Rumor: HTC 10 to come with Super LCD5 display, 3,000 mAh battery

Rumor: HTC 10 to come with Super LCD5 display, 3,000 mAh battery

We’re starting off the week with two new details regarding the HTC 10’s specifications. Evan Blass shared on Twitter that the HTC 10 will sport a Super LCD 5 display and a 3,000 mAh battery. Based on previous HTC 10 rumors, we know that the display on the phone will be 5.2-inched with a WQHD (2560 x 1440) resolution. Since the HTC One A9 was equipped with an AMOLED display panel, it’s been assumed that the HTC 10 would as well. HTC has used Super LCD 3 displays on its flagship phones since the original HTC One, but the HTC 10 would be the first device in HTC’s lineup to use a Super LCD5 display.

For now, there isn’t much information regarding the Super LCD5 specification and how it compares to current generation AMOLED panels or the older Super LCD3 panels that HTC has used in the past.

On the battery front, the 3,000 mAh in the HTC 10 could be 5.6% larger than the one used in the HTC One M9. While that’s not a huge bump in side, it matches what Samsung is using inside the Galaxy S7. Since the two phones will be using the same processor and their displays are roughly the same size (the Galaxy S7’s display is 5.1-inches) and resolution, battery life between the two devices should be comparable.

    To build on further about the battery life statements. The One M8 when compared to the Samsung Galaxy S5 had the same and if not better battery life even though it had a smaller battery pack, so I think HTC will be able to even better optimise it to have better battery life than the S7.

    Also, the One A9 with its petite 2,150 mAh battery proved HTC have learnt a thing or two about creating battery efficient software
