We’ve previously talked about the HTC Evo 4G LTE on numerous occasions and we’ve pretty much established that we love this device and that it’s one of the best handsets to hit the US market this year. Once again, a short recap for those who might not be so up to date with the Evo 4G LTE, (perhaps because the Samsung Galaxy S3 managed to steal the spotlight for a really long period of time) the Evo 4G LTE is Sprint’s take on the already successful HTC One X. What the One X lacks, the Evo 4G LTE managed to fix and improving on an already great device is quite a feat.
However, there’s just one downside with the HTC Evo 4G LTE, and when compared to its distant relative or its competitors, this problem becomes even more visible. It comes with only one color scheme. However, this problem (and I admit it’s a minor one) might just be fixed in the near future. Learn more after the break.
White HTC Evo 4G LTE in the Works?
Judging by a recently posted ad on the Sprint website for a $100 service credit, it looks as if a white HTC Evo 4G LTE might be in the works. Obviously this might just be poor Photoshop work, as we’ve seen before with the Samsung Galaxy Note at Sprint (although there’s still a minimal chance it could happen), but what gives us hope is that in the past the Evo series was no stranger to white models. The HTC Evo 4G received a white back casing after its launch and we can’t find a good reason why Sprint’s current top of the line handset shouldn’t get a white make-up as well.
Shortly after the above picture hit Sprint’s website, Engadget posted what seems to be a leaked internal document that also mentions that the white HTC Evo 4G LTE version is (or was at some point in time) a viable option for Sprint.
However, since there’s nothing certain/official at this point, take this rumor with a grain of salt. I for one will try to keep my hopes up because the Evo 4G LTE definitely deserves the carrier’s attention.
I suppose we’ll have to wait and see how the story develops, and in case we hear more about a white Evo 4G LTE variant, we’ll definitely going to keep you posted, so stay tuned. In the meantime let us know if a white version of the handset is right up your alley, or whether or not you’d rather prefer the already launched black casing.
Thanks AndroidCentral for the heads-up regarding Sprint’s White HTC Evo 4G LTE.
