The HTC Bolt is a Sprint exclusive and will set you back by USD 600 which roughly translates to Rs. 40,500. Interestingly, the smartphone bears the same design language as that of the HTC 10 but there are a few major changes comparatively.
Let's take a closer look at how the company's latest offering, the HTC Bolt differs from this year's flagship the HTC 10.
Roughly 5 to 10 times faster cellular speed
The HTC 10 Bolt is touted to be the fastest smartphone in the world in terms of cellular speeds. The smartphone boasts speeds of 250Mbps which is roughly around 5 to 10 times faster than what you'd get on a standard LTE connection.
Despite the fact that the Snapdragon 820 chipset has become a norm for this year's flagships, interestingly, the company decided to opt for the Snapdragon 810 chipset (a year old chipset) for the smartphone. It is paired with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage space.
That said, the device offers support for latest connectivity options which include Cat 9 LTE (3x20MHz) Carrier Aggregation, USB Type-C, NFC, and Bluetooth 4.1.
Android 7.0 Nougat
The HTC Bolt is the company's first smartphone to run the Android 7.0 Nougat out-of-the-box.
No headphone jack
After the launch of Apple iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, the headphone jack has a become a thing. Following the footsteps of the Cupertino tech giant, the company has dropped the headphone jack on the smartphone.
The HTC Bolt is IP57 certified, what this essentially means is that the smartphone is water, splash, and dust resistant.
5.5-inch QHD display
As opposed to the 5.2-inch display on the HTC 10, the company opted for a 5.5-inch display on the HTC Bolt. The display still remains at QHD resolution, though.
