On Tuesday, HTC tweeted a cryptic message about its upcoming smartphone, believed to be called the HTC 10.
"World First, World Class, Front and Back. You'll see. #powerof10," tweeted HTC with an image of two camera lenses with silver trim. Based on the image, the upcoming smartphone may feature a dual camera setup, like the HTC One M8, though the M8's Duo Camera only used one of the lenses to take pictures while the other detected the scene's depth. In the tweeted photo, both camera lenses are the same size which could mean the dual camera setup on the upcoming smartphone could use both lenses to take pictures, potentially shooting ultra-wide, hi-res photos. Taking the caption text into account, the HTC 10 may feature a dual camera setup on both the front and back of the device, offering wide-angle selfies. TechRadar's Cameron Faulkner claims the front-and-back setup could even be used to record 360-degree footage using the four wide-angle lenses on the device. HTC may also mean that it will use the same camera on the front and back of the device, likely a 12 megapixel camera.
HTC did not share any other details on the upcoming device, nor has it confirmed any of the speculation. In fact, nothing about the HTC 10 is official at this point, including the same HTC 10. Other rumors claim that the upcoming HTC flagship will feature a 5.15-inch QHD (2,560 x 1,440 pixel) display, a Snapdragon 820 processor, an Adreno 530 graphics chip, at least one 12 megapixel camera, 4GB of RAM, and a USB Type-C port. HTC is believed to be planning to launch the HTC 10 on April 19, though this has yet to be confirmed.
