HTC’s next flagship is going to called the 10 and we’ve seen a couple of details courtesy of evleaks and @onleaks. While the actual launch date is still up in the air, here’s a clearer leak of the HTC 10.
As seen on the earlier renders, the front gets a HTC One A9-like design that has a fingerprint scanner underneath the screen. Interestingly there are capacitive buttons for Back and Recent app accompanying the home button, which we think is a good move. The current HTC smartphones including the HTC One A9 and One M9+ use purely on-screen buttons along with its fingerprint scanner. Of course, some would definitely point out that this is starting to look a lot like a Samsung Galaxy smartphone.
Surrounding the device is a metal frame that’s visible from the front, which is somewhat similar to the Nexus 6P. The back of the device is where the HTC 10 stands out. It gets a curve back with a polished chamfered edge. If we take a look at the camera module, it seems to protrude a bit, while next to it appears to be a dual-tone LED flash and possibly a laser AutoFocus light. According to @evleaks, the HTC 10 will come in 4 colour options – namely carbon gray, glacier silver (with either black or white coloured front) and topaz gold.
There’s still no mention of an official launch but it could be after the Galaxy S7 fever starts to fizzle out. Huawei will be announcing its P9 flagship next month on 6 April.
