Good and EVO

First press shot appears of HTC EVO Design 4G

EVO-Design-4G Well, what do we have here? Why, it's the HTC EVO Design 4G, of course! In fact, it looks like the newest member of the Sprint EVO family just had an official press shot leaked, even though Sprint and HTC haven't made any official announcements regarding this device or its release date.

We first told you last August about the possibility of a new EVO coming to Sprint, and this was later supported by an accidental leak at Gameloft.

And no, this isn't the HTC EVO 4G+, about which Sprint has been completely silent. But it still seems fairly respectable as far as mid-range Android phones go (and a heck of a lot better than the EVO Shift 4G).

Just in case you need a refresher, the EVO Design 4G will have a 1.2GHz single-core Snapdragon processor, a 4-inch qHD display, dual cameras (5MP rear and 1.3MP front), 720p video recording, Android 2.3.3, 768MB RAM, WiFi n, and the Sprint WiMAX flavor of 4G. Nothing to write home about, but a huge improvement over the EVO Shift.

    Evo Light would be a more appropriate name.

  • I think the EVO 3D is the original EVO 4G’s heir. And I think this one is intended to replace the EVO Shift – I wouldn’t be surprised if we hear about the Shift’s EOL pretty soon, given the EVO 4G is just about done.

    With those great specs, why only 1gb internal storage?
    The Samsung Galaxy Epic Touch 4G has 16gb.
    The Evo 3D has 4gb, but only 1gb available after its proprietary usages.
    And of course the Evo 4G has 1gb, with about 450mb? available after proprietary usages.

  • I am not sure what’s wrong with these people who are commenting here EITHER SUPPORT THE EVO BRAND OR DON’T sprint and htc know exactly what they are doing. The current KING of the evo family of devices is the EVO 3D spec wise it is definitely tops in the industry and the added 3D feature is only a plus. The EVO 3D PIMP SLAPS the EVO 4G plain and simple and I owned the evo 4g till June 24th 2011 so I definitely know which evo rules in this family and definitely one of the best android devices on the market. 2012 EVO BRAND will floor everyone when introduced at CTIA in May 2012 think of this… 4.7 to 5.0 inch screen, 2.0Ghz processor, and 1.5gb of ram and 10megipixel camera remember these specs because they will be seen with ice cream as well. This will be the best quadcore device on the market in 2012… Right this EVO DESIGN 4G is a good additional member to the evo brand even being singlecore it tops the current Droid X2 on Verizon in my book.
