HTC Launches EVO 4G LTE On Sprint

After the LG Viper 4G LTE, Sprint has announced the arrival of the EVO 4G LTE which is the first LTE phone from HTC to carry the EVO brand.

The phone is not the HTC One X (or even a variant) that many were expecting. The phone is thinner than previous HTC phones and possibly the thinnest LTE handset yet

It comes with a massive 4.7-inch 1,280 by 720 pixels super LCD display, is powered by a dual core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor clocked at 1.5GHz (the MDM8960).

In comparison, the One X used the Nvidia Tegra 3, a quad core monster with the same clock speed.

There's also a super fast eight megapixel camera featuring ImageSense and a f/2.0 lens plus concurrent video/still capture functionality, a front facing 1.3-megapixel camera, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, with Sense 4.0 UI, Beats Audio software, 1GB RAM, 16GB onboard storage, a microSD card slot, a 2000mAh battery, WiFi, NFC and support for HD Voice.

The phone will go on sale from the 7th of March in the US for $199.99 with a two year contract. No official release date have been confirmed yet and HTC hasn't said whether it will go on sale outside the US.
