Sprint presents the HTC EVO 4G LTE, one of the first smartphones to support the carrier's upcoming LTE network (it's expected to launch later this year, ahead of the release of the EVO 4G LTE). It's fairly big at 5.3 inches by 2.7 inches, but also surprisingly thin (0.35 inches) and light (4.7 ounces). The device sports a 4.7-inch 1280-by-720 pixel super LCD screen, good for Web browsing and videos, and is powered by a 1.5GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor. A main selling point is the 8-megapixel camera that shoots well in low light and features burst mode, which captures 4 images per second. It also handles 1080p video even as you take still pictures. The EVO is also the first phone to support "HD Voice," a higher-quality encoder for phone calls (it's limited to just Sprint-to-Sprint calls). Other features include 16GB of on-board memory, a micro-SD slot for an additional 32GB of storage, Beats audio, Android 4.0, plus a kickstand for easy viewing. Pre-orders for the $199.99 phone will begin on May 7th, with an official launch date forthcoming.
