HTC 10 has been in the rumor mill for a while, but now there are less than three weeks left until its launch. Obviously, a delay might still occur, but the probability of it happening is quite low. The next-gen HTC flagship is expected to be unveiled on April 15th, but its maker has been teasing it a lot lately. Next to the leaks and rumors, the bits of information uncovered by these teasers should help everyone to be better prepared for what is coming.

What is worth mentioning are the specs and features revealed by HTC and multiple rumors already, including BoomSound, a 5-inch Super LCD display, a 3000 mAh battery, Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 SoC with Adreno 530 graphics, 4 GB RAM, main camera with just 12 MP. HTC 10 is also expected to feature USB Type-C connectivity.

The latest teaser by HTC India, posted on Twitter, reads the following: "Not all phones are created equal. The fastest and smoothest Android. You’ll feel it." Adding capacitive buttons instead of using the on-screen controls will probably split the company's hardcore fans into two groups, but that remains to be seen. Since there is enough time for HTC to launch more teasers, we could get back to this upcoming handset earlier than expected, so stay tuned.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
