Jeddah – MENA Herald: Mohamad Hamaki, Arab pop-culture icon and HTC social media brand ambassador, is the region’s first recipient of the much-awaited flagship smartphone, the HTC 10. Hamaki’s Topaz Gold HTC 10 combines some of the most advanced smartphone technology with professionally-designed and certified audio capabilities, to be the ideal, portable music playback companion for an iconic musician.

Mohamad Hamaki said: “It is a privilege to be the first Arab to receive the brilliant new HTC 10. A large part of my life is around interacting with people around the world on social media, and the HTC 10’s camera and audio capabilities makes this a natural choice for me. I look forward to creating and sharing experiences widely, and strengthening my community engagement with the power of 10!”

Hamaki has spent time personalizing his HTC 10 experience, creating a unique smartphone experience from a range of visuals and themes, a fully-customisable freestyle layout, HTC Sense Home to toggle between Work and Play modes, HTC BlinkFeed to customize content based on location, and much more.

Intricately crafted and sculpted to perfection, the Hi-Res Audio-certified HTC 10 is an audiophile’s dream, with re-engineered HTC BoomSound™ Hi-Fi edition speakers bringing studio-quality music playback through a separately-amplified woofer and tweeter, or through the Hi-Res Audio headphones that come standard with the device.

The HTC 10 device is a series of firsts – Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 chipset, dual OIS cameras, chamfered edges seamlessly melding metal and glass, and much more.

HTC 10 is now officially launched in the Middle East and Africa, and will be available at leading retailers from the first week of May. Exclusive contracts will also be available from telcos such as Etisalat (UAE) and STC (Saudi Arabia).

HTC recently announced the appointment of Mohamad Hamaki, as its social media brand ambassador. He will work with the consumer electronics brand to establish music and sound quality as the brand’s defining competitive differentiator and also bring unique experiences to HTC users and enthusiasts across the MENA region, giving HTC and Hamaki fans the opportunity to create brilliant memories.
