HTC INTRODUCES THE FIRST GLASSES-FREE DEVICE WITH QHD 3D DISPLAY – HTC EVO 3D

HTC pushes the limits of innovation with their first 3D-enabled multimedia features on the HTC EVO 3D

 

Malaysia – 23 August, 2011 – HTC Corporation, a global leader in mobile innovation and design, today unveiled the HTC EVO 3D, taking the mobile multimedia experience to a new level, providing the ability to capture and not only view in 3D through a brilliant high-defintion display, but also share at fast speeds, offering consumers the ultimate glasses-free 3D experience.

Built with the Gingerbread (2.3) version of Android™, HTC EVO 3D features HTC’s first qHD 3D 4.3-inch display and a powerful 1.2 GHz QualcommSnapdragon dual-core processor. HTC EVO 3D also features dual 5 megapixel cameras, which can be used to capture both high-quality conventional and stunning 3D images and videos, opening up new frontiers for user-generated content, social networking and streaming video.

As 3D has become more sought-after in both movie theaters and family rooms, the ability to enjoy 3D on a wireless phone – 3D glasses-free – will change the way customers interact with their devices. According to The NPD Group’s 3D 360° Monitor (September 2010), consumers show a high degree of interest in working with personal media in 3D (with one-third saying they would like to take photos in 3D).

The countless ways customers benefit from HTC EVO 3D’s dynamic ability to capture and playback video in 3D include:

  • Real estate agents can create and share 3D virtual tours of homes that let out-of-town buyers “walk through” the house and truly experience the listings before they can see them live;
  • 3D mapping of terrain will help build new and exciting features for navigation, and hikers will be able to get aerial views of the topography of rivers and mountains while in the backcountry; and
  • Families can “relive” the excitement of their vacation and feel like they are there again.

“At HTC, we believe in offering a wide portfolio of beautifully designed, powerful and highly customizable devices for our customers, and the HTC EVO 3D does just that,” said Lennard Hoornik, President of HTC South Asia Pacific. “As HTC continues to push the limits of innovation, we are looking forward to delivering the HTC EVO 3D to our customers this year.”

According to ABI Research (Dec. 20, 2010) mobile 3D devices will be driven by three key applications: creation of user-generated 3D content by integrated video and still cameras, playback of 3D content and 3D gaming. It also anticipates that mobile devices may turn out to be the most successful form factor towards bringing 3D technology into mainstream markets.

With integrated 3D HD (720p) video capture and the latest version of the acclaimed HTC Sense experience, HTC EVO 3D makes it possible to become part of the action and then easily and seamlessly post high-quality video to YouTube™ or Facebook, or share moments in real time over the Internet live. Its integrated DLNA (Digital Living Network Alliance) capability makes it fast and easy to share stored music, pictures and user-generated HD video wirelessly with other DLNA-certified® home electronics, including HDTVs, monitors, digital cameras, printers and more. Using an HDMI cable (sold separately) makes it possible to also share user-created 3D video content via a 3D TV.
