Rumor: T-Mobile Drops HTC 10 After 3 Months

...

It appears T-Mobile has ended support for the HTC 10 smartphone.

According to a Reddit user "looking to Jump to the HTC 10," the carrier stopped offering the handset in July—three months after its launch.

"I was told [by customer service] I might find them in store, but cannot guarantee it," Redditer spartan_II_117 wrote in a PSA. "Strange to see a phone like this get dropped."

Neither T-Mobile nor HTC immediately responded to PCMag's request for comment.

The HTC 10 (pictured) launched in April with an aluminum shell surrounding a 5.3-inch, 2,560-by-1,440 Super LCD 5 screen. It also boasts a physical home button/fingerprint scanner, and the same 2.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor found in rival devices like Samsung's Galaxy S7 and the LG G5.

The flagship phone comes with 4GB of RAM, a USB-C jack, and support for Quickcharge 3.0.

It's possible you can still find an HTC 10 in the dusty corner of a T-Mobile shop. But any devices remaining are likely to be the last; the Un-carrier doesn't seem to have any plans to replenish its stock.

HTC fans looking for an (albeit lesser) alternative to the 10 can pick up the Desire 530 smartphone, available via T-Mobile and Verizon.

The 5-inch midrange device is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 210 quad-core processor and runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow. It sports a 5-megapixel front-facing camera and 8-megapixel rear shooter, as well as BoomSound.

Available in solid Blue Lagoon, Sprinkle White, or Stratus White colors, the Desire 530 can be customized with HTC's micro-splash—a speckle disbursement effect that ensures no two devices look the same.

HTC introduced its new range of Desire handsets—530, 630, 825—during February's Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.
