HTC EVO 4G Mobile Phone by Sprint

A wireless phone that’s as fast and powerful as most people’s basic DSL and cable wired connections. Filled with so many features we don’t know where to begin. Like the fact that it works in 3G and 4G markets or the over 30,000 apps you’ve come to expect from an Android’-powered phone. And it’s only available on the first wireless 40 network from a national carrier. if you want to be one of the first to get your hands on one, you just have to sign up.

Hardware filling close to the characteristics HD2. Among the differences: increased memory, improved camera, the presence of the anterior chamber and increased battery capacity. A truly special apparatus makes a software platform: it is the first Android-smartphone with the screen size and support for 4G. New implemented based on the hardware platform Snapdragon QSD8650 (CDMA-version of the chipset QSD8250, used in HD2 and Nexus One) with a processor running with a clock frequency of 1 GHz. EVO 4G is equipped with a luxurious 4.3-inch screen with 480 x 800 pixels. Built-in memory (ROM) is 1 GB, which does not limit the user in the amount of installed programs, but through a decent amount of RAM (512 MB) to operate these programs will be fast.

Special mention deserves the built-in camera with 8 megapixel. The camera can shoot movies in HD-quality (720p) and is a really high-quality solution that is compatible with digital "soap holders’ entry level. In addition to the main chamber attached 1.3-megapixel camera on the front side of the device and intended for video calls.
Communication possibilities EVO 4G presented module Wi-Fi (standard 802.11b / g), support for Bluetooth, as well as the presence HDMI-out. The latter allows you to display an image with a communicator on the TV screen (but for this you must use a special adapter). In the appliance comes with microSD memory card 8 GB.
Communicator is running an operating system, Android 2.1 in conjunction with a modernized user interface HTC Sense.

The main feature is support for EVO 4G wireless data networks of the fourth generation 4G (technology EV-DO Rev. A and WiMAX). It calls are made through the communication module CDMA, and data transmission using EV-DO or WiMAX. The device can operate in a mode wireless access point with support for up to eight local connections to Wi-Fi. As for first impressions, almost all experts note the high quality camera (for Smartphone), excellent screen, and as always friendly user interface Sense. A little disappointed sensory function keys, to use that is not too convenient, but the hardware buttons ( "swinging" the volume and power button) made a very high quality. ]

Its main features:

  • TFT Capacitive Touch Screen size 4.3 inches ( 10.9 cm ) Of resolution 800 x 480 pixels (WVGA)
  • Processor Qualcomm MSM 8650 Snapdragon clocked at 1 GHz
  • Digital Camera 8 Mega pixels with autofocus, dual LED flash and video recording in D1 HD (1280 x 720 pixels)
  • CDMA and EV-DO Rev. Has
  • Integrated GPS receiver
  • 1 GB of ROM
  • 512 MB RAM

  • Wi-Fi 802.11 b / g
  • MicroSD up to 32GB
  • Accelerometer
  • Compass (electronic compass)
  • Light sensor
  • Proximity

  • OS Google Android 2.1 (Lightning) and interface HTC Sense

On the back cover of devices are retractable chrome leg (stand). After removing the back cover as many users are surprised by a bright red color scheme "innards" of the communicator. The buttons on-screen keyboard are large enough, good size screen do not restrict developers in choosing their size. Testing speed Internet connection when the device in WiMAX networks, have not yet done, but Sprint calls the average speed of 3.6 Mbps.  Yesterday we stayed impressed to have the first news of the HTC EVO 4G, a giant who at first arouses our attention, but after further analysis we found that when compared to recent HTCs, the EVO 4G is basically a vitamin product with some interesting novelty. On one hand we find Android 2.1, the interface and architecture Sense HTC Qualcomm 1GHz Snapdragon, like the Nexus or Desire.

The multimedia section is where you begin to highlight the EVO, it features a 4.3 inch screen but which nevertheless seems to have AMOLED technology, an 8 megapixel camera with autofocus and video capture HD, plus another 1.3 front camera megapixels and HDMI connection. Another remarkable aspect is that it can act as a WiFi hotspot to share the connection with up to eight devices. With these benefits will be interesting to know how it behaves its 1500 mAh battery.

By the end we left the main novelty of the EVO 4G is none other than WiMAX connectivity, the first Android in having this functionality, which will make the terminal comes in summer and exclusively with the American operator Sprint, which has been working some time to adapt their network to this technology. Will remains whether European version, adapted to our 4G slowly taking off, but until that happens sure the EVO 4G will have evolved considerably.

The HTC Supersonic trust a part of the rumor Android news several weeks ago, but finally it is under the name HTC Evo 4G will come a monster under HTC Android. The HTC Evo 4G is present at CTIA Wireless and he is clearly terminal Android’s most advanced to date. As expected, Sprint has unveiled the HTC smartphone compatible EVO 4G WiMAX, which will be the first mobile device available on its WiMAX network in the United States, called Clearwire, and the first WiMAX smartphone available in the United States. It once again Taiwan’s HTC which group is responsible for its design. The HTC EVO 4G is WiMAX smartphone his second after a first model unveiled in late 2008 for the Russian operator Yota.

While the first commercial LTE networks begin to be deployed and that the competitor Verizon Wireless will soon launch his own, Sprint needed an element of seduction to its WiMAX network. The arrival of a smartphone WiMAX is even more striking that LTE networks will have to wait until 2012 before starting to have really capable mobile phones, which keeps the two years in advance of maturity of WiMAX and reinforce Sprint Early.This model, presented by the U.S. operator Sprint as the "Evo" will run in Android 2.1, and will have a 4.3 inch screen, a 1GHz Snapdragon processor, 1 GB of internal memory, d ‘ a DSLR 8 megapixel camera with flash and an HDMI output.  Another feature, not least, the HTC Evo is the first mobile WiMax. The network also called "4G" is not yet developed in France, the operator Free, however, possesses a license without yet exploit.

Android 2.1 Lightning :

As we also mentioned, it is the system Android 2.1 Lightning team that the smartphone HTC EVO 4G, dressed in the new overlay HTC Sense while the camera takes advantage of Qualcomm Snapdragon processor QSD8650 1 GHz, with 512 MB of RAM and 1 GB of ROM, plus a port for memory cards microSD.
It will be possible to customize the terminal through the mobile applications available on the Android Market and use the voice recognition technology to compose text messages and emails by dictating.

  • The smartphone has dual compatibility CDMA2000 EV DO / WiMAX, which is also a first, with the promise of reaching theoretical speeds of 10 Mbps descendants (which should be reflected in rates average 3 to 4 Mbps) and amounts of 1 Mbps.
  • HTC and Sprint did not skimp on features of the device: touch-capacitive multitouch display diagonal of 4.3 "800 x 480 pixels, 8 megapixel with NPC can capture video in 720p, WiFi 802.11 b / g Bluetooth 2.1, A-GPS with electronic compass, FM radio, etc
  • The HTC EVO 4G may use Google mobile services Sprint has several pre-installed, including Sprint Navigation for GPS navigation and Sprint TV. (A crutch on the back let’s put it on a table). The smartphone will be available during the summer of 2010.

Meanwhile, Sprint has announced its intention to extend its WiMAX network in 27 new regions in the United States, expanding its presence and widening the gap with the intention of deploying its competitor Verizon. The final name of the device is HTC EVO 4G, and uses the Qualcomm Snapdragon platform hardware (QSD8650) at 1GHz, which is becoming so usual (Nexus One, HTC Desire, Xperia X10, etc). Where to start noticing changes is on the screen, with a significant 4.3 inches and a resolution of 800 x 480 pixels. Another enhanced, or at least on paper is the camera sensor with 8 megapixels (with Flash), and the ability to record movies in high definition, and logically to reproduce, which along with the HDMI output will delight who wants to use it as portable. A video example of the functioning of the HDMI output:

More Information :

The spotlight is again fixed on the third U.S. operator Sprint, which, against all odds, put an end to rumors of a terminal response so far code-named HTC Supersonic. The precursor to WiMax, which already sells modems and routers that standard, actually announced its partnership with the Taiwanese manufacturer HTC Evo 4G, their first fourth-generation terminal.

Wimax is to recall a new standard for data transmission by radio waves, which supplants the current 3G in terms of both speed and reach. A single relay can actually cover the equivalent of a city while offering speeds tenfold. As such, this standard is already used by providers of Internet access worldwide.The new smartphone has nice look at HTC HD2, which also includes most of the sheet, it works for him as Android, version 2.1 codenamed Lightning in this case, not Windows Mobile although it finds the wrapper unified HTC Sense. It consists of hand like it around a multi-touch screen with a diagonal WVGA not less than 4.3 inches. He embarked in turn Qualcomm Snapdragon processor 1 GHz, 512 MB RAM, 1 GB of ROM and a microSD slot supporting memory cards up to 32GB.

Connection Wimax is not the only contribution of this new model. The terminal has actually some other refinements, such as a photo sensor that increases from 5 to 8 million pixels and filmed in high definition  720p,  such as the emergence of a sensor opening the front door to videoconferencing, or the addition of an HDMI output. A function can finally turn his mobile phone as an access point, allowing 8 devices to access the WiMAX network through a traditional Wi-Fi connectivity.


Large capacitive touch screen TFT LCD Multi-Touch 4.3 inch for a resolution of 480 × 800px, QSD8650 Snapdragon processor clocked at 1GHz, 1GB of internal memory, 512MB RAM, APN 8mpx with auto-focus and dual LED flash that supports saving video in HD 720p, APN 1.3Mpx Front, Mini-USB port, HDMI output, MicroSD slot (8GB card included), 3.5mm headphone jack, Bluetooth 2.0, WiFi 802.11b / g (WiFi router function with up to 8 devices ), GPS, digital compass, etc … all running Android Interface 2.1 with SENSE but what you ask for.

Also surprising that the front camera is 1.3 megapixel, bearing in mind that these types of cameras are content with VGA resolution. Within memory, we find 1GB of internal storage, and 8GB microSD card in the form. RAM is 512MB. Within we have WiFi connectivity, Bluetooth, and WiMAX cited EV-DO Rev. A. What can we do about it? The idea is that while the data connection can pull the 4G network, EV-DO phone can be used for both.

Another important detail is that it can be used as a WiFi hotspot, sharing their connectivity with up to eight devices. Naturally also has a GPS receiver. Said it has ended the HTC interface Sense, Flash support, and back of the phone has a stand to let him stand as seen in the images. The HTC EVO 4G appear in summer in the U.S., and it is difficult to reach other markets that do not work with the WiMAX network.The HTC EVO (Supersonic) just introduced. This is one of the first android phones compatible 4G (EV-DO / WiMAX) with HDMI output and encoding / decoding at 720p, a 4.3 inch screen, the Snapdragon 1 GHz, 1 GB of RAM, a camera 8 megapixels in the back and 1.3-megapixel front to make video-conference through Qik, Android Interface 2.1 with HTC Sense, can be used as hotspot. Scheduled time for Sprint (USA) at least not anytime soon or what specific model (known as 3G CDMA network / EV-DO not compatible with the French network). By cons fairly similar models could very well offer .

HD2 vs HTC HTC EVO 4G : For the screen size, and appearance of the device many have decided to place a replacement for the HTC tagline HD2, a significant error considering that just appeared in the U.S. But for those who like comparisons, here I leave a gallery where you can see how the new model is a bit smaller, in addition to hardware improvements: 4G, HDMI, 8 megapixels, support, or the design itself. The photos are of decent quality and allow us to see better than typical phone renders.
