The HTC 10 Evo comes equipped with a 5.5-inch QHD display along with Corning Gorilla 5 protective layer. Delivering the power to the phone is a rather obsolete Snapdragon 810 that is coupled with 3GB of RAM. On the storage front, the device offers 32GB of onboard memory and supports microSD card slot. The HTC 10 Evo packs in the usual dose of Sense UI along with Android 7.0 Nougat out-of-the-box.

The secondary camera is an 8-Megapixel sensor with the f/2.4 aperture along with features like screen flash. On the connectivity front, the device offers 4G LTE, Wi-Fi, USB Type-C, Bluetooth 4.1, NFC and GPS. The HTC 10 Evo is backed by a 3,200mAh battery and supports Qualcomm Quick Charge 2.0.
