HTC One M10 to Launch in April
There have been so many rumours regarding the launch of HTC’s upcoming flagship that it’s hard to tell the real from not. Initially, it was rumoured that HTC would launch the One M10 at MWC in February, but later we found that HTC wanted to hold an event of its own in March. Now, fresh rumours claim that HTC will hold its standalone event for the One M10 on the 11th of April.
Now, while HTC has yet to confirm these rumours, we’ll just have to wait a little longer to see if HTC has a device that can bring the company back from the brink of death. HTC need to pull something spectacular out of its hat if it wants to compete with the likes of Samsung, LG and Xiaomi’s upcoming flagship. The One M9 and One A9 did little to help HTC in terms of sales and image. While the One M9 was hated for the HTC logo band on the front, the One A9 was criticised for its apparent iPhone 6 rip-off.
From what we know about the One M10, the device looks a lot less like the One M9 and a lot more like the One A9. Renders show that the newest flagship ditches the front facing BoomSound dual speakers and the logo band, while the rest of the phone is pretty One A9-ish.
The rumoured specs of the One M10 suggest a 5.1-inch QHD AMOLED touchscreen, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 820 chipset powering the device with 4GB of RAM, 32GB of storage and a microSD card slot. On the camera front lies a 12 MP UltraPixel rear camera with laser autofocus and optical image stabilization. The device will likely run Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow with HTC Sense 8 atop.
