New color, specs leak for Sprint’s HTC Bolt


It won’t be long until Sprint goes live with a new HTC phone.

The HTC Bolt will launch next week, according to multiple sources.

We heard over the summer that HTC began working on a device not all that different, at least on the outside, from the HTC 10 from early 2016. Then, in October, the Bolt was spotted in the wild. Both times we saw the phone, the Glacier Silver color was shown; however, now we’re getting two looks at the Bolt in Carbon Gray.

You can see the Bolt in Carbon Gray at the top of this post in an image obtained by TechnoBuffalo, and Phone Arena secured official marketing materials from Sprint revealing some specifications.


Going by Sprint’s marketing materials, the Bolt will have a 5.5-inch Quad HD (2560×1440) display, 16MP / 8MP cameras, and an IP57 water-resistant and dust-resistant metal unibody.

Like the HTC 10, the Bolt will come with both a USB Type-C port and an auxiliary port. Sprint will throw in HTC BoomSound Adaptive Audio earbuds, too, that connect to the USB Type-C port for an enhanced audio experience.

The HTC Bolt is apparently going to be released on November 11 exclusively on Sprint in the United States. Outside of the U.S., the phone will likely be known as the HTC 10 Evo. Regardless of market, people will view the phone as a beefier HTC 10 more than anything else.
