HTC 10 Rumor Roundup: Promo video leaked ahead of the official launch

A new video featuring the HTC 10 has surfaced online which incidentally is just a day prior to the official launch of the company’s 2016 flagship phone.

The video, however, does not surprise at all but confirms what has already known, thanks to the incessant stream of rumors and speculation that we have been treated with during the last few weeks.

Going by the leaked video, the HTC 10 shares a lot of similarity with the A9 with the latter itself drawing heavily from the looks of Apple’s iPhone.

However, the real surprise could be at the rear end which features chamfered edges, quite unlike any handset by the Taiwanese manufacturer in recent times. The new design element also brings along a fresh new perspective to the way flagship material has been crafted off late.

That apart, the other notable aspect at the rear is the camera bump along with the HTC 10 badging. The company has already stated they are banking on the imaging attributes of the handset to turn around its fortunes in the smartphone segment. And for that, the new HTC 10 has been endowed with a 12-megapixel rear camera featuring an UltraPixel sensor. The camera also comes with a laser autofocus along with OIS to allow for the best possible shots.

Even the 5MP front facing shooter also comes with OIS for better selfie shots.

Those apart, the rest of details that we have known of the HTC 10 so far include a Snapdragon 820 chipset and 4 GB of RAM. The handset also features a 3,000mAh power source, the biggest that we have known in any HTC phone. The new handset is also rated for IP78 levels of water and dust proofing and features a metal build for better durability. The phone runs Android 6.0 marshmallow right out of the box.

Also, it’s going to be a 5.2-inch 1440 x 2560 pixel QHD display making up the front that otherwise offers a simple layout with just the physical home button below the display. The home button also hides a fingerprint scanner though the very inclusion of it comes at the cost of the front-facing Boom sound speakers the lack of which is sure to irk many a music buff out there.

We get to the real thing just later today. So keep watching.
