HTC teases “world class” cameras for its HTC 10 flagship

It’s been a while now since we had ourselves a proper HTC 10 teaser, after the manufacturer whetted our appetite with an initial teaser late last month, followed by a video teaser in early March. While the weeks that have followed have brought us plenty of leaks, as well as new rumors about when HTC is likely to finally launch this flagship, we haven’t seen any new promos from HTC itself. At least, that was true up until a couple of hours ago, when HTC released its very latest HTC 10 teaser, putting the spotlight on the phone’s camera performance.

HTC says that both front and back, the HTC 10 will have “world class” cameras. And while that sounds like a pretty standard boast, it’s the other line HTC is using here that’s caught our attention, with the company also calling the phone’s cameras a “world first.”

The less exciting way to interpret that would be HTC claiming that giving a smartphone two real “world class” cameras – and not skimping on the front-facer – is something we’ve yet to really see from a flagship handset. Whether or not that’s true is debatable, but HTC clearly has some strong feelings about just how superior the HTC 10’s camera offerings will be.

The other possibility is that HTC’s really talking about some new camera tech here – and gimmick or not, something that could be a selling point in and of itself. We’ve already heard to expect a pretty solid 12MP camera, but will this “very compelling camera experience” really break new ground? Right now, we’re just not sure, and hopefully HTC will share a little more in a future teaser to keep us on the right track.
