HTC EVO 4G+ quietly announced: 4.3” qHD screen, 1.2GHz dual-core chip
The HTC EVO 4G+ has just made one of the quietest debuts we've seen recently. The reason might lie in the fact that it was launched far east in South Korea, advertized as the phone that is “everything you can imagine,” but hopefully HTC's imagination doesn't mean Korea-only availability. The EVO 4G+ mimics the looks of Sprint's HTC EVO 3D, but replaces the 3D feature with a single 8 megapixel camera capable of 1080p full HD recording. The 3D switch on the side has been replaced with a button toggling between video recording and still capture.
On the inside, a powerful 1.2GHz dual-core chip matched by 1GB of RAM helps run the latest of HTC Sense skinning on top of Android. The screen is pretty spacious measuring 4.3 inches in diagonal and boasting 540 x 960 pixels of resolution. It's not the slimmest of phones with girth of 0.47 inches (12.05mm) and it adds some solid heft with its 5.64oz (160 g) of weight.
The price and release date of the HTC EVO 4G+ are yet unknown, but judging from a recent FCC filing about an HTC Sensation lookalike equipped with CDMA and WiMAX, there is some chance that this could land on Sprint.
