  1. Even though HTC isn’t set to unveil its latest flagship smartphone until tomorrow, new images of the device have hit the web. Dutch site GSM Helpdesk posted two photos of the HTC 10, giving us a good look at the front and back of the upcoming smartphone.

    “The image is of a HTC website listing and therefore, should be considered to be fairly accurate, pending any immediate changes,” claims the report. The HTC 10, which is dropping the ‘One’ part of the name that's used in the company’s previous devices, bears a striking resemblance to last year’s HTC One A9 - apart from the addition of oversized beveled edges and the lack of front-facing dual speakers and logo.

    Despite the lack of visible speakers, the company says that the HTC 10 will still feature stereo audio. An earlier teaser for the smartphone suggests that a speaker built into the earpiece at the top will work in conjunction with the bottom speaker to provide the BoomSound setup.

    The website claims that the HTC 10 will be available “worldwide” in mid-May. A pre-order listing for the device shows Verizon and Sprint absent from the list of supported carriers, suggesting there will be no CDMA compatibility, but this could change when the listing is updated, according to Android Headlines.

    The phone's rumored specifications are said to include a Snapdragon 820 SoC, 4GB of RAM, fingerprint scanner, QHD resolution, 32GB or 64GB of storage, microSD slot, a USB type-C connector, and a 5.2-inch display.

    HTC 10’s camera and battery life will reportedly be the device’s standout features. It’s rumored to use a 12-megapixel UltraPixel 2 sensor, laser autofocus and an optically stabilized f/1.8 lens for the rear snapper, along with a 5-megapixel front camera that also features OIS. Additionally, the phone is said to come with a huge 3000mAh battery.

    You can watch HTC's launch event tomorrow at 8 AM Eastern Daylight Time on

    "Is said to come with a huge 3000mAh battery"

    Hmmph, I remember some quote from them about their phones (alluding to the htc 10) and how it was going to have great battery life, because they're obsessed with it. And then they put an average 3000mAh battery in there.

    mmm, huge battery indeed...

    I hear fruitsteps... and a lawsuit. I mean, looks like all the other phones that had similarities to iphones. I think this one is more so. Maybe it was the colors. Maybe its very Samsung. Chicken and the egg...

    They all look alike. Whats the battery life ? Is the fingerprint scanner on the back where it should be ?

    Ah like I care, I got my phone for another 18 months at least anways.

    Wow!!! I'm speechless. It looks like a... like a... smartphone, with a big sensor next to the top earphone. I suppose that's a good thing though.

    Fingerprint scanner on the front, where it should be.
    Phone mounted in the car, it's impossible to reach behind for a fingerprint scanner.

    This looks like it came from SAMPLE (apple and samsung might as well just be the same company). I'm keeping my HTC M8 for awhile. Love it. Such a fast phone. This one doesn't give any reason to upgrade. Plus, where are the awesome speakers that mine has? I bet it won't have the same awesome sound that mine does, but I guess we'll see.....

    Disagree. Shouldn't use phones in cars. End of argument.
    There is no rush to phone someone, ignore them. There is no need to answer a phone in a street.
    Mobiles in general just make people rude.
