Update [October 22, 2016]: New rumors give the HTC Bolt a name, an official name that the devic ewill known to consumer, and a solid name we must say. The HTC Bolt could launch as HTC 10 Evo, banking on the goodwill of both the HTC 10 and HTC Evo sets from long ago which has some good reputation back then. Do we like the new name, HTC 10 Evo, well we do. What about you? The news comes from Evleaks, one of the most trusted source of news as you could find.
BTW, what’s more intriguing to know is why the comeback of Evo brand? Does it have a special camera, or new connectivity feature that Evo 4G was known for. Or simply the return of the kickstand? The specs leaked till date don’t highlight any very distinguishing feature that would warrant the Evo tag, so let’s see how this all shapes up.
