HTC reportedly had filed for the trademark of “HTC Bolt”. Now Evan Blass (@evleaks), who is known for his quite reliable leaks, has tweeted an image, which he claimed to be of HTC Bolt smartphone (See above). Evan Blass had earlier claimed that the HTC Bolt smartphone will be launched next month (October 18) in the USA.
The phone looks quite similar to the previously launched HTC 10 but is said to have few changes like LED flash now placed above the camera and the front-facing camera has also moved around. Moreover, HTC Bolt reportedly will not have 3.5mm headphone jack, so most likely users will have to use its USB Type-C port for music listening as well.
The smartphone reportedly will have all-metal unibody deign and a fingerprint scanner which will be integrated on the home button.
The HTC Bolt is said to be the successor of HTC Thunderbolt smartphone which was released way back in 2011. To recall, The HTC ThunderBolt (ADR6400L code-name “Mecha”) was the first 4G LTE smartphone on the Verizon Wireless network. It was a CDMA/LTE variant of the HTC Desire HD.
