HTC Bolt leaked picture

The HTC Bolt is strikingly similar to the company’s flagship – the HTC 10. Both phones share the chamfered edges, small camera bump, plastic antenna lines, touch-sensitive navigation buttons below the screen and even microphone placement. There are two things missing in the HTC Bolt, though. The first one is laser auto-focus, the lack of which is understandable considering that the phone is a mid-range offering. The second is the 3,5 mm headphone jack. We can’t be sure about this, but when putting the HTC Bolt and HTC 10 pictures side by side, the lack of the headphone jack in the upcoming device is pretty well visible.

According to Android Authoritythe device will feature a 5,5″ display, 3GB of RAM, 64GB of internal storage (expandable via a microSD slot) and an 18 Mpix rear camera, all of this being powered by Android Nougat. Pricing of the device is not yet available. The HTC Bolt will most probably be available worldwide after launch.
