The most awaited flagship device from HTC in One M series, the HTC 10 has gone official, with some awesome specs and a familiar design which we seen in HTC One M9 and A9. Unlike its predecessors, the HTC 10 carries the name without One and M.It is just simply called as 10, yes the HTC 10. Most of the specifications are similar to the leaked and rumored details. But previously rumored entry-level variant for the device is not there. The smartphone HTC 10 features the specs what you have seen in most of the flagship devices launched in 2016.
The HTC 10 features a 5.2 inch qHD Super LCD display, as leaked earlier. HTC says that it has 30% more color than their previous devices. For the better capacitance for the display, HTC enhaced hardware and software acceleration with the display. As the last leak suggested, the display is protected by a Gorilla Glass with curved edges, which gives more stylish look to the device. It is powered with the Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 820 SoC, carries a 4GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage space which is expandable via SD Card. It is powered up with a battery pack juiced with 3,000mAh power and a USB Type-C port locates at the bottom of device. The QucikCharge 3.0 feature can charge up your device faster more than you think about a smartphone battery.
HTC made some changes in Camera modules, than they did usually. They gave priority to Sensor, rather than Mega Pixels. A 12 Mega Pixel Ultra Pixel sensor is mounted on the rear panel of the device, inside a circular covering, with dual LED Flash and a Laser Auto Focus setup. The front facing camera for the device carries 5MP sensor with OIS and f/1.8 Aperture wide angle.
HTC uses Boom Sound speakers for enhancing the audio experience at high-resolution, with 24-bit sound quality. The headphone audio output of twice than other smartphones.
The HTC 10 is made with the Metal Unibody design, with heavily occupied metal frame on rear panel, with less plastics used. The champhered edges on rear panel gives a powerful look to the device. The front panel of the device has been chosen from the previously released HTC One A9 smartphone, sporting a fingerprint scanner cum Home bottom at the middle of bottom part of display. Instead of the on-screen navigational keys, HTC embedded the navigational keys out of the display at the either sides of the Home button.
HTC worked with Google to make a change in experiencing the UI, running Android 6.0 Marshmallow. HTC uses Google’s Apps as default in HTC 10 and the Sense UI 8.0 is similar to that of Nexus devices’.

The unlocked device is available to pre-order at $699, and will be available from Verizon, Sprint and T-Mobile (sorry AT&T subscribers-but an unlocked version was spotted on a tweet) in US.
