Earlier this week, a leak outed what appeared to be a new white version of HTC’s EVO 4G LTE on Sprint, showing the phone’s presence in an internal inventory control system. At the time, we had to guess what the phone would look like, doing a quick recoloring on the existing black EVO 4G LTE. While Sprint has yet to officially announce the pending arrival of this new white version, it looks like the carrier may have just accidentally released the first image of the handset, as spotted in a new promotional banner.
Sprint invites users to check out a new EVO 4G LTE or Epic 4G Touch, saving $100 on either device when porting your phone number over from another carrier. The depiction of both phones shows them with white facades, and while the white Epic 4G Touch is old news, the carrier may have just confirmed the upcoming release of the white EVO 4G LTE.
We’re still wondering when Sprint might hope to make such a handset available at retail, and so far there haven’t been any hints at exactly when that might be. With the phone already appearing in promo images, though (and considering Sprint has yet to take down the offending image), we really wouldn’t be that surprised to get official word of this new color variant any day now. Maybe the real question is why both versions weren’t available from launch.
