Even though we don’t know exactly when the HTC Bolt will make its debut, we already had the chance to find out details about the handset’s specs, as the design was already revealed, in some way or another. What makes it special is the fact that it will be the manufacturer’s first handset to ditch the 3.5 mm jack, continuing a trend started by Apple last month, with the iPhone 7, as well as Motorola and LeEco.
If until now we only saw some renders, a set of images with the actual HTC Bolt made a rounds online, revealing an overall design similar to the HTC 10.
The physical home button isn’t missing, but it won’t integrate the fingerprint scanner, which, this time, is located under the display, between the capacitive buttons. A pretty weird move, if you ask us, since integrating it into the home button would’ve been way better.
The handset has a single speaker setup, on the bottom, and it won’t be powered by the Boom Sound technology. Still, you will be able to enjoy the latter while listening with headphones. There’s also an USB Type-C port, which can be considered a standard for nowadays’ phones.
Moving on to the specs, it seems that the HTC Bolt will come with a 5.5″ display, with a full HD resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. We don’t know nothing about the processor, but the phone is rumoured to have 3 GB of RAM and 64 GB of expandable storage.
In terms of camera, we’re talking about an 18 MP rear snapper, with f/2.0 aperture and 4K video support, aided by a dual LED flash, while on the front the phone will have an 8 MP selfie unit. Finally, the HTC Bolt will run Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box.
Whenever HTC decides to launch this smartphone, it will be available globally, being a Sprint-exclusive in the United States.
