HTC Evo One gets last-minute look
Sprint's adaptation of the Evo One, has been given a last-minute leak through a press render. The shot obtained by Pocketnow shows a device that has clearly made some cosmetic changes, eliminating some of the curves and making it slightly taller than the reference version that AT&T will be carrying.
Apart from the needed switches to CDMA for voice and EVDO for 3G, the Evo One is rumored to be making up for its slightly bulkier design with the Evo line's signature kickstand as well as a very large 2,650mAh battery that could make it one of the longer-lasting Android phones on shelves. The 4.7-inch, 720p LCD, eight-megapixel back and front 1.3-megapixel cameras, and 16GB of space should carry forward.
Both AT&T and Sprint should drop the quad-core Tegra 3 for a still fast, dual-core 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 in return for getting much faster 4G LTE data. They share Android 4.0 and HTC's trimmed-down Sense 4.0 interface, although the Sprint shot shows its voicemail and a slightly more customized home screen.
HTC and Sprint will unveil the Evo One, or whatever its final name will be, at a special event on Wednesday. It may not reach stores until June 6, which could put it after the AT&T version.
