New HTC 10 is the First Android Smartphone With Native AirPlay Support

Posted April 12, 2016 at 5:26pm by iClarified
HTC has unveiled its new flagship smartphone the HTC 10. Notably, it is the first Android smartphone to feature native AirPlay support. The company lists support for Chromecast, DLNA, Miracast, and AirPlay under its Connectivity specifications.

This newest addition to the HTC phone family combines a world–class camera with gold–standard audio, bold new metal unibody design and unparalleled performance.

Here's some launch details about the new HTC 10.

Designed to Perfection
Inspired by light and sculpted to perfection, the HTC 10 employs a new approach to design where bold contours are carved out of solid metal. Capturing the light beautifully, the chamfered edges boast a slimmer, more slender look with its full–glass front merging seamlessly into the metal body.

Passionate about the small details, it’s not just the materials that come under scrutiny when we create a new handset. With the HTC 10, our design teams worked tirelessly to build a phone where even the power button has been beautifully crafted, where the speakers deliver a sleeker look and better sound quality and where the fingerprint sensor recognizes your finger from almost any angle.

It is also important that we got the build absolutely right. Mercilessly engineered to handle everyday knocks, bumps and scratches, the HTC 10 was subjected to over 168 hours of extreme temperature tests, ranging from a freezing –20°C to a scorching 60°C; and over 10,000 drop, bend, scratch and corrosion tests.

World–class camera!
With HTC 10 we’ve delivered what we believe to be the best smartphone camera available on the market today. With the world’s first optically stabilized, larger aperture ƒ/1.8 lenses on both the front and rear cameras, new larger sensors, 12 million of our new generation UltraPixels (1.55µm per pixel), faster laser autofocus powering the main camera and a wide angle lens and screen flash on the front UltraSelfie camera, this smartphone delivers brilliantly sharp, low light and high–resolution photos whether behind or in front of the lens.

With the camera designed to launch in as little as 0.6 seconds, and a 2nd generation laser autofocus that gives you focused shots faster, it’s quick enough to even work in burst mode. All the settings are also conveniently located at your fingertips with Pro Mode still offering advanced options for more experienced photographers, including RAW format functionality.

Boasting a DxOMark score of 88*, this is one of the highest camera quality scores of any smartphone to date and is the result of tens of thousands of hours spent fine tuning each element to deliver world–class photos and videos.

Best in sight, best in sound
But it’s not just the imaging that puts this smartphone at the top of its game — the HTC 10 combines vivid 4K video with the world’s first stereo, 24–bit, Hi–Res audio recording — capturing 256 times more detail than standard recordings, across twice the frequency range and enabling you to bring to life your recorded content as if you were actually there in person.

Built for audiophiles, the HTC 10 is certified for Hi–Res audio and has been designed to make music sound the way that the artist intended. A headphone amp that delivers two times the power of a conventional headphone amp, the ability to upscale from 16–bit to 24–bit audio and high performance digital to analogue conversion combine beautifully to produce ten times lower distortion than other devices on the market, delivering an all round audio performance that cannot be beaten.

Everyone hears things differently, which is why the HTC 10’s all–new Personal Audio Profile system enhances your audio experience even further. By creating a unique profile that is tuned to your individual hearing, it dynamically adjusts specific sound frequencies to each ear, allowing you to hear music the way that the artist intended. Re–engineered HTC BoomSound Hi–Fi edition speakers feature the same separated tweeter and woofer design as leading acoustic systems and combine with a dedicated amplifier on each speaker, adding to the experience and delivering sound clarity unprecedented on a smartphone.

Performance at its Best
Whilst the HTC 10 nails it on the hardware, we have also delivered what we believe to be best–in–class software by focusing on getting the fundamentals right. With apps that launch twice as fast and that perform to the highest standard and a next generation quad HD display that is 30% more colourful, creating a true cinematic feel, and that is 50% more responsive to touch than its predecessor, even the smallest and fastest of finger movements track perfectly.

This attention to detail doesn’t stop there! With security high on people’s agendas, we have created a fingerprint scanner, which unlocks in a lightening fast 0.2 seconds and which has been algorithmically designed to recognise you faster and more accurately over time.

Engineered from the inside out to last longer, the HTC 10 boasts the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon processor with enhanced 4G LTE. Each device also comes with Boost+ which is designed to make your phone faster, to consume less power and to provide effective security and applications management features. This includes smart boost, which automatically optimizes your memory; a game battery booster, which uses less battery during gameplay; and a new PowerBotics system, which auto detects and shuts down apps that use excessive power – improving battery life by 30% and delivering up to two days charge.

Not only does Boost+ optimize performance, making it easier to launch apps, but its App Lock function also adds a new layer of security by enabling you to lock any app you choose, whilst App Manager provides an instant fix for when an app isn’t behaving.

The HTC 10 also includes the latest in–box quick charge 3.0 Rapid Charger with improved thermal management that can charge the battery up to 50% in just 30 minutes – ideal for people who find their phone running low on juice before the end of the working day.

Controlled by You!
By reducing the number of duplicative and pre–loaded apps and bloatware and integrating the best of both HTC and Google, we have created a more streamlined phone that enables you to decide what you want on your handset.

With HTC’s specially created new Freestyle Layout, you no longer have an on–screen grid that dictates the layout. Instead you can get creative by dragging icons, stickers and widgets anywhere you like. Layer them, group them, link stickers to apps or get rid of screen icons altogether, the choice is yours.

The latest version of HTC Themes also provides you with access to thousands of professional looking themes that each come with their own icons, backgrounds and sounds so you can customize your phone based on your own personal style.

Accessories and availability
To further streamline your experience, the HTC 10 offers an all–new Ice View case with a semi–transparent and highly versatile single front–cover case. So when that next call or message comes in, when you need to skip a track or snap that perfect shot, you can do it without opening your smartphone’s case. It’s simplicity without sacrificing protection.

The HTC 10 will come in two variants with different Qualcomm Snapdragon processors to cater for different market needs. They will both offer the same design, audio, camera and display, with a similar software experience and battery life. In the U.S., the HTC 10 will come with the Snapdragon 820 processor.

Pre-orders for HTC 10 begin today with shipping in early May. The Unlocked edition from HTC.com comes in Glacier Silver and Carbon Gray, and costs $699. It also comes with UH OH Protection, which includes one replacement at no charge within the first 12 months of ownership for a cracked screen or water damage.

Specs kills iPhones but Android usability is still poor.

More like iPhone Jetson, plus the specs are faster because once again, another phone released months later. It's cat and mouse all over again.

HTC would be my choice if I went with Android...the sound is really good. Love my jailbroken iPhone though;-)
NO THANKS - April 12, 2016 at 8:46pm
NO THANKS!!! I like iphone better!!!
gamerscul9870 - April 13, 2016 at 12:16am
Agree, but I don't want to get cocky about it, but this is just saying what HTC 10 is, not an offer to you.

It looks like something that would've came out a few years ago
Stevenk - April 13, 2016 at 2:49pm
Isn't the iPhone looking the same for the last 6 years? LOL. Or wait, did you miss it being a blind iSheep ? :)
gamerscul9870 - April 13, 2016 at 3:24pm
Blind? Coming from someone who doesn't go into detail about the style. Allow me: iPhone 1: super thick, volume buttons all together with plastic finish and a back with a black bottom with tiny speaker and mic with 30-pin charger. iPhone 2 (3G): about the same with a bit less thickness. iPhone 3GS: same. iPhone 4: introduced Retina display and glass finish with flat sides and round volume buttons with some metal finish iPhone 4s: same but with Siri. iPhone 5: a thinner yet taller version of the 4 but with a fully metal finish and new lightning connector with bigger mic and speaker and rearranged antenna bands from the iPhone 4(s) and glass on top and on bottom (barely like the black bottom from iPhone 1), 5s: home button becomes touch I.D., tru tone flash next to the camera, and darker than the iPhine 5 on the back. 6: introduced laminated display with volume buttons that aren't attached to eachother this time and are more organized than the one on older models like aligned perfectly like they're not tilted, feel the click when pressed compared to the older models with tiny pressing on those buttons, and redone speaker and mic along with the flash and antenna lines. 6s: introduced Retina Flash, extended antenna range, more durable body to resist bending, 4K camera. To summarize: unless an iPhine is an s model of its predecessor, they aren't the same and since the iPhone 4, iPhone has continued to change and the modern ones don't look like the first few ones.
