Entry Description

Wrapped in military-grade aluminum, finished with
zirconium bead blasting and featuring a distinctive
3.3mm chamfer, the HTC 10 is a deliberate celebration
of metal that gives HTC’s latest flagship phone a new
and distinctive identity.

Defining the design is the 10’s immediately recognizable
and distinctive visual feature: the 3.3mm chamfer that
runs around the outer edge and gives the phone a bold
new silhouette. The chamfer accentuates the iconic
curved back of earlier HTC models, which gives the
phone a comfortable, yet precise, feel in the hand. The
glass in front is rounded along the edges to make an
elegant transition from the metal. The 10’s exterior is
comprised of just two pieces, metal and glass. Fewer
parts results in smaller tolerances, and therefore a more
premium feel.
