HTC will not announce their new year flagship during MWC with LG and Samsung, but they are expected to do so in the coming weeks. Way before the official announcement, Evan Blass (@evleaks) managed to snatch a photo of the alleged device and you can see it below.
M10 seems to look a whole lot like the A9, especially in regards to the button style and the layout. Under the screen you can see a fingerprint scanner that may double as a home button (the button itself is rounder than the one on HTC A9, which makes it seem even more similar to an iPhone device). On the front you get a large camera module, but there are no HTC logos on the front of the device in the picture and the Boomsound speakers are also missing.
Blass previously mentioned that HTC M10 will be powered by a Snapdragon 820, 4GB of RAM, and it will have a 5.1-inch 1440×2560 QHD AMOLED screen. We will find out more about the device soon. In the meantime, do you think the device in the picture is indeed HTC’s newest flagship device?
HTC may not have had the best 2015, but things can change if they manage to pull out a great flagship this year. HTC Perfume M10 could be that success… if luck is on the OEM’s side. Rumors are starting to spread on the Interwebz, and some say that Perfume is M10, the 2016 flagship for HTC. It should have the best specs ever seen into a phone made by the manufacturer.
According to @evleaks, AKA Evan Blass, HTC will have the same AMOLED display it has been sporting on the A9. The display will be 5.1-inch large and it will have 1440p resolution. On the inside you could find a Snapdragon 820, 4GB of RAM, plus 32GB of storage. HTC is rumored to return to its UltraPixel sensor on the rear camera, but its resolution will be boosted to 12MP.
HTC M10should have a fingerprint sensor as well, and it will be settled on the front of the device. When it comes to the OS, M10 should launch with Android 6.0.1 with Sense 8 UI, making it available for fingerprint support from the OS as well. One interesting change is the lack of Boomsound speakers. That’s all for the leaks and rumors so far. HTC is expected to drop some new info regarding their new devices sometime this spring.
HTC One M10 could be the company’s last attempt at a new smartphone – HTC’s rumored Snapdragon 820 smartphone may very well be the last one they produce, especially if it will not be a success as big as the HTC One in 2013 and its follow-up.
A Chinese site reports that the device may be officially announced by the end of October 2015, despite the M9 model launch earlier this spring. This is by no means an official statement, which means we are developing this article on a mere possibility right now, so bear with us.
It is impossible to know how much an HTC One M10 will cost, but we can speculate its price based on previous models. The newest HTC smartphone should cost somewhere around $800 if its spec is top of the line and fi it presents itself as a flagship.
The new HTC device is rumored to be rebranded as an HTC O2, and its name will not be the last thing that changes it. This is rumored to be a totally revamped smartphone with very different components and software compared to previous HTC One models.
The device is expected to sport a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor, the newest of the line. This change could improve on the sales numbers that kind of plummeted this year because of the HTC One M9 processor overheating problem. The Snapdragon 820 is supposed to be 35% faster than the 810 and just as better when it comes to power efficiency.
HTC One M10 ‘s processor should be accompanied by no less than 4 GB of RAM. Design-wise, the device is rumored to have a full metallic body, much like the M9, plus water resistance capability. The device is also said to have a 6 inch 1440×2560 QHD display, 1 inch bigger than the M9.
The rumor mill also includes a 20.7MP f/1.9 aperture sensor plus a 5MP front-facing camera. Everything could be powered by a 3,500 mAh battery and 64/128GB of storage.
Since it is going to be released sometime in 2016, HTC One M10 will launch with Android marshmallow, Google’s most recent OS. Of course, it should also have USB Type C support, Android Pay and improved security. A smaller HTC One M10 version with a 5 inch screen is rumored to launch sometime in 2016 and it is said to have a Snapdragon 82x processor as well.
