Unlike a lot of other smartphone manufacturers, like LG and Samsung, HTC did not unveil their latest flagship phone at Mobile World Congress last month. However, most believe that HTC will unveil their newest flagship, but details are sketchy when it comes to the release date and specs. In fact, the name isn't really known as the follow-up to the HTC One M9 could be the HTC One M10, the HTC M10, or simply the HTC 10. This is what is known so far about the Release Date and Spec of HTC's flagship phone.
According to Phone Arena, the HTC 10 will be officially announced on April 12, as there will be a major press event on that day. As far as the actual release date, the HTC 10 will likely be launched in April 15 in Taiwan. Taiwan is, of course, HTC's home country, and probably will be released in North America, Europe, and other regions.
As far as the specs are concerned, a report from SlashGear reveals that the HTC 10 could be at the top of the pack, ahead of Xiaomi MI 5 and possibly even the Samsung Galaxy S7. Images of the HTC 10 device show a large display as well as an interesting home button that could possibly be a fingerprint scanner. The fingerprint scanner is practically a standard feature for new smartphones, so this is pretty expected.
As for the actual size of the display, it is at 5.15 inches and a QHD. The processor is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820, Adreno 530 GPU with 4GB of RAM. The battery is 3,500 mAh and there will be a Type-C USB. The primary camera will be a Sony IMX337 with 12 Megapixels, and the secondary front-facing will be at 8 Megapixels and capable of 1080p video. The primary camera could be capable of 35 fps video speed at a full resolution or 60 fps in 4K2K mode, similar to the camera on the Nexus 6P. As far as any other specs are concerned, it looks like GSM Arena already has them up.
It is important to note that phones that are rumored often change their specs in between rumors of their release date and their actual release date. Therefore, all of these specs should be taken with a grain of salt. Still, as someone who is a user of the HTC One M9, I am personally anxious to see what new improvements will be made to the HTC One M10, or the HTC M10, or simply the HTC 10. The proper name of the device would be a good place to start.
