In the midst of all the recent mobile hype and chaos of Motorola and Samsung spinning around us, it’s easy to forget that other important companies have products to announce and unveil as well. Case in point, Sprint has decided to unleash its newest mobile device, the HTC EVO Design 4G. We knew it would be coming, but we didn’t exactly know when. At last, the cat (erm…phone) is out of the bag.
The EVO Design 4G has a 4-inch qHD Super LED display with a resolution of 960 x 540 enclosed in an aluminum unibody shell. Hidden under beneath is a 1.2GHz single-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor. It also features a 5 megapixel rear camera capable of HD video and also has a 1.3 megapixel front-facing camera. You’ll also find a 1,520mAh battery that Sprint claims offers up to 6 hours of talk time. It’s all topped off with Android 2.3 Gingerbread coated with HTC’s Sense UI that we all know and love.
Overall, the EVO Design 4G looks very similiar to HTC’s Hero S that was released by U.S. Cellular not too long ago. It’s practically the same phone. However, the Sprint version has 4G WiMAX capabilities and can roam on GSM networks overseas. When users are not in a 4G zone, they can access Sprint’s 3G CDMA network.
The HTC EVO Design 4G will hit store shelves on October 23rd for just a penny shy of $100.
