Blass: HTC Bolt headed for Sprint next month
This is going to be one mad dash of a few weeks coming up for HTC, especially as it hits the floor against LG V20 availability. First, there are the Desire 10 phones that are scheduled for launch on September 20, oriented toward mid-range markets. Then we have the Google Pixel phones that HTC made which are due on October 4. Finally, we’re hearing of an “HTC Bolt” that may or may not be a phone — we strongly believe it to be one — that may or may not remind us of the Thunderbolt (pictured above) that launched with Verizon’s LTE service in 2011.
Well, the trademark may pay off for us in the tech circles after all.
Evan Blass has retweeted an article from The Droid Guy and added that the Bolt will land on Sprint next month.

The article relates back to the application filed with the US Patent and Trademark Office for the term. No details on the device just yet, but we’ll keep an eye out for replies.
Funny, by the way, how the V20 avoids Sprint and this is the only carrier disclosure so far for the Bolt.
Update: This article has been updated to mention the HTC Thunderbolt.
