In a smartphone world starting to get crowded with powerful dual and quad-core processors, 720p HD displays and more it appears that Virgin Mobile is still a little behind the times. New details are confirming that the decent but slightly outdated HTC EVO 3D will be headed to Virgin Mobile soon, possibly this summer as the HTC EVO V 4G.
That name sure takes too long to say, maybe they can call it the HTC EVO V 4G Touch 2 Plum edition. In all seriousness the EVO 3D will be landing on Virgin Mobile and should be offered up in both the standard black, and the Best Buy “Plum” purple color we reported on last year when the phone was originally released.
The EVO 3D (EVO V 4G) comes with pretty top-end specs even though it’s starting to show its age. It’s one of the few glasses-free 3D phones that also can take 3D video and pictures with the dual 5 megapixel cameras around back. Under the hood you still have plenty of power with a Qualcomm 1.2 GHz dual-core S3 processor, 1GB of RAM, and plenty of storage. It’s currently on Android 2.3 Gingerbread but should get ICS eventually. The phone has a 4.3″ display with a 960 x 540 qHD (quarter high definition) display that is crisp and looks great, just isn’t HD like some of the newer phones.
No word on an official release date, details, or pricing was available but according to PocketNow the phone is coming soon for Virgin Mobile customers.
