Update: The EVO’s 30FPS Limitation is an Incurable Hardware Restriction

After publishing a story yesterday on the pesky frame rate issue that is plaguing the HTC EVO, I was informed by the individual at HTC who originally provided me with the information for yesterday’s article that my story was not entirely correct.

The 30FPS restriction on the HTC EVO is, in fact, a hardware limitation that “is a result of how the device [was] architected in order to support a screen and an HDMI output. This is not something that can be reworked by any sort of software [update].”

Well, boys and girls, there you have it. The HTC EVO 4G, HTC’s flagship Android device, is limited to 30FPS due to the inclusion of an infrequently used HDMI port.

Unless you root.
