The HTC 10 will cost more than the Galaxy S7 on contract at Bell

24

The HTC 10 will cost more than the Galaxy S7 on contract when it goes on sale at Bell this Friday.

According to sources close to Android Central, the HTC 10 will cost $349.99 on a 2-year contract at its exclusive carrier on April 29, with an outright price of $899.99 — $100 less than HTC's retail price for the handset unlocked.

While the HTC is one of the finest devices on the market at the moment, it does have its fair share of issues, including, according to our own Phil Nickinson, some lingering camera problems that, despite claims to the otherwise, likely won't get magically fixed through a software update.

While smartphones often debut at the high end of their pricing curve, it is concerning that the HTC 10 will be more expensive than the Galaxy S7, which costs $299.99 on contract at the moment. Still, given the weak Canadian Dollar, it comes in lower than we thought.

Pricing will officially be reflected on Bell's site in the coming days.

Samsung is testing a new TouchWiz launcher leveraging the Vulkan API for power savings

108

Vulkan isn't just for gaming — it has real-world benefits in daily phone use.

If it wasn't clear by now, the Vulkan API is a very big deal when it comes to gaming and graphical performance on mobile devices. Samsung was early to the game when it announced the Galaxy S7 would have Vulkan support, and since then several devices have joined in; and now the Android N Developer Preview includes operating system-level support for Vulkan.
