HTC 10 seen in benchmarks with Android 7.0 Nougat in tow

HTC 10 is a great device that perhaps doesn't get the attention it deserves because, well, it's an HTC. The company has an unfortunate knack for getting swept under the proverbial rug, and barely gets a look in among the Samsung Galaxies and Apple iPhones of the world. On a lighter note, the HTC 10 is expected to see Android 7.0 Nougat over the course of the next few months, which would raise its stock a tad whilst bringing joy to loyal owners of the device. If you're among those eagerly awaiting this particular event, a recent GFXBench sighting suggests the wheels are very much in motion.
As you can see to your right, all of the specs of the device marked "unknown" align with the HTC 10, which rolled out back in early April. As with most top-notch handsets of the past few months, the device includes Qualcomm's Snapdragon 820 SoC with Adreno 530 graphics alongside a healthy 4 gigs of RAM. There's also expandable storage, and currently, users get Android 6.0 Marshmallow with HTC's Sense 8.0 on top.
HTC has indicated that the 10 will be first on its list to get the update, but has only given a ballpark "Q4" time frame. We're now a week into the three-month projected release bracket, and this new sighting of an HTC running Nougat offers hope that a roll-out could be just around the corner. With that said, unforeseen delays are not exactly uncommon in the world of Android updates, so we're not getting our hopes up too much as yet. Additionally, if you're rocking a carrier-branded model, your chances of seeing any of Nougat before the year's end are slim-to-none.
Still, we'll keep our eyes peeled for more info on the subject, so stay tuned.
- Display 5.2" 1440 x 2560 pixels
- Camera 12 MP / 5 MP front
- Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 820, Quad-core, 2200 MHz
- Storage 32 GB + microSDXC
- Battery 3000 mAh(27h 3G talk time)
Anyone own this phone? How is it?

i have both but i still prefer the speaker of m9/m8 due to it is front firing speakers. quality of sound is great on 10 but not louder compared to m8/m9. and when using earphones/headphones, this is where the htc 10 killed the m9. plus i love the stock hi-res earphones of the 10

I had it but: - the screen not as good as high-end phone from other companies but slightly better than LG G5 ( I use polarized sunglasses while driving) - I had issues with switching between wifi and LTE, some slow or disconnect wifi connection. And the rest are good.

Stereo speakers? Yes. Like other HTC's? No. It has speakers like the iPhone 7. 4GB of RAM. Wireless charging? No. No metal phone has wireless charging.

My first HTC phone and have no complaints. Silver/White 64GB M10H (taiwan) with bootloader unlocked and S-OFF since first week. A minor LTE issue with my carrier, but easily solved with Android's magical flashing. It'll be nice to get Nougat before the end of the year.
