[/blockquote]The big Android players, LG and Samsung have already shown off their flagship devices for 2016 with the LG G5 and Galaxy s7 receptively, today HTC has also formally announcing the HTC 10, its flagship smartphone for 2016. After the failure in terms of sales of the M9 last year, HTC thinks that the HTC 10 will revamp its smartphone sales in 2016, but with the Galaxy s7 and s7 Edge on the horizon, they clearly got their work cut of for them. The 10’s design language departs from the M9 and picks its trails from the A9 that they launched at the end of last year. HTC says it spent 12 months designing this phone and integrated feedback from its customers throughout the development process.
