HTC does not get off of 2016 without a controversy and it comes out of Sprint with its Bolt smartphone. The controversial Snapdragon 810 that dealt with overheating issues in front of the launch of the HTC One M9 has made its way back into the news, along with 3GB of RAM and the lack of a headphone jack.
It seems that the rest of the world will be getting its piece of the Bolt soon with an event in Taiwan scheduled for November 22. The bet is that we’ll hear the Bolt being called the HTC 10 evo here, an odd naming choice considering that HTC made phones for Sprint that the carrier sold under some derivation of the “EVO” branding.
Funny how the water beads are splashed on in this promo picture — the Bolt is also seemingly IP57 ingress resistant (water of up to 1 meter for 30 minutes)
