Widely referred by technology portals as “HTC One M10,” the Taiwanese tech giant’s upcoming flagship will apparently be called “HTC Perfume.” Here, readers can check out the key configuration details of the device shared by a regular tipster.

Based on the information tweeted by the credible tipster @LlabTooFeR, the HTC Perfume, also known as HTC One M10, will come packed with Android 6.1 Marshmallow OS, straight out of the box. However, Google has not released the Android 6.1 version yet.

Also, it is worth noting that other than the Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P, the recently released HTC One A9 also came with Android 6.0 Marshmallow on board. Hence, it’s not surprising that, HTC would opt for the latest OS version for the upcoming flagship. To top it off, a new version (v8) of the custom Sense UI will reportedly be on board the device.

The same tipster says HTC was initially working on a flagship dubbed “HTC O2.” However, this project has since been scrapped.

According to earlier rumors picked up by GSM Arena, the HTC O2 was expected to come powered by the latest Snapdragon 820 SoC and backed by a killer 4 GB of RAM. The phone was also rumored to flaunt a humongous 6.0-inch display, packed with a QHD screen resolution. Other reported configurations include 64 GB and 128 GB of native storage space, along with a powerful 3,500 mAh battery cell to keep the lights on for a longer period of time.

As of today, there’s no credible information available to ascertain if HTC has abandoned the project altogether or has it re-started the same under the new name HTC Perfume. It’s just a matter of time before we get to know the complete details of the new flagship. Until then, readers are advised to take the reported HTC Perfume specifications with the proverbial pinch of salt as the company has not confirmed any device-related information thus far.
