HTC 10 hits GFXBench, spills even more secrets

HTC 10 hits GFXBench, spills even more secrets
At this point, it's probably fair to say that anyone wanting to be surprised come April 12—when HTC will announce its new flagship—may want to close his eyes and cover his years, for the HTC 10 leaks are ruining what is otherwise a secret. From design renderings through hardware specifications, it's looking like company execs will spend most of their time onstage reiterating what insiders have been telling us these past few weeks.

Case in point: the HTC 10 was just caught testing the waters over at the GFXBench benchmark, seemingly confirming some key specs and even detailing a few new ones. Starting from the top, GFXBench's device info record reports a 5.1-inch smartphone with a Quad HD resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels, or a pixel pitch of 576 ppi—on par with the Galaxy S7. The captured device, as rumored, is powered by a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor, with four custom Kryo cores and an Adreno 530 GPU, and features 4GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. On the camera front, we've got a 12-megapixel main snapper, along with a 5-megapixel selfie shooter up front—a departure from the 20MP/4MP combo of the One M9.

So what's new? From what we see, the HTC 10 will add a pedometer to package—hopefully in concert with a comprehensive, proprietary Health app. We can't be a hundred percent positive, but it does look like the HTC 10 will also finally spell doom for the dedicated HDR mode of old and transition to a real-time HDR solution that will work automatically—a deceptively simple feature that's nevertheless a boon, especially for the average user. 

From where we're standing, and if we take the current heap of leaks for granted, the HTC 10 will be a competent flagship—at least on paper. Let's hope that the struggling Android pioneer really brought it this time, for fans sure are pining for a return.

the back of the device looks beautiful but the front looks like one of those BLU phones on boost mobile. no HDR photo ?

It has HDR and I don't think the front looks bad at all, it looks like the A9's front. Front of A9.

A9 was to much of a cop out for me to respect it as a flagship. no originality what so ever.

I agree. It's that giant chrome bezel like the S5 had. Looks horribly cheap.

Crap? Thats why samsung follow htc on putting bigger pixels on s7 which is same concept as Ultrapixel.. Samsung just refined the idea and they got excellent result. Software processing and algorythm plus the 4mp sensor is where htc failed.

Ultrapixel is simply a marketing term. They're using the IMX377(Found in Nexus) with OIS, PDAF, LAF and F/1.8 aperture. All of which is far from crap.

im not calling the hardware crap, just the way HTC writes its algorithms. which is why i referenced Sony and their horrible auto mode. great specs mean nothing with s#%&y software.

It's a marketing name, it just means big pixels, like the on the Galaxy S7 and iPhone 6s and others. I hope it's good but they need to drop the "Ultrapixel" BS, it's not necessary anymore.

or a gimmick, it might have been a positive feature to some but it never performed better then other devices at the time of its release.

It's not a gimmick, the term ultra pixel means bigger pixel size. Technically the galaxy S7/S7E,Nexus 6P/5X and iPhone 6/6 plus all have ultrapixel cameras.

my point is that HTC failed when they tried it.

Hope it has a ir sensor. Sucks that Samsung stopped giving their phones ir capabilities

2592x1944 video from Front facer!!!!! This should be a dream come true for vloggers. Most phones only offer 1080p video from front facer. Also love the other specs.

Apparently also has OIS on the front camera too so vloggers will love it.

Every Samsung Flagship phones since the Note 4 shoot in 2560x1440 video in front facing camera. So this ain't anything groundbreaking apart from the OIS. Its shoots in 2K not 4K or something. Its good to see more and more manufacturers join this boat

I wonder how many OEM's are there that most of the time in red and charging premium, more than best competitors ? That doesn't add up at all.

They need to make an additional version at 5.5' and I will buy one in a heartbeat. 5' is just too small for alot of people.

Looks great. But did anyone go to GFX website and compare its graphic performance with other phones? :O scores look relatively low. Really hope it is due to optimization :/

GPU benchmarks are shady anyway since they are way too much compute heavy as opposed to real games. And with vulkan coming soon makes them even more irrelevant. Same SoC will give you the same gaming performance, unless it's heavily throttled.
