HTC Bolt Rumoured Specifications

The HTC Bolt will have a typical design that is seen on most of the HTC flagship smartphones like the recently launched HTC 10. It will feature a 5.5-inch (1920 x 1080 pixels) Full HD display that will be powered by 3GB RAM and 64GB of internal storage. It will come with a metal unibody design as seen in the images. It will run on Android 7.0 Nougat OS with HTC’s Sense 8.0 UI on top of it.

If we look at the front, it comes with a front-facing camera along with the earpiece and the usual sensors – proximity and ambient light sensors. Coming below the FHD display, we get two capacitive touch buttons on either sides of the physical home button that also houses the fingerprint sensor.

HTC Bolt Side View Leaked

The right side of the phone houses the SIM card and microSD card trays whereas the left side has the power / lock button along with the volume rocker. Now, looking at the rear side, we find a Dual LED flash on top of the camera module but no Laser Auto Focus module is found. The antenna lines are there at the top as well as the bottom, which are necessary for cellular reception. The HTC Bolt is expected to come with a 18 megapixel rear camera along with f/2.0 aperture lens and 4K video recording capability. On the front, there will be a 8 megapixel selfie camera.

HTC Bolt Bottom with no headphone jack leaked

Coming to the bottom of the phone, it only houses the primary microphones, USB Type-C port and loudspeaker grills. As expected, the device does not come with a 3.5 mm audio jack. According to Blass, the phone will support HTC BoomSound audio technology but only when you will be using headphones.

There is no information on pricing or release date of HTC Bolt yet. Stay tuned for more.
