HTC 10 rear case surfaces in photos shot from various angles; latest specs are here
The latest leaked images of the HTC 10 surfaced today, along with specs alleged to belong to the manufacturer's next flagship model. As we've seen with previous leaks, the square camera on the back of the HTC One M9 is gone, replaced by a round camera like the one seen on the HTC One (M8). Next to the camera is a dual LED flash, and possibly a laser auto focus. The chamfered edges found on the HTC 10 will allow the phone's user to maintain a grip on the device. And we can see that there will be at least two different color options to choose from.

As for the specs, some of which we've covered before, the HTC 10 is expected to be equipped with a 5.15-inch Super AMOLED display with a 1440 x 2560 QHD resolution. Under the hood we should find the Snapdragon 820 chipset containing a quad-core CPU, and the Adreno 530 GPU. 4GB of RAM will be inside along with 32GB of native storage. A 12MP camera is expected to adorn the back of the phone, and could contain the same Sony IMX377 sensor used on the Nexus 6P and Nexus 5X.

HTC is holding an online event on April 12th during which the HTC 10 should be unveiled. The question will be, as it has been for the last few years, has HTC has built a handset that can take sizeable business away from Samsung and LG?.

Check out the latest images of the HTC 10 by clicking on the slideshow below.

Hopefully they learned from that... I know, probably not. Still, LG did. Every little bit helps keep them afloat.

So. If you don't break it in the first place, you won't have to repair them. That's why they have insurance. If it gets broke you simply replace it.

This is what all you people wanted with metal phones. Like most metal mites repair is either impossible expensive or both.

Stop whining about the obvious.

Just a redesigned M7. Nothing new here. Nobody wants to innovate anymore.

Alright then care to explain your idea of an innovative design? Everyone on here likes to complain about designs being the same blah blah, but no one ever goes into detail about what they want the device to look like.

There really isn't much that can be done with a rectangular slab.

yeah. I mean if it isn't broken, don't fix it. Just because its the same looking, doesn't make it automatically bad. You need to learn how to accept something and not want something that is new all the time. That is what the world is becoming.

Looks damn gorgeous, HTC's back.

I love my S7 but could trade it for a 10 if the camera is a win.

Wasn't it confirmed at this point that it would have a Super LCD 5 screen? Why are they still reporting AMOLED? Also, by this thing's scores, it might just be 1080p after all. Either way is good to me. If QHD, though, I'd prefer it be LCD

posted on 26 Mar 2016, 13:51

11. DefinitiveKid (Posts: 217; Member since: 15 May 2013)


yeah I was wondering the same thing. Pretty sure it was confirmed to sport a Super LCD screen.

Just curious though, why would you prefer an LCD screen if QHD?

Evan Blass reported 6 days ago, that it is indeed Super LCD5.

Custom ROMs. Resolution change. Since QHD is double the pixels up and double the pixels horizontal compared to HD, then scaling is perfect. You could get a lot of speed and power doing this, not to mention a huge battery life gain via underclocking w/ no lag.

So why LCD and not AMOLED if QHD? AMOLED would look bad at HD resolution on a 5.2" screen, whereas LCD still looks pretty sharp. My gf's G Vista has a 5.7" HD screen, and from normal viewing distances you don't see pixels all that much.

No. QHD 2560x1440, FHD 1920X1080. Now I am no math teacher but 1440 is not double 1080...

posted on 27 Mar 2016, 19:02

86. CraftyBoyGT (Posts: 19; Member since: 21 Apr 2015)


it's double normal HD (720p). Make sure to clarify.

87. CraftyBoyGT (Posts: 19; Member since: 21 Apr 2015)


i guess. There are a lot of 2016 phones coming out with relatively the same specs. (SD820/Adreno 530). Not much to show a difference from exept a logo and main design. Even that is related too!

Phonearena slacks again, funny I even submitted this to them hours ago and with images that weren't even included in this article. And images that have a better look at the back of the phone.

Black looks so sexy

Although I still do prefer the looks of the M7/8, this htc 10 looks a lot better to me now than it 0riginally did when I first saw it leaked. I think I was just more upset about them removing the front facing stereo speakers as former M7/8 owner.

With designs like this maybe HTC making the next few nexus devices won't be so bad. The HTC 10 is shaping up to a great all around device.

M7 had sharp smooth less curves, like the Lumia1020.
M8 was like iPhones, ugly to ergonomical, rather than design.
M9, 10 even uglier like the G5, and with chamfered back.

Omnibalance design is sexy, like Z5, Huawei Mate8, oppoFind7, Mi5 are all have sharp angular design.

So in post #48 you were trying to say HTC went from good(M7) to bad(M8) to ugly(M9) and finally to ugliest with the HTC 10? Because you only said, Good, bad and ugly in post #48 but there are 4 phones from M7-HTC 10 not 3 lol.

My iQ?? For the record i'm not the one who said they lost iQ points trying to read your comment. Judging from post #48 it's you who doesn't have a sharp intellect.

BTW you can't have a sharp iQ, iQ means intelligence quote and that comes in the form of a score that's either high, low or average, I suspect yours is somewhat low.

Also you can see the massive speaker on top. That's the boom sound, not the ear piece.

If its the IMX377 sensor, they wouldve not teased it as "World First, World Class, Front and Back.". So probably something new.

In htcs case, something new in the camera Department hasn't gone down well, wish they would just implement Sony latest sensor and add some world first software gimmick that you can turn off LOL.

posted on 26 Mar 2016, 16:23

31. Fardon (Posts: 95; Member since: 24 Nov 2014)


Yes they would have.

World's first could be referring to OIS being present on the front camera.

35. CanYouSeeTheLight (Posts: 1116; Member since: 05 Jul 2012)


Let me try and put this as simple as possible.

World First, World Class
Front and Back

Front camera has OIS, that's a world first.

Back camera has the advanced IMX377 with wide aperture lens, OIS and PDAF so it is in the same class as other devices in the world.

The order of words is not there just to make it sound good, it has a purpose.

posted on 26 Mar 2016, 17:38

37. SYSTEM_LORD (Posts: 427; Member since: 05 Oct 2015)


I think that "world first, world class" refers to both, as in the IMX377 has never been equipped with OIS, nor has a front facer. Also, doesn't the 2015 nexus phones lack pdaf?

Look pretty awesome. Hope they offer a 5.5' or bigger version for those that don't want a small phone. I can't go back to anything smaller than 5.5' at this point.
