People keep referring to the dual front facing speakers as "boom sound". The speakers are not boom sound. They are 2 completely different things.
Boom sound is part of the software created by HTC. It was used for better audio quality. Deeper bass. HTC dropped a couple years ago and replaced it with Dolbi Audio software instead. Boom sound has been gone for a while now.
The dual front facing speakers, which are hardware not software, were first introduced into HTC through the M series of phones. They were also used in the J or Butterfly series and still are.
The M series has now ended. And HTC is moving on. Perhaps in this new 10 phone, they will introduce new audio enhancements or different audio hardware. Right now, we don't know for sure. We just need to wait and see.
But please STOP calling front facing speakers "boom sound" because they aren't.
HTC will always preside over the other brands of smartphones. They were the first to challenge iPhone and come up with something new and unheard of. HTC DREAM (G1) 2008. so Samsung, LG, and Sony can't say that anyone is copying their shit, because we know who the real OG is.
As far as the HTC 10, I like my front facing speakers on my M9 enough to where I'd consider not upgrading to the 10 if they really didn't have them, but D day will come when the phone is actually released.
I don't realize how these are low specs, it is almost identical to the galaxy s7 and sense ui is way better than touch wiz. The only thing i am disappointed about is the lack of boom sound.
People, don't jump to conclusions saying HTC 10 doesn't have boomsound just because it doesn't have two front facing stereo speakers. If you look closely you can see the first speaker just above the screen and the second one is at the bottom next to the charging port. So it still has two speakers and boomsound, they are just placed and look differently.
