HTC is rumored developing its first 3D smartphone and will launch it at CTIA this year. This is the extension of HTC EVO 4G and is named HTC EVO 3D.
If the rumour is true, HTC EVO 3D will become a big competitor to LG Optimus 3D. It will have auto-stereoscopic 3D, that means we don’t need to use glasses to enjoy 3D on it.
The EVO 3D will feature a 4.3-inch touchscreen display supporting qHD (960×540) pixel resolution, 1.2Ghz Qualcomm Snapdragon family processor with 1GB RAM and 4GB ROM for storage, powerful enough to playback and record 3D videos. Besides, EVO 3D also includes dual rear 5-megapixel cameras with dedicated camera button, a 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera and a 1730mAh battery. By default it will run Android 2.3 Gingerbread with HTC Sense UI. HDMI port will be an additional feature to display the 1080p HD videos and 720p HD 3D videos on larger screens.
While we are waiting for its release, we can expect there will be more 3D content for this device so that we can take advantage of the 3D-capable display. Last year was the year of smartphone and 2011 will be the year of 3D smartphone.
