HTC 10 photos leaked from retail store in Taiwan, show the metal flagship in hands-on action
Mere hours stand between us and the HTC 10's official unveiling. Taiwan's loved and maligned smartphone maker has a new flagship device prime and ready for the busy market. At this point, nearly everything about the phone is known and we feel like there's little HTC can surprise us with, but nevertheless, the HTC 10 is shaping up to be an impressive smartphone built upon the company's strong metal design heritage and a bulletproof spec sheet. Being so close to the official unveiling, it's hardly puzzling that there are HTC 10 units floating in the wild already.
An obsessively polished slab of metal and hardware might.Various stores in Taiwan have begun sampling the smartphone to customers and at least one of them has shared the goodness with the Internet in the form of hands-on photos. The HTC 10 doesn't look like an iPhone. It's distinctly HTC, boasting the shape of the M8 and M8 but rocking a home button, lean bezels, and featuring chamfered stripes chiseled in the sides of its aluminum body. We can clearly see the dual LED flash and laser autofocus systems to the right of the protruding rear camera. HTC has made the sides look especially thin, and those power and volume keys look polished to perfection. It's an impressive, consistent design and we can't wait to see how it will hold up when we get the chance to actually hold the phone and get a feel for it!
Being the flagship in HTC's smartphone fleet, th HTC 10 is powered by Qualcomm's hot-shot Snapdragon 820 chipset, paired with 4GB of RAM. It's got the Sense 8 interface running on top of Android 6.1, and its main camera may or may not be a 12MP UltraPixel unit, combining a good level of detail with improved low-light performance thanks to those enlarged pixels. HTC has been hyping the smartphone's photo quality like crazy and we'll see whether its "obsessive" efforts in building it will really pay off shortly. For now, enjoy the photos!
