The Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 is expected to be just as fast or even faster than the Exynos 8890 according to AnTuTu 10 leaks.

HTC is teasing its upcoming flagship yet again. This time, the manufacturer is suggesting that the One M9 successor will carry powerful stereo speakers without showing any actual images or renders of the device. Based on leaked renders, however, HTC could be incorporating the dual speakers directly above and below the display similar to the Nvidia tablet. In any case, the high quality of the internal speakers isn't surprising since the HTC One series has traditionally carried powerful speakers for a smartphone.

Aside from its sound quality, a more juicy rumor has been making the rounds regarding the actual raw performance of the smartphone. An alleged AnTuTu 10 benchmark score for the HTC 10 puts it at 156091 points or 20000 points ahead of the Galaxy S7 and its Exynos 8890 SoC. The HTC model is expected to have a Snapdragon 820 SoC and be slightly faster than the similarly equipped LG G5 if these snapshots are proven to be true.

Current rumors suggest that the HTC 10 will have a 5.1-inch Super LCD 5 QHD display, 4 GB RAM, and 3000 mAh battery and run Android 6.0 Marshmallow with the updated Sense 8.0 UI. An official worldwide reveal is expected this coming April 12 with a launch date soon after.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
