HTC Evo V 4G will come to Virgin Mobile and it will be released in on May 31st and it will the predecessor of the HTC EVO 3D but without being Sprint branded.
Virgin Mobile took the HTC One X and transformed it into the HTC Evo V 4G and decided that the it should be ready for a May 31st release date along with Android 4.0 and the HTC Sense 3.6 and this will only be available for the Virgin Mobile device. For the moment HTC and Virgin Mobile are keeping their mouths shut about the device’s CPU but it is rumored that it will pack a dual-core 1.2GHz Qualcomm S3 CPU.
The HTC EVO V 4G comes packed with a 4.3 inch qHD touchscreen, 5MP camera with support for video and 3D HD images along with a 1.3MP front-facing camera, 1730 mAh battery that should have an autonomy of over 6h talk time, 1GB RAM and 4GB ROM, external microSD storage card that supports up to 32GB, dual mics for noise suppression, digital compass, light sensor, G-sensor, GPS AGPS and 4G WiMAX service, obviously.
The pricing of HTC EVO 4G will be available for $299.99 and it will be available with Beyond Talk by Virgin contract plan starting from $35/month delivering 300 minutes, unlimited SMS and 2.5GB data on 4G. Multiple reports are saying the the HTC EVO V 4G is in fact the same device as EVO 3D but Virgin Mobile still hasn’t confirmed this.
Releasing a phone similar to the one that Sprint launched last year might not prove to be a smart choice, but for the moment Virgin Mobile hasn’t released any new info about the EVO V 4G. The only thing we can do is to wait until May 31 comes and see if the new phone will indeed be packed with the same hardware as Sprint’s EVO 3D.
