HTC One M10 (Perfume) seemingly headed to AT&T, could resemble the One A9

Last month, we told you that HTC's next flagship smartphone could be called HTC Perfume, and should be launched running Android 6.1 Marshmallow with Sense 8.0 UI. Most likely, Perfume is just a codename for the rumored HTC One M10, which is expected to be officially unveiled in the near future, possibly in March (if not at MWC 2016 in February).

According to a screenshot revealed by Evan Blass (aka @evleaks), the Perfume / One M10 is headed to AT&T. Of course, this should not come as a surprise, since we're expecting all major US carriers to sell HTC's new flagship smartphone at some point.

Evan Blass also mentioned that "if you like the A9, you'll love the M10." This could mean that the One M10 will resemble the HTC One A9 - pictured above - when it comes to design. If that's the case, the M10 might be a thin, all-metal handset with a fingerprint sensor on the front, and an overall look that draws similarities to Apple's iPhone 6 series.

The HTC One M10 may have two variants: one powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor, and another one powered by a MediaTek processor, with the latter likely being made for Asian markets. Rumors have it that the One M10 will be water-resistant (IP68-certified). This would be an improvement over the splash resistance (IPX3-certification) of the One M9 and One M8.

Would you be happy with an A9-like One M10?

He is somewhat right. HTC is used to mess up with something every year.

I like to see an HTC nexus, but the last thing android wants is an iphone clone to showcase its advancements.

Lol. I don't see any resemblance between the s6 and iphone. The A9 on the other hand, is an iPhone running Android.

Aluminium case with a brushed metal finish
Combined home button with fingerprint sensor (tap not swipe)
Rounded – or ‘chamfered’ – corners
Speakers, connector and headphone ports in same configuration
Plastic antenna bands
Built-in, non-replaceable battery
Protruding camera assembly
White moulded earbuds

And not to mention the A9 is an iPhone copy with a sa!sing button. That's the fact, search on gumtree, the sellers of A9 even said that "if you like the iPhone, you'll like the A9, becuase they are both the same but running on Android" there's no doubt the A9 is an iPhone clone

Oh, are we still pretending like apple didn't copy the white antenna lines of the HTC M7 and it's HTC copying apple?

It is probably Apple copied the Antenna lines, but HTC copied the whole iPhone 6 design from A to Z.

Sad to see a former great company being desperate like this.

Stop this bull*hit. They copied both each other and don't forget they share patents so who cares. And btw, like there weren't a lot other handsets that look similar to iphone. Only HTC gets most of hate for that.

It's B to Z, because A = Antenna, which everyone claims that Apple copies from HTC. So its B to Z

"it is probably apple copied the antenna lines"... "probably".. which part leaves any doubt?

Look, You people can't have it both ways. Either HTC has been releasing the same design for 3 years in a row or they copied the iPhone which copied the M7. Choose one. You can't hate on them for both at the same time. Doesn't work that way.

And this is why they are on the brink of bankruptcy. You can release the same design 3 years in a row. Maybe even 4 years because M7 was the same design. Exactly why I don't want them to make anything Nexus

HTC phones are too big for their screen size. Need to get the Screen to Body ratio up to at least 70, preferably even higher

I would like to see an A9 like M10, with 5.2 inch display, and without those ugly black bars.

Yeah fuq HTC for their decisions to use mediatek chips if it is true. Flagship phone with mediatek chips after a poor sales in 2015 is a really nice idea to bring the company down. So RIP HTC in my opinion. They are going to regret.

Sorry but there is nothing the same on the s6 that looks. Like the iPhone 6, also the iPhone 6 is a copy of the 1st Samsung Windows 8 phone

The s6 does not even have the antenna lines in the same area, unlike lg (G5) and htc

When the phone 1st came out they just said the end look the same, that was a joke, they got the speaker on the rights but the holes are not the same and it looks nothing like it

I.e. The iPhone 6 is a copy of a Samsung phone design, if I was Samsung I take them to court

The S6 is nothing but an iPhone 4 with iPhone 6 frame. It's a total ripoff. I'd say it copies Experia phones as well.

I'd say Apple copied samsung's phone screen size too? 5.5 inches is exactly the same as the Note 2 and what happened to the once "perfect" FOUR inches size screen?

"if you like the A9"... All 4 of them just got the A9, they won't be upgrading any time soon.
