White HTC Evo 4G LTE, red Samsung Galaxy S3 coming July 15

The colored phone craze continues with both AT&T and Sprint releasing a red Samsung Galaxy S3 and white HTC Evo 4G LTE, respectively.


More choice is often a good thing and both HTC and Samsung seem to agree. A new white version of the HTC Evo 4G LTE and red model of the Samsung Galaxy S III (S3) are just around the corner.

You can't deny the HTC Evo 4G LTE has style galore, but what if its original jet black hue doesn't float your boat? Not to worry, Sprint will launch an all-white flavor of the superphone July 15.

When I reviewed the HTC Evo 4G LTE a few months back, I was struck by the phone's premium style and dare I say BlackBerry-like built quality. Even though the handset sported flashy red accents and chrome trim, its business black paint job may not be playful enough for some.

Enter the Evo 4G LTE in white, which for the same $199.99 price tag has a gleaming white chassis instead. The phone will also flaunt silver highlights plus a silver kickstand. Not to be outdone in the fun smartphone color game, AT&T will also sell a new $199.99 Garnet Red version of Samsung's Galaxy S3, also on Sunday July 15. Looks like this coming weekend could be a busy one for Android fans looking for more design spice.
