A look around the HTC EVO 3D

Evo-3d-back

Since the HTC EVO 3D press image set doesn't include shots of the phone from any of its sides, I went through Engadget's hands-on gallery and pulled out the relevant pics so we could see where all the ports, buttons, switches, and other stuff are.

I also updated the EVO 4G vs EVO 3D chart after seeing and reading that HDMI-out on the EVO 3D is via micro USB and DLNA; there's no dedicated HDMI port (Type D or otherwise). Interesting.

My predictions on port/button placement based on last night's leaked image were mostly wrong, as the left side of the EVO 3D houses the micro USB port (weird) and the power button is indeed on the top. The 3.5mm headphone jack is there as well, so there'll be no brain-retraining necessary since we're already accustomed to that layout on the top of the EVO 4G.

Evo-3d-bottom

I assume that's the mic and speaker on the bottom, though neither looks quite right to me. Any other guesses are welcome in the comments.

On the right are the volume buttons, a 2D/3D switch for use with the cameras, and a dedicated camera button. And speaking of the cameras, the lenses look like they're recessed by the red ring (well, it looks more like a racetrack now), which bodes well for the protection against scratches that the EVO 4G doesn't have.
