Taiwanese smartphone manufacturer HTC will reportedly announce its latest flagship device HTC One M10 at a dedicated event on its own and not at the MWC 2016. This may seem a prudent decision because both Samsung Galaxy S7 and LG G5 are going to be released at the MWC.
Many specs of the M10 has already been leaked but until now we didn’t have any picture of the device but a live image of the device has just leaked.
Both the HTC logo and the much-dreaded black bar which housed it has disappeared. We, however, do have a fingerprint sensor which will also act as the Home button at the bottom.
The physical power and volume buttons are located on the right and the power button is textured for the convenience of users. The front-facing speaker grill beneath the display is missing which may mean a goodbye to the much beloved BoomSound speakers.
The body seems to be full metallic like that of its predecessor. According to rumours, the device will feature a 5.1-inch QHD AMOLED display. It will be powered by the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 chipset and will have 4GB of RAM and 32GB of storage (expandable through microSD). The phone will run on Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow with HTC Sense 8 UI on top.
One of the main failures of HTC One M9 was its camera. If rumours are to be believed, HTC may be bringing a 12 MP UltraPixel rear camera with laser autofocus and optical image stabilization in the HTC One M10. The front camera is interestingly reported to be a 4MP shooter with OIS. These specs are yet to be confirmed and we are eagerly waiting for the official release of the device.
