HTC One M10 is one of the flagship smartphones we expect to be released during the upcoming MWC 2016 show that is set to begin in Barcelona as from February 22.
As usual, rumors and speculations have been rife and even though the company has yet to confirm any details about this phone, we have already set our eyes on what we believe is a render of the upcoming One M10.
The phone, which has been baptized Perfume, might come with a different look as compared to what many have been used to seeing with HTC models. HTC One M9 is the current flagship and it was unveiled last year. As usual, the Taiwanese company went for its all-metal body that from a distance takes after Apple’s iPhone. This has actually been the trend for many manufacturers recently, but HTC is one of the earlier developers of metallic bodied- smartphones.
Probable look of HTC One M10
According to popular leaker Evan Blass, the new HTC One M10 will come without the usual company-branded black bar just below the display screen.
HTC also unveiled the One A9, a smartphone that the upcoming flagship reportedly resembles as far as design is concerned. With the bar gone, there is no doubt that this will be the first HTC smartphone to wear a different design language. When the render is put alongside its predecessors One M9, One M8 and even One M7, there is a noticeable difference.
Another thing we’ve also noticed about the new HTC One M10 is a rounded home button. This draws further comparisons with the One A9, suggesting that the M10 might also get a fingerprint scanner.
Other rumored specs
In other rumors, it is said that HTC One M10 will feature a 5.1-inch Super AMOLED display screen with a QHD resolution of 1440 by 2560 pixels. Under the hood is a Snapdragon 820 chipset with eight cores and is supported by a RAM of 4GB.
For storage purposes, buyers of this 2016 flagship will get only 32GB of onboard storage on the base model, but it can be expanded using a microSD card. On the rear of the phone you’ll find a 12MP UltraPixel snapper, with auto focus and OIS expected to be shipped on board this camera.
When compared to the One M9, there is no doubt that HTC has reworked this device to come up with an even more powerful smartphone.
Evan Blass is famous for leaking images of smartphones that eventually turn out to be real. We tend to believe that this one will materialize too, however, don’t expect to have the phone in your hands before mid-March.
