HTC 10 gets FCC approval, is now officially a living phone
The HTC 10. Surely you’ve heard of it and seen it by now, but until the Federal Communications Commission (or FCC) approves it, the phone is still just a theoretical device. Now, however, the HTC 10 has gotten the approval HTC has sought for it, making the device an official, living smartphone that can be purchased by consumers in the near future.
An image leaked from the source shows that, when you now visit the “about phone” settings on the HTC 10, you can see that it has received FCC ID number NM82PS6200 for a European variant of HTC’s next big thing. In addition to the PS6200 model, there’s also an FCC ID for another model with number PS6500. The PS6200 seems to be the European model, with the PS6500 being the US model.
The HTC will come with the quad-core, Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor, 4GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow, a 12MP back camera, 5MP front camera, 5.15-inch display with a Quad HD screen resolution, fingerprint sensor, and so on — these are the typical high-end expectations for rival flagships these days. HTC has said it’s worked day and night to bring the best cameras it can give a device, but Samsung and LG have both done the same. HTC fans may find these things alone worth upgrading to (not to mention the HTC 10’s Antutu benchmark scoring), but HTC will have to convince more than diehards in order to bring its upcoming flagship to the top of the Android line and pull the company out of its current financial bottom.
HTC will announce the HTC 10 on April 12th, we’re told, despite the initially rumored April 19th release date for the device. The date itself could change, but HTC intends to launch the device in London (Europe), New York (US), and Taipei (Taiwan), its home city. The European and US HTC 10 variants have been seen here, but there could be more variants on the way. We’re just waiting until HTC makes them official.
