In HTC’s press release for the HTC 10, you probably noticed that AT&T wasn’t listed as one of the carriers expected to sell the phone. That’s because AT&T isn’t selling the HTC 10. Yes, you are reading that correctly – the 2nd biggest wireless carrier in the US isn’t selling HTC’s 2016 flagship phone. (more…)
While we woke up early expecting to watch a livestream unveiling of the all-new HTC 10, HTC had something a bit less exciting in mind. Instead of a normal unveiling event as one might expect from a smartphone company looking to hype their latest and greatest piece of tech, HTC posted all of the 10’s details to its website, as well as a couple of introduction videos on YouTube. That’s it. Nothing fancy. Here’s our new phone, take it or leave it. One could argue that HTC could have used the livestream hype to build publicity around the new phone, but maybe HTC doesn’t care about getting as many people as possible excited about the 10. Oh well.
The HTC 10 features a 5.2″ QHD LCD display, Snapdragon 820 processor, 4GB of RAM, 12MP rear-facing camera with OIS, 5MP front-facing camera, 3,000mAh battery, BoomSound Hi-Fi Edition, USB Type-C, 32GB/64GB storage configurations in addition to microSD support, and runs Android 6.0+ with Sense 8 built on top.

What did HTC put in the HTC 10 to make it a phone worth considering? Quite a bit actually. The phone features all of the specs you hope to see from a 2016 flagship, like a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820, 4GB RAM, microSD slot, 12MP camera with f/1.8 lens and 1.55 micron pixels, the ultimate selfie camera, a metal body, fast fingerprint scanner, 3000mAh battery with quick charging, USB Type-C port, and Android Marshmallow.
See, it’s sort of got it all. Is all of that enough to help HTC return to smartphone glory? Well, the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge still exist, so it isn’t going to be easy. So far, though, HTC seems to be doing the right things with the 10, other than with the price, which weighs in at $699.
More to come! (more…)
We’re on the eve of HTC announcing their next phone, a phone we all expect to be called the HTC 10, at least according to this leaked promo video. We have seen leaked imagery, leaked press renders, leaked specs, and shared the wallpapers from the device within the past month or so, because HTC isn’t exactly the best when it comes to keeping future products a secret. But that isn’t what we want to talk about today. We want to talk about why very few of you seem to care about HTC these days. (more…)
Aukey, one of the leaders and early adopters in Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 3.0 technology, has handed us a few coupon codes for extra discounts on some of their best selling products to share. They are currently handing out additional price drops on their 2-port QC 3.0 car charger, single port wall charger, and 2-port wall charger. With these new discounts, you can get into a QC 3.0 charger for as little as $12.99.
With Quick Charge 3.0, like with QC 2.0, you get excellent charging speeds that dramatically reduce the time you need to stay connected to a charger. Qualcomm’s Quick Charge technology really is one of those game-changing technologies because battery technology still hasn’t caught up to our non-stop, always-moving lives. We’ve talked ad nauseam, but it’s one of those newish techs worth investing in if you haven’t already.
At this time the LG G5 supports QC 3.0, but we are expecting the HTC 10 too as well.
You’ll find links and codes below. (more…)
HTC intends to officially unveil the HTC 10 tomorrow morning, but the Internet has unofficially beaten them to the punch. In a leaked unveiling video posted to YouTube, we get to see the HTC 10 from all angles, including the endless amounts of chamfer that surrounds the entire phone’s backside. To sum it up, this is likely the clip that will be played during tomorrow’s online unveiling for the phone. (more…)
HTC is scheduled to unveil the HTC 10 on April 12. That’s next week, Tuesday to be specific. Before that happens, though, here is yet another leaked photo of the device in White. With this image, we get a great close-up of the Sense 8 user interface we expect to see on the phone when launched, as well as a look at the fingerprint reader on the frontside. From what we can tell, it’s essentially the same reader that is built into the One A9, which is a solid reader. And yes, the capacitive buttons are there, too. (more…)
