HTC One M10 allegedly leaks again: chamfered design, camera module, and antenna bands get pictured
We are amidst MWC 2016, and the major phone makers debuted their newest gadgets. Samsung showed us the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge, LG unveiled the G5 and its "Friends", Sony surprised us with three Xperia phones, and finally, HTC also chimed in with the Desire 530, 630, and 825. None of the latter is a flagship, and neither is the One X9, which also got silently re-announced yesterday.
Indeed, we expect HTC to succeed the One M9 with the M10 this year. In fact, rumors about this device have been flying around for some time, though it's sometimes rolling under the "Perfume" codename. Evan Blass, a.k.a. evleaks, even gave us a sneak peek of the front of the anticipated flagship, which revealed that it might pack an oval home button, which will most likely house the fingerprint scanner.
Today, a new leak from China micro-blogging website Sina Weibo hit us, claiming to show the back side of the HTC One M10. We get see the camera unit, which seems like it's a little bit protruding. As a refresher, rumors say it will be a 12MP UltraPixel snapper. To the right of it, we see a dual-tone LED flash; the black thingy right below the flash might, or might not be a vertically-positioned laser-assisted auto-focus system system.
We've got clearly visible antenna bands, too, with what appears to be a noise-cancelling microphone. At the left, there's a hint of a hardware button, most probably the power Finally, there's a small cutout at the very top of the phone, which is most certainly a 3.5mm top-positioned audio jack. As far as the design of the phone is concerned, it looks like its made of metal, which is unsurprising. We also get to see lots of bevels this time around. That's not typical of HTC, as most of its devices usually feature more curved lines, but there's no law forbidding the Taiwan-based manufacturer from spicing things up in the design department. As usual, take this leak with a grain of salt and make sure to share any thoughts you might have in the comments section.
