Tweaked HTC EVO 4G LTE gains global GSM capabilities – heading to China Telecom

Tweaked HTC EVO 4G LTE gains global GSM capabilities – heading to China Telecom

Question: What do you get when you take the HTC EVO 4G LTE, remove the kick-stand, give it some gold trip, add global GSM capabilities and swap out its S4 chip for last year’s S3 chip?

Answer: China Telecom’s new HTC X720d.

According to the latest report, the HTC X720d will be heading to China Telecom in mid-June. The handset will look like the new Sprint HTC EVO 4G LTE, but it seems HTC is looking to cut the cost of the device by equipping it with a slightly less powerful Qualcomms Snapdragon S3 chip which was used in the majority of last year’s flagship devices. Like the EVO 4G LTE, the HTC X720d will still features a 4.7-inch 720p display, 8-megapixel camera, Android 4.0, HTC Sense 4.0, and 16GB of internal storage, but the real selling point will probably be the dual GSM and CDMA connectivity which will allow China Telecom’s customers to use the phone on nearly any network across the globe.

China Telecom has not announced a price for the HTC X720d, but expect it to be significantly less than the HTC One X and its variants currently available in Europe and North America.
