Silver HTC Bolt leaks in the clearest picture yet - looks almost identical to the HTC 10

Less than a week ago, we heard that HTC could soon release a new flagship device in the USA, reportedly called the HTC Bolt. The Bolt will allegedly be released in the USA by Sprint, and if the rumors are to be believed, it could be a flagship device.

Although we seem to know nothing about the features and the specs of the mysterious HTC Bolt, insightful leakster Evan Blass seemingly delivered in terms of the handset's design — we get to see the device in a clear picture, pictured in silver, and it doesn't take a genius to spot that it's taking lots of design inspiration from the not-too-shabby HTC 10.

The differences are minor - the selfie camera on the HTC Bolt is to the left of the earpiece, while the one on the HTC 10 is to the right; the flash is a bit above the camera lens, while the one on the HTC 10 is to the right of the sensor. Additionally, we see two trays on the left side of the device - one for the SIM card and the other one most certainly for a microSD card. 

Also, we know it's just a leaked render, but it seems like the HTC Bolt does not have a 3.5mm audio jack, or at least doesn't seem to have one. It could be just us but the render definitely raises some flags. We'll live, we'll see.

So far, so good, but when this HTC Bolt might see the light of day? Seeing the October 18 date on the render's home screen, we might speculate that the device will either be announced or released on that date.  

By the way, yesterday HTC released two new Desire 10 phones - you can check them out right here. In case we learn anything else about the HTC Bolt, rest assured we will share it with you!

It looks like it might have a bigger display then the HTC10. The flash change is ugly though...

I'll wait for the HTC Ocean until I consider a HTC device again.
