HTC 10 Renders Appear Again, Color Names Appear Too

March 10, 2016 - Written By Alexander Maxham

The HTC 10 is slated to be HTC’s next flagship device, with it being announced either in March or April – rumor on the street is that it’ll be available on April 9th. Although that’s not confirmed. We’ve been seeing more and more leaks for the HTC 10, which normally mean that the announcement isn’t far away. Last night, Evleaks posted a render of the four colors of the HTC 10, however this time we got the branded names of the colors as well.

What we have here is the carbon gray, glacial silver (which seems it’ll be available with a white front and a black front), and topaz gold. The glacial silver is the name that they have been using on their last few M series flagship smartphones. Carbon Gray is a bit new, and topaz gold was also used on the HTC One A9 last fall. The colors look quite nice, and as you can see they do have the chamfered edges, which we’ve heard so much about. Additionally, it looks like we have a home button on the front, which will likely house the fingerprint reader. It appears that HTC is ditching the soft-keys this time around. Where there is a physical home button already, it makes sense to make capacitive buttons for back and recents. As it allows users to have a bit more screen space. On the back, you can see the camera, which is rumored to be marketed as an UltraPixel camera again. It’s also rumored to be the same camera as what the Nexus 6P and Nexus 5X had last year, in the Sony IMX377 sensor.

Nothing is confirmed, when it comes to the HTC 10. However, with leaks like this coming from Evleaks, it’s safe to say that it is official. Evleaks is known for leaking out products like this, and he’s got over 90% of them correct so far, so it’s safe to trust his leaks. The HTC 10 will have big competition when it comes out. Seeing as the Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge are already available and the LG G5 is coming in early April.
