HTC Bolt (codenamed Acadia) to run Android Nougat at launch
The unannounced HTC Bolt that we saw in September is expected to be released sometime later this month in the US, and it looks like it will become HTC's first handset to run Android Nougat out of the box (the Google Pixel and Pixel XL don't count, because they're not HTC-branded).

According to HTC ROM developer LlabTooFeR, the Bolt will run Android Nougat with Sense 8 UI (the same Sense version that can be found on the HTC 10, though this one is still running Android Marshmallow). Reportedly, the Bolt is codenamed HTC Acadia, and isn't a US-exclusive device: Europe, Asia and Africa should get it, too.

It's said that Sprint is getting ready to sell the HTC Bolt in the US (possibly starting the coming weeks). Right now, there is no info on the features of the Bolt, but the device certainly resembles the HTC 10, having a relatively similar metal body, plus a fingerprint scanner on the front. There's a very noticeable camera on the back, alongside a dual LED flash for it, but it seems that laser auto focus isn't on board.

We'll let you know more about the HTC Bolt as soon as new details emerge.
