HTC 10 is unveiled with 12MP UltraPixel 2 camera and BoomSound speakers in addition to optical image stabilization support for the front-facing camera in Carbon Grey, Glacier Silver, Topaz Gold, and Camellia Red color variants. Even though you can pre-order the device starting today at $700, the handset will ship only from May.
With a punch line “inspired by light and sculpted to perfection” as per the press release leaked just minutes before the official launch, HTC 10 offers a full glass front that uniquely merges with the metal body. According to official sources, the latest flagship HTC 10 offers not only a new metal design but also a better camera and enhanced performance.
Moreover, the HTC 10 was capable of withstanding over 168 hours of extreme temperature tests, ranging from -20°C (-4°F) to 60°C (140°F), including over 10,000 drops, bend, scratch, and corrosion tests. As per the data released by the company, it seems that you need not require any particular case to accommodate the device.
On the specifications front, HTC 10 is equipped with a 5.2-inch Quad HD (2560 x 1440) Super LCD 5 display, Snapdragon 820, 4GB RAM, fingerprint sensor, and sensor hub loaded with Android 6.0 Marshmallow on top of HTC Sense UI.
