Photos of the latest flagship smartphone from HTC (nicknamed the HTC 10) are surfacing in the Internet this week. The images were leaked by @OnLeaks via Twitter, and the pictures basically show a prototype mobile device that appears to feature a fingerprint reader, a dedicated menu, buttons on the rear side, a matte black finish, and a USB Type C charging port.
According to the tweet, the HTC 10 smartphone will feature a 5.15 inch QHD display screen, aided with a 12 megapixel camera on the rear side. Inside its frame, the device is said to house a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 chip set and an Adreno 530 graphics processing unit (GPU), supported with 4 gigabytes of random access memory (RAM).
As far as looks go, the HTC 10 does not seem to veer far away from the usual design adopted by the Taiwanese phone maker for most of its mobile devices. As for the handset’s official name, there may be little doubt left that it is really HTC 10 -- @OnLeaks has even tweeted an image of the device’s name on the display screen.
@Evleaks, another Twitter user who is also fond of leaking images and information about smartphone devices, has even joined in on the fun. He tweeted a promotional image of the yet to be announced HTC 10, and the device seems to be consistent with the smartphone leaked by @OnLeaks. The only difference is that the image leaked by @Evleaks shows a device that possesses a silver and white finish.
So far, the first quarter of the year has been filled with various unveilings of new flagship devices from some of the biggest names in the smartphone industry. Indeed, industry leader Samsung had announced its two newest flagship devices, the Galaxy S7 and the Galaxy S7 Edge, during this year’s Mobile World Congress (MWC) held in the city of Barcelona in Spain. LG also took the opportunity to introduce its own flagship device, the LG G5, during the same tech conference.
Surprisingly, HTC chose not to unveil anything during MWC 2016. Instead, the Taiwan based mobile manufacturer opted to highlight its Vive virtual reality (VR) handset, and is now accepting preorders for the device. But Chialin Chang, the company’s chief financial officer, has at least hinted that its new flagship device will offer a much improved smartphone camera experience. For years, HTC had taken some flak regarding the quality of its cameras, so its fans must be glad to know that the phone maker is doing something about it for its latest smartphone offering.
