The HTC One M10 — rumored to be called simply the HTC 10 — has already leaked almost in full at this point. The phone, perhaps unsurprisingly, is going to ship with very similar specs as other early 2016 Android flagships, including of course being built around Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 820 system-on-a-chip. Now, Evleaks has come out to contradict some previous rumors saying that its previously-rumored AMOLED display is actually going to be a Super LCD 5 and that the phone will have a 3,000 mAh battery…
Spec-wise, Evan Blass’ nemesis Onleaks previously claimed that the HTC 10 will go head-to-head with the other current high-end flagships, featuring a a 5.15-inch Quad HD AMOLED display, a Snapdragon 820 processor, 12MP camera (with a dual-LED flash), laser autofocus and home-button similar to that of the HTC One A9 with incorporated fingerprint sensor. He did note at the time that these were “prototype” specs and that things could change before the phone was officially announced. It looks — at least when it comes to the screen technology — they did.
What’s a Super LCD 5? Basically it’s a regular LCD screen that doesn’t have an air gap between the glass itself and the display. Just like pretty much any other flagship phone on the market. Nothing special. And the “5” part just means that this is a minor revision of the Super LCD tech — the HTC One M9 has Super LCD 3.
The other addition to the specs line up that Evan added today is the battery capacity of the phone, coming in at a healthy 3,000 mAh. This would put the phone right on par with the standard Galaxy S7 and just a bit below the Galaxy S7 Edge. This capacity is also just slightly higher than that of the LG G5, which comes in at 2,800 mAh. Notably, however, the LG G5 features a modular design, which allows you to swap out batteries on demand if needed.
In case you missed it, an artist by the name of temp64GTX recently put together some renders of the HTC 10 based on the latest leaks. They seem pretty spot-on, and you should go take a look.
