HTC who recently unveiled the Bolt for the US market has now officially launched the device in the international market as the HTC 10 evo. Compared to the original HTC 10, this smartphone comes with a new water, splash and dust resistant design, and an upgraded audio feature called the HTC BoomSound adaptive audio.
The BoomSound adaptive technology instantly adapts the audio to the sound levels surrounding the user, thanks to the bundled USB Type-C dual adaptive earphones for an illuminating audio experience. For example, while taking a train into a city, the adaptive earphones can adjust to the noisier environment. This gives the user a clean and realistic audio experience. It should be noted that the smartphone doesn’t sport a 3.5mm audio port.
The HTC 10 evo features a large 5.5-inch Super LCD 3 screen with QHD resolution. The IP57 rating ensures that the device is resistant to accidental dunks or spills. Furthermore, the device has been subjected to a grueling test of drops, bend, scratch, submersion, climate and corrosion tests to ensure exceptional build quality. The 5.5-inch display is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5.
The smartphone also holds a 16MP camera on the rear with OIS to reduce camera shakes. The phase detection AF achieves a focus speed of 0.3 seconds. The Pro mode of the camera enables users to capture in RAW format files, and manual control almost allows us to control any aspect of the camera settings. The front 8MP camera features an Auto HDR mode.
The HTC 10 evo is powered by the Snapdragon 810 processor with 3GB RAM and 32GB internal storage with Android 7.0 Nougat installed out of the box. Several new features include split screen view, quicker multitasking, new security features, and more. The device also holds a MicroSD card slot. The fingerprint sensor on the HTC 10 evo recognizes your finger in just 0.2 seconds.
The smartphone is backed up by a large 3200 mAh battery that should last all the operations for a day and more. The Qualcomm Quick Charge technology ensures a fast recharge so users will not need to wait for a full battery status. The HTC 10 evo will be available in Gun Metal, Glacier Silver, and Pearl Gold colors, and will hit the UAE stores soon. We will update you regarding the prices as soon as it goes official here.
