HTC 10 goes on pre-order in Romania early, for a hefty Ä740

Peter, 29 March, 2016

Well, Iím starting to understand why HTC may be considering a cheaper version of the HTC 10 - one Romanian phone retailer is charging RON 3,300, or $830/Ä740, for a pre-order. This is for the 32GB version, which is available in Gold, Silver and Grey.

The phone is expected to go on sale April 15 so this price may not be final, but itís likely fairly close. And if thatís true, the 10 will cost more than the Samsung Galaxy S7 and the LG G5 and as much as a basic iPhone 6s.

Not that this is uncharacteristic of HTC, but the company needs to generate revenue, so it canít afford to scare away potential buyers with a steep price tag. Itís already at a disadvantage for launching so late.

The HTC 10 will take the rounded aluminum design of the A9 and spruce up the specs to flagship level - 5.15Ē QHD screen (LCD probably), Snapdragon 820 chipset with 4GB of RAM and a 12MP camera.

Thanks to Claudiu and Mihai for the tips!
