HTC Evo 4G+ (Rider) leaks on its way to Korea
Last month we first heard about the existence of the HTC Rider, a smartphone that was supposedly headed to KT in Korea, and we even saw a rendered image of it. And today we get more details about it, alongside another image that kind of looks like the first one, but kind of doesn’t.
Anyway, the HTC Rider will be sold in Korea under the name Evo 4G+ (because “4G” just isn’t enough anymore, it seems), as Rider was just its codename. The Evo 4G+ will basically be an Evo 3D without the 3D – so just one camera instead of two, and a plain old 2D display.
It will also support Korea’s flavor of WiMax, called WiBro, 14.4 Mbps HSPA, 802.11n Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth. The Evo 4G+ will have a 4.3-inch qHD (960×540) capacitive touchscreen, a dual-core 1.2 GHz processor, 1 GB of RAM, an 8 MP camera with LED flash and 1080p HD video recording, and a 1.3 MP front-facing camera. The 2D/3D toggle seen in the Evo 3D has been repurposed to be a photo/video toggle for the camera.
There are no details about a release date or pricing, but we expect those to come pretty soon, so stay tuned.
