The Bolt, HTC’s latest smartphone, has leaked a second time, coming again courtesy of VentureBeat Editor Evan Blass.


The first time we saw this device, the information that was available suggested the Bolt was likely to be exclusive to U.S. carrier Sprint. This leak, however, indicates HTC’s newest smartphone may come to Canada.

According to Blass, the Bolt is “expected to be available globally.” Moreover, he says it’s coming sometime this month.


While it looks like the HTC 10, the Bolt is mid-range device, reports Blass. It features a 5.5-inch 1080p display (making it slightly bigger than the 10), 3GB of RAM, 64GB of expandable storage, front-facing fingerprint scanner, a USB-C port and Android Nougat.

More notably, like the Moto Z and iPhone 7, it does not have a 3.5mm headphone jack.
