HTC Teases Its New One M10 Smartphone

After the chaos of MWC and the announcement of both the Samsung Galaxy S7 and LG G5, now it's HTC's turn. Without sharing too much about its new phone, we know that it's almost certainly going to be called the One M10, and HTC is slowly building up a bit of hype for its latest flagship.

That post, along with a more recent video talking about HTC's obsession with making new stuff, are the two official hints we have towards the One M10; the photo above suggests a chamfered bezel on the front edge of the phone not too dissimilar to the Samsung Galaxy Note 4, while leaked images of the front of the phone look similar to an iPhone 6.

The new phone's camera is widely expected to pair a 12-megapixel sensor with a f/1.9 lens. Dutch site TechTastic also suggests leaks show internal hardware roughly equivalent with this year's Samsung and LG flagships -- a Snapdragon 820 quad-core processor and 4GB of RAM, all running through a 5.2-inch Quad HD (2560x1440 pixel) AMOLED display.

That would put HTC's screen one step ahead of the 5.3-inch LG G5 and one step behind the 5.1-inch Samsung Galaxy S7 in pixel density, but as always it's the software that sets flagship smartphones apart -- and HTC will have to make a significant overhaul to its Sense UI if it wants to stay current against Samsung's increasingly refined TouchWiz and LG's colourful interface, as well as offer competition to a newly revived Xiaomi.

    The UI is the only thing HTC ever did better than the others! It was always smoother and more intuitive than every other branded UI. I would still be using my m8 if it didn't have such craptacular camera firmware (the camera app itself was a delight).

    I'm intrigued to see if they can win me back with this one. It's new phone time for me, and the s7 and g5 have left me cold.

    That thing looks so out of date...

      That's a picture of the M7 from like 3 years ago, so I'm not surprised.

      Source: I have one sitting in front of me right now.

    I believe the image of the chamfered bezel is of the rear of the phone?

    Looks like the M7. Not that that's a bad thing...

      That's not a picture of the new phone, that's literally just a picture of the M7 for some reason.

    Can you believe the leaks that it may only have 16GB of internal memory ??????? In an effort to undercut the competition. 16GB when android now takes up 6 GB is foolhardy and useless. I have a 16GB S4 and the internal memory is all but gone despite my best efforts to move apps and other info to the SD card. Some apps and files just cant be moved on to the SD card. It sucks cause I wont buy it if it only has 16GB. Hell even 32GB is not THAT great. Shame if its true as the HTC 10 looks very good.
