HTC has come out with a fresh teaser for its upcoming flagship smartphone which promises ‘new boom’. The Taiwanese company has shared an image on Twitter showing the speaker grille of what appears to be the HTC 10, with the text, “Here comes the new boom. You’ll hear it.” As with earlier teasers, this tweet is accompanied by the hashtag “powerof10.”
Based on the leaked renders we’ve already seen, HTC has removed the front dual speakers from the handset, which suggests that they will be placed on the back panel. Notably, this is the second teaser for the handset, as the first one claimed that the HTC 10 will sport “World First, World Class” front and back cameras.
HTC recently announced an event on April 12, where the company is widely expected to reveal its next flagship, the HTC 10 smartphone. The Taiwanese company has announced that it will have simultaneous events in New York, London, and Taipei.
In other news, the HTC 10 smartphone was recently spotted in an AnTuTu benchmark, where it outscored Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge. GSM Arena received a screenshot showing the benchmark results where HTC 10 topped with a score of 156091. The screenshot showed that the Xiaomi Mi 5 was in the second spot, while Galaxy S7 Edge and iPhone 6s were on the third and fourth respectively.
Based on the leaks and rumours, the HTC 10 smartphone is expected to feature a 5.15-inch Super LCD 5 display with QHD (1440×2560 pixels) resolution; a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor; Adreno 530 GPU; 4GB of RAM; a 12-megapixel rear camera, and a USB Type-C port. The handset is also said to pack a 3000mAh battery, which (if true) will be largest battery in any of HTC’s flagship phones so far. In contrast, the HTC One M9 packed a 2840mAh battery, while the HTC One (M8) featured a 2600mAh battery.
