Recently HTC has really been ramping up the teasers associated with the HTC One M10, or what may formally end up being called the HTC 10. Now the teasing has reached a new height, as HTC has finally unveiled the day it plans to launch its 2016 flagship – April 12th. The event kicks off at 8AM EST and, just like the A9 before it, is an online only event. Yes it lists the times for New York, London, and Taipei, but the event itself will be conducted via the web.
In 2014, HTC launched and started selling its One M8 flagship on the same day, though the M9 didn’t come quite as quickly. What about this year’s HTC flagship? It’s hard to say for sure, though though previous rumors suggested the phone might hit retailers on the 16th, less than a week after its announcement.
As for the specs, we don’t know for sure what HTC will deliver just yet, though the rumor mill claims we are looking at a phone powered by a Snapdragon 820 with 4GB RAM, a 5.15-inch QHD display, a 12MP main cam, a 3000 mAh battery, and support for USB Type C. On the design front, the HTC 10 is expected to take more inspiration from the HTC One A9 than the HTC One M9. Whether this is a step up or down depends on who you ask, though many question HTC’s decision to move away from its front-facing boomsound speaker setup, which was billed as one of its biggest selling points.
