Sprint and HTC Releases Evo 4G LTE

Sprint unveiled the HTC Evo 4G LTE on Wednesday. It would be the latest phone that supports Sprint’s high-speed network. The handset is a superfast smartphone that tries to set the bar up in multimedia user experience.

The Evo 4G LTE features a Qualcomm 1.5 GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 chipset, 4.7 inch display and runs on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. It will cost $199.99 with a two year contract with the carrier. It would be available on the market in this quarter and Sprint will begin taking in pre-orders on May 7.

It has an 8 megapixel camera that has the capability to take photos and video at the same time. It is also the first smartphone to incorporate the HD Voice technology, which is a combination of technology in phones that include dual microphones, network technology and decoders to produce clear calls. The technology decreases background sound to make the calls more clear.

Sprint announced that six cities will have 4G LTE by midyear. These are Atlanta, Baltimore, Dallas Houston, San Antonio, and Kansas City. The entire United States will have 4G LTE network by the end of 2013. Sprint has an existing 4G network built on WiMax mobile broadband technology.
