Once it arrives from carriers in the United States buyers will need cases, chargers, headphones and other accessories for the new flagship phone.

It’s HTC’s best smartphone in years and has a lot to offer.

During the announcement of this bold new smartphone HTC made sure they talked about a few accessories for the phone.

The HTC 10 is stacking up to be their best phone in years, and one of the best Android devices of 2016. With a beautiful 5.2-inch display, powerful speakers with one front-facing, a fingerprint scanner, all aluminum design, with tons of power and an impressive new camera. It’s rounded out with the latest version of Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow and a large extremely fast charging 3,000 mAh battery.

This is what HTC needed to get back into the smartphone game and compete with Samsung or Apple, and they’ve done exactly that.

When it comes to buying accessories, cases, chargers, and more for smartphones we have a lot of options. However, being an HTC device the options won’t be as endless as Samsung or Apple users, which is why HTC made a few great choices themselves.

Almost everything detailed below is brand new, designed for the HTC 10, or relatively new from HTC and will compliment the smartphone wonderfully. Without further ado, here’s some official accessories for the HTC 10, made by or in partnership with HTC. Click the arrow below to enjoy a slideshow of all the official accessories, and links to buy anything of interest. We’ll add more as other options become available.

HTC Ice View Case

HTC Ice View Case

Following the success and tradition of the popular HTC Dot View case from previous years, HTC has an all-new case for 2016 called the "Ice View Case". Rather than being a flip case with tiny dots all over that lets light shine through for quick notifications, the entire case is "iced" and glazed over, yet still see-through so owners can get information without opening the case.

The HTC Ice View combines protection for your phone with instant accessibility. With this case owners can take photos in a snap, read texts, adjust the volume, switch between songs, turn on the flashlight and much more without ever opening the case and exposing the device. HTC Ice View also supports 3rd party notifications like Instagram, Facebook, Google+ and more.

Double tapping the screen while the phone is off will instantly show users the time, date, battery life (the big circle) and even weather information and incoming notifications. All while still being protected by the front cover. This at-a-glance information can all be heavily themed and customized as users see fit as well.

A quick swipe will show users a text message, give access to volume and music playback controls, or even quickly launch the camera and snap photos. It's a breeze, easy to use, and a case all prior HTC owners have enjoyed.  It's still a nice case, has a HTC branded magnet to turn off the display when closed and much more. Buy one now so it's ready and waiting when the phone is released.

    Why cant HTC release a Car Dock like they did for m7,m8 for this phone I spend a lot of time in my vehicle and need that charging cradle for my phone! I hate stupid universal docks, extra step involved if you want it charging. should be just plug and play.

      I totally agree. The M8 cradle was very good indeed – I tried to adapt it but it was beyond my skill level!

    If you want your Battery to stay factory fresh and last a very very long time. ONLY use the USB to charge it. Never plug in a fast charger.
    The USB uses 3+ volts and the Plug in uses over twice that for a fast charge at the expense of the battery’s life. You will notice that the battery does not heat up with the USB charger and the plug in one will cook the battery to a noticeable amount. That is killing the battery.

      Dan is confusing voltage with amperage. A USB port is always rated at 5V but most chargers use a lower voltage ~4V. It’s the amperage that gets cranked up to 2.4 or 3.0 by Quick Charge v2.0 or v3.0.

      It’s true that charging more quickly at a higher amperage will shorten the life of most batteries of all types. However, it appears that Qualcomm has designed intelligent circuitry into the Quick Charge specs to prevent that. I have not noticed any difference in the temperature of the battery or case when comparing the Quick Charge 3.0 with an older 1A charger.
