While HTC is expected to launch its HTC Bolt smartphone which is Sprint exclusive in the US market, new rumors are claiming that the unlocked variant of the smartphone could get launched with the name HTC 10 Evo in global markets.
Recently, famous leakster Evan Blass has posted a tweet indicating that the company will market the HTC Bolt smartphone as the HTC 10 Evo in the global markets. The alleged HTC Bolt/HTC 10 Evo smartphone was certified by FCC in last week with a model number 2PYB200.
If the leaked renders of the HTC Bolt/HTC 10 Evo are to be believed, the upcoming mobile has ditched the 3.5mm headphone jack following the Apple iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. It will be the first smartphone from HTC to omit the 3.5mm headphone jack from its device. After Apple, smartphone makers like LeEco and Motorola also removed the 3.5mm jack from their flagship smartphone devices. Considering this, the upcoming mobiles could adapt the developing trend. However, the consumers will surely need some time to get used to such change.
The upcoming mobile, HTC 10 Evo is expected to feature a 5.5-inch HD (1080×1920 pixels) display. According to the speculations, the upcoming mobile will be equipped with a Snapdragon 810 processor paired with Adreno 430 GPU and a 3GB RAM. The device will offer 64GB of internal storage. Also, the smartphone is believed to come with HTC’s Boom Sound technology. If true, the Snapdragon 810 processor is a bit outdated chipset and is heavily criticized for its overheating issues. Even, most of the smartphones offered by its rivals come equipped with an improved Snapdragon 820 processor.
On the camera front, the HTC 10 Evo is expected to feature an 18MP or 12MP primary rear camera alongside an 8MP or 5MP front facing the camera. The primary camera is expected to support 4K video recording. The connectivity option will include 4G LTE, USB Type-C, Bluetooth, and Wi-Fi. The smartphone is expected to run on latest Android 7.0 Nougat OS.
