HTC was around to show off its newest set of smartphones and tablets that it announced today at the CTIA Wireless 2011 conference. The HTC Evo 3D, which is able to shoot 3D video and can show 3D photos and play back 3D video, was among the phones the company released today.
Stereoscopic 3D is catching on in more phones as gadget makers try to outdo each other in a technological arms race, where what matters is how much pack into a tiny device.
The phone sports a dual-core 1.2 gigahertz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor that can record 720p high-definition 3D video and 1080p high-definition regular video. The display runs a resolution of 960 pixels by 540 pixels — compared to the iPhone 4’s retina display, which is 960 by 640 pixels. The 3D camera consists of a pair of 5-megapixel cameras — similar to most other smartphones on the market.
Like the Nintendo 3DS, the 3D display does not require 3D glasses to display 3-dimensional images. There is a switch that triggers whether the display shows 3D images or 2D images, like the Nintendo 3DS. The phone will be available this summer on Sprint.
