When HTC 10 was released, it was hailed as the phone that has come to save the dwindling status of the Taiwanese company in the smartphone market.
Ever since the release of the HTC One M9, HTC has not enjoyed the best of stints as far as sales as concerned. This even prompted the company to take an unusual step and release a mid-range HTC One A9 as if trying to make up for the failed One M9. But still, this did not work as expected and the water had already trickled.
Now, with the HTC 10, a phone that is magnificently designed and packs the best hardware specs you can find in a 2016 flagship, in addition to being the first HTC flagship to ship with a QHD display screen, expectations were high that the company will return to its glory days. However, little did they know that the likes of Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge as well as a series of products from Chinese smartphone makers will come out even stronger.
Apparently, HTC 10 could be set to suffer one of the largest setbacks for the company as T-Mobile, one of the largest carriers in the U.S., is set to stop selling the flagship. This has not been confirmed, though, but it comes from a Reddit user who claims to have wanted to make the shift to the new HTC 10, but instead found that the carrier had, in fact, stopped selling the handset back in July.
But an HTC spokesperson had otherwise to say, pointing out that the reason why there are no more HTC 10 handsets on T-Mobile’s official online store is because the carrier has sold out the entire stock. As a result, anyone who still wants to purchase this flagship with Un-carrier service can get it from the official HTC website. It is also possible to get this phone from the carrier’s offline shops.
T-Mobile has yet to make a comment on the matter, prompting suggestions that the carrier might be planning to ditch selling the handset. This comes as a surprise considering the kind of specs on offer through the handset. The HTC 10 comes with a 5.2-inch Super LCD5 QHD screen with a resolution of 2560 by 1440 pixels. Under the hood, the phone packs a Snapdragon 820 SoC and 4GB RAM. You also get a fingerprint scanner as well as a USB Type-C port that supports Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 3.0 technology.
