Unlike the HTC One X, the HTC EVO 4G LTE is the first smartphone to feature HD voice calling. That's not all, you'll also find "a dual-core 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 processor with 1GB RAM and 16GB ROM," 8.0-megapixel camera, and 4.7-inch Super LCD 2 display. Click here for more pictures.

The official release window is Q2 but pre-orders go on sale May 7th - and given Sprint's modus operandi, that likely means its street date is just weeks after that. The Evo 4G LTE will be $199.99 on contract, and yes, data is still unlimited on 4G.

Running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, the HTC One X packs a quad-core 1.5-GHz processor, 8.0-megapixel camera, 1GB of RAM, 32GB of internal memory, 802.11 a/b/g/n Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity into a svelte 8.9mm thick package. Click here for more pictures. Continue reading for a video review. Here's the bottom line:

Seriously, HTC has done something pretty special with the One line, and I'm encouraged that Peter Chou and company appear to be back on the right track. Just give me a One X running something closer to stock Android 4.0, HTC, and I believe you've got the best smartphone ever made.

Unlike other phones, the HTC Autonome has an innovative charging function: you can either "directly plug-in the phone to the wall socket, negating the use of any cables. Or, you can detach the specialized module, tank it up and then hook it back to the phone and transfer the juice." Click here for more pictures. In related news, continue reading to see a real emergency solar phone.

This way you get the freedom to use the phone whilst charging the extra ammo. I love the magnesium unibody frame designed for this, and of course the practical solution for charging. Ideal for travelers too!

Set for release on July 17th, priced at $50 w/service agreement, the Facebook Phone (HTC Status) boasts a 2.6-inch display, MSM7227 800MHz processor, 512MB of RAM, 512MB of ROM, 5.0-megapixel camera, and Android 2.3+HTC Sense. Click here for more pictures. Continue reading for the video review. Here's the bottom line:

HTC's version of the so-called 'Facebook phone' is done far better than Microsoft's. The Status' hardware still lands it squarely withing the realm of smartphones, while the Kin models existed in a vague territory between smart and dumb (i.e. smartphone versus a traditional feature phone).

Today, HTC announced that it will release the EVO 3D in Europe next month. Powered by Android 2.3, it features "a 4.3-inch display with qHD (540 x 960) resolution and an added parallax barrier layer that allows it to deliver a glasses-free 3D effect." Continue reading for a review of the Sprint version.

There's also a 1.2GHz dual-core Snapdragon purring within for the performance obsessives and a generous 1730mAh battery -- perhaps the biggest advantage that we can see for this phone over the similarly specced (but 3D-less) Sensation.
