Verizon is now selling the flagship HTC 10 with a significant discount of $100 for a limited period of time.
This offer is applicable to Verizon customers purchasing the HTC 10 on a new handset payment plan. The original price of this new device is $648. After discount, the handset can be grabbed for $548 in the U.S. As a first step, buyers may have to order the device online because this deal is not applicable to in-store purchases.
Android Central, on the other hand, says Verizon will waive the activation fee online and to top it off, buyers can avail free shipping service.
Although, Verizon’s official website has a tiny note somewhere in the mid of the page saying “$100 off for a limited time. Online only,” here is the official tweet from HTC confirming the promotional offer:

As for specifications, the HTC 10 features a 5.2-inch display, aided by a QuadHD screen resolution of 1,440 x 2,560 pixels. Under the hood, it comes powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 820 SoC and backed by 4GB of RAM, similar to LG G5, Samsung Galaxy S7 and Xiaomi Mi 5. A solid 3,000 mAh battery unit helps keep the lights on to give two days of battery life after a full recharge.
The HTC 10 comes as 32GB and 64GB native storage variants with a microSD card slot to facilitate expansion. However, the 64GB variant will not be sold in the U.S.
Apart from the standard connectivity options, this handset also supports Type-C 1.0 reversible connector and comes equipped with a fingerprint sensor for authentication.
Camera-wise, the HTC 10 sports a 12-megapixel UltraPixel unit at the back and a 5-megapixel front-facing snapper for selfies. The main camera comes with OIS support and dual-tone LED flash. The icing on the cake is the selfie-clicker’s support for OIS, making it the “world’s first OIS selfie camera.”
