HTC EVO 4G LTE - Bluetooth Version?

Does this phone really only support Bluetooth 3.0+ rather than Bluetooth 4.0 like its' sibling phone the AT&T HTC One X?  I thought that Sprint's phone was basically the HTC One X rebranded for Sprint but then why the Bluetooth version difference?

So far this information regarding the version of bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and USB has not been published that I could find. I am working on confirming these specifications, and will post back with any detail that I may. Thank you, Chris.

The new Evo LTE should still use micro USB like the other Evos, I believe it will be MHL capable which means you can connect the USB to an MHL capable TV, or use an MHL to HDMI adaptor to see the phone on your HDTV.

Re: HTC EVO 4G LTE - Bluetooth Version?

I use a regular USB cable to connect between my phone and MHL to HDMI adaptor, a standard micro USB charger connected to the adaptor to provide power, and an HDMI cable between the adaptor, and the TV. My son loves plugging it up and playing field runners on the TV.

  • Bluetooth 4.0
  • USB 2.0
    • - micro usb connector   
  • Wi-Fi Enabled - 802.11 a/b/g/n

Hope that helps!

Re: HTC EVO 4G LTE - Bluetooth Version?

Any idea why the official HTC page quotes Bluetooth 3+?  I've seen several sites stating it has 4.0 just as you indicated, but it seems odd that the manufacturer's page would be the one that's wrong.

With that still unresolved, it brings up another question:  which is better for a cell phone?  I learned more than I wanted to about bluetooth while searching for an answer and it seems that the advantage of 4.0 is very low power consumption.  The disadvantage of 4.0 is that it's about 90% slower than any of the other bluetooth protocols.  That would be great for things like NikeID that runs off a watch battery and only sends small packets of information.  If you're transferring files from your phone to your computer or someone else's phone, I'd think faster would be better.  I would assume 4.0 is fast enough to stream music or connect to your car's BT?
