HTC EVO ONE for Sprint to launch in June with large display and battery
An anonymous insider for Android Central passed along the specs for the next generation of the HTC EVO. The phone is expected to be introduced on April 4th and certainly qualifies as a beast. According to the tipster, the HTC EVO ONE will have a 4.7 inch 720p AMOLED screen with a dual-core 1.5GHz krait processor under the hood. The latter is the same CPU that the AT&T version of the HTC One X is rockin'. There will be a 2650 non-removable battery powering the phone and 16GB of internal memory which can be bumped up using the microSD slot. An 8MP camera is on back with a 2MP front-facing shooter. Android 4.0 is installed out of the box along with Sense 4.0 and it is a Beats Audio device. The HTC EVO ONE will offer LTE connectivity and is penciled in for a June 6th launch.

As you might have guessed, the HTC EVO ONE will not be riding on the usual HTC chassis and will be the biggest phone in terms of size, that Sprint has ever offered. HTC is certainly focusing on those high-end specs and the inclusion of such a big battery is sure to make power users happy.

No word on what Sprint might ask for the device. We should find out much more on April 4th when Sprint and HTC are supposed to unveil this handset.

with that high a resolution you wont notice if the pixels are pentile anyways.

I doubt it's going to be SAMOLED. Samsung will never give the good stuff to direct competitors. I'm betting on it being S-LCD2.

THe HTC One S has the same super amoled on the galaxy nexus, and so does the moto razr, the A5X processor was also built by samsung. So..yes you are right Samsung will NEVER give the good stuff to direct competitors.

The RAZR (540 x 960 qHD, 256ppi) and the Galaxy Nexus (720 x 1280 HD, 316ppi) aren't the same screen. And I wouldn't say it's literally impossible for the human eye to see individual pixels for either case. I'd agree it is practically impossible, but the quality of the RAZR screen isn't quite as nice as I would have liked. Not to hijack the comments thread for the HTC EVO (looks like a nice phone!), but a casual observer might not realize everything you say is fact-less B.S.

I know they have different resolution, not stupid. You should realize I meant it is the same display as in technology...

Your sarcasm is falling short. The qHD SAMOLED falls short of the 720p SAMOLED displays, and it definitely falls far short of the RGB stripe 720p SAMOLED displays that are coming in the SGS3. S-LCD2 looks amazing, and it looks like the best possible option to go head to head against the SGS3.

Razr has super amoled advanced...

SA advanced is just super amoled, motorola just added the "advanced" to it because it has a higher resulution than the Galaxy S that came with the super amoled. it is the same technology, just higher resolution. you might as well say that the HTC One S has a Super Amoled Advanced also.

xD the One S DOES have Super AMOLED Advanced. that's what Super AMOLED with qHD IS.

91. Mario1017

Posts: 336; Member since: Sep 04, 2011

do you not understand? its still a regular super amoled, just with a high res, moto just came up with the advanced. super amoled in qhd is still super amoled.

92. KingKurogiii

Posts: 5713; Member since: Oct 23, 2011

yeah i know that. what's your point? HTC was the first to use Super AMOLED in an Android Smartphone and Motorola was the first to use Super AMOLED Advanced ever and Motorola didn't name it as such because it's obviously not their display, Super AMOLED Advanced is the universal term for a Super AMOLED display with qHD resolution. the only Super AMOLED display there is that actually improves upon the AMOLED aspect is Super AMOLED Plus.

Samsung was the first to use super smiled as they developed it. SA Advanced is not universal. If it was then HTC would have used it as well. Its just a term used by moto when they released the razr to let people know that it wasn't the same screen that came out a year before but had 33% more pixels. http://www.oled-info.com/super-amoled-advanced http://www.anandtech.com/show/5198/motorola-droid-razr-review-a-better-clad-bionic/4 If advanced was universal it would have been named by Samsung. It us an ordinary pentile smiled with higher resolution.

read guy. the Droid Incredible was the first Android Smartphone to come to the market with a Super AMOLED display. it came out some months before the Galaxy S series. what makes you so sure Motorola was the one to brand it as such? in any case it might as well just be used universally. you know what i'm talking about when i say it. it doesn't subtract from my point anyway. it's Samsung's first qHD AMOLED display and it was in a Motorola. Samsung has never had a history of withholding technology even if somebody else can beat them to the market with it. they see it as a win because it still gets money in their pockets. they've sold lots of their phones even with the Droid Incredible and the Droid Razr beating them to market with their new screen technology so why not make a little extra cash supplying displays?

But....the Driod Incredible did not have a Super Amoled display...it had a regular Amoled. That is where you are confused.

Mario...stfu. Super, non Super, same thing, same point just with or without a Super.

It's not super amoled... It's SLCD2 just like the One X. Android Central posted a rumor and PhoneArena just rewrote an article about it. Phandroid has sources that have already confirmed (twice) that the display will be SLCD2. It really is a shame that phone arena NEVER gets the exclusives. They have no sources but from other websites and lately the articles they put out are ignorantly and quickly slapped down rewritten news from another site with more typos than a 5th grade research paper. I've been a loyal PA reader for a while but if this keeps up I'm probably going to stick with the bigger and more resourceful tech news sites like Phandroid, The Verge, AndroidCentral, engadget, BGR, and even (dare I say it) Phonedog!

Phone Arena has had exclusives before. i've even given them a few.

Don't get your hopes up that a large battery will mean much. I just returned my Galaxy Note, because the battery was the worst I had ever seen in a Android device. The charging of a large battery takes a long time and not keep up on charging while plugged into a car charger while talking on it or even using Navigation.

How long did you have it? It took about a month for the battery in my Evo to be conditioned when I first bought it.

HTC One X plus many others up coming Android device are being built without expansion slots and no removable battery? Because from my understanding, as a Mac user and owner of everything Mac, this is the MAIN reason why people, including myself never bother with an iCrap iPhone. Although Apples ecosystem is better as far as quality is concern. However I was OK, comfortable with Android ecosystem. However if the new trend in smartphone are going to be like the iPhone, with no expansion slots and removable battery. Why would I chose to continue with Android, it's a no brainier that being force chose between all the non removable no expansion slot phone in the up coming market, Lots of Mac owner with Androids device will jump onto the iPhone bandwagon. After all the ecosystem is better every which way. However in a perfect world I WANT to stay with Android phone, because of the removable battery and expansion slots. I don't care what anyone says, I need that extra battery in my pocket. I have all my family and friends on that dam iCrap iPhone, running around like a chicken with it's head cut off looking for an outlet all over the city. I don't want to be one of those headless chickens kind of people. However if I were force, then I will gladly be that headless chicken looking for a plug for my iPhone 5.

HTC is garbage. Buy a Samsung.

After the horrible experience of SLOW updates and hardly any support from Samsung on my wifes' Epic, I doubt I will buy another Samsung. My HTC Evo always received updates many months before the Epic.

Dude the Epic is like almost 3 years old now, good lord. We all had a terrible experience with the original Galaxy line. There is a reason why Samsung is #1 right now.

Try a year and a half. Even the evo isn't 2 years old yet and that came out before the epic.
