It seems the rumors were true; Froyo is indeed right around the corner from hitting the EVO 4G. In an official announcement, Sprint revealed August 3rd as the date that the EVO 4G will receive the long awaited Android 2.2 OS update.

Dubbing themselves "the first wireless carrier to bring the latest version of Android to its customers," this is indeed a big step forward as Froyo has only been available to certain unlocked phones to this point. Some listed features and enhancements include Voice Dialing Over Bluetooth, Application Storage on External Memory, 4-way camera rotation, and Improved Browser Performance including a faster JavaScript engine and Flash 10x Support.

 

The rollout is coming over the air in "waves" and all EVO 4G owners should be Froyo capable by the middle of August.
