The moment that many HTC fans have been waiting for has finally arrived. The Taiwan-based mobile manufacturer has now confirmed that the HTC 10 Evo — the international variant of its Sprint-exclusive smartphone the HTC Bolt — is now available for pre-orders in the region.
According to GSM Arena, the HTC 10 Evo can now be pre-ordered at HTC's Taiwan website for the price of $564 for the 32 GB built-in memory variant and $626 for the 64 GB model. Those who will buy the handset can choose from three different color options: Silver, Gold, and Gunmetal.
In terms of specifications, Android Police has stated that everything under the HTC 10 Evo hood will come with the same specs as the HTC Bolt from Sprint, which is only available for that specific mobile carrier in the United States.
The HTC 10 Evo is going to be powered by Qualcomm's previous-generation octa-core System on Chip (SoC), the Snapdragon 810. It is going to be supported by 3GB of RAM with a battery capacity of 3,200mAh.
As for its outside specs, it has been confirmed that the HTC 10 Evo will sport a 5.5-inch screen capable of producing 2560×1440 QHD (Quad HD) of display resolution. It was also said that the handset is going to be released with a fingerprint scanner on the front.
Lastly, the smartphone is expected to have a 16 megapixel rear camera which will be equipped with Optical Image Stabilization technology as well as a dual-LED flash, and an 8MP front-facing snapper for the selfie lovers.
Unfortunately, HTC still hasn't confirmed whether or not the HTC 10 Evo will come to other markets aside from Taiwan, particularly in Europe.
With that said, it's best for the fans to wait for further news coming from the manufacturer regarding the matter and hope that the updates for the smartphone are released sooner rather than later.
