HTC Evo 3D (Shooter) and Samsung Galaxy S Plus to be launched by Telstra soon?

Here’s some good news for Android lovers over in Australia: Telstra, the country’s largest mobile carrier, is getting ready to launch two new high-end Android handsets (both running Gingerbread).

Firstly, Ausdroid reports that Telstra is secretly testing the so-called HTC Shooter, which seems to be that GSM edition of Sprint’s Evo 3D that we’ve been hearing about in the last few months.

The launch of the Shooter / Evo 3D via Telstra isn’t confirmed yet, but Australian customers would surely want to have this handset, since it comes with a qHD 3D display, 1.2GHz dual-core processor, and a 5MP camera with 3D video recording.

The second new Android smartphone that’s reportedly headed to Telstra is the Samsung Galaxy S Plus i9001 – yes, the improved version (1.4GHz processor, 1650 mAh battery)  of the Galaxy S i9000 that was released last year.

We know that Telstra also plans to launch the Galaxy S II i9100 (sometime in July), so it will probably offer the Galaxy S Plus as a cheaper alternative to the S II.
