New leak shows off HTC 10 in black

New leak shows off HTC 10 in black
In just two days, HTC will be unveiling its new flagship model, the HTC 10, and everyone is ready for just about anything. After running several teasers telling us that the company has some serious obsessions (to smartphone photography, battery life and audio to name a few), we could see something great on Tuesday, or another disappointment.

Specs-wise it sounds good with a 5.1-inch Super LCD 5 screen carrying a 1440 x 2560 QHD resolution. The Snapdragon 820 chipset is under the hood with a quad-core CPU and the Adreno 530 GPU. 4GB of RAM is inside along with a 12MP UltraPixel rear camera that includes OIS, laser auto focus, and 4K video recording. A 5MP Ultra Pixel front facing camera will snap selfies and handle video chats. A 3000mAh battery keeps the lights on, and Android 6.0.1 (with Sense 8 on top) will be pre-installed.

The latest leaked image of the HTC 10 shows the phone in black. The rear of the device has already been leaked a number of times and includes a round camera lens placed next to the LED flash and the laser focus; both are placed inside a lozenge shaped housing. The antenna lines remain noticeable on back. The front of the phone skips the usual HTC branding, which many fans have been hoping for, and there is a home button with a fingerprint scanner embedded inside.

The introduction of the HTC 10 will take place during an online event April 12th. We could see some more leaks tomorrow as we get closer to the actual unveiling of the phone. Check in often.

Best phone since M7? The third times the charm

IMX377+OIS+f/1.8 Could be the first time HTC has the best camera in over 3 years

The M7's camera was far from "the best" but definitely a great concept that was executed...not so well. I'd say because of that it did make me more alert to microns in a camera (other big name OEMs learned this too)

So? The only good thing I can see is the thick bezel at the bottom.

Bad news is it looks like HTC is desperate for money again and pre-installed Facebook on their smartphone with no uninstall option again. WTF HTC?? Launch this new model with Facebook pre-installed along with a 32gb model and see another failure coming your way!

No problem.. Everyone uses Facebook

Lol sure! As if the inclusion of Facebook totally destroys the usage experience of the phone! Seriously, these complaints aren't even serious. It is called nitpicking.

Easy, just disable...

29. Gadgetex

Posts: 182; Member since: Nov 10, 2013

Disable is pretty much useless. Facebook still runs in background. Accessing everything on your smartphone. Why do you think they removed the uninstall button and just gave the user a disable option?? As if people do not know how to download apps these days.

Facebook shouldnt run in the background if disable At least on stock Android, all disabled apps completely stop functioning AFAIK the problem is that OEMs install these apps on the system partition The system partition can't be touched (unless rooted) Which why no of those apps can be removed

same s**t Samsung is doing with their new phones, even if you disable everything that says "Face" on your system, a file ned ".Face" will keep popping up and collecting your data withour you knowing or permitting.

Let's be honest. The majority of folks who will own this phone use Facebook...and as I recall, Facebook was pre-installed on my Galaxy S6 too.

I like the look of this phone but it seems to look a bit too safe on the design.

Looks like minor improvements from the m9. Just as with the m7 and m8. The biggest downgrade is the design

even their X9 looks alot better than this one..

How is this "minor improvement"? Do you expect HTC to come up with the HTC 10 PC instead?

47. tiara6918

Posts: 2262; Member since: Apr 26, 2012

Can you look at the interface? It has barely changed ever since the m8. Don't be fooled by the downgraded design. This phone is just a minor improvement over its predecessors

50. perfectnine

The interface is pretty good and I don't see why HTC has to make noticeable changes. If the company is simply forcing itself to change because it has to, then the end product could be something that is not desirable. You said that it is a minor improvement, but to me it is a noticeably large change from the M9. I would admit that this is not much of a difference if you compare it to an S7 or G5.

The older version of sense was a lot better it was focusing on making something unique. Same goes with the design, peter chou(the ceo before) was obsessed with attention to detail, the m series was meant to standout with it's premium looks. But with the htc 10, this phone looks rubbish, it looks very uninspiring, the design is the biggest disappoitment for me. That's why I'm switching to another brand after my loyalty with them for three years

That's up to you then. To me, sense is and will always be the ui of my choice due to how simple it look. It is already unique and stands out as a professional and a ui with little bloatware. For the looks, I guess that is really up to perspectives. For me, the 10 looks great as it looks almost like a fusion between my previous M7 and my current Butterfly 2, and I have absolutely no problems with that. May you have a better time with other brands!

Its sad to see HTC really struggling to incorporate new designs among their phones. Scott Croyle and Jonah Becker left in 08 with Daniel Hundt being the only main man from the original 3.

Won't put a dent in S7 sales HTC is going to pull a blackberry move and price the device higher than its competitors then add another nail to its coffin

Sadly I feel the same.. Not only will it not be priced correctly it will not dent the s7 sales. I wish it would but somehow feel HTC will mess this up.

Well HTC is about to be dead soon. I wonder if I should start taking bets for who croaks first, HTC or Blackberry.

Yup, unless they really do get that Nexus contract we heard about last month.
