HTC is set to announce its new HTC 10 smartphone on Tuesday, but you don’t need to wait until then to find out what it’s going to look like. The leaked ad below reveals the handset’s pretty new form factor a full day early.

We’ve already gotten a glimpse at the HTC 10 in a series of leaked photos and renders, so this video isn’t too surprising — but it is the clearest, most detailed reveal so far. And it confirms a number of rumors that have surfaced in recent weeks.

For instance, the video gives us a good look at the HTC 10’s new BoomSound speakers, which are now appear to be located on the top and bottom edges of the device, rather than the front; its USB-C port, and its laser autofocus sensor.

We can also see large camera lenses on the front and back of the HTC 10, a physical home button (presumably with fingerprint scanner), and a volume rocker and power button situated alongside each other on the right side of the device.


Inside that aluminum unibody, the HTC 10 is expected to carry a 5.3-inch Quad HD display, Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 820 processor, 4GB of RAM, 32GB of expandable storage, and a large battery. It will also run HTC’s latest Sense 8 software based on Marshmallow.
