HTC is, next to Sony, one of those tech giants which are not exactly doing all that great in the smartphone market. HTC has been having issues turning a profit for quite some time now, as they company is unable to sell enough smartphones. HTC was once the third largest smartphone OEM, but several years ago things turned to worse for this Taiwan-based company. HTC has introduced several devices in the last couple of months, including the One A9 and One X9 handsets, but most HTC fans are waiting for the crown jewel in HTC’s lineup, the company’s HTC 10 flagship.
This smartphone will be introduced on April 12th in New York, London and Taipei, that much has been confirmed already. HTC has been releasing some teasers through social media lately, and a listing of that handset appeared on a Romanian site recently as well. Now, it seems like HTC 10 has just paid a visit to the FCC, as 2PS6200 and 2PS6500 listings popped up on the site. The HTC 10 is expected to feature a 5.1-inch QHD (2560 x 1440) display, 4GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. The device will be fueled by the Snapdragon 820 64-bit quad-core processor, along with the Adreno 530 GPU for graphics. The 12.3-megapixel snapper will be located on the back of this phone, and a 5-megapixel shooter will be placed up front. Android Marshmallow will come pre-installed on the HTC 10, and on top of it, you’ll be able to find HTC’s Sense 8 UI. The device will, almost certainly, going to be made out of metal, and it seems like HTC will include a physical home button below the display as well. The fingerprint scanner will be included here, and it will quite probably be built into that home button.
As already mentioned, HTC has released several teasers lately, and has called their upcoming flagship ‘the smoothest and fastest Android phone’, while the company has also teased the phones build by releasing the following caption: ‘world first, world class, front and back’. It is obvious HTC is trying to hype up their handset before it gets launched, though the opinions are mixed as far as its design goes, based on rumored design, of course. Either way, stay tuned for more info, we’re sure more leaks will pop up before HTC announces this handset.
