Recently the Taiwanese company had announced that its upcoming flagship will be unveiled on April 12, however reports claim that the the device may not reach stores until April 15. The company has been marketing the all new HTC 10 under the hashtag ‘#powerof10‘ and has revealed teasers on its audio, high-end camera and chamfered metal frame. These teasers were then followed by the invitation to the event on which the smartphone is to be unveiled. Now, HTC yet again adds another official teaser to the long list.
HTC released a teaser via its official twitter account which boasts about the performance capabilities of the smartphone. The tagline “Not all phones are created equal. The fastest and smoothest Android. You’ll feel it.” speaks for itself. In addition to that, capacitive keys and a home button (with embedded fingerprint scanner) similar to the previously released HTC One A9 have also been shown.
On the other hand, HTC 10 was spotted on GFXBench database which revealed various specifications of the device. Note that these specifications are exactly similar to the ones being rumored since weeks.
Apparently the flagship will be featuring a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 chipset which will definitely make it a worthy competitor of the other major flagships by tech giants like Samsung and LG. HTC 10 will be unveiled with a 5.2-Quad HD (1440 x 2560 pixels) Super LCD 5 display, fingerprint scanner embedded inside a home button, a 12 MP UltraPixel rear camera combined with dual-tone LED flash, wireless charging, 3000mAh battery, 4 GB of RAM and 16/32 GB of expandable memory. Needless to say the smartphone will be running the latest Android Marshmallow v6.0.1 which comes with new features like Google Now on Tap, Doze and a completely redesigned app icons.
Rumors suggest that a variant of HTC 10 might also be launched with a Snapdragon 652 chipset as opposed to the Snapdragon 820 SoC. For those who aren’t familiar with the Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 652 SoC (aka SD652) – it is a Octa core CPU which includes four 1.4GHz ARM Cortex-A53 cores and four 1.8 GHz ARM Cortex-A72 cores.
Coming towards the price of the handset, various sources claim that you’ll be able to get your hands on the SD820 SoC HTC10 for €740 once it reaches stores on April 15. Stay tuned for further updates.
