HTC 3D Super-Smartphone Could Come to Sprint

By Sindre Lia, Tuesday 1 February 2011
 
Sprint and HTC could be preparing to announce a 4G-enabled 3D super-smartphone at a press event next week.

It's a new year, but most importantly, it's a new year with opportunities for component shortages. Sprint's HTC EVO 4G became an instant hit last year. Next week, Sprint will announce another "industry first", and we guess it's safe to expect Sprint and HTC to reveal the next step in the smartphone evolution: an "EVO 4G" with a 3D display that aims to take gaming and video playback on the go to the next level.

HTC is eager to succeed with 3D smartphones, and we guess Sprint and HTC's EVO line would be the perfect place to start. According to 3DRadar, a leak coming out of HTC headquarters late last year hinted at plans to release a new super-smartphone by the end of 2011 that would feature a 3D display. HTC is also known to be working on emerging 3D display and imaging technologies at the company's R&D center in North Carolina.

HTC will likely use NVIDIA's upcoming AP25 Tegra 2 3D chipset (goes into production this quarter) for the upcoming 3D super-smartphone. The company is also currently building a tablet to compete with the Motorola XOOM. According to Digitimes, the HTC tablet will cost $780, and should be powered by the T20 Tegra 2 chipset which went into production last fall. Other specs include a multi-touch panel with a resolution of 1280 by 720 pixels, a 32GB SSD and 2GB of memory. The tablet is expected to run the upcoming Android 3.0.

Of course, there's always the chance that Sprint may also be planning to offer the new HTC tablet, and that it could possibly be powered by the upcoming T25 Tegra 2 3D chipset, but we think it's what you just read above that will happen. Will the next EVO suffer from component shortages? Quite possibly, but that's just an inevitable factor when dealing with bleeding-edge smartphones.

LG is also reportedly planning to release a smartphone with 3D technology this year, as a tipster has sent some information and an image regarding an Optimus 3D to Phandroid. The image doesn't tell much, but check out the video demonstration of Sharp's upcoming 3D smartphone below to get a better idea of what 3D smartphones are all about - let the hype begin!
