HTC is expected to make some big design changes to its flagship smartphone this year. The company has learnt a lot from the M9 mess it did a year ago – don’t get us wrong, M9 was a fantastic device and is still is – exceptional built quality, tremendous sound and has one of the best Android skins; but the 1080p screen, dismal camera hardware and the same old design failed to bring enough oomph to the table that was expected from a 2015 flagship.
A leaked live image
Popular leakster evleaks have posted a live image of the front of a device that he claims to be the next HTC flagship. Quite noticeably, what’s making a departure are a pair of front-firing speakers a.k.a. HTC BoomSound (or a part of HTC BoomSound). Also, gone is the infamous ‘Black Bar’ and HTC logo is nowhere to be seen at the front. Clearly seen is a Fingerprint Sensor implanted on the chin of the device. Quite clearly the device looks like an evolution of the One A9.
A fan made render
An alleged picture of the M10 has been drawn into a render, showing the possible look from the rear and sides as well. This fan render was posted on XDA Forums.
The alleged specs of the upcoming HTC One flagship includes a 5.2″ AMOLED display, a Snapdragon 820 SoC along with 4GB RAM, a 12MP UltraPixel camera, Fingerprint Sensor and a full metal built.
