After the disappointing reception of One M9, HTC is apparently gearing up to release the successor while a purported photo of the HTC One M10 is currently making waves online. The device has relatively less bezels when compared to the predecessor HTC One M9.
Tipster Evan Blass has tweeted a White variant of the HTC One M10, also referred internally as HTC Perfume. Many Twitter users have commented saying the device looks like a hybrid of Apple and Samsung flagships.
Apart from showing front of the device, the image doesn’t give any other information. Not long ago, HTC had acknowledged that the company will take design cues from the well-received upper-mid-range HTC One A9 smartphone.
As far as the specifications go, the HTC One M10 will reportedly flaunt a 5.2 or 5.1-inch display and 1,440 x 2,560 pixels screen resolution with a possible AMOLED display technology. Under the hood, as expected, it will come powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 820 processor.
Past rumors, on the other hand, suggested that HTC will use the Qualcomm chipset on those devices headed to the U.S. and Europe. However, other markets will receive a MediaTek chipset powered flagship device.
When it comes to camera configuration, HTC has been rumored to bring the notorious UltraPixel unit back to the fore. A 12-megapixel UltraPixel rear-facing snapper will apparently be mounted on the handset with support for optical image stabilization (OIS) and laser-assisted auto focus in tow.
The days of 3 GB RAM units are gone and hence, this handset will reportedly come backed by a solid 4 GB of RAM, similar to the rumored LG G5 and Samsung Galaxy S7. From the software end, it will run Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow OS with HTC Sense 8 UI on top of it.
Speaking of release date, Phone Arena says, HTC will unveil the One M10 in March. Following which, the handset will hit the store shelves sometime in May.
