The HTC Bolt was introduced by Sprint earlier this month, as an “improved” version of the HTC 10. As we discussed in a previous article this isn’t really the case, but to be fair the HTC Bolt does come with a few perks. Like the fact that it runs Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box.

On the other hand, the Bolt takes advantage of the older Snapdragon 810 processor and ships without of a 3.5mm jack onboard or an adapter. Yes, customers are awarded a pair of Bluetooth earbuds with the purchase, but what if you like your old school headphones better?

To be eligible to receive the freebie, you need to have a HTC Bolt you’ve purchased between November 11, 2016 and January 31, 2017.  Interested parties have until February 28, 2017 to claim their adapter on the company’s Reward Center webpage.

Bolt users can expect to see their adapters arrive by the end of December, but be warned that high demand might lead to delays in delivery.

As a reminder the HTC Bolt towers over the HTC 10 by coming with a larger 5.5-inch display with 2,560 x 1,440 pixel resolution with Gorilla Glass 5.

The phone combines the power of the Snapdragon 810 with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. There’s also a 16MP main camera plus a hefty 8MP selfie shooter in front.

The phone has a 3,200 mAh battery and features quite an expensive $600 price tag at Sprint. So the additional freebie is quite welcomed.
