HTC 10 (M10) features "world first, world class" cameras - at least that's what HTC is saying

HTC 10 (M10) features
HTC is getting ready to unveil a brand new flagship smartphone that will replace the One M9, which is now 1 year old. Not long after telling us that the upcoming handset - called HTC 10 - would be a powerful device, now HTC wants the world to know that the phone features "world first, world class, front and back" cameras. We say features and not will feature because the HTC 10 (previously known as HTC M10, or HTC Perfume) is almost certainly a finished product - all that HTC needs to do now is to announce it.

It's not the first time when HTC talks about this. A few weeks back, a company exec said that its next flagship smartphone would offer a "very compelling camera experience." According to rumors, the rear camera of the HTC 10 should be a 12 MP UltraPixel one, but we don't have any details on the front-facing camera. Anyway, at the moment, we can't know exactly how the device's cameras will be "world first, world class." But we really hope HTC won't disappoint us - like it did with the much-hyped 4 MP UltraPixel camera of the One M7 and One M8 (this camera wasn't really on par with what other flagship smartphones had to offer).

Interesting cameras aside, the HTC 10 is expected to feature a 5.1-inch display with 1440 x 2560 pixels (Quad HD), Qualcomm's high-end Snapdragon 820 processor, fingerprint scanner, 4 GB of RAM, and up to 64 GB of internal memory. Android Marshmallow with Sense 8.0 UI should be on board. Design-wise, the HTC 10 seems to be a mix between the One A9 and One M9. 

April 19 is likely the date when the HTC 10 will be launched - or maybe just announced, we'll see. Until then, let us know if you think that HTC can finally deliver a great camera experience, will you?

I absolutely hope it is. Keep everyone else stepping up their game.

Unfortunately it probably won't be, if history has anything to say...

I think it does, the S7 and G5 are great phones as expected, even if one is ugly as hell lol.

front of HTC10 is also very ugly. But G5 will still take the crown.
As rumours state, HTC 10 might have imx377. Which makes it "World 2nd, World Class" camera. First was Nexus 6p/5X.

Pic number 4 doesn't look that bad, the M10 is nither ugly or that good looking, I'll just say it looks very much how you expect an HTC flagship to look.

IMX377 coupled with ois and laser autofocus Doggy will make it much better than the nexus 6P but will it be enuf we need to wait and see.

it will be quite enough and arse kicking in camera department if M10 will manage to step ahead of S7.

5x/6p camera are very good with the exception of it not having OIS only. M10 is suppose to have OIS, AND also PDAF alongside with laser auto focus too + better ISP in the 820 vs 810/etc

posted on 15 Mar 2016, 16:09 1

23. DoggyDangerous (Posts: 783; Member since: 28 Aug 2015)


agreed! 5x/6p are top of the line in camera. M10 with OIS and PDaf will be a formidable camera. I hope HTC will manage to fix the software and hardware of camera this time and will mange to stand on equal footings with S7 and G5.

However, still it will not manage to compete in sale numbers with S7. Apple and Samsung has made a name through consistent improvements. These two never failed to deliver.

World's first is OIS on the front camera.

IMX378, LASER AF, PDAF and f/1.89 lens that paints a very good picture to me.

And i would hold those comments about the front back, same was said about the front of the A9 but that phone in real life is an absolute stunner even with the big bezels.

All those camera specs aren't HTC's weakness.

The weakness is in it's camera software. I mean, in it's poor IPA (Image Processing Algorithm).

The A9 and M9S have very decent IPA. But let's just disregard that and jump on the hate bandwagon.

Hating HTC is so trendy nowadays.

That is exactly why I think it won't feature imx377, it might be a good thing because it might feature something even more advanced!

It was honestly just a joke to ruffle some feathers. I really hope that HTC has a great device to put out, but they are facing a very hard battle with the S7 being a very difficult device to beat.

LOL, I agree, but HTC has been messed things for the past two years which many people thought they could have done better jobs easily.

I wish HTC successful this time or just go home and concentrated on VR. :P

I hope too, at least at the same level, here in Brazil s7 will arrive with exynos, and i wanted the snapdragon, also i like sense more than touchwiz.
also both don't have front facing speakers and uses capacitive buttons, that is a negative point for me.

Hi
All htc and lg fans outside of the USA, all sd820 CPU are junk next to the Samsung own CPU 8890 in the s7

it's being reported that the sd820 is crap slow next to the Samsung own CPU 8890

Seehttp://www.sammobile.com/2016/03/15/exynos-powered-galaxy-s7-appears-to-be-faster-than-its-snapdragon-820-counterpart/

I can report my s7 edge (uk) as had no slow downs at all and as not lagged and opens apps supper fast as per there video

This is nothing. The exynos craps all over the Sd 820 in battery tests.

From ars technica review:

"The surprise is that the Exynos version does much better in our battery test, with both Exynos models having about 14 percent longer times in the browser test and a whopping 46 percent longer time in the more GPU-heavy WebGL test."

Nothing is certain yet. But the inevitable anandtech article should make it clear.

He was saying the Sd820 was slower than the E8890, He said nothing about battery so idk why you even said that.

htc user experience is dull, it's vibration feedback is shallow and buttons are not clicky like Samsung, not to mention subpar camera and screen and generally slower performance than Samsung's offerings.
i'm not a fanboy of any brand, just a teck enthusiast, but htc have no solid grounds to snatch some customers from bigshots like apple or Samsung.
good luck!

I have a m8, the camera is ok for daylight use, audio capture is amazing too, but at night is pure crap, usable but since i was spoiled when i saw a s6 camera i never looked at m8 camera at the same way.

Dual front and Dual back camera?

posted on 15 Mar 2016, 15:37 2

10. DoggyDangerous (Posts: 783; Member since: 28 Aug 2015)


Dual camera is a gimmick so far. Nothing ground breaking is achieved yet from dual camera.

12. Berzerk000 (Posts: 4274; Member since: 26 Jun 2011)


Nothing ground breaking, but the wide angle of the second camera on the G5 could be useful.

posted on 15 Mar 2016, 15:56 1

19. DoggyDangerous (Posts: 783; Member since: 28 Aug 2015)


Yes, it is an extra feature and nice to have it. But I think, the money which LG has spent on implementing the 2nd wide angle camera could be used to procure better and larger sensor than current IMX234.

I would like to ask, what do you prefer? dual cams or one great cam in the cost of dual?

37. Berzerk000 (Posts: 4274; Member since: 26 Jun 2011)


LG is already using one of the best sensors in the G5. It is very comparable to the Galaxy S7. Most of the noticeable differences would be on the software side, except for low light where the S7's larger pixels would give it an advantage. However, that's mainly because of the lower resolution, not larger sensor size. The S7's sensor is very marginally larger than the G5, not enough to really make much of a difference.

I think LG made a good decision. It's 16 MP camera is comparable to the competition, but they went the extra mile and gave the consumer another camera for more versatility.

If you not in the USA or China the Samsung own CPU is way faster than the sd 820 on normal take I.e. Open apps and on

He is talking about the camera. From where you bring the CPU in?
I would like to ask, do you have a reading disorder?
You are looking pretty desperate to prove that exynos is better than SD820.

I hope HTC does well. However, I just keep thinking about the M9 ( not HTC falut - QC Royally trash HTC, LG, SONY etc.. with the first gen SD 810) and it's terrible camera. Also so sorry to see HTC get rid of the one feature that was their trademark -Front firing Boom sound speakers. I think there is no excuse their their engineers could have designed a solution that made the front speakers sleeker and sexier and reduced the bezels. Well, we shall see, if they don't live up to the hype it is really game over for their phone division at least.

With the size of the selfie cam i see on those leak and the track record of HTC concerning selfie cam i am not afraid its will be world class for selfie.

What i want to see if its the main shooter will be as well but based on leaks at least.. nexus 6P sensor coupled with ois sound pretty good.

Why HTC why? Ultra pixel needs to work or your company will fall to the wayside.

I really don't get why HTC refuses to use a camera module that has proven to work and continues to rely on being stubborn

They say this every year then it ends up being like same sensor as all other flagships only with the user interface setting them apart, which is practically nothing.

I can't believe HTC is still around after releasing two flagships with 5-year old 4MP cameras, in addition to a strange tiny-screen-large-body-framed phone.

Because competition in any form is bad, right?

The more competition the better, if HTC didn't use the "5 year old 4MP cameras" as a push for larger pixels Samsung wouldn't have made a 12MP 1.4um pixels sensor this year. Even if the implementation is bad it can pave the road for better things based around the same idea in the future.

HTC has been digging its own grave and burying itself under stupid decisions so i hope they have the sense to include a truly amazing camera which is years ahead of any other phone to get HTC back in the game.
