This is the HTC 10, video leaks ahead of launch!

HTC is set to launch its next flagship phone but a leaked video seems to have spoiled HTC's surprise with just a day to go before the launch.

The leaked video shows off the HTC 10 featuring a USB Type-C port, a round camera button unlike existing phones of the One M series and well-defined rounded edges.

Even though the video shows off a good-looking full-metal-body phone with rounded edges that would fit nicely on your palm, this isn't the first time that we have seen the phone. Professional smartphone image leakers on Twitter, namely @OnLeaks and @evleaks, have already offered us some glimpses of the new phone that look exactly like the one which leaked via today's video.

 

As per existing leaks, what we already know about HTC 10 is that it will feature a LCD 5 display instead of an AMOLED one. Unlike an AMOLED display, an LCD display has a single backlight as the source of illumination instead of individual light-emitting components. EV Leaks also predicted a 5.1-inch QHD display which will offer a resolution of 2560x1440 pixels.

The Super LCD panel in HTC 10 will remove the air gap between the display element and the outer glass, which makes the display look as bright as a Super AMOLED one. Super LCD will also consume a lot less power than standard LCD ones, apart from offering better viewing angles and faster refresh rate.

 

On the inside, HTC 10 will feature a Snapdragon 820 processor which will work with 4GB of RAM to offer a performance very similar to the latest premium smartphones. An Adreno 530 GPU will also offer 40 per cent improvement to graphics, computing and power usage compared to the existing Adreno 430 GPU in the Snapdragon 810 chip. The new phone will also field a 3,000 mAh battery compared to a 2,800 mAh one in HTC One M9.

Not surprisingly, HTC 10 scored a remarkable 109,936 on AnTuTu benchmark testing compared to 103,692 scored by Galaxy S7, 81,087 scored by Samsung's Galaxy S6 Edge and 79,965 scored by HTC's very own One M9.

 

As per LlabTooFeR, a serial tipster of HTC phones on Twitter, HTC 10 may sport three internal memory options of 16GB, 32GB and 64GB. However, there's no confirmation on the presence of a microSD slot in the phone as yet.

While several rumours have predicted that HTC will revert to its UltraPixel technology with the 10, what we know so far is that the phone may feature a 12MP rear camera Sony IMX377 sensor which is also present in Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P, laser autofocus as well as optical image stabilization. The 5MP front cam will feature Samsung s5k4e6 sensor as well as autofocus capability.

HTC will officially launch the new flagship in an event at 1PM GMT tomorrow which you will be able to stream live on your smartphone or PC. Once the phone is unveiled, we will be back with all the details you need along with comparison charts and a juicy hands-on review.
