HTC 10 launch raises the stakes
Apple and Samsung continue to dominate the high end smartphone market but that is not to say that there isn’t other worthy alternatives as the HTC 10 launch raises the stakes.
Since the release of the original HTC One back in 2013 the company hasn’t enjoyed as much success with the handsets replacements, but now things are looking rosier with the official launch of the HTC 10.
The stylish looking handset comes with a list of impressive specifications that include a 5.2-inch Super LCD display with a QHD resolution providing 561ppi, which is powered by a 2.2GHz 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor paired with 4GB of RAM.
It will come with either 32GB or 64GB of internal storage expandable by up to 2TB via microSDXC card. Camera wise we have a 12MP UltraPixel on the rear paired with a 5MP UltraPixel around the front, and both shooters are equipped with Optical Image Stabilization so the days of shaky selfies will be over.
Other features include a fingerprint scanner, dual BoomSound speakers, 3,000mAh battery with Quick Charge 3.0, and support for Apple’s AirPlay streaming. The handset will start shipping next month with Android 6.0 Marshmallow straight out of the box along with a high-end pair of headphones.
While all major carriers in the UK at least will stock the HTC 10, you can pre-order the smartphone now direct from HTC for £569 SIM free, and is available in Glacier Silver, Carbon Grey, and Topaz Gold colour options. Check out the official video below.
