HTC EVO 3D release date expected to be June 4th
The June 4th launch date, which falls on a Saturday, is “rough,” so it could be pushed a couple of days, but when a pre-order is made, it “guarantees” a phone to the customer. Unfortunately, there’s still no word on pricing on this 3D heavyweight, but the Shack expects to offer the best deal out there. A smart team is to also call back “every wireless contact,” so you could expect a surprise phone call detailing you the wonders of the handset.
UPDATE: RadioShack's ads for that period however quickly counter the June 4th date, as the EVO 3D does not appear in them and it sounds very unlikely that the handset is launched without any ads. But that's why it's "rough" release date after all. Hopefully, it doesn't take too long after June 4th for the handset to hit shelves.
But even now we can tell you all about the HTC EVO 3D, which was launched back at CTIA 2011: a 4.3” display with qHD resolution and a parallax barrier for the 3D effect are part of the show, but a dual-core 1.2GHz 3rd-gen Snapdragon chip and a dual 5 megapixel camera setup also contribute to the appealing package. Are you planning on getting the EVO 3D? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments below.

YES!!! I have been waiting for a release date forever now. I preordered it on Best Buy, & I just can't wait. 2 weeks & one day can't get here quick enough! I love my HTC Evo 4G but I just want my dual core 1.2 GHz beast of a phone YESTERDAY! I can't wait to surf the web on that bad boy, on 4G & on Wi-Fi. Thank you HTC & Sprint. I am so stoked!!! Let's just hope this release date pans out!

Yea it serves me right to get exited like I did. Let’s see if they still release it around the June 4th date. Damn this sucks, let's hope they just release a new ad just for the HTC Evo 3D only! Damn what a letdown! Lets hope for the best! :-(

"Update: And we're already being told it's not going to be June 4, as it's not in Radio Shack's ads for that period. Hey, it's a "rough" date, right?"

I think the sgs2 is still gonna blow this phone out of the water!!
11. speedraser (unregistered)
specs aren't any better than the Evo 3D... and its coming out when?? maybe 6 months later?? that's like comparing the Evo 3D to the original sgs2 which came out 6 months ago.. and that's not even close... but with the sgs2 taking 6 months longer to come out, to be virtually identical specs isn't impressive...
13. Allday28 (Posts: 273; Member since: 19 Nov 2010)
You can buy it now and its already better than the evo 3D. Im not knocking the evo i like it. But the galaxy 2 is better..
16. AndroidTroll (Posts: 359; Member since: 05 Mar 2011)
Yeah Galaxy 2 is better because it runs shitty touch wiz, gets updates once in a blue moon, has an inferior camera, no glasses free 3D display, and a slower chipset.

sgs2 aint got nothing on the evo 3d, samsung makes good screens but thats it. the phone isnt that sweet, evo 3d is killing it

Just preordered my evo 3d from the sprint store today!

Just spoke to my HTC rep and was told mid to late June that it was not coming out on the 4th of June.

This is interesting, considering it was only 3 days ago they said they didn't know the release date. So either they're pulling something out of their ass to get people to reserve at Radio Shack or they received info. If it is June 4th we should get an official statement this weekend. Already preordered at Best Buy.

I was all set on getting the Evo 3D in June .Then I heard the rumor about the iphone coming to Sprint in September with a new dual core processor and an even better 8mp camera! ( although it will still only be a 3G phone...) Now I'm not sure what to do!!! Suggestions anyone?
19. atree (Posts: 24; Member since: 20 May 2011)
depends on, your current carrier, your wants and needs from said phone (android vs ios operating systems) , also, it is just a better version of the current iphone speaking from a hardware standpoint. Apple has not added anything "new" to their UI in a long time, they are turning into blackberry IMO.

whats the point of this phone, sprint is going to drop wimax just like IDEN to get LTE. What a great phone too bad its going to waste
22. atree (Posts: 24; Member since: 20 May 2011)
Even though sprint is most likely switching to LTE , some of us dont have 4g wimax or 4g lte in their network area anyways so it doesn't matter when the switch occurs, ill stick with the evo 3d for a year and upgrade to a 4g lte phone next summer.
23. luis_lopez_351 (Posts: 951; Member since: 18 Nov 2010)
So they Use Sprints old slow 3G. Bummer
24. Wolves11 (unregistered)
Well since LTE is still pretty limited on coverage areas, And Wimax is in about double the areas, Using a WiMax phone for now sounds like a good idea, unless you are like me, one of the few that gets LTE now, and not WiMax....

nice phone wow, when do it coming in europe?
especiality in spain ....it come.s always first in holland and at last in spain pfff
37. SHACK07 (unregistered)
There is already the HTC EVO3D thats out over there... I think its in asia, should be pretty easy for you to find unlocked to use one Orange or one of the other western european networks, id look into it
26. ZayZay (Posts: 548; Member since: 26 Feb 2011)
Sprint will most likely release this phone on a Sunday like all there phone's. I am sure this phone is no different. So the 5th, 12th, 19th, or 26th is when it should launch.

TERRIBLY SORRY FELLAS--- Radioshack has NO idea when the release date is.
June 4th was the release date of the EVO 4G--- it too, was announced a couple months prior on a similar date to the EVO 3D's announcement, to be coming out int he 2nd quarter.
The June 4th date is simply the release date of the 4G, and that is where Radioshack is getting their estimate from. IT is unrealistic that the EVO 3D gets a June 4th release date because they still havn't announced the release date yet. The EVO 4G's June 4th release date was announced several weeks before it happens. They are not going to release the 3D on June 4th when it is 5/25, a week and a few days prior, and the release date hasn't even been announced yet. Try June 20th--- that is a bit more realistic.

well, i work at radio shack, and those emails could be sent out. it was said to be hush hush about it, but since the phone will have huge ring credit, some supervisors and DM's might push the idea of pre ordering.

The HTC EVO 3D will be able to work with both LTE and Wimax.
30. atree (Posts: 24; Member since: 20 May 2011)
I disagree, LTE runs on the 700 frequency were as the wimaxnetwork the evo 3d uses is 802.16e

I pre ordered mine on Tuesday at a Sprint corporate store and the guy that took my order told me June 5th was going to be the day. I'm in Nashville, tn btw
33. Travis (unregistered)
Update.... called the Sprint corporate store again and was told a release of june 19th for fathers day
34. j2kninek (unregistered)
Nice email system, Radioshack. Lol
35. Vivian Wolford (unregistered)
I was told at a Corporate Store in Vegas that it was being released on June 18th.
36. SHACK07 (unregistered)
Just to let everyone know, I work at radioshack and take that email with a grain of salt. No one at radioshack has a release date for this phone. I have been looking foreward to this phone since march just like the rest of you and this email was sent by a DM that shurly doesnt know crap about any release date... If we had the release date we would have the pricing at the same time... im sure all of you saw the leaked ADD for the trade and save 100$ offer, but that info was leaked from corporate and we found that out just like the rest of you, online. Ill say it one more time, take this email with a grain of salt, because the disclaimer "rough" means it could still be weeks and weeks off. Sorry to be the barer of bad news, but i just dont want you guys to get your hopes up and have it come out on the 16th 2 weeks later and be like wtf... I hope it comes out on the 4th too... looks like thats what a lot of sources are going for... also since they decided a couple days ago not to lock to bootloader, we might end up seeing the release date pushed back a few days to accomodate that... just a thought.
38. damian6669 (Posts: 1; Member since: 02 Jun 2011)
the release date is june 24th at radioshack
39. hdusoncal5 (unregistered)
The official release date will be june 24th 2011 sorry guys a few more week's. The date sprint will offically release the release date will be june 10th and the device will be ready to buy on the 24th.
40. chris20 (unregistered)
it only has 5 mega pixels in the camera area.....overall a good phone but the reg. Evo is way better, works better, delivers better, just bot 3d which will mess up your eyes so stick with the regular one till nov.2011. then the next best phone will be released from sprint
41. L (unregistered)
Haha. So no phone on the 4th. At least the current Evo FINALLY got updated software. ...which means we must be close to getting the new phone. Lol.
42. James Milber (unregistered)
YAYEH!!!!!!!!! HTC just sent the email announcing HTC 3D EVO is being released June 24th! Prior to this, on 5/26, I made a youtube video predicting that on 6/4/2011 give or take a few days (6/6), the announcement would be made for 6/24. Did I whoop some ass with that predictino or what? =P
PS. This is before the radioshack 6/24 was out either.
