HTC recently released a powerful teaser video of its One M10 handset, showing how much effort the company invests in building the perfect flagship for its users. It is not surprising that after the disastrous M9 reception, media and tech enthusiasts are eagerly waiting to see what is in store for the next-generation flagship.
Not long ago, rumors suggested that the upcoming HTC One M10, also referred as “HTC M10,” will come as a Windows 10 Mobile variant along with the regular Android 6.0 Marshmallow version. But now, the credible tipster Evan Blass of @evleaks fame says that a Windows 10 variant is not on the cards. Looking at his tweet, it’s quite apparent that many HTC fans are eagerly waiting to hear about the Windows variant of the M10.
Meanwhile, GSM Arena reminded that HTC released a Windows Phone variant of the One M8 smartphone in 2014. Except for the OS, the innards and design were identical to the original Android version. However, HTC did not release a Windows version of the One M9 in 2015. Now, Blass has confirmed that such a Windows 10 variant will not materialize for the M10 either.
As far as the rumored HTC One M10 specifications go, a 12-megapixel rear-facing sensor with support for optical image stabilization (OIS) and laser auto focus will apparently be part of the device. Under the hood, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 820 chipset will power the handset with 4 GB of RAM on board.
Moreover, the HTC One M10 release date has been rumored to be sometime in March and the device will hit the store shelves in May.
Here is the tweet from @evleaks confirming there will be no Windows 10 variant for the M10:
