Based on leaked renders, it looks like the HTC Bolt will eschew the 3.5mm port for USB-C audio, much like the Moto Z and LeEco Le Max 2. The inclusion of the Snapdragon 810 is perplexing, as it’s already more than a year and a half old at this point.
The SoC not only suffered from thermal issues at launch, but there’s also a possibility that it won’t meet the technical hardware requirements for future versions of Android. The Adreno 330 GPU’s lack of support for OpenGL ES 3.1 is likely why devices powered by the Snapdragon 800 won’t be updated to Nougat, and we may see a similar situation play out with the Snapdragon 810 in a few years’ time.
Considering this is still a rumor, we’ll have to wait for the Bolt to debut to make any conclusions. The phone is slated for an unveil on Sprint in the U.S., with an eventual release planned for select markets in the EMEA region.
