New, 20 comments

China Telecom has received regulatory approval for its version of the HTC One X, dubbed the X720d, which has a slightly different design and support for CDMA and GSM roaming.

China Mobile and China Unicom have already secured their HTC One X variants, but the smaller China Telecom has only just received regulatory approval for its version of the One X. This version, the X720d, looks remarkably similar to Sprint's HTC Evo 4G LTE, though it substitutes Sprint's red highlights and kick stand for a more understated golden motif.

On the technical side, the most notable difference between the X720d and the HTC Evo 4G LTE is the X720d's support for global roaming on GSM networks in addition to China Telecom's CDMA network. The other notable difference is the inclusion of the older, dual-core MSM8660 Snapdragon S3 processor rather than the newer 28mm Krait SoC. Otherwise, the X720d shares the rest of the Evo 4G LTE's features, like the 720p display, 8-megapixel camera, and 16GB of internal storage. It will naturally be running Android 4.0, and is rumored to be released in mid-June.
