Back in late January, a leak claimed to reveal many of the specs of the HTC 10, HTC’s next flagship Android phone. It included details like a 5.1-inch 2560x1440 display, Snapdragon 820, 4GB of RAM, and a lack of front-facing speakers. There were a few pieces missing from that list, too, but today another leak has filled in some of those holes.
According to Evan Blass, source of the previous HTC 10 leak, HTC’s next big phone will feature a Super LCD 5 display. It’d previously been suggested that the HTC 10’s screen could be AMOLED, but now it looks like that won’t be the case.
The HTC 10 is also expected to include a 3000mAh battery. To compare, the HTC One M9 has a 2840mAh battery that powers a 5-inch 1920x1080 display.

HTC has used Super LCD screens in past flagship models like the One M8 and One M9, but they used an AMOLED panel on the more recent One A9. HTC may be sticking to Super LCD for its high-end models, but the screens on the M8 and M9 were Super LCD 3, while today’s rumor suggests that the HTC 10’s panel will be both an updated Super LCD type and have a higher resolution than the panels found on the M8 and M9.
HTC hasn’t yet announced any kind of event that might be for the HTC 10’s debut. The rumor mill has suggested that the phone will make its debut in mid-April, so it’s possible that we’ll get to see HTC’s next Android flagship in about a month.
