The HTC 10 will feature a 3,000-mAh battery and a new generation of the same display technology that powered its predecessors.
HTC has adopted AMOLED technology for the One A9, and there was some hope that the 10 will follow suit, but it looks like that won’t be the case. According to @evleaks, the 10 will feature a Super LCD 5 panel – the leaker didn’t confirm the screen dimensions, but we know from an older report that we should expect a 5.15-inch Quad HD panel, a slight increase over the 5-inch panel of the M9.
Super LCD is a marketing term used by HTC to denote a display where the liquid crystal layer is laminated to the outer glass, which reduces glare, improves clarity, and makes the panel thinner. The One M9 features a Super LCD 3 display, but it’s not clear what improvements Super LCD 5 will bring to the HTC 10.
As for the battery, we’re looking at a small increase in capacity over the 2,840-mAh unit inside the One M9. At 3,000-mAh, the HTC 10’s battery would match the Galaxy S7’s and be slightly larger than the LG G5’s 2,800-mAh unit. The latter does offer the benefit of a user-replaceable battery, an exceedingly rare luxury these days.
To recap, we expect the HTC 10 to feature a 5.15-inch Quad HD display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 with an Adreno 530 GPU, 4GB RAM, a 12MP main cam, and USB Type C.
HTC is already drumming up the excitement for the HTC 10 – a “world first, world class” camera is apparently one of the highlights – so the device can’t be too far down the road.
Are you excited for the HTC 10, from what we’ve heard so far?
