HTC EVO 4G LTE Sprint signage

Earlier this month we were informed by a source that the HTC EVO 4G LTE could be hitting Sprint on May 18th, and now that date is making the rounds once again. The folks at Good and EVO are reporting that a "reliable source" has told them that the EVO 4G LTE is due to launch on May 18th, and the site has also gotten hold of some images of the marketing materials that Sprint will be using to build excitement for the device. The signage is expected to begin hitting Sprint stores on May 14th and touts various features of the EVO 4G LTE, including Beats Audio and its camera.

As far as official launch details for the EVO 4G LTE go, Sprint has only said that it'll be arriving in the second quarter, with pre-orders set to kick off on May 7th. Like we noted in our first report of the May 18th launch rumor, Sprint has kept its pre-order periods rather short as of late, and when you combine that detail with today's leak, a May 18th debut for the EVO 4G LTE becomes an even stronger possibility. Now we wait for Sprint to spill the official launch date beans. How many of you are thinking about picking up an EVO 4G LTE?

Martin Martinez
Martin Martinez No cause it would be a waste of money whn I can't use 4g in my city the phone I got was free with sprint which was a huge mistake cause even at 3g im only getting 354kbps and that's at full signal!!!!!

Anthony Bailey
Anthony Bailey Nope. It's a joke. Samsung Galaxy Note 4ever!
Josh Veerkamp
Josh Veerkamp Nope. If Sprint's LTE expands at even double the rate of its WiMax they should cover... Oh, nobody.
Francis Singh
Francis Singh I always had sprint and so far I think its better then at&t. No problems
Rico Robinson
Rico Robinson Excited is NOT the word. I haven't had any real trouble with Sprint or it's network since leaving AT&T and joining Sprint four years ago and having owned HTC smartphones exclusively, even after sampling the offerings from Samsung, Sony, LG, Motorola and Apple, this phone seems made from DNA extracted from my personal dreams. Given that this phone is a modified One X, appearance aside, how can anyone possibly say that its NOT an improvement?!? It makes the One X seem basic, excellent as the beautiful One X is. This phone is truly worthy of the EVO name. I can't say that about the other handsets that followed the original EVO 4G. I was admittedly disappointed with the direction the EVO family took after the 4G and was really irritated with the thinking (or lack of thinking) behind those handsets but as far as I'm concerned, both Sprint and HTC have redeemed themselves. I'm in!
Kevin J. Lee
Kevin J. Lee Kinda sorta.
Naj Khan
Naj Khan No samsung s3 is better
Michael Boyd

Byktor Urvaes

Marvin Oubre
Marvin Oubre I would be excited if I was upgrading, but my EVO 3D is only 10 months old.
