HTC dropped a hint that BoomSound, or something like it, will be a feature on the new phone. Tweeting from the official account, HTC said, “Here comes the new boom. You’ll hear it.” This came with an image saying Audio 10 with outlines of HTC’s well-known speaker grill design, plus several unidentified cutouts that may match the speaker grill on the base of the phone, spotted in leaks of the phone’s chassis.
Just in case you’re still doubting the HTC 10 will have BoomSound, HTC tweeted out a new teaser video confirming it. Not only does the video clearly mention BoomSound by name, a bold promise was made. HTC is touting the “best BoomSound yet” with flawless high fidelity.
