Sprint announces Android 4.0 for HTC EVO 3D and HTC EVO Design 4G early next month
Sprint on Monday announced that a couple of its handsets will be getting the Android 4.0 update in the beginning of August. The two devices are the HTC EVO 3D and the HTC EVO Design 4G. Both devices will not only each get updated to Ice Cream Sandwich, but they both will be updated to HTC Sense 3.6. This is an update that falls just shy of Sense 4.0. Sprint says that it will announce a specific date for both updates in the near future.

The HTC EVO Design 4G has a 4 inch qHD Super-LCD display with pixel density of 275ppi. A single-core 1.2GHz Qualcomm MSM8665 processor is under the hood and 768MB of RAM is on board. The handset offers 4GB of native storage that can be expanded thanks to the 32GB capacity microSD slot. The 5MP camera on back has AF and an LED flash and captures video in 720p at 30 fps. The 1.3MP front-facing camera takes self-portraits and supports video chat. A 1520mAh camera powers the model. Right now, of course, Android 2.3 is installed.

Meanwhile, the HTC EVO 3D presents stereoscopic 3D which means images appear in all three dimensions without glasses. A 4.3 inch Super-LCD display offers pixel density of 256ppi and under the hood is a dual-core 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor with the Adreno 220 GPU. 1GB of  RAM is on board and there is 1GB of native storage that can be expanded with the use of the 32GB capacity microSD slot. The 5MP dual-lens shoots stereoscopic 3D pictures. Video is captured in 720p HD and 3D video is caught at the same resolution. A fairly large 1730mAh battery keeps all three dimensions running and Android 2.3 is installed.

Is anyone still rocking these models? After the update, each phone is going to feel like it took a sip from the Fountain of Youth.
