More HTC 10 details emerge: Super LCD 5 display and 3000 mAh battery

More HTC 10 details emerge: Super LCD 5 display and 3000 mAh battery
The ever-reliable Evan Blass has dished a few more alleged details on the forthcoming HTC 10. The display, he notes via Twitter, will be of the Super LCD 5 variety as opposed to AMOLED, while the device itself will be powered by a 3000 mAh battery. 

The main apparent difference between Super LCD and traditional LCD is that no air gap exists between the outer glass and the actual display component. This helps to reduce glare and thus increase visibility, while also using less power. The display type is primarily employed by HTC, and given the company's ongoing financial woes, the panel – and the rest of the device, for that matter – will need to impress. 

HTC has already suggested that the 10's camera will be something to savor. The idea of a "world first, world class" shooter is rather exciting, though we have heard similar rumblings of HTC camera tech in the past – only to be disappointed. 

A previous sighting offered a fairly good look at what HTC's next flagship may look like in the flesh, while a talented designer has since offered some beautiful, accurate-looking renders of the handset from every angle. 

As well as the much-hyped rear camera – just the one this time, apparently – the Super LCD display will reportedly be a quad-HD effort boasting a resolution of 1440 x 2560. Under the hood, Qualcomm's Snapdragon 820 processor will likely be the brains of the operation, while a fingerprint sensor may be baked into the home button. 

There will likely be a handful of different colors on offer. If you do have your eye on this handset, though, you'll probably have a bit of a wait on. It's not set to launch until April 19th, which is still a good month away. 

One has to wonder, then, how many potential HTC 10 buyers will already be wielding a Samsung Galaxy S7, S7 edge or LG G5 by that time.

Nothing fancy, I'd say... But then again, one can't except innovation form copy cats such as HTC or Xiaomi... G'Day!

What have they been copying? They were the first one to try larger pixel cameras (ultrapixel, although they went with only a 4mp unit), and they had the metal body with antenna lines before anyone else. They may not be as successful as of late, but I don't recall them being a copycat anymore than anyone else in the industry.

Nobody (with a functioning brain) trusts, or even cares, for that matter, what HTC promises or claims for its next flagship phone. It's the same sh*t every year. New "amazing", "world-first", "never-before", "extraordinary" tech and then it falls flat with a wooden stump up its a** upon release.

Nobody trusts doesn't mean it is false. The truth is: iphone copies htc.

And tell me, what does any of your rant have to do with any of what I said. I asked what they copied, and pointed out that they have been first in a few things. I never said it was the best or anything of the sort. I don't own an HTC device, and haven't since the Rezound. However, that doesn't mean I can't clear up a miscommunication ception about them. The same things you said about HTC could be said about numerous other manufacturers as well. So unless you can prove that they repeatedly copy from other companies more seriously than anyone else, which is what my post was about, then direct your statement somewhere else.

They were also the ones to push forward with audio quality (speakers, amps for headphones). They were the ones to push wide aperture lens on cameras (One X had a f/2 lens in 2012), Smart flash that adjusts the power according to the distance, the ones to push for better front facing cameras (wide angle lens, Ultrapixel front facer or 13mp on Desire Eye. The ones that pushed for a good camera UI and experience (dedicated imagechip to speed up image capture), first with slow-motion video, ZOE, software quality focus, software update commitments (Even the old mid-ranger Desire 816 has Marshmallow...). I think HTC is severely underrated, if they released a "perfect" phone people would still be very tough to them, they are the under dogs of the phone industry and the criticism is pathetic at most of the times, it's by uninformed so called "tech enthusiasts", if they were enthusiasts they wouldn't put down any brand just because they personally hate them. Competition is always good, it's what makes everyone work harder to give us better stuff.

Like the article said, HTC has promised a world class camera before, and it was disappointing. I think HT is begin outclassed by Samsung, LG etc.... The only thing that might save/prolong HTC's life is if they manage to get the nexus contract with Google.

HTC is outclassed in paying the media and advertising, there products are always great and interface is quite smooth rather than laggy sammy. Who every bashing HTC either they read it on web or never owned a HTC. When it comes to copying, iphone took antena lines from HTC and there was a secret agreement between HTC and iphone before iphone6 got released. Coming to samsung, just look at S6, combine iphon6 and xperia Z = samsung 6....

Not only it's a copy of an iPhone and samsung home button, the back is hideous, and guess what? No amoled, and all the lies about the camera.

No IP68? :( Btw, the resolution should have been 1080p. 1440p is only good for Samsung's amoled as it has less subpixels.

Htc should just go home. One m9 was trash, the 10 or whatever m10 is just a whole new level of crap. Stop kidding yourself htc. My first and my last htc device hd 7 was nothing but s**t.
