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.
