The HTC 10 may go on sale in the company’s domestic market, Taiwan, just days after being unveiled to the world. The forthcoming flagship smartphone is set to be shown off for the first time on 12 April, and now a Taiwanese outlet is reporting that it could go on sale in the country just three days later.
The report that the HTC 10 will be available from 15 April comes from ePrice. If true, although it would mean that HTC would have unveiled its 2016 flagship smartphone sometime behind rivals Samsung and LG, the Taiwanese company would be able to tempt potential buyers with the news that they would not have to wait long to get their hands on the device.
Previously, Twitter tipster @evleaks stated that the HTC M10 would be available in US retailers from the week of 9 May – this in itself would represent a relatively fast turnaround after the 12 April launch.
Although Android Wafer believes it is possible that Taiwan my see the HTC 10 go on sale first, there is not likely to be a much of a gap – if any, at all – between the European and North American release dates.
