HTC Rider unveils itself as the HTC EVO 4G+
The mystery of the HTC Rider has finally been solved! HTC has unveiled the HTC EVO 4G+ for the Korean market. From what we can gather, the HTC EVO 4G+ is essentially an HTC EVO 3D without the 3D. It comes equipped with a 4.3-inch qHD display, dual-core 1.2 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, 8 megapixel camera capable or recording video in 1080p, front-facing camera for video chat, and what appears to be the same exterior body of the HTC EVO 3D (save for the lack of a second camera on the back). Other specs on the HTC EVO 4G+ include WiBro (Korea’s WiMax network), 14.4Mbps HSPA+ running on the 900MHz and 2100MHz bands, 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth 3.0.
HTC has not revealed an official launch date or price point for the HTC EVO 4G+, but we’d expect those to come within the next few weeks. While it’s nice to see another HTC handset hit the Korean market, we’re officially stumped as to why HTC would release the EVO 4G+ and Sensation in the same market since they are now essentially the same phone. The only real difference between the two handsets is the WiBro connectivity offered on the HTC EVO 4G+.
