The HTC 10 has been featured in numerous leaks over the last few months, but it seems the company wanted to keep one feature under wraps, which unfortunately was revealed by its partner on Twitter. Although the tweet has now been removed, we now know that the 10 might be the first smartphone with a front-facing camera featuring optical image stabilization (OIS).
The upcoming flagship smartphone from HTC seems to be used by well-known photographer Kisha Bari, who tweeted about the device's OIS-powered selfie camera. The tweet was later removed but can still be found in Google's web cache.
There isn't much left for the Taiwanese smartphone maker to reveal about the HTC 10, as we have already seen the smartphone in leaked photos and know about its alleged hardware specifications as well. The leaked specs are as follows:
- 5.15-inch Quad HD Super LCD 5 display
- Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 2.2 GHz processor with Adreno 530 GPU
- 4 GB RAM
- Multiple storage options
- 12-megapixel rear camera
- 3000 mAh battery
- USB Type-C connector for charging and data transfer
Looking at the leaked information, the device seems comparable to the recently launched flagships from LG and Samsung, and it remains to be seen whether the company still has something up its sleeve that can set the phone apart. HTC's launch event kicks off at 1 PM GMT on April 12 and we will keep you updated with the details.
