Hands-on with the HTC 10

We take a look at the new device which was launched today

HTC today unveiled their new flagship device today; HTC 10. This smartphone will rival the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S7, iPhone 6S and Huawei P9. Like most devices these days, rumours were rife about the spec and it seems they were on the money for the most part. 

The company claims the device has a "bold new concept in design", however the HTC 10 looks quite similar to previous HTC flagship phones. Out of the box, it feels quite heavy but the curved, solid metal body sits very comfortably in the hand. 

 

Internally there's a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 Quad Core 64-bit 2.2Ghz processor and it boasts an impressive 4GB of RAM. The power of the device is definitely noticeable from the first power-on. 

Customers can choose from either a 32GB or 64GB version of the device, both can be expanded with a Micro SD card, up to 2TB - which, obviously, is plenty!

There's a 12MP HTC UltraPixel camera on the back with laser autofocus and optical image stabilisation. It can also shoot 4K video with Hi-Res audio. There's a 5MP camera on the front of the device for those all-important selfies. 

The HTC 10 comes loaded with a 3,000mAh battery, which is needed to run the high-powered device. 

A full review will be posted online on Thursday evening.
