Right now, HTC is expected to release a new Android 7.0 nougat-powered smartphone this month and soon to be official, the HTC Bolt.

"You may think that the Google Pixel and Pixel XL actually claim that title since they're probably being made by HTC too," the post noted. "However there's no actual HTC branding on those phones, so they don't count. And, in fact, they go one better anyway, with Android 7.1."

Leaked photos of HTC latest smartphone are surfacing online which has given us a first close up look. It seems like HTC 10 and HTC bolt have in common when it comes to form and appearance.
