All HTC 10 specs leak out in benchmarks - Snapdragon 820, 4GB RAM, and a new 12 MP camera

All HTC 10 specs leak out in benchmarks - Snapdragon 820, 4GB RAM, and a new 12 MP camera
If there's ever been any doubt about the existence and specifications of the upcoming HTC high-ender, the synthetic benchmark database entries are now colluding to disperse them. The HTC 10 has appeared in both the GFXBench and Geekbench databases, along with a complete specification list.

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!

This is common now, we know a lot about new smartphone even before they are released.

Isn't 64GB trendy anymore? Expandable storage or not, we should have bigger options as internal storage.

Yeah, we need more internal storage. 128GB Galaxy S6 here, 32GB is a joke.

Chill out its only a benchmark of the 32gb model. There will be a 64GB model according to taiwanese pre-order posters.

I think we knew all this long time ago, especially about camera and its almost same sensor as on Nexus 6p but it does include OIS.. and Front camera what we know is same as on S6 but again with OIS.. nothing new here

Software optimizations/post processing will make or break the camera, as for all devices.

Which ever will have a better camera among LG G5, HTC One10 or Huawei P9 Plus, will be my pick...

Right now overall the G5 beat the S7 but S7 is king in ultra low light. its question of taste mostly here i like picture thats look identical to the reality they where taken in.

Activate HDR on Nexus 6p in dark and see that king losing the crown. it just take a switch to turn game around.

Hopefully this snapdragon is not a "special" heat generating performance chip. Kudos to HTC for always trying something new even though it has not been working out for them lately.

No the camera is 4:3 in native; it is listed as 11MP because well, its GFXBench. It often screws this stuff up.

32GB? meh. .

If its allow to adopt sd card as internal storage i wont mind.

44. Shocky unregistered

Sure if they can bring out sdcards that offer 100mb/s read and the interface can handle it. We have neither right now.

So utterly boring. Another cookie cutter SD 820, 4Gb ram 12mp snapper running Android. Has Android led to the most boring smartphones on earth? It seems to have sucked all innovation out of the market.

So judging before seeing the thing in action? nice!

Hopefully quality is good. They may claim good specs like before but offer us shabby quality pictures,speakers,battery life, and lack of International 4G LTE Bands. Offer us powerful and loud speakers,good song camera sensor,20 bands of LTE bands for worldwide support,longer battery life,64 & 128GB of ROM option,High quality screen like what Samsung uses on their Galaxy S7 and dual SIM card with expandable memory.

"and reveal the biggest mystery about it so far - its finalized design concept." .... Really? Are you serious about this statement?. Everything (specs and design) about this phone is well known already and you all can be sure that there wont be any surprises there. The only thing remaining to know is pricing... and for HTC's good sake please be less than competition, otherwise HTC will follow Blackberry and Nokia' steps.
