HTC is weighing options so that they can put their company back on track. HTC one time used to be top in terms of smartphone manufacturing and it replaced Nokia in 2011. But with the arrival of Chinese OEMs like Huawei, ZTE, Xiaomi, Meizu and others it lost the plot.
The popular leakster Evan Blass on Twitter says that the Taiwanese smartphone giant doesn’t want to end up as next Nokia and so they are preparing for HTC Bolt. Just like HTC 10, it will be HTC Bolt smartphone. Resemblance in naming comes with HTC Thunderbolt which was a popular device in 2011.
Evan officially tweeted –

Earlier this rumors, there was rumors of Desire 10 Pro and Desire 10 Lifestyle. They are likely to be launched on September 20. The HTC Bolt is expected to be announced next month and availability is planned sometime in the month of November.
HTC is also rumored to be manufacturing the Google 2016 Nexus device and this time it will not be a Nexus device as Google has plans to unveil them with a new name called as “Pixel”.
I think that if HTC want to be into market, then they should make their device available as soon as possible after launch. People don’t like waiting. Look at iPhone 7, it was launch on September, it was opened for pre-order from September 9 and shipping started from September 15.
