HTC is among the oldest names when it comes to the world of Android technology. The company has been around for a really long while, and has been one of the top names in the markets. A respectable brand known for their hardware design as well as excellent UI, the HTC Sense, HTC has been a major player in the smartphone business. While the past few years might not have been so good for them, they have bounced back with the manufacturing of the Google Pixel smartphones. The company is now working on another major smartphone – the HTC Bolt.
The HTC Bolt has been in the news for quite a while now, as there have been a number of leaks. In the past many details have emerged about the smartphone, but a big news was uncovered today, as it has now come to light that the HTC Bolt smartphone, that is expected to release in a couple of months, would NOT feature a 3.5 mm jack.
This is quite similar to the iPhone 7, which had also released without a 3.5 mm jack earlier this year. New, leaked images of the HTC Bolt showcase the device without the 3.5mm jack, and they show a USB-C port at the bottom. This USB-C Port will help the users charge their devices, as well as play music, as it seems. There might either be a direct USB-C earphones bundled with the smartphone, or an iPhone-like converter device.
Removing the 3.5mm jack means that the device can now be slimmer. In addition to this, the HTC Bolt is expected to release with a 5.5 inched screen, 3GB of RAM, 64GB of built-in storage space. The device is indeed heavy on specs, and the removal of the 3.5mm jack from the smartphone too, would result in giving it a more premium appeal. However one must keep in mind that this report is not confirmed by HTC themselves.
