HTC 10 to be launched in India soon

HTC is wasting no time in bringing its new flagship HTC 10 to India, one of the few markets where it is still raking in significant sales.

Faisal Siddiqui, HTC’s president for South Asia, said: “We are pleased to announce that global flagship HTC 10 is coming soon to India. Stay tuned for the announcement and the availability date.” Incidentally, the last flagship, the HTC One M9, did not make it to India.
