Wireless carrier Sprint announced Monday the availability of the HTC Bolt — which it describes as the fastest smartphone built for its LTE Plus network — in its portfolio of products.
The device is said to have data speeds that “leave the competition in the dust,” backed by 3×20 MHz Carrier Aggregation thanks to the Qualcomm Snapdragon X10 LTE modem.
HTC Bolt features a 5.5-inch Quad HD display and is water-resistant. HTC Bolt also introduces HTC BoomSound Adaptive Audio earphones that tailor sound.
“The HTC 10 released earlier this year was the most advanced smartphone we’ve ever built, so we knew we had to raise the bar even higher for Sprint’s most advanced ever network,” said André Lönne, president of HTC America. “For HTC Bolt, we took everything that was so great about the HTC 10 and made it even better.”
HTC Bolt features HTC BoomSound Adaptive Audio, which scans your ears and the ambient noise around you to adjust audio output to suit your personal hearing capabilities. The device also integrates a 16MP rear camera and an 8MP front camera with Auto HDR for taking selfies.
The phone runs on Android 7.0 Nougat and is supported by a 3,200mAh battery, enough for up to a day or more use on a single charge.
