One of the best Android phones available on the market, the HTC EVO 3D is going to have a successor, hopefully by the end of the year.
Rumors about an HTC EVO 2 have come and gone since the beginning of the year, but no information about the phone's specifications has emerged.
However, it appears that the EVO 2 has just been confirmed by an official press release issued by video game developer Rockstar Games commemorating 10 years since Grand Theft Auto III was launched on the market.
In this regard, the company announced the mobile version of the game, which will be available this fall on a handful of devices, including Droid X2, HTC Evo 2
, LG Optimus 2X, Motorola Atrix, and Samsung Galaxy S II.
Obviously, no technical info about the EVO 2 has been revealed, but the fact remains that the smartphone is indeed in the works.
Speculating on the matter, the guys over at Tech God
claim that the HTC EVO 2 is slated for a December 2011 release.
Among the highlights of the upcoming EVO 2 there's 32GB of internal memory, a microSD card slot for memory expansion (up to 64GB), a Qualcomm 2.5GHz processor (not sure if dual-core), a 10-megapixel camera, and secondary front-facing camera for video calls.
In addition, the EVO 2 would have the ability to sync wireless with iTunes and the capability to print from the phone via Wi-Fi connection.
Although the EVO 3D
is currently exclusive at Sprint, HTC EVO 2 may be launched with another carrier, possibly Verizon or AT&T.
The reason behind HTC's decision to drop Sprint over other major carriers is the fact that the Taiwanese handset manufacturer wants a larger market for its HTC EVO 3D successor.
