As was expected, Sprint officially unveiled the HTC EVO 3D during its press conference at the CTIA tradeshow in Orlando Tuesday. The EVO 3D is an Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) smartphone with a 4.3-inch qHD 960 x 450-pixel autostereoscopic 3D display. Under its hood, the smartphone is powered by a 1.2GHz dual-core Qualcomm 8660 processor and it packs 1GB of RAM, a 1730 mAh battery and 4GB of internal storage that can be expanded to a total of 40GB using a microSD card. HTC also added a dedicated camera button, a feature we’ve long wished for, and it offers dual 5-megapixel rear cameras for shooting 3D video or 720p HD video. There’s also a 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera for Qik video chat. An external HDMI-out port will allow users to display 1080p video or 720p 3D content on an HDTV. At launch, the EVO 3D will sport Blockbuster 3D and YouTube 3D apps for viewing 3D content on its screen, which does not require 3D glasses. Pricing details are not yet available but the HTC EVO 3D will launch this summer. Hit the jump for the full press release.
AT&T just announced that it is soon adding two new high-end smartphones to its portfolio: the LG Thrill 4G and the HTC HD7S. The Thrill 4G is the first smartphone to launch in the United States with a 4.3-inch stereoscope 3D display that doesn’t require special glasses to view. It has a beefy hardware spec sheet, too, including a 1GHz dual-core processor, 8GB of storage, microSDHC support and a 5-megapixel stereoscopic camera capable of recording 3D and HD video. The Thrill 4G runs Android 2.2 (Froyo) and not the newer Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) operating system, and there’s no word on when it might be updated. AT&T says the Thrill will launch “in the coming months.” Hit the jump for details on the HD7S and for the press release. More →
