HTC unveiled HTC 10 Evo, the global version of a smartphone previously offered exclusively by US operator Sprint (as HTC Bolt).
Features are the same as Bolt, and include metal unibody and Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor. This is a downgrade from the Snapdragon 820 chip used in HTC 10.
The device will ship with a pair of USB-C earbuds as it does not have a headphone jack – an increasingly common trend for smartphone makers.
The phone is being pitched as a “sub-flagship” and while HTC did not reveal prices, its cost is expected to be similar to the Bolt, which retails for around $600.
Other features include IP57 dust and waterproofing rating and an 8-megapixel front-facing camera with panoramic selfie mode. It has a 5.5-inch 2K screen, 16MP front camera, and 32GB of onboard storage (with microSD slot).
Colours are gunmetal, silver, and gold.
The OnePlus 3T, available for $439 in the US and coming soon to Europe, will likely provide competition to the 10 Evo with not just a lower price but better features, such as a Snapdragon 821 processor and 6GB of RAM (instead of 3GB for HTC 10 Evo).
