With Sprint set to release its 4G LTE network in the US soon, the carrier has added yet another handset, the HTC Evo 4G LTE, to its list of devices which will boast compatibility with its high-speed network that will become functional in six cities - Atlanta, Baltimore, Dallas, Houston, Kansas City and San Antonio- by mid-2012.
During the course of the launch event for the HTC Evo 4G LTE in New York City, Sprint CEO Dan Hesse described the new Evo as a "superfast" smartphone, capable of unleashing a multimedia experience of the "gold standard."
According to the information shared by Hesse, the HTC Evo 4G LTE will be the first handset to boast the so-called HD Voice technology, which essentially combines technology in phones including dual microphones and decoders, and delivers less stifled calls with the help of network technology.
The HTC Evo 4G LTE also features HTC's new Sense 4 user interface, which facilitates the use and navigation of the smartphone; and google Wallet, which makes use of the handset's Near Field Communications technology to enable users to purchase products with the swipe of the phone against a reader at a cash register.
The other specs of the Evo 4G LTE - which will cost $199.99 with a two-year Sprint contract, and will hit the markets this quarter, with pre-orders beginning May 7 - include a 4.7-inch display; Qualcomm's newest 1.5 GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor; and an 8-megapixel HG camera. The handset will run the latest Android 4.0 `Ice Cream Sandwich' version.
