HTC wasn’t “threatening” in vain that it would offer the best-ever phone for photos and videos, as we found out today at the release of HTC10. The phone delivers one of the best camera technologies on the market and a sound system that will make running errands a lot more fun and musical #mobilemagic
As many noticed, HTC seems to have returned to the One origins with this phone, a thing many of us wanted badly. The back looks a lot like the One A9, and so do the capacitive keys where this time, HTC added the third button. Otherwise, the company switched to an all-metal body, a new chamfered contour and dual-textured finish.
It’s definitely a phone that turns heads but this could happen even more thanks to the camera technology. HTC10 is equipped with a 12 Ultrapixel camera, f/1.8 aperture, faster auto-focus and features the “first dual OIS for pro level photos front and back”! That’s something. Add to that HTC’s DxOMark ratings – 88* and you can expect the same image quality as Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge boasts.
It shoots in 12-bit RAW and 4K 2160p for videos and Hi-Res audio. The front camera has a 5MP sensor and f/1.8 aperture.
The BoomSound audio system works as a two-way spealer – a tweeter for high frequencies and a woofer for low ones.
As far as other specs go, count on:
- 5.2″ screen with QHD resolution (1,440 x 2,560px)
- Super LCD 5 display with a curved edge Gorilla Glass
- Android 6.0 Marshmallow
- Snapdragon 820 chipset
- 4GB of RAM
- microSD slot
- 3,000mAh battery with Quick Charge 3.0.
For $700, you can pre-order the 32GB HTC10 version in dark or light theme.
