HTC Supersonic announced as HTC EVO 4G, heading to Sprint this summer

The HTC Supersonic is the HTC EVO 4G. That’s the news coming out of CTIA courtesy of Engadget. The EVO 4G looks like an HTC HD2 with the Android version of Sense UI. The phone sports a WVGA, 4.3-inch TFT touchscreen;a Snapdragon 1GHz processor, 1GB of memory, and 512MB of RAM. By the time you add an 8 megapixel camera with flash, 720p video, 1.3 megapixel camera in the front, HDMI output, and an included 8GB microSD card, you’ve got a monster of a phone.

Sprint unveiled the EVO today at CTIA. The phone will launch this summer on its 4G network with Android 2.1 level Sense UI. The phone will support up to eight connections on WiMAX, meaning the phone can become a Wi-Fi hotspot for other devices nearby.
