When’s the last time you saw a HTC phone with a numeric keypad? Well, some Chinese knockoff phone manufacturers thought it would be a good idea to make use of HTC’s success to style their own imitation phones. Instead of outright stealing the HTC name, they changed it to “HTE” and slapped it onto some feature phone that looks nothing like a HTC phone. In addition to the brand name, they decided to give it “HTE Sense” and Sprint 4G, which is funny considering how the carrier is nowhere to be found in that part of the world.
No word on what the phone is like when it’s turned on, but we know it packs a 3-megapixel camera (if the label is to be believed). Though I wouldn’t be surprised if it ran an operating system that looks like an iOS knockoff.
