We now have a date for when the HTC 10 will be officially unveiled, which is April 12th, and it’ll be an online-only event. That’s basically what the company did to unveil the HTC One A9 last fall as well, held the event in an empty stadium (where their Tidal concert was happening later) and announced the device in virtual reality. We’re just a few weeks away from the HTC 10’s unveiling and it looks like the leaks aren’t stopping anytime soon.
Coming out of China, we have plenty of live images of the HTC 10, including one with the inside of the back panel. The HTC 10 appears to line up to all of the leaks we’ve seen thus far. Including having those chamfered edges on the device. In theory, that should help with holding the device more comfortably, as well as it not slipping out of your hand. Something that is usually an issue with metal smartphones like the HTC One M7, One M8 and One M9.On the back we have the round camera, making a return. Instead of a square camera with rounded corners that we saw on the HTC One M9 last year. We have dual LED flash on the back and what appears to be laser auto-focus. Which would be a nice addition to the HTC 10.
As far as specs go, they appear to lineup perfectly with previous rumors. So we have a 5.15-inch quad HD Super AMOLED display (that’s a 2560×1440 resolution display) along with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 inside, 4GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. It does look like we’re sticking with a 12-megapixel camera on the back of the device. Which may not be a bad thing, considering it’s still rumored to be sporting the Sony IMX377 sensor which is what we have on the Nexus 6P and Nexus 5X. Both of which take some amazing pictures. HTC will be marketing it as an UltraPixel camera though. Boomsound is still there, but the front-facing speakers are not. There is said to be a pretty great amplifier inside which will still provide some great audio from the HTC 10.
We’ll know all of the specs and details in just a few weeks when HTC unveils it on April 12th.
