HTC EVO 4G+ packs WiMAX into Sensation

HTC has quietly launched the HTC EVO 4G+, a new 4.3-inch qHD dual-core Android smartphone that's basically the company's latest Sensation variant. While ostensibly a WiBro Android smartphone for the Korean market, there's a fair chance that the EVO 4G+ could get a US launch on WiMAX networks.

Like the Sensation, there's a dual-core 1.2GHz processor, 1GB of internal storage and an 8-megapixel main camera with autofocus and a dual-LED flash, capable of recording 1080p HD video. Up front is a 1.3-megapixel camera, and there's MHL HDMI support for the USB 2.0 connection. HTC also throws in GPS, Bluetooth 3.0, a 3.5mm headphone jack and a microSD card slot.

Connectivity includes both HSPA/WCDMA and WiMAX (WiBro) support, along with quadband GSM/EDGE. There's HTC's Sense UI on top of Android, complete with HTC Watch for renting or purchasing video content, DLNA wireless streaming, stereo speakers and more. No word on when it will launch in Korea, nor indeed when it might make it to North America.

    I have to admit, I am a little confused at the point of this device. It’s essentially an Evo 3D without the 3D and since the 3D feature is an option you can switch on and off…. why not just get the Evo 3D (which is available right now) and not use the 3D part? Or use it, since you have it.

    Or am I missing something this device has that neither the Evo or the Evo 3D have?

      Why pay for something you don’t want. Just like EVO 4G and EVO 4G Shift.
