If all the leaks, rumors and speculation floating around at the moment is anything to go by, it looks like HTC is preparing to unveil its latest flagship smartphone, the One M10, at Mobile World Congress in three weeks time. Although we’ve heard some chitter-chatter about what the handset is likely to pack internally, we’ve picked up nothing on the radar regarding the device’s shell. However, reliable tipster Evan Blass has taken to his beloved Twitter account to share his latest slice of inside information.
The tweet simply states: “If you like the A9, you’ll love the M10.” This leads us to believe that the Taiwanese company has adopted the same iPhone-like slim, metal unibody arrangement for the upcoming flagship that it used in its latest mid-ranger. It could also be a reference to the firm’s new Sense user interface, which has been toned down to comply with Google’s Material Design guidelines and to give a more stock Android user experience.
Unfortunately, that’s all the information Evan Blass provided on this occasion. However, recent reports suggest that the One M10 will sport a Snapdragon 820 System-on-Chip (SoC), 4GB of RAM, a 23-megapixel rear-facing camera equipped with Optical Image Stabilization (OIS), an 8-megapixel front-facing shooter, a super-fast fingerprint scanner, IP68 water/dust resistance and a 3,000mAh non-removable Li-Po battery, which will have a standby time of 410-hours whilst operating on a 3G connection.
