have the better product yet again.

    I need that phone when is it coming out

  • Damian

    A 1.3 megapixal front camera. that sucks. That is a downgrade from the evo.

    • ricardo

      Wow what a retard…you may want to revisit the Evo's specs

    • Guest

      Actually the current evo has the same megapixel front facing camera and one 8mp on the back. The 3D evo will have the same megaqpixel secondary camera and dual 5mp rear cameras.

    I will buy it when it come's out

    I am in love
