Today, HTC is launching the HTC 10 evo as the the first all-metal unibody, water-resistant Android phone in Europe.

Coupled with optimal image stabilization, the 16MP rear camera gives best shots for photo lovers Selfies couldn't be better with its 8MP auto-focus front camera, as reviewed by Android Authority. Sprint is selling the HTC Bolt for $600, though, and so it wouldn't be a surprise to see HTC 10 evo carry a similar price tag internationally. One of the HTC 10's clever features allows you to set up a personalised audio profile, but this requires the user to listen to a bunch of tones and report back. The phone comes in to fill the gap between the HTC 10 and HTC One A9 that was released on the back of HTC One M9. For camera-work, you're looking at a 16-megapixel rear sensor and an 8-megapixel front-facing camera.

The phone will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 2.0 GHz octa-core processor which nearly two generations behind the chipset introduced in many companies' flagship device. The phone gets a 3,300 mAH battery.

The HTC Desire 650 smartphone is equipped with some features which for one is the "Night Mode". The handset, dubbed the HTC 10 evo, features a large 5.5-inch Super LCD 3 display with quad HD resolution and a pixel density of 534 ppi.

On several occasions, he was able to pull defenders toward him and find an open teammate, only for them to badly miss the shot. Houston sends everything through Harden, lets him score and create virtually all their points, and wins on the offensive end.

The HTC 10 Evo, which is known as the HTC Bolt in the US, is more than a typical midrange handset. Price-wise, it easily trumps the HTC 10 Evo, which is expected to retail for between £450 and £500 in the UK. It is also not surprising that 7.1.1 is already in testing for the flagship phones from Google. This comes paired with 3GB RAM and 32GB storage, which can be expanded up to 2TB via the onboard microSD slot. HTC is including wired headphones in the box.

Another impressive feature of the HTC 10 evo is its adaptive audio, thanks to the HTC BoomSound Adaptive Audio technology, microphones with noise cancelation, and Hi-Res Audio stereo recording.

OnePlus has also "refreshed" its flagship-specced, midrange-priced OnePlus 3, following the more conventional formula of "same chassis, faster engine". The handset will come loaded with HTC's latest version of the SENSE UI atop an Android 6.0 core. HTC continues to play with its flash placement, and for the Bolt, relocates the phone's dual-LED flash to directly above the camera.
