The new mid-range 5.5-inch smartphone is expected to ship before the end of this year with Android 7.0 Nougat.

The upcoming HTC Bolt smartphone will apparently take cues from the iPhone 7 and Moto Z by dropping the staple 3.5 mm audio jack completely if these latest leaks prove to be true. Instead of the tried and true 3.5 mm port, the manufacturer may be relying on "Boom Sound" audio via the USB Type-C port instead. A single internal speaker will be on the bottom edge of the smartphone. It remains to be seen if HTC will throw in USB Type-C to 3.5 mm adapters to make the transition easier for users.

Other features will purportedly include:

  • 5.5-inch FHD display
  • 3 GB RAM
  • 64 GB eMMC w/ microSD support
  • 18 MP rear camera w/ f/2.0 aperture and 4K recording
  • 8 MP front camera

The Bolt is expected to be slightly larger than the flagship 5.2-inch HTC 10 in length and width with an official reveal coming before the end of November. HTC has been struggling in the smartphone world as sales of the HTC 10 have been subpar, but the Taiwanese manufacturer is managing to keep itself afloat through sales of its Vive VR headset and the new Pixel and Pixel XL Google smartphones.
