HTC 10 to feature “World Class” cameras for both front and back


HTC hasn’t been incredibly great with their cameras. The first gen HTC One M7 had introduced its Ultrapixel camera that boasts better low light shots with larger 2-micron pixels. However picture clarity suffers with its low 4MP resolution. Their latest HTC One A9 was an improvement with a 13MP f/2.0 shooter and it gets assisted with OIS.

For the new HTC 10 flagship, they are teasing better imaging with the power of 10.

The new teaser doesn’t show much but HTC is hinting that it will be a world first and a world class feature for both front and back cameras. As the industry begins to downsize on pixelcount and focus on pixel size, hopefully we get to see the next iteration of UltraPixel with improved image stabilisation. The competition has really up their game in recent years and HTC needs to beat the likes of the Galaxy S7 edge, iPhone 6s Plus, Lumia 950 XL and LG G4 if it wants to be considered world class in smartphone photography.

As far as specs go, the HTC 10 has been rumoured to go for a compact 5.1″ Quad HD display. The rest of the specs are similar to a top-spec Xiaomi Mi 5 with a Snapdragon 820 processor, 4GB RAM and 32GB of on-board storage. As seen in a couple of leaked shots, it will feature a front facing fingerprint scanner and home button combo along with 2 capacitive buttons. The boom sound stereo speakers is likely to be omitted and it will sport a reversible USB Type C port with Quick Charging.
