The wait is finally over, HTC has announced its flagship for 2016 and it is known as HTC 10. HTC says goodbye to One series with the launch of this phone.
The HTC 10 comes with the latest chipset, featured in all flagships of 2016, the Snapdragon 820. The CPU inside is Dual-core 2.15 GHz Kryo & dual-core 1.6 GHz Kryo with Adreno 530 GPU. The RAM is 4 GB for smooth multitasking. Internal storage is either 32 GB or 64 GB and there is, thankfully, a Micro SD card slot for memory expansion up to 200 GB. The phone is not water or dust proof like Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 edge.
The display is 5.2 inch with 2K resolution and protected by curved Gorilla Glass.
The camera is the main focus here. It comes with 12 MP UltraPixel camera. The first HTC One device, the One M7, came with only 4 MP UltraPixel camera. So the HTC 10 is the huge improvement over HTC One M7. The camera has Optical Image Stabilization and laser auto focus. Dual LED flash is also present for better low light images. It can record 4K videos. 720p slo-mo videos can also be recorded with the back camera.
The front camera is 5 MP and for the first time ever, the front camera in 10 has Optical Image Stabilization. Front camera is also auto focus. HTC put a lot of attention on front camera this time. It has f/1.8 aperture. Front camera can record 1080p videos.
Boom Sound speakers are back in the device. The pair of speakers works as two-way speakers instead of stereo speakers giving an amazing, high definition sound effect.
It comes with Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box and future updates are promised for two years. Fingerprint sensor is also present.
The battery is 3000 mAh which supports QuickCharge 3.0 and can charge up to 50% in just 30 minutes. So you are good to go for several hours by charging your phone for 30 minutes only. The USB port is USB Type-C which is becoming the standard now for phones.
