In a Tuesday announcement, smartphone maker HTC said that its 'HTC Bolt' handset - which was launched as a Sprint-exclusive handset on November 11 - will be called 'HTC 10 Evo' by the rest of the world.

The announcement implies that other than their different names, the HTC Bolt and the HTC 10 Evo handsets will come with identical specifications.

As such, the HTC 10 Evo, like the HTC Bolt, will feature a 5.5-inch S-LCD screen with 1,440 x 2,560 pixel display resolution and protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5. The handset will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor clocked at 2.0 GHz.

The Evo will boast a full metal unibody, but will also be dust-, water- and splash-resistant; thanks to its IP57 certification. The handset will run on Google's latest Android OS version 7.0 'Nougat' straight out of the box.

Some of the other notable features of the HTC 10 Evo handset include 3GB of RAM; a 16-megapixel rear camera; an 8-megapixel front-facing camera; a 3,200 mAh battery; Quick Charge technology; a fingerprint sensor on the home button; and 32GB of onboard storage capacity, expandable to up to 2 TB with a microSD card.
