HTC says the (One M)10 features "the best Boom Sound yet"

HTC says the (One M)10 features
Next week, on April 12, HTC will finally unveil its next-gen flagship smartphone, most likely called HTC 10 (not One M10, as previously believed). Last month, HTC confirmed that the upcoming handset would feature some kind of new "boom" sound, and today the company is, once again, talking about the device's audio capabilities. 

In a teaser video posted on Twitter (embedded below), HTC says it's "obsessed with sound", and wants customers to experience "flawless high-fidelity" audio on their handset. Thus, HTC promises "the best BoomSound yet" for those who will buy its new smartphone. 

BoomSound was a defining feature on HTC's older flagship smartphones, including last year's One M9, so we're curious to see exactly how it's been improved, especially since the HTC 10 seems to have smaller front-facing speakers compared to its predecessors.

Allegedly  sporting a 5.1-inch Quad HD Super LCD 5 display, the HTC 10 is probably powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor. According to HTC, the handset can offer "the fastest and smoothest" Android experience around, while its rear and front cameras should be "world first, world class."

Based on the leaked photos and renders we've seen until now, the HTC 10 should be available in several color variants, including black, silver, white, and gold (or maybe rose gold). The handset could go on sale as soon as April 15, though this may happen only in Taiwan, with other markets getting the device a bit later.

Alongside the HTC 10 flagship, on April 12, HTC might also announce a new mid-range Desire smartphone, though we don't know too much about this particular device. Needless to say, we'll be here to let you know all about HTC's upcoming smartphones as soon as official details are available.

MQA seems to be an audio format, like MP3 etc, not actually a physical sound reproduction technology so doesn't really tell us that much about the speakers in the HTC 10. I would imagine from the layout that the HTC will either be stereo in a slightly awkward earpiece + bottom firing speaker configuration or perhaps mono with earpiece offering the higher frequencies facing forwards where they matter and the lower frequencies from the potentially larger speaker at the bottom... The second option having more potential as stereo is largely pointless from a small device, especially one that can be used either horizontally or vertically.

bulls**t LG V10 is The KING of all phones

While the V10 is good, it only has a Snapdragon 808. The Galaxy S7 runs absolute circles around it, the LG G5 runs circles around it, and even the Galaxy Note 5 is a decent contender (more power, no SD slot/removable battery)

G5 is faster all around than S7 so yeah no wonder...

no way ! King in Sound ! have you tried any HTC before ? man every LG I've owned from g2 , g3 , g4 had a terrible sound ,and I mean it! the highest volume is just too low when you are outside and distorted even to samsung. no way it will come any how near to HTC . I think there is a reason for the new DAC for G5 . and all I see in online reviews is that LG has awesome sound quality . but I didn't hear it .it is not bad but not even close to good . so mostly the V10 will be the same when it comes to sound ., a little bit better maybe ! if you listen to very low sound levels on in ear headphone in your room without equalizer , then it sounds okay . I would say LG phones are decent, and good buy but not near to be king , I loved the back buttons that what keept me buying LG , outside that ,screen and sound quality is the weak points in LG phones , very poor compared to samsung amoled and HTC sound .

LG V10 speaker is amazing but yeah but headphone sound volume is too low...

Headphone sound volume is on the lower side depends on which headphone you are using. If you plug in a headphone that is harder to drive, then amp will kick in and will play at a higher volume

maybe somehow 360 stereo like sound . maybe earpiece and the speaker next to charging port together so front and side ! I wish it remains stereo any how .

it will be some akward 90 degree sound setup.. one is firing right in from of you, the other will fire 90 degree away from you, the one who fire it directly will sound higher than the other if both release sound with same dB.. maybe it can automatically adjust loudness of each speaker to emulate stereo setup from user point of view (or point of hear in this case) it'll be even better if they actually have another speaker grill on top side of the phone.. and front ear piece is for bass driver, lol

Why is no one paying attention to the first picture in the gallery. The earpiece acts as one speaker, while the bottom one acts as the second. All they have to do is fire the sound from the bottom speaker diagonally and boom (pun intended) you have stereo speakers

Meh....yet more obnoxious people blasting their phone audio in public.....annoying as heck... wear ear phones or whatever, rest of us don't to listen to your music blasting at full speaker volume.

I hope is not just marketing, if they can deliver the fastest and smoothest android, the best boomsound (still can't believe how a single speaker will do this), and the best camera it will be my next phone.
