Although HTC hasn’t revealed any details about the HTC 10, its design recently surfaced online. The new smartphone is appeared to sport a metal-clad body with the previously launched One A9-like aesthetics. Also, it would have a physical home button with a fingerprint sensor.
The new HTC flagship will be the successor to the last year’s One M9. It would come with a 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 chipset along with an octa-core CPU and 4GB of RAM. The Taiwanese giant is also likely to offer the latest Android Marshmallow experience along with a new version of its Sense UI on top.
HTC has already suggested the presence of “world-class” camera sensors on the new smartphone. These sensors would deliver you an advanced experience. Furthermore, there are speculations that the device will come with laser autofocus technology and a phase detection autofocus (PDAF) lens.
Some initial reports claimed that the HTC 10 will have a 5.2-inch QHD display and features like a USB Type-C connector and VoLTE support. These will help HTC rival other contenders and would make the new smartphone a strong competitor against the Samsung Galaxy S7 and LG G5 flagships.
