If you had any doubts over what HTC’s new flagship might look like, it’s time to fold them up like a paper airplane and throw them out the window. A promotional video for the new “10” smartphone has leaked online, revealing what it looks like from almost every conceivable angle. Of course, there’s always the possibility that this is a fake, although based on previous leaks we’re pretty confident that it’s legitimate. It shows the phone in three colors — gold, silver and dark grey — with chamfered edges and a USB Type-C port on the bottom. On the back, there’s an ever so slightly protruding camera lens, the HTC logo and two antenna lines.
The back of the device is in keeping with the stylish One (M7), One M8 and One M9. The front is a different story, however, due to the absence of HTC’s trademark dual speaker grills. Instead, there’s a physical button near the bottom, which possibly serves as a home shortcut and a fingerprint scanner. It’s reminiscent of the One A9, a successor to the One M9 which our own Chris Velazco criticized for sporting a “new but derivative look.”
Under the hood, the phone is rumored to run a Snapdragon 820 processor, 4GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. It’s all speculation for now — while most of the surprises appear to have been leaked, there’s only one way to know if they’re accurate. HTC will be making its announcement at 8am ET/1pm BST tomorrow, so check back here for the full rundown.
