HTC 10 EVO launches November 22 as a rebranded Bolt
Whenever a company drops a major smartphone, there’s a good chance it will get a wide release, even if it’s an exclusive initially. Enter the HTC 10 EVO, which is tipped to be the international variant of the recently released HTC Bolt.
Not long ago, we introduced you to the HTC Bolt. The handset debuted with little love through Sprint, and we have covered it several times since it first hit the rumor mill. HTC has sent out invitations for an event taking place in Taiwan on November 22 where they will introduce a new smartphone. All signs point towards the HTC 10 EVO, which according to the rumor mill, is a re-branded version of Sprint’s Bolt.
Unless there are some big changes afoot, the HTC 10 EVO should have the same innards as the Bolt. In a nutshell, that means it sports an octa-core Snapdragon 810 and 3GB of RAM under the hood. It has 32GB of expandable storage and the camera combo is solid at 16MP on the back and 8MP in the front. Other features include 4G LTE, a Fingerprint Scanner, Bluetooth 4.1, Wi-Fi and a Type-C USB port. That said, the international model could have a different processor under the hood or a few other minor alterations.
If the HTC 10 EVO is actually the Bolt in disguise, international consumers will have an interesting option soon. The Bolt’s price (and the carrier) put a damper on this one out of the gate, but a launch in other locales with a different price point could rack up some sales.
