The HTC One M10 might be branded as the HTC 10
According to a couple of reputable tipsters, the HTC One M10 will be branded as the HTC 10.
While Samsung, LG, and Sony have unveiled new flagship smartphones at MWC 2016, HTC has yet to announce a competing product. Following the largely unsuccessful HTC One M9, the iconic smartphone maker has a lot riding on its upcoming flagship, a device that rumors referred to as the HTC One M10.
Back in February, rumors surfaced claiming that the One M10 - a device that's said to be codenamed 'Perfume' internally - will actually be branded under a different name, although at the time, specific details were unavailable. Fast forward to present day and two highly reputable smartphone leaksters have confirmed that HTC's upcoming flagship phone will be known as the HTC 10.
The first to break the word that the HTC One M10 will be branded as the HTC 10 was Evan Blass, the original tipster that's best known by his @evleaks handle on Twitter. A few hours later, another popular leakster known as @ONLeaks has confirmed this information by posting what's supposedly a screenshot taken from the device.
Last week when HTC teased its upcoming smartphone, the company focused on the number 10, leaving out 'One' and 'M' from its official teaser video.
According to previous leaks and rumors, the HTC 10 will come with high-end specs that include a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 chipset paired with 4GB of RAM, a 12MP primary camera with large pixels, a fingerprint scanner, 16/32/64GB internal storage options, a microSD card slot, and Android 6.0 Marshmallow with HTC Sense 8 on top. On the design side, HTC has previously said that the phone will feature a new design not entirely different from that of the HTC One A9.
With rumors claiming that the HTC 10 will be unveiled in April and launched in May, chances are that we'll get to know more about the upcoming device (from both official and unofficial sources) in the upcoming weeks, so stay tuned!
