HTC 10 stars in new pics, new renders, and gets support for that tweaked name
Some day soon, HTC will most likely announce plans for its next smartphone launch event, setting the stage for the arrival of the follow-up to last year’s One M9, and while we’ve been hearing plenty about what to expect from the phone over the past few months, and have had more than one opportunity to check out some leaked imagery of the new hardware, our picture of the phone is only now starting to become clear. That’s just as true for the handset’s name as anything else, and while there’s long been the suggestion that the phone might not launch as the One M10, it’s taken until today for us to come across a plausible candidate: the HTC 10. Now some new leaks attempt to reveal the flagship’s hardware in unprecedented detail, while also appearing to confirm that HTC 10 name.
What we’re seeing here largely corresponds with the last couple “One M10” leaks to surface: there’s the same wide, narrow home button/fingerprint scanner, rather than the more squat-looking button from an earlier render.
The beveled edge we first saw on one of those leaks, and later appeared to be referenced by HTC itself in a teaser for the phone, is also clearly visible, and in both the renders and the hands-on pics it’s easy to appreciate the curvature of the handset across its back.
The powered-on phone in these real-life pics give us a peek at that fingerprint scanner functionality with a lock-screen prompt, and a look at its settings reveals a newly familiar name.
Look for the HTC 10 to bring users a 5.15-inch quad HD display, 4GB of RAM, Snapdragon 820, and a 12MP UltraPixel camera.
