It seems htc is not purchasing the soc rather collecting the old scraps thrown unused. A beautifully designed phone with crap hardware.
This phone is almost exactly the same as the Desire 816, released 2.5 years ago. Only actual advantage is storage and RAM. Why not use Snapdragon 425 or 435 or better????? This phone is not worth buying at all. It would have been great back in 2014.
HTC is now behaving like drunk....3GB Ram with SD400 and With 32bit A7 chipset....HTC is proving that company will never grow up...
Releasing High end Phone with
4Ultra pixl camera
or with midrange chipset
or with low market OS (windows)
or with ugly specification...........close your company or sell it and go home and relax HTC
Coming soon cortex A7?
HTC should be banned from this site for trolling
No matter how cheap a phone is, you don't buy cortex A7
I am a HTC fan and I own a One E9+.
But this phone is garbage, for it's price I'd rather get a Asus ZenFone 3.
Even ZenFone 3 laser with it's S430 SOC is still a better buy at a lower price, in a metal build, with a bigger battery, and more RAM.
What is wrong with you HTC!?
A S435 SOC with at least OIS and IMX258 would make it at least worthy of considering, after at least a 30% discount. But at the current specs, unless they sell it below USD$100, if not, it's doom.
DaXiong, 23 Aug 2016SD650/SD652 would make the phone "too good" and people would buy it instead of the HTC 10. So... moreThey could have put the Snapdragon 430.
Whatever you say, putting a S400 in a 2016 device is very stupid. This phone is DOA.
Dev, 20 Aug 2016HTC should go for a upper mid range processor with A72 cores, SD650/SD652 likes.SD650/SD652 would make the phone "too good" and people would buy it instead of the HTC 10. So they will for sure cripple it in a number of ways...

AKW, 17 Aug 2016i waited for it's price! beautiful design ... what about cpu? i care battery more ... It is a rumoured device. None of these specs are actually confirmed. This phone could either have 4 GB of RAM, a 3000 mAh battery and a FHD display or an HD with 2 GB of RAM and a SnapDragon 400
