Last week brought us some exciting new chapters in the story of the road to HTC’s next flagship, starting with a change of name: rather that One M10, what if the manufacturer released the smartphone simply as the HTC 10? That new name was followed by the release of some of the best imagery of the handset to date, including both hands-on pics and some legitimate-looking renders. And if you were to take a moment and look closely at that render, you might notice the system date set for April 19: did we have our first real hint at when to expect a launch event? As we wait to see if HTC will confirm that theory, we’ve got the arrival of some new HTC 10 media to keep us busy, upon the publication of some new renders.
We’ve already seen the phone’s hardware in a couple shades, and these new renders expand on those to four patterns, in combinations of white, black, and gold.
We’re not sure to what extent it speaks to the legitimacy of these renders, but we have to note that there are some small inconsistencies here, both in the terms of the screenshots attached to the renders, and the way they compare to last week’s publication. That may be a consequence of different sourcing, or there’s the possibility that some of these are mock-ups based on pics that couldn’t be published in their original forms for whatever reason. Even if some of these renders are a little suspect, at least, that doesn’t necessarily mean the color options they’re depicting are wrong.
For now, anyway, this is what we’ve got. With over a month to go until the presumed launch date, though, that means plenty of time to come up with some fresh corroboration for these HTC 10 colors.
