Like most major smartphone manufacturers, there were high hopes from consumers especially those loyal to HTC, to see the Taiwanese company unleash its flagship at the Mobile World Congress, which was held a couple of weeks ago. However, to the dismay of many, the OEM chose to instead feature a non-flagship handset. Whilst HTC's Desire 530, Desire 825 and Desire 630 may have blown a few viewer's minds, what has gotten most HTC's fans' attention, is the planned launch of the company's soon to be released smartphone, codenamed HTC Perfume and which is currently being referred to as the HTC 10. Sadly, they will have to wait a few more weeks before the official launch set for April 12th. The most recent leak surfaced from My Drivers, a Chinese website which apparently reveals that HTC will launch three different variants of the HTC flagship. Starting with the first variant, it will come equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 652 chipset, backed with 3GB of RAM along with an internal storage of 16GB. The smartphone is expected to have a starting price of around $584. Meanwhile, the second edition will feature the power of a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820, complete with a RAM of 3GB while the internal storage comes with a decent 32GB. The retail price will be almost $768. Finally,the third variant which has a planned retail price of up to $905, will bundle a Snapdragon 820 chipset from Qualcomm, attached with 4GB of RAM as well as a huge 128GB in internal storage. Most of its other features are expected to be similar, with all three models reportedly having 5.5 inches of screen with a QHD Super LCD5 display. In terms of camera, the HTC 10 variants are said to bundle a main camera with 12 megapixel packed with OIS, laser Auto Focus and an LED flash. A 3,000mAh battery capacity will supposedly support the three handsets which will be running on Android 6.0 Marshmallow in cooperation with Sense 8.0. Aside from this report, more images allegedly depicting the HTC 10 have popped up now showing the device in two different colors along with what's under its hood. Its only less than two weeks before we see the official launch event, so its likely that more reports like this will surface, though considering what happened with the LG G5 and Galaxy S7, they could be even easier to access.
