HTC Bolt has probably been certified by the FCC already

The HTC Bolt has been leaking at a steady pace over the past several weeks, most recently a few days ago when we saw it in a few live shots. Those were thankfully accompanied by a pretty comprehensive list of leaked specs, including the fact that it’s going to run Android 7.0 Nougat from day one.

Well, what do you know, the FCC has just certified a new HTC device that happens to be powered by that exact Android iteration. Since no other HTC handsets have been rumored to be close to launch with Nougat on board, we assume this is the Bolt. If so, it’s going to have the extremely awe-inspiring model number of 2PYB200.

The shots above come from the FCC certification process, showing you where you can locate the FCC ID for the device in its software. The FCC also confirms that the Bolt has 4G LTE, NFC, Bluetooth, and Wi-Fi 802.11ac, but that’s hardly surprising in this day and age. As usual, no other information has been outed by the agency.

However, that rumor from last week talked about the phone coming with a 5.5-inch 1080p touchscreen, an 18 MP rear camera with f/2.0 aperture, an 8 MP selfie unit, 3GB of RAM, and 64GB of expandable storage. It’s going to stand out for what it’s missing, as HTC plans to bid adieu to the 3.5mm headset jack with this model. The Bolt will be offered by Sprint in the US, but will get a global launch.
