HTC 10 to feature a Super LCD display, not AMOLED

htc 10 leak

Despite leaks and previous reports, it seems that the HTC 10 will sport a Super LCD screen rather than an AMOLED one.

The news comes from famous leaker/tipster Evan Blass who posted on Twitter. For users looking to upgrade their current smartphone to the upcoming HTC 10, this may come at a bit of a disappoint. However, Super LCD panels do offer some benefits over traditional LCD panels. Super LCD panels reduce battery consumption and have a better visibility. The Super LCD display is expected to contain 1440 x 2560 pixels, which is good for a QHD resolution.

The display type isn’t the only bit of information in the post. We also received some details regarding the battery capacity. The HTC 10 will reportedly house a 3,000mAh battery, which I couldn’t imagine being replaceable. As a recap, other likely specs include the Snapdragon 820 processor, 3GB of 4GB of RAM, and an all-new camera that HTC says is “world-class.” It should come in several colors and look something like the images in the gallery down below. The device is scheduled to launch at an event on April the 19th.

    Very disappointed about missing AMOLED display.

      I wouldn’t be. AMOLED is known to have screen burn in, a problem that affected CRT TVs years, it’s also a Samsung technology, they developed it. HTC would need to license it out, and I can’t imagine it being worth it.

        HTC One A9 have AMOLED which looks awesome and that is reason I wanted AMOLED so badly on HTC 10 cuz things looks so better and if front is black and you put black wallpaper it looks like whole screen is one. Also these Ambient display or Moto Display and now always on displays looks better on AMOLED displays.

        Damn they just put SD820, bigger battery and new sense 8 in A9 and that would be awesome phoe for me.

      I moved away from Samsung because of the AMOLED. Super LCD is much brighter and more vivid. I can’t handle the blue whites of AMOLED.

        For long I have been using LCD and it was superior than AMOLED but as a media consumer on my smartphone I like AMOLED better and it’s just a while that I like AMOLED so much. Especially these always on displays and moto display looks better on AMOLED and feel immersive at night. Beside black front with AMOLED feels better. As they feel single piece

        I don’t like Samsung still have S7 edge but I love S7 display and i can now wish that HTC 10 had AMOLED display. I accepted when hear no stereo speakers a feature I deeply love but AMOLED was other feature I am in love with now that is also not in HTC I might but HTC 10 but no in first week. Cuz I am not much excited any more about HTC.

    Looking top notch for HTC 10. Hope they are doing something amazing with the speakers. Specs are spot on with flagships. I’m very impressed and don’t need an Amoled display at all.
