Qualcomm just bragged on Twitter about the "performance" Snapdragon that awaits us with the HTC 10 unveiling next Tuesday, and both leaked benchmarks confirm it to be none other than Snapdragon 820, the chip maker's fastest silicon at the moment. This one powers the Galaxy S7 version in the US, and the LG G5, so you can rest assured that the HTC 10 won't feel underpowered, especially when we look at the rest of the specs sheet.
The HTC 10 will come with the whopping 4 GB of RAM, just as the seasonal flagships from Samsung and LG, and start you off with 32 GB of internal storage, apparently, so nothing to sniff at in the memory department. Moreover, the screen's pixel density is shaping up to be one of the best out there, joining the Galaxy S7 ranks with a 5.1" display that carries Quad HD resolution.
So far, so good, and these specs were largely expected, but the most intriguing part that got confirmed today is in the camera department, which has been the weak spot in most members of HTC's One flagship lineup so far. There were rumors that HTC 10 will sport a 12 MP camera with larger than typical sensor and wider aperture, just like the Galaxy S7, or the Nexus 5X before it.
As you can see in the specs table below, this is largely confirmed - the sensor is listed as 11 MP, but that's because it is set in a 4:3 format. All in all, we can seemingly expect great things from the HTC 10, at least on paper, so we can't wait for the company to unveil its next big thing next Tuesday, April 12th, and reveal the biggest mystery about it so far - its finalized design concept.
Thanks for the tip!
