The EVO 4G + Is the EVO you wanted without that pesky 3D features

 

The original HTC EVO 4G is just over a year old and has received an epic 3D update that is getting mixed results from reviewers across the internet. Most early adapters are brought toward the light due to its seemingly gimmicky 3D technology. But would you opt for an HTC EVO 3D sans the 3D but keeps the high end specs? Are you willing to move to Korea? The EVO 4G+ is the HTC EVO 3D without the 3D but keeps all the impressive specs.

The HTC EVO 4G+ is being called many things at the moment. This new HTC devices is being called everything From a WiMax compatible HTC Sensation to the HTC EVO 3D that should have been and obviously for good reason. The handset has been spotted in Korea and now has an official page on HTC Korean website. But the big question is, will this HTC EVO 4G+ make it to Sprint’s shelves. Currently with its Korean bound WiBro 4G settings (yes that’s its name) it is unlikely. However the EVO branding makes this possible, at least in my mind’s eye. The handset is literally the EVO 3D. The size and shape are the same the only noticeable differences are its camera housing, which gets the switch from two 5 mega pixel cameras to one 8 mega pixel cameras. Maybe this one actually can shoot video in 1080p (update* It can, according the specs, however the specs on the 3D said the same). Other noticeable differences would be the camera button on the side of the device, while it is still present; its toggle mode moves your lens from video to single shot. The official specs of the HTC EVO 4G+ are now official. It uses a 4.3 inch qHD screen that sports a 540X960 pixel resolution, a 1.2 GHz dual core processor, 1 GB of RAM, 1GB on board storage which is expandable via the micro SD card. The device is running Android, assumingly version 3.0 as well as the latest’s iteration of HTC Sense. All the other standards are also neatly packed into the EVO 4G+, including Bluetooth 3.0, Wi-Fi, GPS and all the other bells and whistles you have come to expect from a super phone of the day.

 

So the update to my beloved EVO 4G gets a non 3D version, just as I asked the phone gods. Lose the 3D improve the camera, keep the hardware button and make it available… in Korea? Ok I didn’t ask for that last part, but I guess you can’t always get what you want. Let us know what you think of the new HTC EVO 4G+ and if it will be making its way to Sprint’s network.
