From 2010 to 2012, HTC had a pretty successful series of Sprint-exclusive smartphones that shared the “Evo” name: HTC Evo 4G, HTC Evo 3D, HTC Evo 4G LTE, and so on. This name might be making a comeback, but, surprisingly, not on Sprint. Various speculations surrounding the device have been spotted all over the internet. HTC, which is one of the biggest names when it comes to the world of Android technology, has been innovating the markets when it comes to the design element. They were the name behind the Google Pixel devices too. The company’s next big project, the HTC Bolt might actually release as: HTC 10 Evo.
According Evan Blass (@evleaks), “HTC 10 evo” may be the global name of the HTC Bolt – an unannounced handset that should be released soon by Sprint, possibly becoming HTC’s first modern smartphone not to have a 3.5 mm headset jack. While HTC has yet to confirm the existence of the Bolt, we’ve already seen images of it, and it looks like the phone kind of resembles the HTC 10, tough it’s going to be larger, as it’s expected to sport a 5.5-inch display. We don’t know if the display of the Bolt is a 1080p, or a Quad HD (1440 x 2560 pixels) one – the rumor mill supports both variants. Other features should include Android 7.0 Nougat, 3 GB of RAM, 64 GB of storage space which will be expandable through a micro SD memory card, and – curiously – a Snapdragon 810 processor.
Sprint could launch the HTC Bolt as soon as this month, but it’s not clear when the phone’s global variant – presumably the HTC 10 evo – will be available. Nevertheless, we’ll be here to let you know more about HTC’s upcoming handset as soon as new info is unveiled. Comment below and let us know what you think of the upcoming HTC handset.
