by • April 11, 2016 • No Comments

After Samsung, LG and Huawei, it is actually HTC’s turn to commence its flagship phone for 2016: the HTC 10. The brand new handset brings a redesigned all-metal body, a camera which HTC calls the most in the world, Hi-Res 24-bit audio and a fingerprint scanner.

  • The phone packs a 12MP rear camera which HTC says is the most on the market
  • Both front and back cameras get optical image stabilization for reducing camera shake
  • HTC says the battery is good for two days of use, but we'll believe it when ...
  • The phone showcases an all-aluminum chassis and an LCD glass front panel

Update: Our hands-on with the HTC 10 is now live.

HTC’s official teasers preceding at present dropped a few heavy hints of camera innovation and battery life and the finished product follows those prompts. Backing up its claims of having “the most smartphone camera on the market on the market at present,” the HTC 10’s 12 MP rear camera comes with optical image stabilization (OIS), dual LED flash, an F1.8 aperture lens and laser focusing, as well as a selection of high end shooting modes and RAW export capabilities.

The front 5 MP camera isn’t too bad either, as it in addition has OIS and a special UltraSelfie mode which brightens up your selfie pics. The 10 sees HTC returning to the thought of UltraPixels – fewer pixels, but should in theory let in additional light and manufacture for a advantageous shot.

As for how long you are going to be able-bodied to go between charges, the HTC 10 is fitted with a 3,000 mAh battery which its developer says can donate you up to two days of use. Thanks to the swift charging capabilities created into the handset, you can get a 50 percent charge in just 30 minutes, according to HTC.

Of course there’s nothing new in a developer talking up the long life of its smartphone batteries and the high end of the images you can shoot with the camera (see Huawei, just last week) and so we can just quite judge the HTC 10 when we get accident to donate it a full review. We can be getting a few hands-on time with the phone later at present, so remain tuned.

The Taiwanese firm is in addition keen to promote the superb audio innovation created into the phone. Hi-Res audio certified by the Japan Audio Society, 24-bit DAC and three amps for every stereo speaker and the headphone jack. There’s actually a pair of Hi-Res headphones in the box, so audiophiles can find their ears pricking up.

With a 5.2-inch screen, running at a QHD resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels, the display dimensions sits a fewwhere in the middle of the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus (though it packs in additional pixels). As on previous models, IPS LCD tech is utilized for the screen, dubbed Super LCD 5. There’s a fingerprint sensor under the recessed Home button on the front too.

Those are the headline showcases, but here’s the tiny print as far as the internals go: a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 CPU, 4 GB of RAM and either 32 GB or 64 GB of internal storage space (external memory cards up to 2 TB are in addition supported). Measuring 145.9 mm x 71.9 mm x 9 mm (5.7 x 2.8 x 9 mm), the HTC M10 weighs in at 161 g (5.8 oz) and adopts the new USB Type-C port tech too.

Android 6 Marshmallow is on board and according to HTC the new adaptation of its Sense skin offers a “Freestyle Layout” showcase which lets you break out of the usual grid format with your icons and widgets. The HTC 10 is up for pre-order for US$699.99 and can commence in a choice of four colors of later this month.

It’s a marked upgrade of the HTC One M9 and donates HTC a fighting accident against the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S7 and the LG G5. That should be adequate information for you to tell whether you are interested in the HTC 10 as your future phone or not, but watch this space for a hands-on and full review on Gizmag.
