HTC fans from all over the world are looking forward to one of the most promising phones of the end of the year, coming with Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box and no 3.5 mm jack, following a really weird trend, if you ask us. We’re talking about the HTC Bolt, of course, a Sprint-exclusive handset.
Recently, a couple of images with the actual handset, in its carrier-branded retail box, made the rounds online, revealing that the Bolt will be an insanely stylish device, featuring a fully-metallic build.
Spec-wise, it is expected to come with a 5.5″ display, rocking a full HD resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, while under the hood it has a Snapdragon 810 chipset. Yes, we know, it’s not the latest model, but this doesn’t mean that it’s not powerful. The processor will be aided by 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage.
Moving on, the HTC Bolt will also feature a 16 MP camera on the back, with an f/2.0 aperture, optical image stabilization and 4K video capabilities, while the front-facing snapper will rely on an 8 MP sensor. Finally, let’s not forget about the 3200 mAh battery, IP57 certification and 24-bit Hi-Res audio.
Looking at the specs, it can be said that the Bolt will be a mid-range smartphone, comparing it to 2016’s flagships, but HTC might as well be testing the market. After all, a handset without a 3.5 mm jack is pretty hard to digest.
Speaking about this, the headphones, featuring the Boom Sound Adaptive Audio technology, will connect straight to the USB Type-C port and be able to adapt to the type of music you are listening to, thanks to the previously mentioned technology.
The HTC Bolt is expected to make its debut today, but the pricing options are still a mystery.
