The HTC Bolt looks like being only a couple of days away from the official launch.

The device will be available as an exclusive to Sprint networks in the United States. A steady number of rumors have been coming in about the device over the last few weeks. The latest leaked information, though, seems the most legit of them all. It shows that the HTC Bolt will come with a 5.5 inch display with 2K resolution. This would bring the device on par with the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge.

HTC seems to have understood that one of the major problems with the HTC 10’s inability to make significant impact in the market is the lack of a large display. The HTC 10 comes with a 5.2-inch screen, which seems a small by today’s standards. The Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge has been able to bypass this issue by having a 5.5-inch screen unlike its smaller brother Galaxy S7, which has a 5.2 inch display.

Just like the Apple iPhone 7 and the Galaxy S7 twins, the HTC Bolt will also come with water and dust resistance and the only to IP57 rating. The Apple and the Samsung device come with a beefier IP67 rating which allows them to be immersed in water. The HTC Bolt may be best suited to preventing accidental water splashes.

The leaked information has confirmed that the phone will offer a 3200 mAh battery along with the ability to quick charge using a special adapter. It is highly likely that this adapter would be provided in the box making it much easier to get the battery gives a full day’s worth of usage in just 30 minutes of charge. Optical image stabilization appears to have been provided on the 16-megapixel rear camera, which has a f/2.0 aperture. Hence, it is expected to be nowhere near enough the Galaxy S7 and the Apple iPhone 7 in terms of night photography, but it should be fine for normal daylight capturing.

Even if the user is insistent upon night photography, there is always the LED flash in the rear. The front camera appears to use an eight-megapixel sensor. As ever, the Sprint network is likely to load up the phone with a lot of bloatware. The phone is expected to ship with android 7.0 out of the box. Special adaptive headphones with 70% larger size would be available along with the device.
