HTC is all set to announce its flagship devices for 2016 during an event on April 12. HTC teased the announcement with this Facebook post and later followed it up with a YouTube video about why it is obsessed about the return of the boom sound.
Design wise, the new flagship could adopt the elements of HTC A9, rather than the M9. Although it suggests the removal of Boom speakers, like it did on the A9. It was Evan Blass who is notorious for his leaks who first pointed out that the HTC 10 will have a similar look-and-feel to that of HTC A9. Which means that the speaker grill on the bottom panel of the device could go away.
Several images leaked by @Onleaks also point to a similar design, where the front speaker has shifted from the front panel below the screen and moved below, besides the USB-C type charger.
According to multiple leaks and rumours the Taiwanese tech firm would be launching not one but three variants of HTC 10 – it is rumoured that HTC could altogether drop the M from the naming series. The 5.1-inch flagship is expected to come with a QHD Amoled display or QHD Super LCD 5 display. The device will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 chipset with 4GB RAM, 3000mAh batter. It is also rumoured that HTC could come out with three different screen sizes of 5.5, 5.1 and 4.7-inch display.
