Since last week we’ve been eagerly awaiting news of two smartphones ready to be launched on Sprint, the Google-powered Nexus S and HTC’s once-Shooter, now EVO 3D. Sprint’s come through already with confirmation of its WiMAX-capable Nexus S, leaving us anxious to hear what’s in store for the EVO 3D. While we wait for an announcement to be made at CTIA, the phone’s certification from the Wi-Fi Alliance has arrived, at least giving us some additional proof of the models existence, beyond the GLBenchmark figures we came across earlier.
Going by model number PG86100, the HTC EVO 3D received certification for 802.11 a, b, and n communications. The 802.11 n performance was only evaluated on the 2.4GHz band, and not the additional 5.0GHz band the standard supports.
The EVO 3D is rumored to, as its name would suggest, feature a no-glasses-required 3D display, similar to that found on the LG Optimus 3D / Thrill 4G. This screen, though, should come with an even higher resolution, capable of qHD 960 x 450 graphics. These tipped specs claim the EVO 3D will have a 1.2GHz dual-core Snapdragon under its hood, and may feature a gigabyte of RAM. Like the Optimus, we also expect the EVO 3D to have dual five-megapixel cameras for creating your own 3D content.
Look for Sprint to make its official HTC EVO 3D announcement at CTIA this week.
