HTC is one of those companies who everyone has much respect for and they make products that are fawned over. This however hasn’t always led to big sales for the company. I have used many of HTC’s flagship devices over the years and their design is always a thing of beauty! HTC is back with its latest flagship phone the HTC 10. They are holding an event this evening to talk about this new phone and we’ll be in attendance. Be sure to stay tuned for live coverage on our social media channels. I’ve been going through the specs for this new phone and I must say it looks to be firing on all cylinders!
The HTC 10 first off the back will be running Android 6 aka Marshmallow with HTC Sense. This is important as any new phone should have this by default at launch. The HTC 10 from a hardware standpoint is a phone you should definitely be looking at. Some of the bullet points that have caught my eye would be the 12MP HTC UltraPixel™ Laser autofocus Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) f/1.8 aperture, Dual tone LED flash 4K video recording with Hi-Res Audio, Slow motion video recording at 720p, Pro mode with manual control and 12-bit RAW format support on the camera up front. For the front camera we’re looking at 5MP Autofocus Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) f/1.8 aperture, Full HD 1080p video recording. Modes include Auto-HDR, Auto Selfie, Voice Selfie, and Live Make-Up. HTC looks like they really are getting the camera on point for this one. Boasting a DxOMark score of 88, they are looking to make a statement with the HTC 10.
Continuing down the specs for this one HTC BoomSound is still there, which was a concern that it wouldn’t be there from early leaked images of the design of this phone. But BoomSound is present, and they have taken it up a notch. The HTC 10 now has HTC BoomSound™ Hi-Fi Edition, Dolby Audio™ 4, Hi-Res Audio certified, Hi-Res Audio earphones, and Hi-Res Audio stereo recording. If listening to music on your phone is your thing, this appears to be the phone that you want to be using. You’ll also have the latest Snapdragon processor (the 820 processor), 4GB RAM and MicroSD card support (up to 2TB with Flex storage support). And there will be a fingerprint scanner, though on the front it looks like. If you have started to collect some Type-C USB cables to prepare for the coming switch, you be able to use them for the HTC 10 as it looks like this has a Type-C port as well.
There is literally a ton more and this looks like this will be an impressive phone to own. From pictures so far it looks sexy, but will comment more on that when we see it first hand at the event later tonight. The HTC 10 will come in either 32GB or 64GB for storage. The unlocked version will be available for pre-order today on www.htc.com for $699, with other carriers announcing pricing and dates later. Definitely stay tuned and check in with us tonight on Instagram and Twitter for live coverage from the event!
