HTC EVO 4G LTE is built on Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich, integrated with HTC Sense 4. HTC EVO 4G LTE boasts features including a 4.7-inch HD display, an 80-degree viewing angle, HD voice capabilities, 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 2000mAh embedded battery and dual-cameras (8-megapixel rear-facing and 1.3-megapixel front-facing) with instant capture capability.
With the launch of HTC EVO 4G LTE, Sprint becomes the first U.S. carrier to announce plans for a U.S. HD Voice network beginning in late 2012 as part of Sprint's Network Vision program.
The HD Voice service will provide more natural-sounding and less fatiguing voice quality and should reduce troublesome background noises often found in a cafe or on the street.
HTC EVO 4G LTE is Sprint?s first device with HTC?s Authentic Sound experience integrating Beats Audio. HTC EVO 4G LTE incorporates Beats Audio across the entire phone experience, including playing music stored on the device, streaming from a favorite service, watching a movie or YouTube video, or playing the latest hot game. HTC Sync Manager software also lets users get their music on the device from their PC, and it works with current programs, including iTunes.
The HTC EVO 4G LTE also features on-screen photo and video buttons right next to each other. While shooting a video, the user can just tap the shutter button and it captures a still image of that exact moment. Still images can also be captured during video playback. The phone's camera has a super-fast start-up and auto-focus time. In addition, HTC ImageSense technology combines hardware and software advancements to the camera lens, sensor and software, including integration of a new custom HTC ImageChip, to take photos even in adverse conditions. The f/2.0 camera lens lets in 44 percent more light than the lenses used on most camera phones. The Smart Flash also adjusts the flash strength based on how far away the object is.
The phone will support a new high-speed fourth generation (4G) service Sprint is building into its network with a technology known as Long Term Evolution. Sprint is investing $7 billion on LTE, which is expecting to increase data speeds by about 10 times its older network.
Sprint plans to launch LTE services in its first markets around the middle of 2012.
