HTC is preparing to release its HTC One S9 and HTC 10 in May 2016. The first one is a mid-range which looks identical to the One M9, while the other is the new flagship which ditched the “One” branding”. Today we’re going to compare these two handsets and let you decide which one of them suits your needs better.
The HTC One S9 measures 144.6×69.7×10.1mm and weights 158 grams. Likewise the One M9, it has a curved aluminum body with two lines on the back, but it’s 0.5mm thicker, although the battery has the same capacity. On the other hand, the HTC 10 is slimmer and heavier, as it measures 145.9×71.9x9mm and weights 161 grams. It has a full metal body as well, but with chamfered edges.
The HTC One S9 has a Super LCD display of 5-inch that supports a resolution of 1920×1080 pixels at 441 ppi. The HTC 10 has a bigger Super LCD5 display of 5.2-inch that supports a higher resolution of 2560×1440 pixels at 565 ppi.

The HTC One S9 features a Mediatek MT6795 Helio X10 chipset, an octa-core Cortex A53 CPU clocked at 2.0GHz, a PowerVR G6200 graphics card and 2GB of RAM. The HTC 10 has a Qualcomm MSM8996 Snapdragon 820 chipset, a quad-core processor formed from a quad-core Kryo processor clocked at 1.6GHz and a quad-core Kryo processor clocked at 2.15GHz, an Adreno 530 graphics card and 4GB of RAM.
