Image from HTC 10 leak gives away the phone's launch date?

A tweet from tipster Evan Blass gives a possible launch date for the HTC 10 of April 19th. How did Blass, once known by his @evleaks Twitter handle, come up with that date? Did he surreptitiously sneak into HTC headquarters to find it? Did he discover a secret code, or bribe some high powered official? Nah! He simply looked at the date on the screen of the HTC 10 image he leaked the other day.  Blass says that April 19th "is nearly a lock for (the) HTC 10 launch." 

The latest rumored specs include a 5.15-inch (AMOLED?) screen with a 1440 x 2560 QHD resolution. The Snapdragon 820 SoC is expected to be under the hood with a quad-core CPU and the Adreno 530 GPU. 4GB of RAM is said to be inside, with 32GB of expandable native storage. A 12MP Ultrapixel camera will adorn the back of the unit, and Android 6.0.1 will be pre-installed. We also expect to see a fingerprint scanner embedded in a front-facing home button. The USB Type-C port is rumored to be on board and the phone will reportedly support Quick Charge 3.0.

Besides the HTC 10, there have been rumors that HTC will be producing two Nexus handsets this year. Based on earlier reports, one of them could be a phablet with a 6-inch screen.

Looks like a solid enough device considering how the camera does. Question now is it too late for HTC to succeed?

It's never too late, they just need to control costs. As long as it is a solid phone, they should turn a profit (if the camera is solid, I'll probably get one over the g5 or s7, sense is just a much nicer skin)

I think design could be better
But anyway I hope it's going to include Qualcomm sense ID and wipower
Also a good amp and 32bit audio support

question :
Can't Sense ID be placed under the display ???
I mean if it can then why manufacturers don't do it ???
Hate those fingerprint buttons

OT: Bit weird, but check this amazing galaxy S7 vs Canon 70D focus test:

Hahaha. It's funny but it does the job. S7 edge is really a beast.

That's not how physics work. Just because someone creates a render it doesn't mean it can actually be produced

I won't mind if it even came on 19th May, but it better a well finished and well thought product rather than a "mee too" or a rushed phone. Like Xperia Z3+ last year was.

Wait a minute I got excited about this phone because I initially saw nexus

Is HTC going to make the next nexus or not because I really could care less for sense or locked down bootloader and rom

Sense has always been pretty awesome and since when does HTC "lock down" their bootloaders? Are you ok?

Looking forward to it, my m8 is still running strong minus the craptacular camera.

Screw it. I don't really care about phone design and I've liked sense since it was touchflo3d. I'm in. The battery in my m7 is showing signs of dying.
