It appears that HTC plans to leave no stone unturned in its bid to capture the market share with its next flagship, the HTC One M10. While the previous flagships failed to garner the desired attention, the Taiwanese company is apparently lacing the One M10 with some really neat specs.
Codenamed Perfume, the One M10 is expected to sport a 5.1-inch QHD display with 2560 x 1440 resolutions. These details come straight from VentureBeat’s source, who got their hands on what is believed to be the HTC One M10 prototype.
According to reports, the muscle underneath the hood includes a Snapdragon 820 system-on-a-chip (SoC) coupled with Adreno 530 graphics. Memory and storage read out as 4GB RAM, 32GB of internal storage. As per TechRadar, there is probably (and hopefully) a microSd card slot onboard HTC’s Perfume. Additionally, the device is expected to be running on Android Marshmallow with the HTC’s Sense 8.0.
One of the key features on the device, as noted by Tech Radar, would be the One M10 handset ditching its predecessor’s 20MP sensor for a 12 UltraPixel primary camera coupled with laser-assisted autofocus capability. In the past HTC has experimented with its own UltraPixel technology on the One M8, released in 2014. It seems like the company is giving this technology another go with the One M10.
Earlier reports indicated a presence of 27MP camera and dual BoomSound speakers. The VentureBeat report suggests the presence of the aforementioned camera and also reveals that the company may just have done away with the Boomsound audio experience on its upcoming flagship. Of course, this is much to the dismay of HTC loyalists. Furthermore, details about the handset’s design are shrouded in uncertainly; but hopefully, more information should surface in the coming months.
Speculations suggest that the HTC One M10 won’t be surfacing at the Mobile World Congress in February, as many fans have expected. As per VentureBeat’s source, HTC may launch the device at a separate event at a later time. Keep coming back for more details.
