Starting today, the new HTC Bolt will be available exclusively at Sprint becoming Sprint’s fastest smartphone ever. Built to make use of Sprint’s LTE Plus Network, the HTC Bolt features a Qualcomm Snapdragon X10 LTE modem with downloads up to 450Mbps and uploads up to 50Mbps.
With HTC Bolt web browsing, file downloading, streaming video and music is smooth and vivid while sharing photos and videos with friends is almost instantaneous.
Forged from glass and metal, HTC Bolt is a dramatic evolution of HTC’s “sculpted by light” design. It features a 5.5-inch Quad HD (2K) display and it is the first water-resistant aluminum unibody Android phone, along with more precise contours and a flatter back for sharper contrast that catches light beautifully. Bold, chamfered edges are carved out of Gunmetal or Glacier Silver metal to make the 3.7mm side cut look and feel slimmer than ever in your hand. HTC Bolt also introduces HTC BoomSound Adaptive Audio earphones that tailor sound to your ears’ unique structure for a truly personal audio experience.
HTC BoomSound Adaptive Audio tuned to you
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. Just plug in the USB Type C headphones (included) and, almost instantly, you’ll experience music and movies with thundering bass and pitch-perfect treble that sound clearer than you believed possible. In addition, Hi-Res audio delivers 24-bit sounds as you would hear it in the movie theater, nightclub or concert hall.
Sharper shots in a snap
The HTC Bolt’s 16MP camera, supported by the Snapdragon processor, has OIS (Optical Image Stabilization) to reduce camera shake and capture sharp photographs and 4K video even in low light. The camera also features fast launch times and an ultra-fast autofocus of 0.3s with Phase Detection Auto Focus.
Selfies are great, too, with HTC Bolt. An 8MP front camera with Auto HDR. Super-wide panorama mode lets you capture your whole family and an expansive background, and an integrated screen flash ensures shots look great in low light.
Power, convenience and customization
Running the latest Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box, HTC Bolt offers all the powerful features you would expect from the latest flagship smartphone, including split-screen view, quicker multitasking, free unlimited photo storage with Google Photos, and Google Duo video calling preloaded.
HTC Bolt’s built-in fingerprint sensor lets you unlock your phone at the touch of your finger – in as little as 0.2 seconds and lets you lock and unlock apps using Boost+. Even better, Boost+ also keeps your phone in top condition by cleaning up junk files and dynamically allocating resources like phone memory as required, ensuring your phone runs smoothly and efficiently.
HTC Freestyle Layout frees you from an on-screen grid and lets you customize your home screen. Drag icons, stickers and widgets anywhere, layer them, overlap them, group them and more. You can even link stickers to apps, or just get rid of on-screen icons entirely.
Power users will be happy to hear that there is a powerful 3,200mAh battery, enough for up to a day or more use on a single charge. If you need to recharge quickly, HTC Bolt features Qualcomm Quick Charge 2.0 technology for fast charging. Load up on photos, videos, movies and games with the HTC Bolt’s 3GB RAM and 32GB storage space, expandable with optional SD cards for up to 2TB of space so your storage needs are covered now and far into the future.
HTC Bolt is now available at Sprint stores, www.sprint.com and 1(800) SPRINT1 for just $25 per month over 24 months with installment billing.
