Just recently, it was confirmed that the HTC Bolt will not be sold in Canada thanks to the fact that the phone is exclusive to U.S.’ Sprint network.
This is something that many did not like, especially given that the HTC Bolt carries some of the best specs around covered by an excellent body. However, the latest reports will make these same people happy again.
According to a well-known tipster, the new HTC Bolt will be sold in Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) as the HTC 10 Evo. This is great news for those who were looking to get their hands on this phone, only that the Bolt part will not be included on the phone. However, the HTC 10 Evo will keep all the specs and features of the HTC Bolt, so, there is really nothing to worry about.
It is not the first time a phone has been launched in the U.S. with a different name and sold in other markets under a different moniker. It happens a lot with the likes of Motorola Droid Turbo, among others.
This is not the first time we’ve heard of an HTC 10 Evo. In fact, another renowned leaker, Evan Blass, came in with this info quite some time back and with the latest details, it only serves to cement this earlier rumor. One problem with this revelation is that it doesn’t state a date as to when the HTC Bolt will make its debut outside the U.S.
As for the specs, the HTC 10 Evo has a 5.5-inch QHD screen – meaning you get a 2560 x 1440 pixels resolution – whereas the processor on board is last year’s flagship – the Snapdragon 810. You also get last year’s flagship RAM of 3GB alongside 32GB of inbuilt storage. The rear of the HTC 10 Evo carries a 16MP snapper with f/2.2 aperture, OIS, and dual-LED flash. As for the selfies, you get an 8MP sensor.
Other specs and features include a fingerprint scanner, 3200mAh battery with support for Quick Charge 2.0 technology, IP57 water and dust resistance certification, as well as Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box. Keep in mind that the HTC 10 Evo will come your way without a 3.5mm headphone port, meaning you won’t be able to use your current headphones without an adapter. The phone comes with a pair of USB-C headphones with BoomSound Adaptive audio technology.
In the U.S., the HTC Bolt is priced at $600 (2-year contract of $25 per month), but there is still no word on what the price will be in other markets. Stay tuned and we’ll update you.
