We’ve only seen small glimpses of HTC’s upcoming 2016 flagship in teaser photos and videos so far. Two separate leaks have turned this situation on its head with a flurry of new images and specs, revealing quite a few details about the phone.
First-off, it seems the handset is called the HTC 10, eschewing an earlier report which had named it the HTC One M10. The new moniker could indicate the brand is looking to step away from the latter series and re-invent itself. The above press render is certainly in line with the teaser image outed by the brand which had focused on its heavily chamfered edges.
The official-looking photo above was tweeted by Evan Blass. Notably, this HTC 10 doesn’t appear to carry the brand’s signature dual-speaker setup, something which had been hinted at in previous leaks. However, it may still offer HTC’s signature BoomSound through the single speaker seen at the bottom of the device.
The latter titbit is based on another tweet by OnLeaks who posted a photo of the HTC phone’s features alongside a number of live images. These snaps are of a black HTC 10 and look similar to the other silver-and-white one which was released by Blass.
OnLeaks also disclosed a number of features for the prototype HTC 10 such as USB Type-C connectivity, a 5.15-inch QHD screen, Qualcomm’s flagship Snapdragon 820, an Adreno 530 GPU, 4GB of RAM, and a 12MP camera. To recall, a recent camera sample supposedly taken by the handset had confirmed the last one, in addition to revealing its f/1.9 aperture.
The HTC 10 should get officially announced any day now, with speculation indicating an April launch for the phone. Stay tuned for more on the handset till that day finally arrives.
