HTC teased the cameras on its next flagship smartphone, believed to be called the HTC 10, in a tweet on Tuesday.

"World First, World Class, Front and Back. You'll see," the company tweeted. "#powerof10."

Attached to the tweet is graphic showing two camera lenses -- likely dual-cameras on the rear of the device like the HTC One M9 released in 2015 .

HTC didn't provide any specifics for the camera or why it will be so revolutionary, so we may have to wait until the rumored mid-April launch for the full, specific details. There's no shortage of leaked photos of the handset, however.

Rumors point to the HTC 10 having a 5.1-inch display with a resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor, 4GB of RAM and a "12-UltraPixel resolution and laser-assisted autofocus.". It's not clear what HTC will employ on the software side to make its photos "world first".

"We can confidently say that HTC will have a very, very compelling camera experience," HTC CFO Chialin Chang told our sister-site CNET at Mobile World Congress in February. "We're making this comment after we've seen what's going on in the market."
