Rumors are swirling around the HTC Bolt. Many think it will be the successor of the HTC Thunderbolt that was exclusive for Verizon users and was one of the first 4G LTE handsets the carrier sold.

VentureBeat leaked the first non-digital photos of the device. It looks like 2016’s HTC 10 phone, with a metallic body, a single camera and the logo on the back. Also, it has no headphone jack.

The media outlet says the Bolt will sport a 5.5-inch display, 3GB RAM, 64GB storage, microSD card slot, and 18-megapixel rear camera – the HTC 10 has a 12MP front camera.

The leak also suggests the phone will run Android 7.0 Nougat right out of the box alongside HTC’s Sense Interface. The rumor says the camera will have f/2.0 lens and can capture 4K video.

The bolt will pack HTC’s audio-enhancing, the BoomSound, a tech which is only available when listening with headphones. The bolt also has a fingerprint scanner resting between capacitive buttons on the side and a single USB type-C port.
