Vodafone First To List HTC EVO 3D Superphone Online

It doesn't come as a surprise that Vodafone was the first to put up a holding page for the HTC EVO 3D smartphone, as it was also one of the first to publicly announce that it would sell the previous HTC superphone, the Sensation.

Vodafone (opens in new tab) hasn't said yet when the smartphone will be available, offering only the option to register for future updates. The main selling point of the EVO 3D is its ability to display 3D without the need of glasses, something that the LG Optimus 3D introduced at the beginning of the year.

The rest of the specifications are almost identical to the HTC Sensation. You get the same Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8660 SoC clocked at 1.2GHz, 1GB RAM, 4GB onboard storage (which can be boosted to 36GB using an optional 32GB microSD card) and two rear five megapixel cameras to capture 3D footage.

Sadly, there's only one front facing camera rather than two which means that you won't be able to do 3D video conferencing unless you use the rear cameras.

The other features worth mentioning include Android 2.3.3 with HTC's Sense user interface, support for HDMI, Wi-Fi, BT 3.0 and that 4.3-inch qHD capacitive touchscreen.

Expect it to retail for around £500 when it goes on sale; the HTC Sensation, in comparison, is currently available for around £450.
