Samsung Galaxy S7, LG G5 and the Xiaomi Mi 5 have been reported to be unveiled sometime around the MWC 2016 event. It’s quite apparent that the flagship device from HTC did not make it to the elite list. Rumors and leaks specific to the HTC One M9 successor have not been substantial thus far. Thanks to a Chinese source, we now know why there’s relatively less news about the HTC One M10.
Similar to Samsung and LG, HTC also follows the same pattern of launch for its flagships. But IT Home said that the Taiwanese company may not introduce the HTC One M10 at the MWC event. Alternatively, this device will see the light of the day in March. This will be followed by an official release in April across the globe.
Like every year, HTC apparently planned to use the MWC 2016 event to launch the flagship. However, the delay was unavoidable because the company management was not satisfied with the initial prototypes from the design team and eventually, they asked them to re-work. Because of the ambitious new design, the HTC One M10 announcement has been postponed to March.
As far as the rumored specs go, the One M10 will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 chipset. On the software front, Marshmallow version of Android will run the device with HTC Sense 8.0 on top of it, GSM Dome reported.
This device will apparently come equipped with a fingerprint scanner for authentication. A solid 23-megapixel rear-facing camera has also been rumored to be part of the handset.
Speaking of battery configuration, a 3,000 mAh cell will keep the lights on. Similar to Sony handsets, HTC is believed to opt for IP 68 rating for water and dust resistance, GSM Arena reported.
