Original post: So a few years back, the HTC One M7 launched with dual front-facing speakers that nobody had ever put on a smartphone before. They called it “BoomSound,” and users loved the hell out of it. However, recent smartphones created by HTC have kind of left the dual speakers behind, and the terminology “BoomSound” mostly refers to software audio enhancements instead of the twin speakers. So while it’s true the weight behind BoomSound has been diluted somewhat, a new tweet by the company has revealed that the HTC 10 will have it. Whatever it is.
The image that HTC posted seems to indicate that the device will in fact have dual speakers, however. Fans are speculating that the top line of staggered audio elements represents one speaker while the row of five larger, elongated ovals in the bottom represent another set of speakers. Will the HTC 10 crank it to 11? This has yet to be determined, but we can all hope.
The HTC 10 marketing team has been making a lot of claims about their upcoming device. The most wave-making of these is the attestation that the smartphone will have a “World First, World Class” camera on both the front and back of the device. These are high claims to make, especially considering the Samsung Galaxy S7 is already being praised for it’s incredible camera quality. Will HTC’s next device make for worthy competition? We can’t wait to find out.
