HTC 10 benchmark tells all on HTC’s new flagship Android smartphone

The HTC 10 is set to be the company’s most powerful phone ever. The device is expected to offer cutting-edge hardware across the board, and a recent benchmark appears to back up those rumors.

The latest list of specs comes from a recent performance test on GFXBench, where the device is referred to by its rumored “HTC 10” branding. It packs a 5.1-inch Quad HD display, a Snapdragon 820 processor and runs the latest version of Android 6.0 Marshmallow. The new phone is also equipped with 3.7GB of RAM, which will likely be rounded up to 4GB, and 24GB of storage (probably 32GB total).

The HTC 10’s cameras have been a major source of speculation, and this benchmark may finally clear them up. The phone will apparently pack an 11-megapixel primary camera capable of shooting 4K video, although recent rumors suggest it could actually offer a 12-megapixel lens to match Samsung’s Galaxy S7. In front, the device packs a 4.8-megapixel shooter.

The last bit of information offered up is a list of sensors included in the device. It’s all pretty standard, and the benchmark does seem to confirm that the HTC 10 will offer NFC. That’s not much of a surprise considering the growing importance of mobile payment apps like Android Pay.

HTC still hasn’t confirmed any of the specific hardware it plans to include with its new phone, though it has teased out a few new features. Still, at this point, we probably know most of the HTC 10’s final specs ahead of its official unveiling next month.
