HTC 10 vs HTC One M9 vs HTC One A9: specs comparison


Well folks, the HTC 10 is finally out. No red carpets, no fanfare sounds, but the reality is – it's shaping up to be a pretty solid Android flagship, well capable of stealing away customers from other major players on the markets, or of re-igniting the fire in the hearts of HTC fans.

The HTC 10 comes after last year's HTC One M9 and HTC One A9 and seems to have adopted characteristics from both these handsets. Its body is much more like the One A9, with the arched back and all, while the inclusion of the fingerprint scanner on the bottom, together with two capacitive keys, seems to have evolved directly from the One A9's "chin" part.

So, how has hardware in top-tier HTC smartphones evolved over the past year? Before we get the chance to tought the phone and play with it in person, here are the cold-hard specs:
