Global designer of smartphones, HTC Corporation, has launched the HTC EVO 3D in Australia.
The smartphone features a 4.3-inch qHD screen that allows 3D images and videos to be played and watched without the use of 3D glasses. Its dual 5MP cameras and camera button simplifies the process of making 3D movies and taking 3D photographs.
The HTC EVO 3D comes pre-loaded with a 3D movie and 3D games. Further content can be purchased from HTC’s video streaming service, HTC Watch, when it is available locally from late 2011.
With integrated 3D HD (720p) video capture and specifications of the latest version of the HTC Sense experience, the device allows users to seamlessly post high-quality videos to YouTube, Facebook or live over the Internet.
Its integrated Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA) capability facilitates stored music, pictures and user-generated HD video wireless sharing with other DLNA-certified home electronics – including HDTVs, monitors, digital cameras and printers.
Users can connect a HDMI cable to share user-created 3D video content via a 3D TV.
Other key features include: a 1.2 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon dual-core processor, Android Gingerbread 2.3.4, a front facing 1.3MP camera, Google mobile services, HSDPA 14.4 Mbps/ HSUPA 5.76 Mbps, dual microphones for noise suppression, Digital compass, G-Sensor, Light-Sensor and AGPS.
Consumers can further customise the smartphone by downloading more than 150,000 applications, widgets and games via the Android market.
HTC A/NZ country manager, Ben Hodgson, said, “3D has revolutionised the way customers experience content and the HTC EVO 3D will change the way customers interact with their devices and how they create and share their experiences with friends and family.”
The HTC EVO 3D will be available on multiple carrier networks from mid-September 2011, with pricing and plans to be announced in coming weeks.
