Vodafone to launch the HTC EVO 3D on July 11th as simply the HTC EVO?
While it might not give us a precise clue as when to expect the U.S. launch of the HTC EVO 3D, according to Phones Limited, Vodafone will launch its variant of the device in the U.K. on July 11th. Vodafone plans on calling the device the HTC EVO in the U.K., taking off the "3D" part of the name that the phone will be called in the States. Despite the change in name, the version that Vodafone will make available to U.K. customers on contract is said to be similar to the version that Sprint will eventually launch on U.S. soil, except it will be without the 4G WiMax connectivity that the Sprint version features.

This means that not only will both U.K. and U.S. users of the device be able to snap pictures with the dual-lens 5MP camera, they both will be able to view them in 3D without glasses on the model's 4.3 inch qHD display. Android 2.3 is onboard while a 1.2GHz Snapdragon dual-core processor brings the speed.

There is no word yet on pricing of the handset, but this is something that Vodafone might reveal during an official introduction. In the meantime, U.S. cell phone fans are eagerly waiting to hear an official launch date for the HTC EVO 3D on this side of the Atlantic. We recently reported that a leaked screenshot revealed a June 4th launch date at Radio Shack, but the retailer's ads for this time period do not show what would surely be a heavily advertised device.

Thanks, Philip!
