It was first reported that HTC would announce its new flagship smartphone at the recent Mobile World Congress in Barcelona but reports emerged later that it would be unveiled at a special event in March. The Taiwanese technology giant is yet to open up on the device, however, its launch seems imminent as several details about the handset have been leaked over the last few weeks.

Popular leakster Evan Blass @evleaks has exposed details of the HTC 10 in a series of tweets. He first claimed HTC's next-generation device is called the HTC 10 and not HTC One M10 or HTC Perfume as reported by a section of the media. He claimed that it will be launched April 9. 

The same source has now tweeted that the upcoming HTC flagship handset will sport a LCD 5 display and powered by a 3,000mAh battery.

Super LCD is superior to LCD. It has less glass glare, better outdoor visibility and lower power consumption. 

It contradicts earlier reports that the HTC 10 will come with a QHD display and a 3,500mAh battery.

According to reports that have surfaced so far, the HTC 10 will sport either a 5.1-inch or 5.2-inch screen with 1,440x2,560 pixels. It is expected to be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor, house an Adreno 530 GPU, run Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow with HTC Sense 8.0 UI, come packed with a 64/128GB internal storage with microSD card slot and a 4GB RAM, and mount a 23MP main camera.

Leakster LlabTooFeR had tweeted that HTC's new device would house a Sony IMX377 12MP main camera and a 5MP UltraPixel front-snapper. HTC's Chief Financial Officer Chialin Chang told Roger Cheng of CNet that the company's upcoming device will "have a very, very compelling camera experience," though he didn't go into the details.
