First HTC One M10 photo leaks out: no resemblance to the One M9
Not long after we heard that the upcoming One M10 (aka Perfume) might not have that peculiar HTC-branded black bar below its display, we can now take a look at what appears to be the very first image of HTC's next-gen flagship smartphone.

Posted today on Twitter by @evleaks, said image shows a device that kind of resembles the One A9 (just as rumored). The HTC-branded bar is indeed gone, so it seems that this will be the first HTC One flagship not to have it, thus looking quite different from its successors: HTC One, HTC One M8, and HTC One M9.

UPDATE: You can check out an enhanced version of the image here. It reveals more details.

Besides not having an HTC-branded black bar, the One M10 features a rounded home button which, just like on the A9, probably includes a fingerprint scanner.

According to recent rumors, the One M10 has a 5.1-inch AMOLED display with 1440 x 2560 pixels (Quad HD), and is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor aided by 4 GB of RAM. 32 GB of expandable internal memory, and a 12 MP UltraPixel rear camera with laser auto focus should also be on board. All in all, the handset will be significantly more advanced than the One M9 (which features a 1080p display, a Snapdragon 810 processor, and only 3 GB of RAM).

Since @evleaks usually reveals images that show real upcoming devices, we're inclined to believe that what we're seeing above is indeed the HTC One M10. The new handset could be officially announced sometime in March. What do you think: does it look better than the One M9?

Used m7 before, it was their best flagship in my opinion. If these spec leaks are real with that htc black bar elimination then htc is getting to the right track. 12mp camera sounds like they're using samsung's britecell sensor. Apple might sue htc for the design then lose because htc was the real pioneer for that metal finish.

That's what makes Sony Xperia Z a Sony Xperia Z. While it's not super comfortable like rounded edge design, it's super elegant and unique. Xperia Zx design is like driving Ferrari 488 vs Galaxy S6 design Aston Martin DBS. They both have their flaws and goods, you just have to pick and choose.

Where is the uniqueness and elegantness of Xperia designs? All I can see is a brick with a screen on it. Please enligth me!
And do not compare those beautiful products with any European crappy cars, please!

I'd argue it's the reverse. Xperia has the classy, understated design of an Aston Martin while Samsung has the flashier, more in your face Ferrari look. It's a matter of taste I guess.

Optical illusion. If you'll see the device in actual it might be small. Don't just rely on one picture, wait for the official release.

Read this article it is a ORIGINAL SOURCE and it's said : Externally, the device’s appearance may still be subject to change, according to the person who used it. Therefore they were unwilling to comment in depth about its aesthetics. http://venturebeat.com/2016/01/28/htc-perfume-to-offer-qhd-amoled-display-laser-assisted-12-ultrapixel-camera/

Hopefully it gets the screen from the S6. Same size, same resolution. And it should be discounted since it's from last season. I think this phone could be great, though. I personally like Apple hardware (who doesn't like the A-series SoCs?) and Android software.

Samsung, LG, HTC and Sony will have to fight for my money this year!

It is a bummer. The front looks like a Meizu phone, and just when I was about to jump to a smartphone with front stereo speakers, HTC went on to ditch them.
With the S7 having that stupid glass back, and now this, it looks like the M9+ Supreme Camera edition will be my next phone.

The reason why I am getting rid of the Note 5 is the size. I want to move back to a 5"-5.2" smartphone for good this time.

I Agree with you! Totally piontless and utter useless to have a back made of glass!

Though 2016 brings quite interesting phones, i am a bit worried about the designs and materiels oems chooses to use! I guess time Will tell

You have to admit it's good they're catching up on internal specs again though. I especially love the switch to OLED panels since they are being tuned as accurately (or more) than LCDs now.

It's just a shame they're taking a step back in design and 'exterior' features. There's still a chance it'll have stereo speakers but if they lose it that was one of HTC's standout flagship features.

Agree. The front metal grill was what made the M7, M8, and M9 unique compared to the rest.

16. Muayyad (Posts: 236; Member since: 05 Oct 2012)


The front of the M9 is fake metal. It is actually a powder coated plastic.

posted on 05 Feb 2016, 14:07

19. maherk (Posts: 3368; Member since: 10 Feb 2012)


Never knew that, my wife had an m8 for 5 months and I always thought it was also metal.
But still, that design was unique in a way, because the vast majority of other smartphones has a full glass fron panel, just like what we see in this picutre.

The device dont look bad but it isn't an htc, what they needed was just to remove the black bar from the m9, now their design team go lazy and just make an iphony design.

Pretty much this. I am racking my brain thinking of something that HTC has to differentiate themselves now. There are a lot of phones with all metal builds, decent cameras and smooth UI's. Unless they thought of some really interesting software tweaks or there are some major hardware functions we don't know about… They just seems like part of the pack now. I wish them luck, because I really don't want to see them fail. But so far I don't see anything to be excited about.

It looks like this year the main differences between devices, yet again, will be UI and build design. All then internal gadgets seem to be the same between devices: SD 820, 4 GB RAM (though I'm sure there'll be differences between the types of RAM), QHD display (though I'm sure LG will be using LCD), and (though this leak doesn't say it) battery capacity of about 3000mAh.

Also, this design looks more like the design of the original Galaxy S phone, just with a different home button and larger front camera.

Quick updates, and exceptional speakers.
I strongly believe that if it wasn't for their bad cameras(compared to other top flagships), the One series would've had a bigger impact on the sales of the Galaxy S and LG G series.

Agreed!

HTC M9 had better ram management ( could open 4-5 big games and switch between them whitout load time or lag ) no other phone currently on the market could do thats.

Most fluid UI of all phone including nexus.

Nice way to update the htc app directly from google play ( many others could learn from this as this is one of the main reason its updated faster for OS update )

About the best build quality around very premium.

but the camera was nearly crap on the M9 my M8 taken better pictures...

35. maherk (Posts: 3368; Member since: 10 Feb 2012)


The problem with the M9 and M8's camera was the inconsistency, it will give you the best shot at times, and other times it will deliver one of the worst pictures you would see from a flagship.

posted on 06 Feb 2016, 01:08

82. WPX00 (Posts: 200; Member since: 15 Aug 2015)


It giving the best shot is rare (if not impossible), but it was also often far from the worst. I firmly believe the media overblew the M9's camera issues, when in reality it really wasn't that bad, just inconsistent and requiring a bit more effort than say, a Galaxy S6.

I chose the M9 Sense software before anything else the phone had to offer. The camera is not as bad as media claims it to be. The only issue with the M9 is the over heating, but it never got to a point where I couldn't hold it in my hands. Check out some of these photos I took with the M9 on my San Francisco trip. Some are taken in auto, HDR, bokeh, and manual modes.

So software is the only thing that is keeping them afloat. Meanwhile LG is has it the other way around, software is bad but camera is great.

Well, if you wanna look different than the others, just buy HTC. There are nothing special from HTC can offers than other OEMs. Boomsound will make you boring. My suggestion is just go for Sony if you did not want to buy Sammy or Apple products. That is my opinion.
