HTC has officially announced launched its flagship phone of 2016 — the HTC 10. It comes with a 5.2-inch QuadHD display, Snapdragon 820 SoC, and 4GB of RAM like seen on recently launched high-end phones from Samsung and LG .
The HTC 10 comes with a 12 ultrapixel camera with 1.55um pixels. It comes with Laser autofocus, optical image stabilization (OIS), f/1.8 aperture, and dual tone LED flash. The company claims that the camera can be launched in just 0.6 seconds. The phone also comes with a 5MP front camera and HTC says it’s a first front camera with OIS.
As far as design is concerned, the HTC 10 comes with a full metal body and sports a home button right below the display with a fingerprint sensor embedded into it. However, unlike last year’s flagship, the HTC 10 lacks front firing speakers, but still has boom sound speakers; this time supplemented by the top main speaker and bottom subwoofer.
The HTC 10 runs Android Marshmallow 6.0.1 with HTC Sense 8.0 UI. It has a 3000mAh non-removable battery with quick charge 3.0 support. Color options for the HTC 10 include Carbon Grey, Glacier Silver, Topaz Gold, and Camellia Red color. The phone is priced at US$699 for the 32GB variant and will be available for purchase starting first week of May.
