HTC 10 (M10) features "world first, world class" cameras - at least that's what HTC is saying

HTC 10 (M10) features
HTC is getting ready to unveil a brand new flagship smartphone that will replace the One M9, which is now 1 year old. Not long after telling us that the upcoming handset - called HTC 10 - would be a powerful device, now HTC wants the world to know that the phone features "world first, world class, front and back" cameras. We say features and not will feature because the HTC 10 (previously known as HTC M10, or HTC Perfume) is almost certainly a finished product - all that HTC needs to do now is to announce it.

It's not the first time when HTC talks about this. A few weeks back, a company exec said that its next flagship smartphone would offer a "very compelling camera experience." According to rumors, the rear camera of the HTC 10 should be a 12 MP UltraPixel one, but we don't have any details on the front-facing camera. Anyway, at the moment, we can't know exactly how the device's cameras will be "world first, world class." But we really hope HTC won't disappoint us - like it did with the much-hyped 4 MP UltraPixel camera of the One M7 and One M8 (this camera wasn't really on par with what other flagship smartphones had to offer).

Interesting cameras aside, the HTC 10 is expected to feature a 5.1-inch display with 1440 x 2560 pixels (Quad HD), Qualcomm's high-end Snapdragon 820 processor, fingerprint scanner, 4 GB of RAM, and up to 64 GB of internal memory. Android Marshmallow with Sense 8.0 UI should be on board. Design-wise, the HTC 10 seems to be a mix between the One A9 and One M9. 

April 19 is likely the date when the HTC 10 will be launched - or maybe just announced, we'll see. Until then, let us know if you think that HTC can finally deliver a great camera experience, will you?

I absolutely hope it is. Keep everyone else stepping up their game.

Unfortunately it probably won't be, if history has anything to say...

I think it does, the S7 and G5 are great phones as expected, even if one is ugly as hell lol.

front of HTC10 is also very ugly. But G5 will still take the crown.
As rumours state, HTC 10 might have imx377. Which makes it "World 2nd, World Class" camera. First was Nexus 6p/5X.

Pic number 4 doesn't look that bad, the M10 is nither ugly or that good looking, I'll just say it looks very much how you expect an HTC flagship to look.

IMX377 coupled with ois and laser autofocus Doggy will make it much better than the nexus 6P but will it be enuf we need to wait and see.

it will be quite enough and arse kicking in camera department if M10 will manage to step ahead of S7.

World's first is OIS on the front camera.

IMX378, LASER AF, PDAF and f/1.89 lens that paints a very good picture to me.

And i would hold those comments about the front back, same was said about the front of the A9 but that phone in real life is an absolute stunner even with the big bezels.

All those camera specs aren't HTC's weakness.

The weakness is in it's camera software. I mean, in it's poor IPA (Image Processing Algorithm).

The A9 and M9S have very decent IPA. But let's just disregard that and jump on the hate bandwagon.

Hating HTC is so trendy nowadays.

Great camera specs on paper. It's the return of a former MWC champ

That is exactly why I think it won't feature imx377, it might be a good thing because it might feature something even more advanced!

It was honestly just a joke to ruffle some feathers. I really hope that HTC has a great device to put out, but they are facing a very hard battle with the S7 being a very difficult device to beat.

I have the s7E. It's to tall and long. Looks stupid. Should've been wider.

I said S7 not the S7e I don't like the edge to be honest.

LOL, I agree, but HTC has been messed things for the past two years which many people thought they could have done better jobs easily.

I wish HTC successful this time or just go home and concentrated on VR. :P

I hope too, at least at the same level, here in Brazil s7 will arrive with exynos, and i wanted the snapdragon, also i like sense more than touchwiz.
also both don't have front facing speakers and uses capacitive buttons, that is a negative point for me.

Hi
All htc and lg fans outside of the USA, all sd820 CPU are junk next to the Samsung own CPU 8890 in the s7

it's being reported that the sd820 is crap slow next to the Samsung own CPU 8890

Seehttp://www.sammobile.com/2016/03/15/exynos-powered-galaxy-s7-appears-to-be-faster-than-its-snapdragon-820-counterpart/

I can report my s7 edge (uk) as had no slow downs at all and as not lagged and opens apps supper fast as per there video

This is nothing. The exynos craps all over the Sd 820 in battery tests.

From ars technica review:

"The surprise is that the Exynos version does much better in our battery test, with both Exynos models having about 14 percent longer times in the browser test and a whopping 46 percent longer time in the more GPU-heavy WebGL test."

Nothing is certain yet. But the inevitable anandtech article should make it clear.
