The phone that is set to launch on April 19 is supposed to have the Super LCD 5 and not an AMOLED screen as previously suggested. The battery will be a 3000 mAh which is slightly better than the 2,840mAh of the HTC M9 phone. The Super LCD 5 does not have an air gap between the outer glass and the display element. This produces less glare and power consumption and improved outdoor visibility.
The HTC 10 appears to have a 5.1-inch display, SD820 chipset, 4GB RAM, 32GB memory microSD, and a USB Type-C port. There will be a few new colour options including carbon gray, glacier silver with white face, glacier silver with black face or topaz gold. Most of the phone manufactures are inspired by Apple when it comes to pretty colours.
Samsung was the first to start shipping its 2016 flagship Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge phones which are powered by either Snapdragon 820 or Exynos 8890. LG is expected to start in the next week.
HTC is late to the game, just like last year. We hope that the phone might help the company increase its sales and financial numbers. A previous reports suggested that HTC A9 was selling rather well compared to some previous models.
HTC will probably have a healthy boost from the Vive VR kit too, which will help the company to stay afloat in 2016 and beyond. The HTC 10 looks a lot like last year's HTC A9 and the iPhone.
