HTC Bolt Update, Pricing, Availability; Sprint-Exclusive Smartphone Joins 'No Headphone Jack' Bandwagon
After several leaks, the HTC Bolt is now a reality. The company unveiled the new smartphone recently and it will be available on the Sprint network in the U.S. The smartphone features a very fast Snapdragon X10 LTE modem and also supports the 3X20 carrier, which is why this phone is only available on Sprint.
HTC Bolt Features - No Headphone Jack
The all new HTC Bolt is made using aluminum and features IP57 water resistance certification. This means that the all-aluminum Bolt is resistant against mild rain, water splashes, spills and submersion under 3.2 feet of water for up to 30 mins.
HTC has included a 5.5 inch Super LCD 3 display that is protected by Gorilla Glass 5. The display has a resolution of 1440 x 2560 and underneath, there is a Snapdragon 810 processor. The 810 is an octa-core CPU and is coupled with 3GB of RAM. That is not a lot considering that current smartphones have at least 4GB of RAM. The internal storage on the Bolt is only 32GB, but there is a microSD slot available that supports up to 2TB of external storage.
The Bolt features a 16 megapixel rear camera that includes PDAF laser focus and an f/2.0 lens. It also supports Optical Image Stabilization, RAW format and can capture 4K video. A front facing selfie camera is available with an 8 megapixel sensor. The smartphone has a 3200mAh battery that supports Quick Charge 2.0. As for ports, the device includes a USB 2.0 Type-C port and no headphone jack. It also comes installed with Android 7.0 Nougat and Sense UI.
As per PhoneArena, the HTC Bolt will be a great competitor for the iPhone 7 and Samsung Galaxy S7/S7 Edge.
HTC Bolt Price and Availability
The HTC Bolt will only be available from Sprint in U.S and is exclusive to the carrier. The Bolt is priced at $600 or through an installment plan where the user will have to pay $25 a month for 24 months.
The smartphone is available in two colors; Gunmetal and Glacial Silver. According to The Verge, there is a catch to the HTC Bolt being so fast when it comes to downloads and uploads. The Sprint LTE Plus with 3X20 Carrier aggregation only works in Chicago, San Francisco, Minneapolis, Dallas, Denver, Kansas City, Cleveland and Columbus, Ohio.
