HTC 10 Evo launched in India at Rs 48,990, comes with Android Nougat & no headphone jack

HTC launched its new flagship phone, called the HTC 10 Evo, in India on Thursday at a price of Rs 48,990. The HTC 10 Evo, which is simply the global variant of the HTC Bolt, will be available for buying from the company's online store.

The HTC 10 Evo looks a lot like the HTC 10. It shares the HTC 10's all-familiar chamfers, but misses out on a 3.5mm audio jack. The company will be shipping a USB Type-C dongle in the box, thankfully. 

Also, the HTC 10 Evo is the company's first all-metal phone to come with IP57 certification which makes it dust and water resistant. The phone also supports what HTC calls BoomSound Adaptive Audio.

The phone however ships with dated hardware: a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 under the hood coupled with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal memory which is further expandable via a microSD card slot.

The HTC 10 Evo comes with a 5.5-inch QuadHD screen (protected by Corning's Gorilla Glass 5) and runs Android 7.0 Nougat-based Sense UI out-of-the-box. 

The 4G LTE capable phone is backed by a 3,200 mAh battery and supports Qualcomms Quick Charge 2.0 technology. It sports a 16-megapixel rear camera with OIS alongside an 8-megapixel front-facing camera.

HTC is also looking to bring the Vive VR headset to India in the days to come. "We are looking at it. We are working on a plan to get the Vive (Consumer Edition), hopefully soon in the next few months. There has been an issue of supply. It's very much in demand in some of the countries that we have launched it: in China, US and in Europe. That's why we had to delay the India launch. We were looking to launch it this year but we'll probably have to wait a few more months," Faisal Siddiqui who is president for HTC South Asia had confirmed to India Today Tech in November
