Qualcomm all but confirms a 'performance' Snapdragon in HTC 10

Qualcomm's fastest Snapdragon 820 chipset has landed in most flagships this season (save for makers that produce their own silicon like Huawei or Samsung), and HTC won't be an exception, it seems. Come next Tuesday, April 12th, HTC is expected to unveil its newest darling, the so-called "10" handset, and Qualcomm just couldn't hold its bragging long enough.

The chip-maker boasted on Twitter that enigmatic "Performance 10" header you see above, but we've been bombarded with too much of those teasers in the past few days by HTC itself to be fooled that Qualcomm is just flashing its chipsets performance for no reason. The HTC 10 is said to sport Snapdragon 820, and the leaked renders depict exactly the same chassis outlines that Qualcomm is promoting here, so it's not hard to connect the dots, though we'll know for sure once HTC takes the stage this coming Tuesday.

It's the least Qualcomm can do after screwing Htc last year

I hope HTC will survive. It's always better to have more competition. I have some good memories with the Desire Z and 601. All they need to improve is the camera and not put such a high price tag on their phones. I like their Sense UI the most, compared to the competition. Still I use a Galaxy S6, because for me the camera is the most important thing in a phone. Please HTC improve the camera.

I don't think HTC has ever created so much hype around a phone like they are doing recently, this must be a really good phone. They are making me excited.

I find him far more tolerable when you read his poor grammar in a Yoda voice.

Can't wait to use the HTC 10 to smack that face of yours. If you don't like the phone, don't follow it. The amount of negativity coming from you is really uncalled for.

I hope that HTC will deliver on their claims... their past shows that they always failed to deliver... I hate their self proclaimed "best" word, because it turned out worst in the past...

I used to hate HTC and Sony for their ridiculous pricing (at least in my country). TBH I was somewhat happy to hear the bad financial result of HTC and Sony. However now I feel the smartphone market is too damn boring now without them. To choose a phone, there is almost 3 choices: Samsung, Apple and Chinese phones.

Now I'm opposite. I used to love htc and have had three flaghsip devices because of the stunning design but after seeing the rubbish cheap look of the 10, my current m9 will be my last htc phone
