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."
