Specifications and bunch of photos of Android powered HTC Pyramid have leaked again. This time the credit of this leak goes to guys at XDA-Developers, who have completely exposed this Smartphone’s hardware and software. From these leaked photos we can see that the HTC Pyramid features HTC’s aluminum uni-body and have resemblance to HTC EVO 3D as respect to its features except 3D. The photos further reveal that there is HTC Sense version 3.0 on-board and along with it there is an Android 2.3.2 Gingerbread for the operating system.
There are still no words on when this device will be out and what it will cost though Pocketnow claims that he has been tipped that this Android Smartphone will land on T-Mobile in the USA. However take a look at the leaked specifications and photos below and let us know what you think about this Smartphone by your comments in the comment box below.
HTC Pyramid Specifications
Android 2.3 Gingerbread operating system, a 1.2 GHz dual-core processor, 768MB of RAM, a huge 4.3-inch qHD display of 960×540 pixels, an 8 mega-pixel camera most probably capable of 1080p video capture plus a VGA front-facing camera and Wi-Fi b/g/n.
ORLANDO, Fla.-Sprint kicked off its stay here at CTIA 2011 by announcing the HTC Evo 3D. The handset continues the Android experience you’ve seen in previous members of the Evo family, but adds Android 2.3 Gingerbread and a 3D camera.
The slim candy bar design will be familiar to HTC fans. Its shape and size is very similar to the original Evo and a gorgeous 4.3-inch QHD display dominates the front real estate. The touch screen is wonderfully bright and responsive and the handset has a sturdy feel. In addition to Gingerbread, the Evo 3D runs HTC’s Sense UI, Leap (see all seven home screens by pinching your fingers), and Friend Stream (social media updates). And it’s all powered by a 1.2GHz dual-core processor.
Turn the handset around, however, and you’ll notice the biggest change from the first Evo. The Evo 3D has two 5-megapixel cameras for capturing the 3D video, with a flash sitting in between. The design is very similar to the LG Optimus 3D, which we saw at Mobile World Congress last month. When taking 2D still shots and videos you’ll use only one lens, but both kick in to record 3D content.
A toggle on the right side switches between 2D (1080p) and 3D (720p) recording. Next to it are a shutter control and a volume rocker. A second 1.3-megapixel camera sits on the front face, as do the usual navigation touch controls. Up top are a 3.5mm headset jack and power control, while around the corner is the Micro-USB charging and syncing port.
As with the Optimus 3D, you don’t need glasses to view 3D content. As we said after seeing LG’s device, the experience is not the same as what you’d expect from a 3D movie. The images float off the screen rather than poking you in the face. It’s subtle, but definitely noticeable and rather fun.
Other features include 4GB of internal memory, a 1730mAh battery, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, GPS, the usual assortment of Google apps, e-mail and messaging, and a music player.
The Evo 3D will be available this summer with Sprint’s other CTIA announcement, the Evo View tablet. Pricing for both devices is still to come.
As Sprint showed off the HTC EVO 3D Android smartphone, they featured a neat comparison showing why the EVO 3D is currently the fastest smartphone coming to market with 1.2GHz dual core Qualcomm Snapdragon processors. Let’s see how the fastest superphones stack up:
As suspected, Sprint announced the HTC EVO 3D, a glasses-free QHD 3D Android 2.3 Gingerbread smartphone. Sprint claims that it is America’s first "glasses free" device with a QHDS display. We know that it’s getting confusing because yesterday AT&T announced that it would offer the LG Thrill 4G, which is the first US smartphone with a 4.3-inch stereoscopic 3D touchsreen. The Sprint website refers to it as not just the next generation of EVO but as the next dimension in mobile phones. AT&T claims that the LG Thrill 4G will take customers into a "new dimension."
The HTC EVO 3D has a 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon dual-core processor and dual 5-megapixel cameras, which can be used to capture both conventional and 3D images and videos. Features include 1.3-megapixel front facing camera, 3G/4G mobile hotspots, Google Voice for Sprint,
4GB Internal memory/1GB RAM, microSD slot (supports up to 32GB memory card), Wi-Fi, Stereo Bluetooth, GPS, DLNA, HDMI port and 1730mAh Lithium-ion battery.
HTC EVO 3D will be the first 3D handset preloaded with the Blockbuster On Demand for viewing videos. Rentals range from $1.99 to $3.99 each, and purchases are $5.99 and up. Rentals will be available for viewing on one screen within 30 days of rental, with a 24-hour viewing period once the title is first played.
The news release gives examples of the HTC EVO 3D‘s ability to capture and playback video in 3D, such as 3D virtual tours of homes for sale, a video of Little League games for dads stuck at the office, 3D mapping of terrain for hikers, and the reliving of vacations.
With integrated 3D HD (720p) video capture, 4G speeds, and the latest version of the HTC Sense experience, HTC EVO 3D integrates social media and lets users seamlessly post video to YouTube or Facebook, or to share moments in real time over the Internet live, via Qik.
Its integrated DLNA (Digital Living Network Alliance) capability makes it fast and easy to share stored music, pictures and user-generated HD video wirelessly with other DLNA-certified home electronics, including HDTVs, monitors, digital cameras, printers and more. Using an HDMI cable (sold separately) makes it possible to also share user-created 3D-video content via a 3D TV.
Because the HTC EVO 3D has a much faster processor than the HTC EVO 4G, it may warrant an upgrade, depending on your data usage.
There have been many HTC smartphones in the news lately. The HTC ThunderBolt and HTC Inspire have been released and reviewed. Coming in the future are the Android HTC Pyramid and HTC Shooter. The HTC HD7S Windows Phone was announced yesterday.
If you’re an exhibitor at CTIA looking to keep a secret, you have to be on guard at all times. Blog Pocketnow has acquired images of Sprint collateral that provides hard specs for the yet-to-be-announced HTC EVO 3D and HTC EVO View 4G. The image tells us that the device will indeed be a 1.2GHz dual-core beast, complete with a 4.3-inch screen with 960 x 540 pixel resolution. The handset also boasts dual 5 megapixel cameras capable of capturing 3D video in 720p, and regular old 2D video in a full 1080p. The EVO 3D also appears to have a 1.3 megapixel front-facing camera, weigh in at 6 ounces, and will have its Android operating system smothered in HTC’s Sense UI. The EVO View 4G will have the same 1.5GHz single-core processor as the Flyer, a display with a 1024 x 600 pixel resolution, 5 megapixel rear-facing camera, 1.3 megapixel front-facing camera, and will weigh around 15 ounces. We’ll be live blogging Sprint’s keynote event, which starts tomorrow around 1:00 p.m. ET, where we presume these two HTC sets will become official.
It’s been a few days since Sprint sent out invitations to their press event at CTIA. While we certainly have our own ideas as to what Sprint will announce, an anonymous tipster has come forward, possibly revealing Sprint’s big announcement agenda.
The source claims that Sprint has three Android devices waiting to be unveiled at CTIA. Two phones and one tablet. The first phone will be the Nexus S which will be equipped with WiMax capabilities. As you may recall Sprint did have plans to launch the original Nexus One last year, but changed their mind since the handset wouldn’t offer anything unique over the T-Mobile and AT&T versions that were being sold by Google.
The second handset Sprint will unveil at CTIA with be the HTC EVO 3D. As the name implies, the HTC EVO 3D will feature 3D capabilities (though we’re not sure what those are at this moment) and we’re pretty sure it’ll support Sprint’s 4G WiMax network. We do not know the specs of the HTC EVO 3D, but the hope is that the handset will be similar to the rumored HTC Pyramid (dual-core 1.2 GHz Snapdragon processor [MSM8260] and a 4.3 inch qHD display) which should be heading to T-Mobile later this spring.
Since Verizon has the XOOM and T-Mobile has the G-Slate, Sprint has decided to offer up their own Android tablet: the HTC EVO View. The only detail we have right now is the tablet’s name, but we’re assuming that it will be pretty similar to the HTC Flyer which is running a 1.5 GHz Qualcomm processor, with a 7-inch display, Android 2.3, and HTC’s new Scribe technology.
While everything above may sound feasible, we’re still labeling it all as rumors until we can get some concrete evidence. But that doesn’t mean we’re not excited! If the report does turn out to be true, which of three devices will you be picking up?
