In mid-June, we were tipped-off to the forthcoming arrival of a new white version of HTC’s EVO 4G LTE on Sprint, revealed in a leaked screenshot of a system tracking the carrier’s warehouse inventory. Just a couple days later, Sprint itself seemed to acknowledge the model’s existence, putting up an ad on its site advertising both the EVO 4G LTE and the Epic 4G Touch (pictured above), with both models depicted in white. We were wondering if that meant Sprint would soon follow-up with official confirmation of the model, but instead it quickly modified the image to display the standard black EVO 4G LTE. We’re still waiting for the carrier to acknowledge the handset, but a new leak suggests that day could nearly be upon us, revealing plans to start sales of the phone in just over a week.
According to this document, Sprint will introduce the white EVO 4G LTE on Sunday, July 15. Pricing looks set to be at the same level as the existing black EVO 4G LTE, going for just about $200 on-contract.
If you can settle for some older hardware, it also appears that Sprint will be kicking-off a month long promotion on the Samsung Epic 4G Touch; buy one for $100 on-contract, and the second handset’s free.
