Sprint took the wraps off a new EVO-branded handset today called the HTC EVO Design 4G. The Design 4G is a rebadged version of the Hero S. It is a slim tri-mode CDMA/WiMax phone that also offers world-wide roaming thanks to GSM/HSPA+ network compatibility. It features a 4-inch qHD display, dual-core 1.2GHz processor, 768MB of RAM, Android 2.3 Gingerbread with HTC Sense 3.0, and a 5-megapixel camera. Other features include a 1.3-megapixel user-facing camera, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 3.0, gyroscope, compass, proximity, and ambient light sensors. The EVO Design 4G goes on sale October 23 for $99.99 with a new two-year service agreement after a $50 mail-in rebate.

Mid level phone

This is truly a mid-level phone.

Not Dual Core

If it's a rebadged Hero S, than it's probably not a dual core. It would be the 1.2GHz Single Core Snapdragon. Still a pretty zippy phone though. At least, the Hero S version is.
Yup. All of the other sites are reporting this as a single core. Still might not be a bad replacement (not an upgrade) for the Evo 4G. I am still waiting for the upgrade to the Evo 4G without the 3D gimmick.
