The specifications of the HTC’s upcoming flagship smartphone, the One M10, have supposedly been leaked by a person who was granted access to a prototype. According to a report by Venture Beat, the device (codenamed Perfume) will run Android Marshmallow v6.0.1 with HTC’s Sense UI layered over it. The device may come with a 5.1-inch QHD display with a resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels. The person who held the device believed it to be an AMOLED panel. He also added that the device would offer a fingerprint scanner that was located on the home button.
According to Venture Beat’s report, the HTC One M10 may be powered by a Qualcomm new flagship chipset, the Snapdragon 820 with Adreno 530 graphics. The device is tipped to come with 4GB of RAM and 32GB of onboard storage, which can be expanded via a microSD card. It was also reported that the device won’t come with HTC’s BoomSound stereo speakers. However, the company may choose to use an upgraded variant of their UltraPixel camera technology in the form of a 12MP UltraPixel rear camera with Optical Image Stabilisation (OIS). In addition, the front camera may come with OIS, but it wasn’t specified which sensor would be used.
Last week, it was reported that HTC may be working on two variants of the One M10. One variant would be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 SoC, while the other would be a MediaTek processor. It wasn’t mentioned which MediaTek processor would be used, but it might be the Helio X20. Additionally, the Snapdragon 820 variant of the device may be for the US and European markets, while the MediaTek powered version might be sold in China and South-East Asia.
It was earlier believed that HTC would be launching its new flagship device at the World Mobile Congress event that’s scheduled to be held in Barcelona next month. However, rumours suggest that this will not happen as the device is delayed. As per reports, high-ranking HTC officials have sent back prototypes of the device as they weren’t satisfied with the design of the phone. The company may hold a separate event in March to announce the HTC One M10 and the phone may be available for purchase in April.
