Following the mishap with the launch of the HTC EVO 4G LTE by Sprint due to a litigation-related import delay, the HTC flagship device has finally been released in the US market. In the hopes of pushing the sale, Sprint has come out with an amazing offer.
Through Amazon Wireless, the HTC EVO 4G LTE can be yours for just $49.99 with a 2-year contract. Unfortunately, this offer is valid only for new Sprint customers, with existing customers required to pay the “full” $149.99 required if you choose to upgrade to this device.
As a quick recap, here are the specifications of Sprint’s flagship device:
- 1.5Ghz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor
- 1GB RAM
- 4.7″ S-LCD Display
- 16GB internal storage, expandable via microSD
- 8MP rear camera, 1.3 MP front camera
- Beats Audio
- Android 4.0 with HTC Sense 4.0
- 2,000 mAH battery
With the Samsung Galaxy S3 also available, US consumers are certainly spoiled with choice when it comes to high-end Android devices. With the Galaxy S3 featuring 2GB of RAM, Samsung’s flagship has the edge over the One X and its variant, the EVO 4G LTE. But there are some other factors that come into play, such as cost, and for what I’m assuming will be a short term only, the EVO 4G LTE for new Sprint customers should be the front runner.
What are your thoughts? Will the bargain price be enough for you to switch to Sprint? Will you be picking up the HTC EVO 4G LTE? Let us know in the comments section below.
