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. [Thanks to everyone who sent this in!]
recently had such awesome fun with that benchmarking system, we wish them only the best, but let's have a look at another option here. This is CF-Bench, a benchmarking tool that's got support for testing multiple cores on your Android device, allowing you to test both native and managed code - joyous day, let's see who gets the best!
initial review, and same goes for our sister site SlashGear and their review. Earlier in the week reports suggested the device was suffering from "death grip" style reception issues similar to the iPhone 4 problem. More information after the break.
HTC Sensation has made a second trip through the FCC, this time bearing 3G and 4G band compatibility with AT&T's network in the US. Filings for the smartphone were spotted in early May for the T-Mobile USA variant - which we reviewed last week - and now it looks like AT&T may be getting a model of its own. This particular model has support for GSM 850/1900 and WCMDA bands V and II, making it potentially compatible with AT&T's HSPA+ network (though not its new LTE network, of course). Otherwise we're assuming it's the same Sensation that we've seen before, so WiFi b/g/n, Bluetooth 3.0, a 4.3-inch qHD display, dual-core 1.2GHz Snapdragon processor and unibody metal chassis. There's no telling whether AT&T will indeed launch the Sensation - or, if it does, whether it will be called that or something else - but given the phone is HTC's flagship we wouldn't be surprised if they did. T-Mobile USA sales of the Sensation 4G will begin June 12. [via GottaBeMobile]
