The HTC Bolt may be looking to ride the strong wave of smartphone wars as the company is soon to reveal their latest masterpiece. That being said, those who may be itching to get their hands on the said device may need to be aware of its strengths and weaknesses alike.

Today's mobile phone staple competition puts both the Samsung Galaxy S7 and Apple's iPhone 7 on the hot seat, making things quite difficult for the HTC Bolt. Nonetheless, the competition is far from over as the features of the upcoming mobile device may be enough to go toe-to-toe if not to dominate the oppositions.

As reported by Techno Buffalo, the HTC Bolt received a number of leaks in the past, with the apparent confirmation as well that the device will be a Sprint made exclusive in the United States. Apart from donning a 5.5-inch 2K display, the HTC Bolt will be resistant to dust and water.

However, some worries that there may be an inadequacy in the resistance, in comparison to the Samsung Galaxy S7 and iPhone 7. With IP687 water resistance, the other models may set a staple, but does not mean that the HTC Bolt should be pushed over; an IP57 rating will still protect the device from some inadvertent spills from time to time.

One of the most appraised feats of the HTC Bolt is the battery life, containing 3,200mAh. It is said that for only 30 minutes worth of charging, the device will be good to go for one whole day. The same commendation can be said for the headphones, which has a speaker 70% larger than the conventional kind.

With what is called a BoomSound Adaptive Audio, the headphones will adapt and adjust according to the user's ears. Lastly, the HTC Bolt will have 24-bit audio processing respectively, with a 16-megapixel rear camera and 8-megapixel front camera as reports say.

The HTC Bolt will have the Android 7.0 Nougat version, which gives an upper hand advantage against most models. That being said, announcements are expected to come November 11th, without a withholding release date or price as of the moment.
