More HTC 10 info spilled ahead of launch

Even more details and images have emerged of the HTC 10 ahead of its launch.

HTC’s new flagship will be officially revealed on April 12 – that’s tomorrow – but we already appear to have seen it from all angles and discovered its core specs.

Now we’ve had arguably the best peak yet courtesy of Dutch website GSMHelpdesk. In addition to hands-on images of the redesigned phone and confirmation of that HTC 10 name (there’s no ‘One M’ this year), the report claims that we’ll see the HTC 10 hitting shops worldwide in mid-May.

We get a good look at both the front and back of the phone, with the former showing hints of the iPhone 6S and the latter once again revealing those distinctive exaggerated bevels.

The report also offers a run through of the core specs, confirming what had been reported previously. It seems there’ll be a Snapdragon 820 CPU, 4GB of RAM, and a choice of 32GB or 64GB – hopefully Samsung and LG are listening – with microSD expansion. It’ll also have a USB Type-C connection and a 3,000mAh battery with Fast Charge 3.0 technology.

There’s confirmation that we’ll be looking at a 12-megapixel main camera – not the 23-megapixel unit that was rumoured earlier – with a single f/1.8 aperture lens, OIS (which the 5-megapixel front-facing camera may also have), and laser autofocus.

In addition, the report claims that the HTC 10 will be the first phone to enable 24-bit high-res stereo sound capture for its videos.

Countering earlier fears that HTC was ditching its beloved BoomSound stereo speakers for its sleek new design, the report claims that the HTC 10 will actually have better sound than the HTC One M9.

With the phone itself set to launch tomorrow, this could be the final major leak in a series of HTC 10 info splurges – but we probably wouldn’t bet on that.
