New HTC 10 video teaser says HTC is obsessed with providing you with the best ever smartphone camera (UPDATE)
On the day when Huawei introduced arguably the most ambitious camera system to grace the back of a smartphone, HTC disseminated another video teaser for its upcoming HTC 10 flagship model, focusing on the rear-facing camera. The manufacturer has been sensitive to talk about the quality of the rear camera on its flagship phones ever since it put a 4MP Ultrapixel camera on the back of the HTC One (M7).
UPDATE: A look at the end of the teaser shows that the HTC 10 could very well feature an UltraPixel sensor. The rear camera will also include OIS and take Hi-Res 4K video. Check out the still image from the video at the bottom of this article.
The teaser says that the manufacturer "is obsessed with providing you the best ever smartphone for shooting photos and videos." That is setting the bar pretty high; while some HTC fans are getting excited, the company has set some pretty high bars in the past and was unable to reach them. The HTC One M9, for example, was a major failure in the U.S. leaving HTC's financials and stock price in a shambles. But now, HTC says that it knows "how important a high quality camera is to you."
Other teasers say that the HTC 10 will be the "smoothest and fastest Android phone," and that it is also "fine tuning the highest quality sound possible." The device is rumored to have front-facing stereo speakers. Other rumored specs include a 5.1-inch Super LCD 5 display carrying a 1440 x 2560 resolution. The Snapdragon 820 SoC is said to be under the hood, featuring a quad-core CPU and the Adreno 530 GPU. 4GB of RAM is expected to be inside along with 32GB of native storage. A 12.3MP camera will grace the rear of the phone while the front-facing shooter should weigh in at 5MP. Android 6.0.1 will be pre-installed.
HTC is expected to unveil the HTC 10 on April 12th.
