We remain hopeful about HTC regaining its significance in the mobile industry but it’s really up to the company to impress us with the next flagship phone. We don’t really care if it’s called HTC One M10 or HTC One 10 or simply HTC 10. We just want the next HTC to live up to the promises as being teased since early this March. HTC has been saying that the phone will have a “world class” camera and a new BoomSound technology for audio.
We’ll discover the #Powerof10 on the official launch event this coming April 12. So far, we know that it will be powerful according to a benchmark test by AnTuTu. The HTC 10 came out on top scoring higher than the Xiaomi Mi 5 and the new Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge. The device was already seen in the wild in Taiwan and now we see it appearing in a GFXBench database.
The new benchmark document confirms the capacitive buttons and some specs as we previously mentioned. GFXBench lists the HTC 10 with a 5.1-inch Quad HD screen (1440 x 2560 pixel resolution), quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor, four custom Kryo cores, Adreno 530 GPU, 4GB RAM, 32GB built-in storage, 12MP main camera, 5MP front-facing camera, WiFi, GPS, Bluetooth, NFC, and the usual sensors (accelerometer, GPS, gyroscope, lightsensor, proximity, pedometer). The HTC 10 will run Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow out of the box.
HTC USA seems to be confident about this premium model and proudly tweeted that “Not all phones are created equal” and suggested that the HTC 10 is the “fastest and smoothest Android”.
That’s the #powerof10 according to HTC. We’ll know in less than two weeks time.
