HTC EVO 3D to be rebranded EVO V 4G, land on Virgin Mobile?

Htc-evo-v-4g

The leaks keep on coming in: this time, we have reliable information that the HTC EVO 3D – which is almost a year old and nearing the end of its life cycle on Sprint – is going to be released on the Sprint prepaid MVNO Virgin Mobile.

It will supposedly be rebranded as the HTC EVO V 4G and come with all of the EVO 3D's current features, including the glasses-free 3D display, 3D photo and video capture with the dual 5MP back cameras, 4G hotspot capabilities, and a 1.2GHz dual-core processor that can still hold its own among many more current smartphones. It's unclear whether or not this version will keep the current EVO 3D's WiMAX connectivity, or whether Sprint will share its infant LTE network with its prepaid division.

There are also rumors that the HTC One V will make an appearance on Virgin Mobile, and it does seem a bit odd that Virgin will carry two smartphones made by the same manufacturer with such similar names. But in any case, if this proves to be true, Virgin Mobile will certainly have quite a line-up of powerful HTC phones.
