With the Mobile World Congress just around the corner, we are lavished with rumors and leaks concerning upcoming smartphone premieres. Although Samsung and LG have already confirmed to unveil their new flagships next month, we may not see the HTC One M10 at the expo. Packing plenty of high-end hardware the phone is said to represent a new completely redesigned approach to the HTC flagship line design.
Rumored to debut no sooner than in April, the HTC One M10 is expected to come dressed in a new body and pack multiplicity of top-notch specs
HTC is known for delivering a new flagship early in the year, however this time they seem to need a bit extra time to prepare the HTC One M10 debut. The new leak claims that few already launched prototypes of the One M10 have been sent back to the company’s hardware design division which explains the launch delay.
In other words we should not expect to see the handset this February at MWC 2016 in Barcelona, instead the phone is reported to arrive no sooner than in April. This is surely a bad news for all those One M series fans who started countdown to see the newest member of the HTC’s premium line, however their patience will be rewarded since according to the latest rumors the phone will come to light in a completely new form.
When it comes to the overall design, HTC promises to give the One M10 a look inspired by the HTC A9, but the extent of the similarities is still kind of a mystery. No one really knows how the One M10 will look like, how many interesting changes the phone will bring to the table.
Although we know only so little about the phone’s external appearance, we are a bit more conscious of what it is going to hide inside its new body. Shading some new light on the One M10 specs list the rumor claims that the handset will come powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 chip and deliver high quality photos thanks to its 23MP primary camera sensor. Additionally, the One M10 is also said to be kept alive by energy generated by a 3,000 mAh battery.
Except for all this, the freshest update to the HTC flagship series will allegedly feature a fingerprint scanner and IP68 certification tag for water and dust resistance which makes it the very first waterproof handset within the M line.
Since those information are nothing more than unofficial leaks, as usual we recommend to take it with a pinch of salt. The truth is that the final shape of the One M10 may have nothing in common with all those rumors.
