[The rumor mill] HTC Perfume M10 possible specs leaked online

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 M10 should 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.   Source: AndroidPolice

LG Class showed its official face today and it looks and feels just like the mid-range smartphone it is. It was teased last week and now it was apparently time to release it into the world.

Everything is hidden under a 5-inch full HD display. The device will come with Android 5.1 straight out of the box and it is powered by a 2050 mAh battery. Connectivity options include NFC, GPS, Bluetooth and WiFi, of course.   The main rear camera is a 13MP sensor with auto- focus and flash and the front camera has a 8MP sensor. The overall design is similar to previous LG models, with power and volume rockers on the back of the device, under the camera.   LG Class is already available in South Korea for the price of 399,300 won – that’s around $340 – and you will be able to choose it in White, Silver, Gold, and Blue Black.

Sony Xperia Z5 details and photos leak ahead of official launch

Sony Xperia Z5 leaked again in some new tweets and photos. Its imminent launch is closer by the day and it appears that we may get three models instead of just one: Z5, Z5 Compact and Z5 Premium/Plus. The devices should stick to the original Sony brand design which is comprised of squares and metal rails plus glass. It may not be the bestest design right now, but it still retains its charm. Specs and speculation The new Sony Xperia Z5 will sport a 23 MP rear camera sensor, if we are to believe rumors, and it appears that the power button on the side will also include a fingerprint scanner.     Other details separate the three different Z5 versions by specs:     The original Xperia Z5 should have a 5.2 inch screen with 1080p FHD resolution whereas the Compact version will sport a smaller (4.6 inch) screen at 720p resolution. The Premium Z5 should have the biggest screen of all at 5.5 inches with an Ultra-HD 4K display. The last one could be meant to use with the Google Cardboard for VR. We are not sure how well this pixel density will perform on a mobile device, but we will find out at IFA in Berlin in two days time, when the Sony event takes place.
