You’ll hear a different type of boom sound on the HTC 10


The HTC 10 is finally launching next month on 12 April. We’ve seen countless of leaks of the new flagship and many were disappointed by the lack of a twin speaker grill.

HTC has always been our favourite for media consumption with its epic front-facing Boom Sound Stereo speakers. In its latest teaser, HTC is promising a new Boom and they say that you’re going to hear it.

If you look at the main image above, it looks like a pair of separate speaker grills. The tiny rounded cut holes above resembles the usual earpiece speaker grill while the bottom elongated holes looks like your typical loudspeaker grill found at the bottom of the device. As pointed out by reader Jack, there’s a possibility that HTC is going for an earpiece + bottom speaker combo for stereo audio playback.

Apparently HTC has done this combo on the Desire 825. With some virtual audio trickery, it gives a similar Boom Sound experience without the need of actually putting a pair up of speakers front.

What do you think? Can HTC pull off a “virtual” Boom Sound better than its current HTC One M7/M8/M9s?
