Who says that pre-paid carriers don't offer interesting phones. Recently, it was announced that Virgin Mobile would be getting the HTC One V
and now a reliable source for PocketNow says
that Sprint will be handing off the HTC EVO 3D to its pre-paid cousin
. Virgin is expected to offer the stereoscopic handset as the HTC EVO V 4G.
The HTC EVO 3D still has some compelling specs today, with a dual-core 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor under the hood with 1GB of RAM. The 4.3 inch screen offers qHD resolution and the dual-lens 5MP camera on back lets you snap 3D pictures. The unit is one of two glasses-free 3D smartphones in the States and will continue to offer 4G hotspot functionality
No contract means no subsidy on the price of the phone. So far though, there is no word on how much Virgin would charge for the phone and when it would be released. According to the source, the HTC EVO 3D will be offered by Virgin Mobile in both grey and plum
. The latter had been an exclusive color for Best Buy customers.
