HTC’s next flagship phone — expected to be called the HTC 10 — will go on sale starting April 15, just three days after its confirmed unveiling, suggests a new report . HTC will announce the phone on Aril 12. According to the report, the phone will be available for buy in Taiwan from April 15. The report however makes no mention of its global availability.
The company has been on a leak-spree with respect to its upcoming #powerof10 phone for quite some time now. The most current piece of information leaked by the company suggests that the HTC 10 will come with its in-house BoomSound Audio technology. Whether or not it would sport dual-firing speakers is yet to be seen though. That said, the leak carries an images that hints the phone might actually come with dual speakers. The purported images of the HTC 10 have already shown off the speaker placement, one towards the bottom edge.
As per the HTC teaser, the ’10’ is seen carrying a top line of staggered audio elements along with a lower row of five larger, elongated ovals. This could mean that the HTC 10 may have the earpiece doubling up as a speaker out, while the lower stack may function as the second audio out. Whatever be the case, long term fans would surely be excited to see the return of BoomSound in the 10. The technology is one of the driving elements of HTC’s top-end phones and sort of a standard for top-notch audio.
That HTC will launch the phone on April 12 is already confirmed. The company will be hosting simultaneous events in New York, London, and Taipei on the said date where it will launch its #powerof10 phone. It will also be live streaming the launch proceedings via its official website.
Rumoured specs of the HTC 10 include: a 5.15-inch QHD Super LCD 5 display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor with 4GB of RAM and a 12-megapixel (UltraPixel) camera on the rear. This camera, says HTC will be very, very compelling.
