Later this year, the HTC Bolt will launch exclusively on Sprint’s network.
We have an image of the device that we’re sharing with you today.
The image, which comes from Evan Blass, shows the upcoming Bolt from HTC that will become an exclusive offering for Sprint customers. It feels like a slightly tweaked HTC 10 and not much else. Up front, the camera and sensors have been moved around. And, on the back, the two-tone LED flash sits above the camera. From the outside, it really is just an HTC 10 with minor changes.
One thing that people around the web are speculating is whether or not an auxiliary port is present. Based on what we can see, the USB Type-C port might be solo.
Maybe the Bolt will end up being a watered-down HTC 10 or a repackaged Desire 10, which was announced this week as a device for European markets.
We should point out that the Bolt is not going to be a ThunderBolt successor in any way. While both are carrier exclusives, the Bolt aligns itself closer to the company’s 2016 flagship. The names are merely similar and nothing more.
If the date on the phone is any indication, the HTC Bolt will be launched or released by HTC and Sprint on October 18.
