HTC and Sprint came together today to announce the HTC EVO 4G LTE, available exclusively from Sprint.

HTC EVO 4G LTE runs the latest Android build, Ice Cream Sandwich, and has HTC’s Sense UI over it. The phone has a 4.7-inch HD display, a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, a 2000 mAh battery, Beats audio, an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera and a 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera.

Where this phone really differs from other Android phones is with its HD voice-capability. Sprint will be the first US carrier to have a nationwide HD Voice network, starting late 2012. Sprint says that the service provides fuller, more natural-sounding and less fatiguing voice quality and should reduce background noises.

“Sprint has a long history of leading the wireless industry in innovation, and the debut of HTC EVO 4G LTE marks another chapter in that innovation story,” said Sprint’s CEO Dan Hesse. “Once again, we are partnering with HTC to deliver the benchmark Android device for the year with the next generation of our award-winning EVO brand. We know our customers will appreciate the focus on audio and voice quality with EVO 4G LTE, including the addition of Beats Audio and HD Voice capability.”

The HTC EVO 4G LTE will be available for preorder on May 7th at www.sprint.com/evo4glte. It will be available for $199.99 with a two year contract and unlimited data.
