Pre-orders for unlocked HTC 10 are now shipping in the US
According to HTC USA’s Twitter account, orders are being fulfilled as they were received. Orders are being shipped via FedEx, and should begin landing at your doorstep tomorrow. That means you can take some nifty selfies with your friends with the shiny new 5MP camera with optical image stabilization.
That feature alone is probably going to come in handy once the drinking games kick in while celebrating Cinco de Mayo. The main 12MP “UltraPixel” camera also has OIS with laser assisted autofocus. Then there is the premium build quality with a metal chassis in true HTC fashion.
Thankfully, the beauty of the HTC 10 is more than skin deep. We have already shared with you how impressed we were with the performance of the device thanks to the wicked hardware inside, like the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 CPU and 4GB of RAM. Even better is seeing the results of HTC’s collaboration with Google to do away with redundancies in the user experience.
HTC’s Sense UI 8.0 is about as close to stock Android we are likely to see from an OEM without it actually being stock Android. It is a no nonsense approach, and others should take a note from this page of HTC’s playbook.
If you are an AT&T customer, ordering direct from HTC is the only option. T-Mobile, Sprint, and Verizon will all be selling the HTC 10, with Big Red first on the scene. We have seen buzz around the interwebs that Verizon pre-orders have also begun to ship.
