Following closely in the footsteps of LG, HTC might very soon unveil its latest 3D Android smartphone — the EVO 3D in India. As reported by The Mobile Indian earlier, HTC devices usually come to India a couple of months after their international launch.
LG announced its first 3D device in India a couple of days ago, and since the 3D market is still very niche, HTC wouldn’t want to lose the initial customers.
HTC Evo 3D, as the name signifies, is a 3D smartphone based on Google’s Android Gingerbread 2.3 operating system, with Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon system on a chip — MSM 8660 — running at 1.2 GHz with an Adreno 220 graphics engine, 1 GB of RAM and 32 GB of onboard storage. In contrast with its sole competition in India — the LG Optimus 3D — Evo 3D definitely seems faster in terms of specifications.
The device features a 4.3 inch 3D display with native resolution of 540 x 960 pixels, which is slightly better than the screen of Optimus 3D at 480 x 800 pixels. Both phones have screens of the same size.
Evo 3D features two 5 megapixel cameras at the back, capable of capturing 3D visuals at 2 megapixel resolution and 720p 3D video at 30 frames per second. Apart from 3D video, the camera is capable of recording full 1080p high definition video at 24 frames per second along with 5 megapixel 2D still images.
The device is expected to be launched at the annual Qualcomm event that is scheduled to take place on 30 August in Delhi. Although there has been no official confirmation or news pertaining to the launch, all evidence points to it.
HTC Evo 3D is expected to be priced above Rs 35,000 in India.
