We reported yesterday on the first press photo of HTC EVO One, Sprint’s own version of the HTC One X, which is about to hit shelves globally this week.However, it appears that the first live photos of the smartphone have leaked as well, along with some impressions on its overall performance.
The folks over at An.Droid-Life got the chance to take the HTC EVO One for a spin and have given us their opinion on the phone’s design, software and hardware configuration.
Firstly, as seen in the pictures, the smartphone comes with a small kickstand on the back and bears Sprint’s logo on the battery covers.
Design-wise, it looks pretty much similar to the HTC One X. The phone is rather big, but very thin at only 8.9mm.
Let’s not forget that the HTC EVO One comes with a stunning 4.7-inch Super IPS LCD2 capacitive touchscreen that supports HD (720 x 1280 pixels) resolution and features Corning Gorilla Glass coating for extra protection of the display while on the go.
The smartphone is powered by Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system and features HTC’s Sense 4.0 UI on to.
Unfortunately, An.Droid-Life claims that the new UI is almost unchanged, which might be boring for those who have already owned an HTC device that runs the company’s proprietary user interface.
On the positive side, it appears that the phone’s 8-megapixel rear camera with autofocus and LED flash is absolutely amazing. According to An.Droid-Life this might be one of the best cameras on a mobile device.
Last but not least, HTC EVO One comes with full LTE support, 1GB of RAM and 16GB of internal memory (no microSD card slot included).
According to the latest hearsay, HTC EVO One is expected to be announced today or within the next few days, but rumor has it that it will hit shelves only in June.
