HTC’s latest flagship, which is now known as the HTC 10, has yet to reach a launch or receive an official release date, but those who are interested in picking up the device may not have to wait long as there are rumors that the HTC 10 will potentially launch next month on April 19th. While that particular launch date has not been confirmed by HTC, it gives consumers an idea on the time frame they may have to wait. Not a lot is known about the device so far, but HTC has teased that the phone would be coming with a “world class” front and back camera experience.
While HTC didn’t give any official details on the cameras, other specs have been rumored over the last few weeks or more, like the use of a Quad HD AMOLED panel for the display. Now, a new rumor points to a completely different type of display technology, as Evan Blass suggests that the HTC 10 will not use AMOELD but instead it will be coming with a Super LCD 5 display. It’s worth mentioning that this is still just a rumor for now, although it’s entirely likely that it’s correct as HTC’s previous flagship, the One M9, uses a Super LCD 3 display panel.
Screen specs are not the only rumor mentioned, as Blass also points out that the HTC 10 will come with a 3,000mAh battery inside. Whether or not that is actually the case, the battery will undoubtedly be non-removable just as it has in the last three flagship phones from the company. Alongside these two new specs rumors, the HTC 10 is thought to come powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor, another likely possibility given that HTC has stuck with using Qualcomm’s newest available processors each year for their flagship smartphones. It’s also been rumored to come with 4GB of RAM and an internal storage capacity of 32GB and expandable storage via a micro SD card slot. It’s also thought to have a display size of 5.15-inches, with rumored camera quality of 12MP for at least the back camera. There is still more than a month to go until the rumored launch date with more rumors and hardware details about the device likely surfacing in the time leading up to it.
