Check out these high quality, leak-based renders of the HTC 10 (M10)
Since the launch of the much lauded One M7 almost three years ago, HTC has struggled to woo the consumer market. Lack of significant design alterations and generally hit-and-miss camera tech have been cited as key reasons behind the company's slump in the smartphone arena. But the Taiwanese firm is not ready to give up just yet, with recent fighting talk having touted a device with "world first, world class" camera capabilities. As for the handset's appearance, we've had the odd sighting, and now one designer has delivered some high-res mock-ups to give a clear picture of what's next from HTC

Though these are just renders, they are in-keeping with what we've seen and heard so far. Very similar to a few snaps of the device shared recently by OnLeaks, it would seem that HTC has found a good balance between revitalizing the traditional form factor while preserving the company's agreeable design ethos. Though expected to arrive in an assortment of fanciful shades, this concept by Leoside only offers a look at what the device could look like in the more conservative black / gray and silver combos. Still, with the Galaxy S7 duo having soaked up the plaudits for their unquestionably premier design, the HTC 10 could, based on these images, give Sammy et al more than a run for their money. 

There's no telling whether the leaks, and therefore these renders, are anywhere close to what HTC has in the works. Still, if the company's next big thing did look like the renders seen below, would you be tempted to part with your money?

Do let us know what you think of these mock-ups via the comments.

That's, right, they keep an eye for my posts and then make articles about it, it's happened many times, but as its good news, they may not make one, it's been over a day now with no article

Although there is a HUGE omission from that Dxomark test and score. Which sensor was tested? The Sony or the Samsung fabbed sensor? I sent them an email, asking for clarification. As the thread on XDA cleary shows...there is a very noticeable difference between the two sensors. Even the field of view is slightly different between the two. Seems as if the majority consensus is saying the Sony sensor is a tad bit better in some regards. That Dxomark score is in limbo until we know what sensor they used.

maybe LG G5 can beat that :-/ btw, I wonder when one phone hit 100 scores (since each new best camera always have at least 1 point higher than the last best camera) will they continue to 101, 102, ... ? but maybe that wont happen until Galaxy S15

G5's main rear sensor is the same one as last year so I doubt it.

I too, but isn't it good to try out capacitive ones? It's what I do. It's what tech nerds do.

My last three phones had on screen buttons. Using capacitive ones now (S7 Edge). Despite being a splendid phone, one of my criticisms are those buttons (and that they are in the wrong order)

They are not in the wrong order. Many of us prefer back button to be closer to a thumb. And unless a phone is totally bezel-less(which doesn't happen these days), it is clearly illogical to waste screen space for buttons and leaving unused bezel underneath.

34. RebelwithoutaClue unregistered

While it is closer to the thumb, having the back button on the left feels more natural and you don't have to bend the thumb that much to press it. For me (and according to Google's standard) they are in the wrong order. And you don't waste screen space, since most apps can open full screen mode (or forced into it). And onscreen buttons are more customizable (not only in looks but also in numbers), many occasion I have 5 buttons instead of 3 on my other phone (G3)

U from the US? The reason for asking the question is that to the British and to the folks from Asia there is a different take on the natural the way electric switches are turned on, the way a bottle of Shampoo/Oil is placed on a table, the direction of traffic movement on the Roads, everything is the reverse...the placement of back button is also in the other side and it feels natural to us folks out here. It is subjective but I prefer back button on the right.

57. RebelwithoutaClue unregistered

No I'm from the Netherlands. Don't know if our light switches are different and as you can see, I don't use shampoo. But we drive on the right side of the road. I guess the side of the back button is personal for everyone (regardless of place of birth).

Yeah it is personal, I am from North Africa and the first thing I did was changing the order from left to right, I use back button a lot so I feel my thumb doing it easily on right, and for multitasking I instead use "Edge launcher" which I change to the right side too :D

Everyone does. People that don't never used the on-screen navigation... That's the only thing that I hate about my new GS7E.

Surely there will be an option to use On-Screen buttons for you.

41. engineer-1701d unregistered

there should be no buttons home button with finger scanner under front glass. not a fan of the this really wanted to be not feeling my gs7 this year time to change again. but it looks like the m7 and m8 had a baby and found out you got a bit of apple speakers on your ass for your finger to cover when using it.

Your concept isn't as creative as you paint it to be. Let OEMs try out new stuffs.
