SD810 HTC 10 evo is official: the international version of HTC Bolt will only be available online


The rumor mill once again hit it straight on the head! Just as we expected, HTC today announced the latest smartphone in its portfolio, the HTC 10 evo. However, this is where all the novelties end – this device is essentially an international version of its recent HTC Bolt, which is exclusively available on Sprint.

So, what is the HTC 10 evo, in a nutshell? Long story short, it's a full-metal, water-resistant Snapdragon 810-equipped 5.5-incher that has no 3.5mm headphone jack yet makes up for that by employing HTC's Boomsound Adaptive Audio tech and boasting a pair of adaptive USB Type-C earphones in the box. Unlike the Bolt, which was only available in Silver and Gunmetal colors, the 10 evo also comes in Gold. Another notable feature is the Gorilla Glass 5-covered Quad HD display as well as the 8MP wide-angle selfie snapper which has its own front-facing flash sidekick. 

Oh, we almost forgot - similar to the HTC Bolt, the HTC 10 evo arrives with Android 7.0 Nougat right out of the box.


The HTC 10 evo will be available in Europe (including the UK) exclusively online. That's right, no carrier will be offering this device in its stores across the Old Continent - you will have to order it from HTC's online store. This is a first for the Taiwan-based manufacturer, which has deep roots of partnering with multiple carriers. 

The HTC 10 evo is likely going to sell for £450 - £500 in the UK and probably cost anywhere in-between EUR450 - 500 in the rest of Europe, though the latter is mostly speculation on our part. The exact release date, or should we say online availability of the device, is not known at the time.

I think HTC should really work on their pricing. 600$ for last year's hardware while you can get the OnePlus 3T 128GB for 480$, it has the latest of this year's hardware.

Agreed, if this was below $400 then it would've been a great deal

Don't compare HTC to a low quality company like Oneplus. I owned a Oneplus and I replace the screen 4 times for touch issue which was a common issue. also there software never felt stable

Because HTC have never had any issues with their quality control, right? From the One X's dead screen problems, to the M8's loose volume buttons or the screen wasnt flush with the speaker grills, plus the extreme overheating of the M9 and the camera glass shattering. I am not saying that HTC phones lack quality, but don't make it sound as if they are perfect and have never had any quality control issues. And since when is OP considered a low quality company?

Mind you, I had owned all three of those phones you've mentioned. The one x's problem was just it's battery life. I had never had any issue with my m8. The m9 does overheat but not to an extent that I couldn't touch and use it the whole time, the issue I only have with my m9 is the chamfered edges are scrapping off it's paint leaving it uncomfortable to hold. But other than that, I would consider htc's build quality as one of the best out there

Since they have been around. You don't buy those type of specs on a phone for that low of a price without a catch. There is a reason those phones costs much less than their competition yet supposedly surpass their specs. ZTE, Blu, OP. they might not be low quality but they are definitely the KIA and Hyundai of the phone world

You should never compare a mainstream company with OnePlus. You can go to a store and buy the HTC, you can barely find in any stores the OnePlus, no local in store support etc. So comparing this crappy phone to any similarly priced LG/Samsung/Sony is why this phone is overpriced s**t. I seriously hope someone buys this company and fire every single person thats not a designer/engineer. Basically fire all the decision making people.

Troubled old chip incased in a body without 3.5 mm jack more expensive than brilliant HTC 10. Honestly it reminds me of some kind of David Lynch film, it's captivatimg story but I have no clue what is going on. Twin Peaks...

It seems to be under control now considering this is using v2 of the chip and Phonescoop's review shows that it performs almost as well as the 820s in many tasks. Battery life is also reported to be quite good as is the camera.

Who wants to buy an SD810 phone in 2016, a processor that never was very good even when it first came out, either over heating or draining the battery?

Looks like a suicide attempt from HTC. Have they hired that back-stabber of Nokia, the Stephen Elop now???
