Is CTIA a small show? Well, do not think this anymore as HTC has made this show big this time. Earlier this week, HTC and Verizon made a splash at the event with the launch of HTC DROID Incredible 4G LTE. And now with partnership with Sprint, HTC has spiced up the show with the announcement of EVO 4G LTE that is hitting stores May 18.

EVO 4G LTE does not possess the "One" moniker, but the device is identical to HTC One X. Also it measures 8.9mm thick, same as One X. The EVO 4G LTE sports 4.7-inch Super IPS LCD2 display with a resolution of 720 X 1280 pixels. It packs dual-core 1.5 GHz Snapdragon processor with 1GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage. Giving expandable memory options, it supports microSD card up to 32GB.

EVO 4G LTE include 8-megapixel camera with LED flash support, featuring the latest HTC ImageSense technology. There is also a secondary 1.3-megapixel camera in the device. The regular connectivity features like Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, NFC and GPS are there.

The EVO 4G LTE runs Android OS 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich with Sense UI v4.0 overlay and Beats Audio integration. The cutting-edge software is as impressive as the phone's hardware.

Although, the new member of EVO family is 4G LTE compatible, yet do not expect super-fast Internet speeds as Sprint's LTE network is not completely operational yet. Additionally, the HD Voice will only work if both persons on the call are using HD Voice-enabled phones on a HD Voice-enabled network.

However, a good news is that Sprint is working hard to roll out LTE network. Giving a vision of its plans at New Orleans' CTIA show, Sprint indicated that the company is planning to release 15 LTE devices by the end of 2012.

HTC EVO 4G LTE is hitting stores May 18 with a price tag of $199 with a 2-year contract. The device is also up for pre orders on Sprint's official website.
