HTC 10: Everything you need to know

HTC has just taken the wraps off their latest flagship, the HTC 10.

The HTC 10 comes with a number of improvements last year’s HTC One M9.  On the front, you’ll find  a 5.2-inch Quad HD LCD display (which is 2560 x 1440 pixels) and it is protected by a sheet of Corning Gorilla Glass. That gives it a pixel density of 564 ppi.

The 10 is being powered by a Snapdragon 820 processor with 4GB of RAM.


Also new to the HTC 10 is a fingerprint sensor. It’s on the front of the device, similar to how it was on the HTC One A9.


For battery, it is 3,000 mAh and the 10 also comes with a USB Type C port with support for Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0. HTC is saying that their flagship can last up to two days on a single charge with the help of a new ‘PowerBotics’ system that enhances the phone’s hardware and software to be more efficient.

HTC has put the world’s first dual OIS cameras inside the 10. The front-facing camera is 5-megapixels and has a 86 degree wide-angle lens. While the rear-facing camera has a 12-megapixels and has HTC’s UltraPixel 2 technology built-in to give it a 1.55µm pixel size).

You’ll also find dual-tone LED flash and the ability to take 4K video. The 10 can also take 720p slow motion video at 120fps.

Even though the HTC 10 doesn’t have HTC’s infamous stereo BoomSound speakers on the front, you’ll still find a front-facing top speaker and a downward firing speaker at the bottom of the phone.

HTC also says that the 10’s headphone jack has its own dedicated amp and can deliver twice the power of a standard headphone amp with ten times less distortion.

The design of the HTC 10 is the same metal unibody that HTC has used on their past devices. HTC also promises better vibration feedback and more of a premium feel to the power and volume buttons on the 10.


For software, it will be running Android 6.0 with HTC Sense. HTC is promising that their new version of Sense is lighter, leaner and faster than previous versions.


The HTC 10 also comes with fewer preloaded apps and HTC is introducing a new optional layout called Freestyle which will give users flexibility and customization options on their homescreens.


The HTC 10 will be available in two storage capacities, 32GB and 64GB and has a microSD card slot for up to 2TB more.


The HTC 10 will be available in a few colour options, silver, gold and grey. In North America, the HTC 10 will have a black front while the rest of the world has a white front HTC 10.

In terms of pricing and availability, the HTC 10 will be available in Canada, exclusively on Bell in Glacier Silver. The 10 will ship to customers in early May and Bell hasn’t said what the two-year contract price will be for the HTC 10. But you can expect it to be about $399-499 CAD on-contract.


Part of the reason that HTC chose to go with only one carrier (Bell) in Canada is that they support LTE-A which can provide fast data speeds to HTC 10 users.

In the US, HTC will be selling the HTC 10 on T-Mobile and unlocked through their site (the unlocked version is also compatible with AT&T).
If you aren’t on Bell or just want to buy the HTC 10 unlocked, you’ll be able to buy it from HTC’s website for $999 CAD in Glacier Silver or Carbon Grey.
