HTC has revealed that its upcoming smartphone would have a "very, very compelling camera." Now, images of that device, the HTC One M10, have leaked, showing the device from all angles.
Samsung and LG unveiled their 2016 flagship smartphones at this year's Mobile World Congress in February. The Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge are currently available for preorder from all four major carriers, and T-Mobile, AT&T and Sprint have already begun shipping the handsets ahead of their official March 11 release date. All four carriers have pledged to offer the LG G5 in the coming weeks.
While HTC attended Mobile World Congress and launched new smartphones, it didn't announce its 2016 flagship smartphone. Instead, after watching Samsung and LG introduce their new devices, an HTC exec declared that his company was confident its upcoming smartphone would be very compelling.
"We can confidently say that HTC will have a very, very compelling camera experience. We're making this comment after we've seen what's going on in the market," said HTC CFO Chialin Chang.
HTC recently revealed a teaser image of the HTC One M10, which confirmed its rumored chamfered-edge design, and now, press renders of the smartphone have leaked, showing the handset from all angles.
The always-reliable Evan Blass posted what appear to be official press images of the HTC One M10. As you can see in the image above, the HTC One M10 will have a similar design to that of its predecessors but includes chamfered edges and a home button for its embedded fingerprint scanner. The photo also shows its rear UltraPixel camera with dual-LED flash.
The HTC One M10 is expected to feature a 5.1-inch 2,560 x 1,440 quad-HD AMOLED display, and run on Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow with an updated version of HTC Sense 8.0. The smartphone will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor and 4 GB of RAM. Recent reports have claimed the device will ship with three internal storage configurations; 16 GB, 32 GB and 64 GB, in addition to a microSD expansion slot.
An HTC exec said that the smartphone would have a "very, very compelling camera," which is expected to be a 12-megapixel rear camera and 5-megapixel front-facing shooter for video chat and selfies. The handset is also believed to pack in a large 3,000 mAh non-removable battery with Quick Charge 2.0 support and fingerprint scanner embedded in the home button.
HTC is expected to officially take the wraps off of the HTC One M10 at a press event in April. As always, we'll keep you posted on any new HTC One M10 details as they become available.
