Smartphone maker HTC has announced that the release of its first ever glasses-free 3D mobile phone will be delayed till September.
According to tech website SlashGear, the Taiwan-based company has revealed that the HTC Evo 3D, the smartphone which was originally going to be released in July, has been pushed back to a September release in the United Kingdom.
"We can confirm that the HTC EVO 3D will be available to UK customers through Carphone Warehouse from September 2011," a statement issued by HTC said. The company did not give any reason behind the two month delay as the handset was scheduled for the end of July.
This delay in the smartphone's launch has apparently caused the network carrier Vodafone to drop the handset from its list of upcoming mobile phones altogether. "Owing to the delayed launch of the device, we took the decision not to include the EVO 3D in our smartphone range," the company said in a statement to explain the move.
The HTC EVO 3D boasts a qHD stereoscopic display which is 4.3 inches. The phone has a five magapixel camera with 720p high definition video recording. It is powered by Android 2.3 Gingerbread and will come equipped with a 1.2GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor.
