We may be literally just days away from the official announcement of HTC’s next premium smartphone, but that isn’t stopping the deluge of leaks regarding the device pouring in from all sides. Just days after the HTC 10 (codenamed ‘Perfume’) apparently leaked out in white, yet another purported image of the white HTC 10 has now been posted on Twitter by Mr. Christopher Poon who goes by the Twitter handle – @ngaibbdd. Of course, the image was originally posted on Weibo, the website that’s often referred to as China’s Twitter. With all the leaks and rumors pouring in over the past few weeks, the device is unlikely to hold very many surprises in the hardware and looks departments when it’s finally announced on 12th of this month.
While HTC is yet to confirm or deny any of the rumors surrounding the HTC 10, most industry insiders expect the handset to come with some serious hardware and software. While the upcoming HTC flagship is expected to be powered by a Snapdragon 820 chip from Qualcomm, the device is also expected to have 4GB of RAM and at least 32 GB of internal storage out of the box. Some rumors have also hinted at a version with 64 GB of storage, which should be par for the course for a flagship smartphone from a tier-1 OEM circa 2016. The HTC 10 is also heavily rumored to feature a 5.2-inch QHD display, but there’s no word as yet on the battery in the upcoming device. While the main rear camera is said to be 12-megapixel unit, the front-facing camera is said to come with something that may well be described as a never-before-seen feature on any mainstream smartphone until now.
While the 5-megapixel sensor for the front-facing selfie-cam by itself doesn’t sound earth-shattering, reports have indicated that it is also expected to have OIS (Optical Image Stabilization), which is a feature that’s often left out from even the rear cameras of premium smartphones. Either way, it’s not just the hardware specs that are already out in the open. Some reports earlier today even suggested that the device was going to be priced between NT$22,900 ($706) and NT$24,900 ($768) in Taiwan, although that particular report couldn’t be verified independently.
