Finding that the HTC Evo V uses 4.3 inches display screen size, our mind directly jump to the other smartphone’s manufacturer which also comes with 4.3″ display: Samsung Galaxy S II. Along with Virgin Mobile carrier (in US), the Evo V support 4G WiMAX with SQN1210. It is powered Android Ice Cream Sandwich and has dual-cor 1.2GHz processor speed with Qualcomm MSM8660 chipset (other source said it uses MSM8655L chipset). The RAM has 1GB and for the internal eMMC built memory has 4GB ROM capacity.
The main feature of HTC Evo V, in my opinion is the dual camera with dual flash light attached on the rear panel of the device in which it designed to shoot 3D photos and videos. Thus, the 4.3 inches qHD LCD display is designed to show 3D viewing experience by using a parallax barrier overlay. With this display you can watch videos / photos in 3D viewing without need additional 3D glasses.
It’s available for two colors body: black cover casing and plum cover casing.
