More than a gimmick, the HTC EVO 3D takes its 3D credentials to its core with a 4.3-inch qHD stereoscopic display allowing users to view 3D content without the need for extra-dimensional specs whilst dual 5-megapixel snappers allow users to create their own 3D content, a feature further boosted by 720p HD video recording capabilities at 30fps.

Featuring the latest rendition of the company’s hugely popular Sense UI that first landed on the HTC Sensation, the HTC EVO 3D sports 3D menus and widgets with a speedy 1.2GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor providing the power.

“Smartphones have revolutionised how people communicate and entertain themselves on the move. You can now carry your favourite films, music, photos and games in your pocket wherever you go,” announced Florian Seiche, President of HTC EMEA.

“The HTC EVO 3D allows people to explore this new technology trend beyond the living room, enabling them to capture and share their lives with family and friends in amazing 3D.”
