Slashgear covering live the Sprint event at CTIA, with two new devices unveiled, both powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon processors: The HTC EVO 3D, and the HTC EVO 4G Android tablet. The HTC EVO 3D features the dual-core MSM8660 Snapdragon 1.2 GHz processor, and the View 4G has a single CPU 1.5 GHz Snapdragon processor.


The EVO 3D's dual cores are asynchronous, allowing them to run at different speeds simultaneously. This will help with battery life on the phone. This will be HTC's first dual-core Android smartphone. The Snapdragon MSM8660 supports advanced 3D including full 1080p 30fps HD and stereoscopic 3D video capture and playback.
