April 8, 2016 - Written By Kristijan Lucic

Qualcomm is the most popular mobile processor manufacturer in the world. The company’s flagship Snapdragon 820 64-bit quad-core processor is currently fueling a number of flagship devices out there, including the Galaxy S7, S7 Edge, LG G5 and the Xiaomi Mi 5. That being said, HTC will introduce their new flagship (HTC 10) on April 12th, and pretty much every single rumor that surfaced said that the device will ship with the Snapdragon 820. Keep in mind that a lower-end HTC 10 variant was also mentioned (Snapdragon 6XX), but we’re talking about the company’s flagship here.

Well, Qualcomm has decided to release a new teaser on Twitter which contains the ‘Power of 10’ hashtag which HTC uses to promote their upcoming HTC 10 flagship. Qualcomm posted an image on twitter with the ‘Performance 10’ caption, which clearly suggests that the HTC 10 will be fueled by Qualcomm’s most powerful SoC. Now, as far as other specs go, the HTC 10 is rumored to sport a 5.2-inch 1080p (1920 x 1080) display, along with 4GB of RAM and 32GB / 64GB of internal storage. The Snapdragon 820 SoC will ship with the Adreno 530 GPU for graphics rendering, and we still don’t know what size will be HTC 10’s battery, but we do hope HTC will include a 3,000mAh+ unit in this device. The phone will be made out of metal, and judging by the leaks, the phone will sport a physical home button below the display. The 12-megapixel rear-facing camera has been rumored as well, and a 5-megapixel snapper will, allegedly, going to be available up front. Android Marshmallow will come pre-installed on the HTC 10, and on top of it, you’ll find HTC’s Sense 8 UI.

The HTC 10 Taiwan pricing and Sense 8 UI leaked earlier today, and it seems this will be quite a pricey phone, though that was to be expected. The leak said that the 32GB and 64GB storage variants of this device will cost NT$22,900 ($706) and NT$24,900 ($768) in Taiwan, respectively. In addition to this, the leak suggested that the phone will be available in Taiwan starting April 15th. Either way, stay tuned, we’ll report back if new info surfaces.
