The new HTC is coming, whether it is going to be called the HTC One M10, or it will be just the HTC 10. Regardless of what it’s final name is, one thing we know for certain is that HTC is gearing up for a somewhat radical departure in design, moving away from the looks of the HTC One M9.
You can see some images on @onleaks, which was immediately followed by a detailed press render of the device from @evleaks. As expected, the new HTC 10 removes boom sound front-facing speakers in favor of a design that’s more akin to the HTC One A9 – especially on the front side. Taking the place of front-facing speakers is a front-facing fingerprint scanner built into the phone’s home button, which is flacked by two capacitive keys.
About the specs, namely we’ll see a 5.15-inch QHD display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 with an Adreno 530 GPU, 4GB RAM, a 12MP main cam, and USB Type C for charging. That said, these are “prototype” specs, so the final model might differ slightly.
Based on what we currently know, what do you think of the HTC 10? Is HTC heading in the right direction with this one? How important are front-facing speakers to you? Please share your thoughts with us.
