In a continuation of HTC’s #powerof10 tease campaign for their soon to be launched HTC 10 ‘flagship’ Android device the company has today tweeted out “Here comes the new boom. You’ll hear it.” As seen below this is accompanied by what looks to be an image of a smartphone speaker with Audio to the power of 10 written on it.

For fans of Stereo front facing speakers HTC has long held a special place for their inclusion of the afore mentions speakers that were capable of delivering decent audio at impressive levels for a smartphone. Alas it is unlikely that the HTC 10 will in fact have stereo front facing speakers. If you look at all of the render leaks so far (shown below) there are no indication that front facing, or even stereo, speakers are including in the new hardware.
What seems more likely is that HTC is keeping their “boom” branding for high quality audio without the inclusion of the two speakers. Without the stereo speakers to back up the “boom” feature it is hard to tell how this will be received by those who previously enjoyed the boom sound experience.
How is HTC’s latest flagship shaping up for you? let us know in the comments.
