A new Android 7.0 Nougat smartphone, the HTC Bolt, may be on its way soon. A new report has surfaced with images of what appears to be leaked training slides from Sprint showing features of the currently unannounced smartphone.
The HTC Bolt was first leaked in September with a render that showed that it may have ditched the usual 3.5 mm headphone jack. Today’s new report from TechnoBuffalo, which shows the leaked slides, would seem to confirm it will be running Android 7.0 out of the box, along with the new Amazon Assistant. The Amazon Assistant will apparently give you the best results from Amazon while you’re shopping. For instance, if you’re shopping on WalMart’s website for a new toaster, you’ll see the best prices for that toaster at Amazon. Check out the image below for a better look.
The report adds that it will have a 5.5-inch 2K display, a 3,200mAh battery with quick charging features, a 16MP rear camera, an 8MP front-facing camera and IP57-rated water assistance.
The slides also show that the phone will come with what HTC calls “BoomSound Adaptive Audio” earphones that are supposed to automatically calibrate the sound for your specific ears. They are also supposed to feature speakers that are 70 percent larger than most headphones. The slides don’t mention anything about the HTC Bolt’s storage, RAM or processor, although previous rumors claim it will have a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 CPU.
The report says that while Sprint is supposed to announce the HTC Bolt on Friday, November 11, the actual launch date for the phone and its price were not mentioned. Keep in mind that these slides and reports have not been confirmed by either HTC or Sprint, so take them with a grain of salt.
