HTC 10 Release Date Confirmed; Device To Be Shipped This Week

The HTC 10 release date is on May 13. Carriers Sprint and Verizon have confirmed that they are offering the device.

Tech Times reported that Sprint has announced the HTC 10 release date to come next week. The device will be available on this carrier without initial payment; however, customers will be paying for $26 per month for 24 months. It will also run on the network's faster LTE Plus .

The publication noted that the HTC 10 release date could not come soon enough. With the positive reviews given by the tech community, fans are very excited to get their hands on the upcoming smartphone.

The HTC 10 will feature a metal design. It has a 5.2-inch Quad HD Super LCD 5 screen with a resolution of 2,560 x 1,440. Its pixel density is 565 pixels per inch (ppi).

It has the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor and 4 GB of RAM found in the LG G5, Samsung Galaxy S7, and S7 edge. The HTC 10 will run on Android 6.0 Marshmallow and HTC Sense 8.0.

The device has 32 GB of internal storage which can be expanded. HTC has promised "world class" cameras for both rear and front, with 12 megapixels and 5 megapixels, respectively.

According to Droid Life, preorders for the HTC 10 have already started last Apr. 29 with Verizon. The company is the first wireless carrier to offer the handset, with shipping options coming on May 5.

GSM Arena added that the HTC 10 release date will come a bit early for those who pre-ordered the unlocked version straight from the Taiwan-based company itself. HTC's Senior Global Online Communications Manager Jeff Gordon took to Twitter to reply to a question about the device's shipment date.

"Unlocked HTC 10 begins shipping in the US next week," Gordon said in a tweet last week. T-Mobile has not confirmed when it will launch the device while AT&T will not be selling the phone.
