The Evo (known as the Supersonic a few weeks back) comes with a super-fast 1GHz Snapdragon processor, just like the HTC Touch HD2, running Google's Android 2.1 OS.

Features include a 4.3-inch (480 x 800 pixels) TFT LCD display, an 8.0 megapixel camera with autofocus and HD video recording, a 1.3 megapixel in the front for video calls. The Evo also comes with built-in mobile hotspot functionality, allowing the phone to share its 4G data with up to eight WiFi devices. An HDMI out is also present on the phone, as well as a kickstand for watching videos, 1GB of built-in storage and 512MB of RAM.

Even though it's a 4G phone, the HTC Evo will still be able to run 3G. Currently, 4G is only available to about 34 million people, not including major cities like New York, San Francisco and Washington. Sprint hopes to expand coverage to up to 120 million people by the end of 2010.

Even though the HTC Evo won't be out until this summer, Sprint seems to be in a hurry to attract as many eyeballs as possible. The carrier has lost about 9 million customers in the past three years, so showing off their goods is the way to go. Unfortunately, we don't have an exact launch that, nor a price.
